Earlier today I finished The Case of the Half-Wakened Wife by Erle Stanley Gardner. If you've ever wondered what makes Perry Mason fans Perry Mason fans, this is one of the ones that explains it.

One of Gardner's best.

I just finished 11/22/63 by Steven King... seriously... read this book! 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I never heard the word "obdurate" before I read this book... but now I am sure I will never forget it!

Will probably read "The Game" next.. an actual paper book that I accidentally ordered instead of the Kindle version and I am too lazy to return.

The Young Wizards series by Diane Duane has 9 books published between 1983 & 2010. You can buy a complete set of the original books, containing both (DRM free) epubs and mobis direct from Diane Duane's website for $39.95. The Millennium Edition so far has the first book, So You Want to be a Wizard and the second book, Deep Wizardry (it has just been released as a Millennium version) in the series and they have been updated to appear as if they take place in the 21st century. I read So You Want to Be a Wizard, New Millennium Edition and was impressed enough to buy my 12 year old Grandson the complete set, for his Fire, for Christmas.

An interesting near to far future SF story, but I wasn't fond of the ending.

then I read: Eastern Standard Tribe by Cory Doctorow: An excellent near-future first person account of technology trends and social trends.

And now a freebie I picked up probably in 2008, Puppeteer by Jaebi.

I finally finished War of Honor, the tenth Honor Harrington novel by David Weber, a couple of nights ago while visiting family. I wasn't all that impressed, and it was way too long, but I'm glad I've got it out of the way.

Since I only had my kobo with me, and a mere hundred or so books to choose from, I haven't committed myself to anything else since, but have just read a couple of stories from the Mammoth Book of Locked-Room Mysteries and Impossible Crimes.

Actually, I'd kind of like to finish off the Foundation trilogy before the year is out. I read the first two earlier in the year. I might start Second Foundation tonight, an actual paper book.

I also finished Bye Bye Balham by comedian Richard Herring a few days ago. It's basically a collection of old blog posts,which I've been dipping into at odd moments all year. I liked it, but I was already a fan.

Oops. I meant Fabelhaven.

Well, I tried. I gave it a hundred pages, but 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was just not what I had expected... I felt like I was reading a 3rd year college English major's homework assignment... a 3rd year college English major who needs 'more of a social life' (to say it politely.)

I did read The Millennium Edition of So You Want to Be a Wizard. The reply of mine you quoted referred to the Diane Duane series, Young Wizards. I've never investigated Fabelhaven.

That is my real deadline.

*Provided the Mayans were wrong of course!
DONE! Yay!

Now for a couple short stories to finish out the year and give myself a clean start for next year. I will start with "Shear Terror" by David Adams and then maybe "Fluke: Langara's Prize" by Cyril Kowaliski.

A good start for an SF police procedural, but trails off toward the end.


Next: Falling onto Mars by Geoffrey A. Landis. A freebie I picked up in 2003!
