    No, but thanks for the suggestion, I just might! I do have a pile of books waiting to be read though, probably about 30.

    Greg, if you have not read My Family and Other Animals, by Gerald Durrell, you might want to check it out.
    Thanks for the suggestion. James has such a great way of describing his patients and their owners! Cracks me up.

For a plot synopsis, I'll just say it starts out with some guys finding a small crashed plane with a large quantity of money in it . . .
    Earlier this year I read "The Ruins" by the same author. I thought it was great in a nihilistic, bleak, and horrific way. It was a horror novel so it did it's job and did it well. I find it interesting that he has not published any other novels, because he is so talented.
    On your recommendation I brought ďA Simple PlanĒ with me on vacation. About 3/4 through it. It is certainly a page turner! And I agree, stressful, like a slow motion train wreck from which one just canít look away.

    I'm glad you are enjoying it!

    I've started the Miss Read Fairacre series. Very cozy, English countryside type books. Very enjoyable for right now.

    Breaking Night, by Liz Murray, one of those overcoming adversity books. I've read about 10%; not sure how much more I'll slog through.

    My choices aren't so cerebral.

    Everything by Joe Abercrombie.

    The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius (working on self discipline for weight lifting)

    I've been interested in anthropology, so Im trying to get a college syllabus? Text books? for that subject. Being out of work is going to put that off, it doesnt look cheap.

    Oh, rereading all of Edgar Rice Buroughs, on audiobook.

    My town library closed, and that sucks.
