Figured I'd start a new one for this year. Just finished The Midnite Line by Lee Child. I've enjoyed majority of his books and this was no exception. Better than the last couple of books.

I'm actually reading "Die Trying" by Lee Child ... I'm a little late to the series but I really enjoyed "Killing Floor".

Just finished "Silence Fallen" by Patricia Briggs. Definitely one of my favorites in that series.

Love Patricia Briggs. I can't wait for a new one in the Alpha and Omega series.

Just finished the new Christine Feehan- Judgement Road. It was great.

Screenplay for "Wind River." The movie was dark and somewhat disturbing; it left me a bit obsessed with some of the context and story line. As is often the case, the screenplay provides insight and alternative scenes. "Finding Private Ryan" was a great example.

Mr. Darley's Arabian (about the thoroughbred brought to Europe that pretty much 95% of all modern-day thoroughbreds directly trace their lineage back to). A gift from my son for Christmas.

Finish by Jon Acuff. I struggle with starting things and not finishing them, so this is a very much needed book for me.

What do you think of Finish? I've thought about reading that one myself. I read Quitter a few years back, Acuff is a good (not to mention funny) writer.

I'm enjoying it so far. I also bought copies for my direct reports.

Still wading through American Gods for book club. Also reading The Five People You Meet in Heaven. And yes, I recognize the juxtaposition between the two.

Is it safe to assume that the fact you actually finished the book Finish is an endorsement of its effectiveness? wink smirk

OK, just curious if anyone else has read American Gods? I finished it and I am here to say I did not get it. Like, at all, even after I read some of the author's commentary. And the version I read was "author's preferred text," which is to say it was even longer.

I started it awhile ago and haven't gotten very far - it so far feels like a chore to read - it somehow makes me uncomfortable. I've heard it gets better so probably will pick it up again some time in the future......

I read it, thought it was terrible. Didn't care for the author's writing style either.

I enjoyed American Gods, but I'd read Good Omens before it and knew I liked Neil Gaiman. I also read the sequel to American Gods, Anansi Boys, and enjoyed it even more.

I bought a copy of Anansi Boys for my son, but he never read it. I have to miss the book club discussion this month, and I would be interested to hear what others thought of it. I am going to try to watch the TV series with my husband and perhaps that will help me understand more.

Transfer of Power by Vince Flynn. Only a 1/5 of the way through but it is really good so far.

all the vince Flynn novels are great, you should read them in order. Since he passed away, Kyle Mills now writes under his name, those are very good as well

I just read finished reading for the first time 1984 by George Orwell. It did not end at all how I expected it to. Now that I finished that classic story, I am reading a modern book called Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. This books is FULL of '80s pop culture references, and I am enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. This books is a good read for any nerd.
Also, they are making a movie of this book directed by Steven Spielberg. I seriously doubt the movie will be anywhere near as good as the book.

You should listen to the audio narration of Ready Player One - Wil Wheaton is the narrator. smile The only person I can think of that would have been better is *maybe* Matthew Broderick.

Yeah, I think the movie is not going to be NEARLY as good as the book.

1984 was one of the first books I read because I wanted to and not because it was a requirement, I read it back when it was still fiction.

I'm re-reading It. Read it in middle school and that's most likely where my fear of clowns stems from. We were talking about how the first time I read it, I was the same age as the kids in the book. Now I'm a bit older than the adults. And it's wicked crazy how much of the book I forgot about and is all coming back to me now. eek
