Read from January 16 to 22, 2012

12/10/11 - My across-the-street neighbor frequently vacations at Nantucket Island. I borrowed this book from him after he told me that the movie THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, was based on this book. I thought the movie was pretty funny and am looking forward to reading the book.
1/22/12 - I've just finished THE OFF-ISLANDERS. It was an OK read, somewhat funny, in a slap-stick sort of way. I wouldn't give it a very high recommendation.
