    Only a short bit into Endurance, but I'm reminded of Stephen King's shorter books, the ones where he doesn't have 800 pages to gradually let the reader know where he's taking us, particularly with character development. Enjoying it so far :newpalm:

    Dngrsone, Sadly, I do watch too much TV (but not as much as WozofOz here does!) ;)

    Baby steps, my friend. If you read one book, that's one more book than you read before!

    I've finished the book on paper, read Minion, and started one called Violet Grenade but gave up-- it was taking too long to get to any point. I think I will read another Reacher novel before reading The Radium Girls for a book club.

    I just now finished Endurance, and I recommend it highly to fans of horror stories. otoh, if you are at all squeamish about people being injured (both accidentally and intentionally), then skip this one. A small sample in the spoiler…
    On the list of things he didn't want to do, trying to fix his fingers ranked slightly above pouring gasoline on his head and setting his hair on fire.

    I have it I my queue.

    I can't say when I'll actually get to reading it.

    Just started Nyxia. Reminds me a little of Ender's Game.

    Also reading through Lee Goldberg's Monk books. I miss Monk.

    I'm currently reading "Wind in his Heart" by Charles DeLint, his first adult fantasy (as opposed YA, not meaning pornographic) novel in 8 years. DeLint does urban fantasy (People co-existing with gods and spirits in the modern world) and, along with Neil Gaiman, is the best at this sort of thing. Canadian writer and musician who spends half his time in Ottowa and the other half in Arizona. His novels can be read stand alone, but the novels that take place in the fictional city of Newford are best read in order.

    Next on my list is the new Spenser novel, Old Black Magic, mostly because I've read every book in the series and I can't stop. :vbgrin: They're fun popcorn and Ace Atkins does a good job with Robert Parker's characters and the world Parker created around Boston, keeping a lot of Parker, but also making it his own.

    I'm thinking I need to do a scifi binge sometime soon.

    What kind of sci-fi you looking for, Hook?
