Default What are you reading?

One of my favorite topics(after all, I am a librarian)

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.

I started (and finished) Jar City by Arnaldur Indrišason this past Sunday. If you like crime thrillers, this one is indeed good. It had been quite a long time since I started and finished a book in one day, but I just couldn't put this one down.

I'm trying to finish up a Jack Reacher thriller I started while on vacation and I just got a pile of new books for my birthday. I plan to tackle "The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington" next.

Just finished reading The Bali 9. 9 Aussies caught smuggling heroin out of Bali a few years back, A bunch of idiots if you ask me, as Bali has the death penalty for drugs.
