    Just finished the His Dark Materials trilogy, just in time for the movie, apparently. Now I'm reading ChiWalking and a Borderlands horror anthology, as well as my old back issues of the Rivendell Reader. Ironically enough, I should be studying for finals instead.

    Finished listening to Blood of Victory and am listening to Dark Voyage by Alan Furst.

    Finished reading two more Lawrence Block books this week, Mathew Scudder novels, Time to Murder and Create and A Dance at the Slaughterhouse. And will probably finish this weekend A Walk Among the Tombstones, also by Lawrence Block.

    Upstairs bathroom: Tom Clancy: Net Force
    Downstairs bathroom: Stephen King : Dark Tower : Waste lands
    3rd bathroom : Mountain Bike! - a humorous hand drawn / written technique manual.
    Help-to-sleep : Zinns MTB manual.
    Whenever: Any above as well as: Mitigating Circumstances, Incredible Universe (superstring theory), CCNA recertification (need to put more hours in this one).

    I also like to take my library of cookbooks, pick recipes i want to make, write out a shopping list on a post-it note and stick it to that page of the book. Then when I feel like cooking anything, i go to one of the books and grab the shopping list and go get the items that i need and get cookin.

    I have a bunch of guitar tab books if playing out of those counts as reading.

    Oh and i like to print and read parts of my huge library of ebooks ranging from cooking to horror to sci fi to self help to Army Ranger hand-to-hand combat to dog training etc....

    I have had Tom Clancy's Executive Orders (Hardcover) since it came out and cant seem to ever finish it, then I have to go back and re-read parts to get back into it.

    It's raining this weekend though. I think I will give it another read.

    Of all the Matthew Scudder books by LB I got the most from When the Sacred Ginmill Closes. I guess that one was the first in the series. I think Out On the Cutting Edge is the one that scared the crap out of me. Block is very readable and entertaining, I got into his stuff by reading the Bernie Rhodenbarr series (The Burglar Who ___ ___ ___); very lightweight but a fun diversion.

    I'll be starting Small Town next.

    I also very much enjoyed the Sacred Ginmill book. But I like 'em all . And thankfully Lawrence Block is a prolific, as well as talented writer.

    I recently finished reading A Ticket To The Boneyard, In The Midst Of Death, and Long Line of Dead Men, by Lawrence Block.

    Also recently finished listening to Up in Honey's Room by Elmore Leonard; Foreign Correspondent by Alan Furst; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and Call for the Dead by John Le Carré; and for a non-fiction change of pace Dark Genius of Wall Street: The Misunderstood Life of Jay Gould, King of the Robber Barons by Edward Renehan.
    Currently reading Even the Wicked by Lawrence Block and am listening to Transgressions a collection of 10 crime novellas, edited by Ed McBain. Note: it includes a Keller, the Hit Man short story by Lawrence Block.

    For your info, a list of the Matthew Scudder series in order:

    1 THE SINS OF THE FATHERS. First in the series.
    2 TIME TO MURDER AND CREATE. The second book, although it was actually published after In the Midst of Death
    3 IN THE MIDST OF DEATH.
    4 A STAB IN THE DARK.
    5 EIGHT MILLION WAYS TO DIE.
    6 WHEN THE SACRED GINMILL CLOSES.
    7 OUT ON THE CUTTING EDGE.
    8 A TICKET TO THE BONEYARD.
    9 A DANCE AT THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE.
    10 A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES.
    11 THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD.
    12 A LONG LINE OF DEAD MEN.
    13 EVEN THE WICKED.
    14 EVERYBODY DIES.
    15 HOPE TO DIE.
    16 ALL THE FLOWERS ARE DYING.

    I'm reading Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. It's a book about an old preacher in a small town in Illinois, in ill health, writing a letter to his six-year-old son about his life and life in general. It's a beautiful book.

    I love me some L. Block, his books are very entertaining, and they were a good introduction to so many of the other fun to read "Pulp Fiction" novels. Ed McBain, ect.ect.

    Finished listening to Transgressions a collection of 10 crime novellas, edited by Ed McBain as well the Burglar Who Thought He Was Bogart by Lawrence Bock, and am currently listening to Burglars Can't Be Choosers, also by LB. Still reading Even the Wicked by Lawrence Block but plan to finish it early this week because the library just came through for me and purchased and loaned me the three Elmore Leonard non western books I hadn't already read or listened to. I've got three weeks to read Cat Chasers, 52 Pickup and Unknown Man No. 89 before I have to return them. Means less time for BF BSing - a good thing.
