Figured I'd kick off the very first Book Thread for the revamped CU...

I'm currently two-thirds of the way through James Rollins' last release, The Judas Strain. Pretty decent read, as usual... His new Sigma Force novel, The Last Oracle, comes out very soon...next week, I think...

I've been re-reading "The Golfer's Mind" by Dr. Bob Rotella. One in a series of his books about the mental game of golf.

I picked up a book at the local library called How Tiger Does It. I haven't dived into that one yet, but it looks good. All about how he gets in "the zone" and such.

Right now, I'm reading Death of a Dream. It's a 48 Hours Mystery book. I love true crime books. Does that make me sick?

I generally avoid Tiger books on general principle. Who wrote it? I haven't been in a bookstore in a while, so I'm not familiar with it.

I'm waiting for that one too, June 24.
I just reread all the Reilly and Rollins books these past few weeks and am ready for a new one.
Been checking the mail each day for the Ed Lee books!

Too bad you didnt get to come over,I rearranged my bookshelves a new way.

Did them by author but kept hardbacks and paperbacks together.
The new John Sanford book, Invisible prey was good as was Baldacci's, The Whole Truth.

Not really, Jen. Now some of the horror novels I read--especially of the Ed Lee ilk--are pretty graphic...but he's just a terrific, no-frills, storyteller...

I just finished Bill Bryson's amusing memoir, "The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid", and now I need to find something a little more serious to get the brain cells working harder again.

I've rereading all of the Pendergast novels by Lincoln and Childs. I'm about halfway through Wheel of Darkness which is the last one.

After that I will crack open Bad Moon Rising by Jonathan Maberry. This guy will easily join the ranks of King and Koontz. :)

Yes, indeed. Shannon read both books in the Pine Deep Trilogy back to back...and she'll be reading the third book probably before I get the chance to.

That's funny! I'm going to finish this latest Odd Thomas book then finish the Maberry series.:)

What was your previous name on CU? I have read one of his books. It was a bit predictable for me but not bad. My husband likes his books.

Yeah. He's not great but not terrible.

Sabaka. I didn't post much.
