    Really enjoyed this book and it had some nice scary parts. The ending wasn't as good as I hoped but all in all a good book. I just downloaded 20th Century Ghosts and am really anxious to read this collection of short stories. But I also got 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Anyone have any thoughts on that book?

    Joe Hill has some nice shades...really learned from his pop. That being said, I don't think he has hit his stride...yet. And when he does, it will be magnificent. Reading 11/22/63 right now...AND LOVING IT. Vintage King, just beautiful to behold. I may stop reading when he stops writing.

    Just got a kindle so Im reading through some of the freebies and an impulse buy.

    Two Recent....

    Pete Townshend-Who I am: a Memoir. Very introspective with a warts and all look at his life. He manages to also be very self effacing and critical about himself and his troubled upbringing. A very good read and by no means a puff piece or ego massage.

    Dostoevski- The Idiot. Only half way through but interesting. At one time I made it my lifes goal to read all of the classics. I bailed on the idea after Jane Austin and Proust.

    Will peruse this thread at a later date and read some of the suggestions.

    Just finished Mark Owen's book, No Easy Day. GREAT read on the Bin Laden raid.



    Thanks to Motolare's suggestion, I just started the Ketty Jay trilogy:

    Which Kindle did you get? I am thinking of getting the Paperwhite so I can stop hijacking my kid's Fire.

    Bought this one on the iPad right after it came out - looking forward to the read.

    I am reading the latest James Bond right now - very interesting.

    A story of between the wars European history, Hollywood, avant-garde music and weaponry, along with how the collaboration of a famous actress and a composer resulted in the U.S. Patent which ended up covering the spread-spectrum standard used in cellphone technology and encrypted communications.

    Vigorously researched (albeit not to the level of his major 4 work series on the nuclear era, one of which won a Pulitzer), Richard Rhodes (fast becoming my favorite author) managaes to weave these disparate themes into a coherent whole and provides glimpses into the many personalities involved.

    Finished 11/22/63 a few months back. Loved the ending, which is rare on a King book. I think it was one of his best efforts in a very, very long time.

    Been meaning to read it for a good 10 years but whenever I've been in a sci fi mood with nothing to read at hand someone had already borrowed it from the local library. So I finally bought the damned thing and I'm starting right now.
