at least you reminded me why I usually just lurk!
************ Haha! Hey! Speaking of Pelecanos, it's been a
month of Sundays since I read him. I read Sweet Forever and
another one and liked them both. Pelecanos used to be a
rara-avis member. He turned me on to one of my favorite
serial killer novels.
I was down south on vacation a few weeks back and bought one
of his at a thrift store, something like Down By the River
Where the Dead Men Go. I'm planning on chomping down on it
This evening I bought a book of short stories (I hate short
stories) by Tim O'Brien called The Things They Carried. It's
one of those books that you think about getting for a long
time before the deed gets done. I saw it at the bookstore and
read most of the first story and I was sold on it. Had a
short part about crawling through a tunnel that reminded me
of Michael Connelly. My ex-Marine friend bought the two
latest paperbacks in the W.E.B. Griffith Corp series. We
should both be able to crank through a few pages on the long
haul back to southern Indiana tomorrow.
