The Third Gate by Lincoln Child. Good solo book by half of a great writing team.

Just a half hour ago started Head Hunters by Jo Nesbo. I saw the movie and loved it, then saw the book, written by Nesbo, that I didn't know existed. It's sort of a black comedy.

I've been reading Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity Of The Soul. A metaphsyics book supposedly channeled from Jane Roberts in trance, and written down by her husband, in many sessions over years. Regardless of whether the channeling part is true or not, the content is fascinating. Seth goes about explaining everything that is. I accidentally dropped this book in the Bay, fished it back, and still read it, showing the affinity I have for its contents. It's somewhat smelly now, but is just as interesting and thought provoking as before it got its sea legs. I read small bits at a time, and it's a large book, but I am nearing finising it. I have another Seth book waiting after this one.

I also picked up Cosmos awhile ago, but am having trouble getting into it, so it has been collecting dust in my car for quite awhile now.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

I love Nesbo! Definitely my pick of the Scandinavian writers that I have read so far.

It's wonderful, isn't it?! :w00t:  I love all his books and agree with you that he never disappoints.

I'm working my way through all Annie Proulx's books, I've read four ...... just started 'Accordian Crimes' today. She's most famous for 'The Shipping News' which won an award, and 'Brokeback Mountain' which was made into a film.

Almost finished Cold Mountain (Charles Frazier). It's not something I would normally read but the writing is beautiful. Almost poetic at times.

I used to read constantly when I was little, but I think as the content's gotten more mature I've gotten more casual with it. I just started a book called 'Tapetinvärinen', by Virpi Hämeen-Anttila. It's really recent but very good, I was pretty surprised.

I finished a book days ago, and I can't remember the author's name for the life of me, but the book is called 'An Object of Beauty'. Great book, wonderful perceptions and a very sharp, caustic narration. The ending was very disappointing, sadly, but nonetheless I'd recommrnd it.

American with an accent, Christian with a tat, sociopath with a heart, child with no mother, Lover with no Lover, confidently doubting, amused but not laughing, woman but child, feisty yet caring, sweet when not bitter.
