I love Ambrose- such a shame he passed right after the bad taste from the hanky panky with his last book.

Right now I am reading Exit Music, by Ian Rankin. The last John Rebus novel.

I am listening to A Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helpren.

Cigargal, is that the newest Rebus novel? I think I've read all the rest of them so far :tu

My Systems Librarian recommended the series to me when I started workig at our Cooperative. She enjoyed them so much that she talked her husband into a 2 week vacation in Scotland so she could visit all the places and haunts of John Rebus. :D Her husband wasn't even aware of her ulterior motives until she mentioned "this is the place where John Rebus met so and so in one of his stories".

I've enjoyed all of the Rebus books so far, including the short story collections.

Right now I'm re-readind "Red Storm Rising" by Tom Clancy.

BTW, what ILS system do you use at your library?

Mr. 00p,
Exit Music is the last John Rebus book. It came out last summer and covers the last week of his life as an Inspector before retirement.

Our library is 15'X20' and I am not sure it has(or needs) an ILS. We have an ILL system linked with other libraries in the state...I HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION.

John Rebus rocks!

Not to thread jack but do any of you avid readers use the Amazon Kindle ?

To keep on topic I'm currently reading Bitter Harvest by Ann Rule. I'm not much of a reader and I'm trying to do more of it. Right now I find myself leaning towards the True Crime books.

No kindle-too expensive for me. I listen to a lot of audio books, but I love the feel of a book in my hands.

True crime book-Devil in The White City. Great story of building the Chicago World's Fair and a serial killer.

Cigars, Whiskey, and Winning.

Leadership Lessons from Ulysses S. Grant.

He was more than a drunkard!!!

My wife got it for me for Christmas. She knows I like cigars and single malts so she got it thinking it was about that stuff. She should have read full title:r:

But it is actually a great read. It is like "The Daily Bread" for leadership.
Good fro the civilian manager and the Military professional alike.

It was thought it was a very good read if you could accept the concept. I went on read Neverwhere and Anansi Boys by Neil and enjoyed both of them.

Just finished Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. The book really grabbed me, but the ending was a little too perfect.
