    I just finished "French Leave," P. G. Wodehouse. I recommend it highly. The way he pulls things together is really dazzling.

    Just finished A Dance with Dragons the fifth book in the Game of Thrones series. The whole series is great. Now I'm on to One Hundred Years of Solitude. A guy at work wants me to read it and let him know what I think.

    100 Years of Solitude. . . sigh, I love the writing style, I hate his books.
    Love in the Time of Cholera was another, both snoozers for me.
    Reading Jim Butcher "The Dresden Files" fun mindless summer reading.

    I want to shout out loud:

    Ross Thomas

    This writer is the most engaging, compelling and just pleasurable author I have come across in years.

    His page turning work is far better than the likes of Grisham, more like Raymond Chandler but more surprising and witty.

    Briarpatch

    A Chinaman's Chance


    Cast a Yellow Shadow


    Twilight at Mac's Place


    Out on the Rim


    The Cold War Swap

    All EXCELLENT!
