I'm continuing my reading of westerns with Gunman's Reckoning by Max Brand. Good ole western yarn. These come in handy when I need to escape.

Just finished Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer, a very interesting and scary history of the Mormon Church.
That was a great book, I highly recommend it. Another good one by Krakauer is Into Thin Air.

Just finishing up a complete re-read of the Bujold Vorkosigan saga. I started this because I realized that I had really lost track of everything that had gone on in the series as I had mostly read it when they originally were released, which goes back a long way. What's interesting is how well the older books have stood the test of time, even the first sort of "non-series" book in the universe, Falling Free. I've really enjoyed this re-read which I should finish up today as I'm about 1/2 way through the last, Cryoburn. I highly recommend the series, which is available now directly on Amazon, or from Baen . Most of the books are available in omnibus editions, which can get a bit confusing. And this is complicated by some rights reversions and the new agreement with Amazon. But you can certainly get the individual books.

I started reading The Game by Monica Hughes. It is a young adult book. I also accidentally ordered it in paper... oh the horror... so I am reading it that way. First time I've read a pbook (at least fiction) in quite a while. The book is not too long and I have 5 days off in a row... so I should finish it in that time.

Everything by Krakauer is good. I also recommend Into The Wild by him.

I completed my read of A Deeper Sleep by Dana Stabenow! It was, as is usual for her books, a very enjoyable read, a visit with old friends. Now for one of the books that was not on my TBR (or on my Amazon wish list) till I got it for Christmas from my youngest son, Matt. It looks to be an interesting read. We'll see soon anyway. It's called Night Watch, first in a trilogy by Sergei Lukyanenko.

If God Doesn't Show by R. Thomas Riley-

''SHADOW CREATURES ARE ATTACKING

Thaddeus Archer is an ex-police officer whose missing daughter holds the key to the mysterious force that threatens to lay waste to what’s left of our world. It’s a race against time for the broken and desperate Archer who must trust the only man who understands what’s happening, Gibson Blount, an agent of a secret government agency that doesn’t officially exist.

AN ISLAND HAS RISEN OUT OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN

As their world spirals into chaos both men must overcome their differences and personal demons in a world besieged by the re-animated dead, natural disasters, and elder god set on destruction.

CTHULHU IS ABOUT TO WAKE''

I enjoyed that, more in the first half than the second, but not enough to read a sequel.

An enjoyable fast-paced thriller. Action packed from start to finish!

I haven't yet decided what to read next. It's either The Hobbit or The Name of the Wind.
