Didn't know that was out. Gonna have to jump on that one. We read all the "Prey" books (and Virgil Flowers too) and Linnea's BD is coming up in June.

I'm about half way through Tom Clavin's Dodge City. Reminds me of Empire of the Summer Moon in that although it is history it reads like a novel. Lots of history and stuff I never knew about the backgrounds of the characters involved and their relationships (for example Bat Masterson and Doc Holliday weren't too fond of each other).

Just finished Six Years a Texas Ranger by James B. Gillette. Great book by a frontier era Ranger. Great insights and good stories. Quick read but very entertaining and very informative. Well worth the time to read.

Reading Emma, by Jane Austin. Difficult at times with that mid 19th century English sentence structure.

Just about finished with W.E.B. Griffin's "The Last Heroes", volume one of his Men At War series. Waiting on my table is David Baldacci's "The Whole Truth", the first in his Shaw series. After that is Ted Bell's "Pirate".

Box is my favorite author. I've read all of his Joe Picket series. My wife is a big fan also. I just picked up the new release Vicious Circle but when I brought it home she grabbed it so I'm waiting my turn. ::dang::

I'm not a very fast reader, and my usual MO is to read one or two back to back, go 6-7-8 months of reading nothing, then read another book or two.
As a result, I have a few Box novels on the shelf still waiting.

My Bible is the only Book I read on a daily basis. Since I am not what you would call an avid reader, I discipline myself with a read through the Bible in a year program. Bite size chunks I can handle every day.
Take care and God bless,

This book looked very interesting to me. I also read Empire of the Summer Moon.
It just came in today.
Thanks for the heads up, Ken.
