Re-reading "Skinny Dip" by Carl Hiaasen. Been on a bender of crime/murder books (my usual fare), and thought some humor at bedtime would be a good thing. Love his work!

 

And Soddy, let me know how you like the Scientology book. I heard the author on a radio interview a few weeks ago, and the book sounds fascinating!

Will do. I had earlier finished Inside Scientology

which was a bit dry. I think that book was an extension of a magazine article.

Very good book.

Yes, I was very surprised!  It was so very detailed, and he laid his soul wide open.  Fantastic book.

Currently on book 9 (Ashes of Victory) of the Honor Harrington series by David Weber (yes, again). I recently got a friend at work interested in the series, so I'm reading one book ahead of him to help me remember details to discuss with him.

 

Four more mainline books, six anthologies of short stories based in the Honorverse (by both David and other authors), and six books in two separate spin-off series (one spinoff by Weber, the other co-authored by Weber and Eric Flint) to go before I'm caught up, followed by another several books yet to be written.

Just finished a book called "Scarlet" by Marissa Mayer (sp), which is the second book in her series, The Lunar Chronicles. The first was Cinder, a twist on the Cinderella story, only here Cinder is a cyborg.

 

Liking the series so far, I think it's better than the Hunger Games.

Hawk Channel Chase, by Tom Corcoran.  Tom is a writer and photographer who spent time in Key West in the seventies, hanging out with Tom McGuane, Jim Harrison, and Jimmy Buffett; he cowrote several songs with Buffett, best known of which is probably Fins.  His novels are set in KW and the lower Keys, his protagonist is Alex Rutlidge, a photographer who occasionally takes crime scene photos for the police and sheriff's departments.  Predictably, he gets involved in and helps solve whatever crime happens to occur.  If you've been to the Keys and enjoy crime fiction, I highly recommend you check his books out.

OK, one downfall to the Clockwork Angels skin is that the "a" and "o" look so much alike that I thought the book title above read "The Fart". I should probably go to bed now.
