    Finishing up a chick mystery which will be quickly forgotten. Next book though is The Book Collectors, hope it holds my interest. I seem to have hit a lull.

    Have you read any Richard Paul Evans books? I enjoyed The Walk series very much.

    Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye: The Barbara Payton Story by John O’Dowd, the true story of the most epic Hollywood crash and burn you’ve never heard of.

    The nutshell version:
    In 1950 Barbara Payton was a rising starlet making $10,000 a week and costarring with the likes of James Cagney, Gregory Peck, and Gary Cooper.
    In 1967 Barbara Payton died at the age of 39 as a bloated, battered, alcoholic $5.00 prostitute who was missing several front teeth.

    I have but it's been awhile so can't remember if I've read the whole Walk series or not. I do remember enjoying them though. )

    What a burning hell this was & it really wasn't all that long ago.
    We have it so easy now. Just 100 years ago, the world was being torn apart and these people endured.
    We now get our collective panties in a twist for the most mundane of issues.

    I'm on book 10 of the Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva. His writing style and story lines are similar to what you'd find by Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, Mark Greaney, etc. I've already read nearly everything by the fore mentioned authors. After I finish this series I have some nonfiction waiting to be read....."Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari and "The Origin of Species" by Darwin. I like to take a break from the action thrillers every now and then and read about natural history.

    Loved Redshirts! And Fuzzy Nation (which I keep calling Furry Nation, which would be a much different book!).

    Next book up for me is Anxious People by Fredrik Backman. Has anyone read that book and what'd you think of it?

    "The Joke" - Milan Kundera. I think it's the last one of his I need to read.
