Finished up "Thrawn", which was fantastic and have started on "Ring" which was the basis for Ringu/The Ring horror films.

Transcendence. It's about transcendental meditation which I thought was BS but there's a lot of science here that makes things interesting. One thing for sure - TONS of celebrities are into this and attribute this to helping them which is interesting and makes me wary at the same time.

Oops, I missed the evil autocorrect on my post above--the author of Beartown is Fredrick Backman, not Blackman. Read it, it's deservedly on the bestseller list.

Recently finished Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. After the Black Sails finale I thought I should reread it considering the last time I read it was grade school.

Working on The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and have The Great Bridge by David McCullough on deck.

The Track of Sand, Andrea Camilleri. (Andrea is a man's name in Italian, btw). Inspector Montalbano series is set in a small town in Sicily, there are about a dozen of these. Montalbano is a sharp dresser and a lover of fine foods, who has to deal with Italian bureaucracy and culture to solve his cases. There are smugglers, mafia, swindlers, and a recurring cast of quirky supporting characters including his girlfriend who lives hours away in another city and who he is always arguing with over the phone due to misunderstandings. These are very witty and amusing books and great fun.

Song of the Lion, Anne Hillerman. Continuing the series begun by her father Tony about Navajo police on the reservation. Insight into the Navajo Way is always a big part of the story.

I'm glad you like it! To be honest, I only picked it up on the recommendation of some friends who - like me - are not-so-patiently waiting for GRRM to get off his rear and finish The Winds of Winter. It didn't take long to draw me in and I finished it plus the two sequels quite quickly. Abercrombie does "gray" characters extremely well.

Preacher animated graphic novel. Finished Vol 1 and now onto 2. Basically these are just the comic books collected into a graphic novel with 12 comics per book.

I'm a comic geek as well although been out of them for many years and while away, they went up to $3.99 a book!
