    My recent reads have been Mike Lupica's "Blood Feud," the final Robert B Parker character, Sunny Randall, to get given new life by his Estate. Then I read "The Outsider" by Stephen King, which has become one of my favorite King novels. Except now I have to eventually get around to the trilogy that starts with Mr. Mercedes because there is a crossover character who pops up here. Coming up, in my attempt to branch out, a novel I found on sale, Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson (the look inside pulled me right in-- beautiful prose), and finally, Methuselah's Children pops up by Robert Heinlein. Haven't decided yet if this means it will be followed immediately by "Time Enough For Love."

    Late, as usual for me..(reminds self to check the b-day calendar...)
    Finished book mentioned above. "Enjoyed" isn't quite the term I'd use to describe how I felt about it -- lots, Lots, LOTS of graphically described violence, but not really gratuitous. so, if one is "into" a psychologist's experiences with dealing with criminally insane killers (both in an out of confinement), and what they do/have done to others, then 'enjoy' -- currently free on the play store.

    I haven't decided if I'll read any of the follow-up books.

    Hook, I haven't read the Outsider or the Mercedes trilogy yet (although I did read an excerpted short story from Mr. Mercedes in the New Yorker); but one of those streaming channels is serializing the Mr. Mercedes trilogy. I think it might be the DirectTV audition network.

    Finished The Queen of Crows by Myke Cole. I think that's number five for the year already. Now reading Code Girls by Liza Mundy.

    Been reading E.M. Foner's scifi comedies lately, EarthCent Ambassador and A.I. diaries series. Neither is super funny, mostly just lighthearted, easy reading. Perfect for me at the moment.

    I just finished "The Midnight Line: A Jack Reacher Novel" by Lee Child.

    Enjoyed it a lot, but, really, I don't recall any Reacher novels that I didn't enjoy :vbwink:
    If interested, Amazon has a preview link:
