  1. Memory Man by David Baldacci. Great book, love this guy’s writing.
    The Stranger by Harlan Coben. My all time favourite author. Five stars for it also.

  2. I’m reading The Diary of Virginia Woolf. It’s an oddly disturbing experience to read the inner thoughts of this talented, depressed, and deeply insecure artist.

  3. David and Goliath – Malcolm Glad we’ll
    and
    The Dark Teatime of the Soul – Douglas Adams

    A few of those listed above are on my list…

  4. I just finished “The Shining Girls” by Lauren Beukes this morning and I’m still riding that high. A smart crime thriller about a time traveling serial killer and the girl that got away from him.

  5. every might this week I’ve been reading my wife a couple of chapters of “The Sound and the Furry,” one of the Chet and Bernie mysteries. Love that dog! And I’ve been working my way through “Robinson Crusoe.”

  6. Mired on page 43 of “Wolf Hall.”

    So I turned to Tom Bouman’s “Dry Bones in the Valley.” Picked up a giveaway copy at the Edgars (Tom won for best first). But it’s good enough that I’d have paid for it. Really confident voice for a first-timer.

  7. ISTANBUL, by Orhan Pamuk, chosen to whet (not wet) my appetite for my trip to Turkey next week. It’s well written, but nobody has been murdered and nothing has been blown up. I will not be able to finish it as I must move on to something to satisfy my literary bloodlust.

  8. I’m reading Echo in the Bone, Book #7 in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, which I love, but due to having to also read for my review blog, I am also reading, The Troubleshooter (New Haven Blues) by Bard Constantine. I am still wavering on this one. I’m not sure what to think yet, but I am going to give it a fair shot. On the learning side of things, I am reading Story Trumps Structure, by Steven James. He makes a lot of good points. Have a great weekend, TKZers! 🙂

  9. Currently on page 250 of Kristen Lamb’s “Rise of the Machines: Human Authors in a Digital World”…wow, wow, wow! I have marked up so many pages, I had to go back through and add colored Post-It flags to differentiate between immediate action items, items to research, great quotes, etc…good stuff! A fabulous weekend, everyone!

  10. I’m reading “Disclaimer,” on the recommendation of the NYT. Like a number of British mysteries I’ve read recently, the characters are very ordinary, a little dour. But the writer knows what she’s doing – she raises question I want the answers to.

    Oh, and I’m reading “Swann’s Way,” my third attempt. All I can manage is 5-10 pages a night. But I did make it to the famous Madeleine scene, which is a kick. But then back to deciphering the longest sentences since Henry James.

  11. My Writer’s Digest and National Geographic magazines came today. I just finished “The Tusk That Did The Damage” by Tania James and began reading “Below” by Ryan Lockwood.

  12. 52 Pick Up by the late, great Elmore Leonard. Good movie starring Roy Schieder and maybe Ann Margaret. Elmore’s works stands the test of time

  13. I’m reading “Midnight Sun” by Charlotte Raine, “Branches of Time” by Luca Rossi and “Early Bird Cafe” by Carrie Aulenbacher.
