It was great like the rest, left me hanging AGAIN! Grrr.

Any Koontz fans here? I know there were some. The third book in the Frankenstein series was slated to come out this summer and I cannot find any info on it at all. I'm waiting on pins and needles for this one!

If anyone knows, let me in on it, would ya?!

Not the first time a book release has been delayed. I feel your pain though. "The Soloman Key" was supposed to be out already and the only info I can get is that it will be out some time in '07.

I am just finishing up The Milagro Beanfield War. I read it as a teen 20 years ago. I am getting more outta this time around - makes me miss living in NM. The other day on the subway I saw 2 separate folks on different trains reading 1984. Hadnt even thought about that book, since, well, 1984. I think that is my next one.

I'm currently reading Financial Champion or Fiscal Fool. It's been great so far. I haven't learned much that I didn't already know, yet. But, then again, I'm only on Chapter 1. Should be a good read!

Very cool read about a Scot who walked across Afghanistan in 2002. You learn a lot about the history and culture of the nation. Stewart really puts a human face on the citizens there.

Impatient is my normal wait mode for books.

I just got "Fortress of Ice" by C.J. Cherryh from the library last night. It's been so long since her last Fortress book that I thought she was done wiht the series (and could have been with the way the fourth one ended).

I finished "Clear and Present Danger" last night (in a rush, right after getting back from the library ). Not Clancy's best book, but not bad either.

Im currently reading these recreationally:

"Neurophilosophy" by Churchland
"The Wilderness World of John Muir" by Muir
"The Ragamuffin Gospel" by Manning
and
"Republic" by Plato

I'm an ADD reader..I bounce back and forth until I finish them. I always have a few books on the burner.

The Ragamuffin Gospel is an awesome book. I've read it several times. I always get something new out of it each time.

This is my second time through. I find myself needing to understand grace more and more as I grow older. Manning has a good grasp on it.

I picked up "Runaway Jury" at the thrift shop just to see if he was as good as the hype (and because it was only $1.50). Since then I've picked up two more and am looking for even more.

Robert Byron, "The Road to Oxiana" is an interesting travel journal across Afghanistan, Iran. Written in 1923 I believe. Check it out.

The Stand by King and Controversy creates cash by Eric Bischoff. The Stand is the longest book I've ever read at 1141 pages (The 1988 extended edition). The other was a buisiness/wrestling book about a guy who made ted turner a little money

He's just like Crichton imo ... downhill with every new book. "The Last Juror" and "State of Fear" were the worst for each I think. "Last Juror" read like he hadn't even bothered to outline the book before he wrote it.

VERY funny ... it reads like Hunter S. Thoompson without the drugs.

I'm almost half way through this and I didn't realize it until I was about a quarter of the way through that this is actually a true story! I've actually learned a lot believe it or not. It's a bit tough to get through some of the things, but, interesting how things are unfolding. I'll give my full opinion when I'm finished. Dang holiday plans keep getting in the way!
