Serious or light, nonfiction or fiction. Doesn't matter. Share the wealth.

As for me, I just finished "How Can I Keep from Singing? The Ballad of Pete Seeger," a biography by David Dunaway. Now I'm reading "Woody Guthrie: A Life" by Joe Klein.

I just finished reading "The Choice" by Nicholas Sparks. Next I'm starting "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini who also wrote "The Kite Runner" which I also recently read and LOVED. Also recently read Scott Freeman's bio of Otis Redding called "Otis!" which was really fascinating because I learned a lot about Macon's music scene in the late 50s and into the 60s....pre-ABB.

Just finished Clapton before that Patti Boyd and before that Marianne Faithfull before that The Kite Runner . Picking up The Road today..

Quick comment about Clapton.. thought it was a good a book , I personally found Eric to be a whiner and a sniveler most the time. Life seems to be in the right place for him now.. he is a devoted family man with 1 older daughter and 3 daughters from his new marriage and seems really very happy. Lots of daughters , Eric ..pay back is a bit-- !

On the flip side of that.. reading about Eric losing his son was just heartbreaking.

Some one mentioned "The Celestine Prophesy" what a great book. I read that a few years back.. Loved it !!

Just finished The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfield - great read. Just about to start the Clapton autobiography, and just received Mark Kozelek's book of lyrics.

Heavy Metal Spring 2008 edition.


I knew we were brothers from other mothers (and dads too ). I admit I've fallen off in recent years, but prior to that, I read Heavy Metal more or less religiously since about 1984 or so - the first issue I bought was the one that debuted Ranxerox - I liked the cover.



What am I reading now? . . . Hmmm - just finished James Patterson's Step on a Crack last night, (not a very high point in his career, in fact, other than one memorable character, it was quite bad), and just started Vince Flynn's Separation of Power, also last night. I had read a couple of Flynn's books out of sequence, but now I've started over at the beginning and I'm going to read them straight through in order.

One of these days I'll start a "Mitch Rapp" thread for those interested.

Last week I read "WildFire" by Nelson DeMille. I found it quite boring, which surprised me, because I liked Nightfall quite a bit. The basic story was okay, but I think it could have been done in 1/3 to 1/2 fewer pages. Way too much driving, rental cars, hotels, motels, wisecracks (same old jokes on/about the same old people), and talk of food and constant mention of the antagonist's security personel and equipment. If he had just told the story, it would have been a nice weekend book, and allowed the reader to move on to something else. It seems DeMille was forcing the story to go on longer than necessary.

I just finished, "You Suck" by Christopher Moore. Along with Carl Hiassen, Christopher Moore is one of my favorite guilty pleasure authors. 300 pages or so of laugh out loud fun!

"You Suck", is another tale of hip young vampires and the goth scene in San Francisco. I recommend anything by Christopher Moore and Carl Hiassen.

Silver: My Own Tale As Written by Me with a Goodly Amount of Murder
At the start of Chupack's swashbuckling debut, Long John Silver, yes, that Long John Silver, faces hanging back in England after a life of piracy on the seven seas. But before he swings, the aging, fever-ridden pirate is determined to tell his fabulous story, so settle back, me hearties, it's one hell of a tale. Silver has a dual motive: not only does he wish to torment his captor, who has taken him prisoner aboard his own ship, but he also hopes to secure his release by promising to reveal the whereabouts of his fabled treasure. Some of the old Treasure Island gangóBen Gunn, Pew, Jim Hawkinsóreturn, but this is no retelling of the original. Chupack is particularly good at pirate dialogue (Silver says of the killing of his mate, Smollet: he made an excellent corpse on account that you puddened him to the plansheers, so when the wind blowed aft to lee, he bade a farewell to the world). Murder, a map, ciphers and codes, and even a bit of romance figure in Silver's riveting narrative as well.

I'm about 70 pages into Clapton's book. I saw in another thread someone mention the book "The Road" which caught my interest and it will probably be my next read.
