I finally retrieved my Nook from d-i-l and began reading The Passage, part one of a trilogy by Justin Cronin, a Rice University professor. Post-apocalyptic, vampiry virus scenario, 800+ pages and it's awesome. The writing is actually good, as opposed to just serviceable, and I look forward to the second installment.
For Christmas I also received the ESV Study Bible, for which I asked and have begun as well. I decided it's time to reenter some serious reading.
Point being, there's a strange duo.
Plus, the Vince Flynn series and Preston/Child's Two Graves (part of the Pendergast series which I'll have to wrest from Mr. Froth if he doesn't read faster), plus an old Rosamunde Pilcher from our United Way bookmobile extravaganza-50 cents!
I could just as soon become a hermit and read myself into oblivion.
