I’ve read enough action hero/CIA/anti-terrorism novels now to fill a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf and frankly, it’s getting hard for me to work up much enthusiasm for them anymore. After all how many times can one person consistently be the guy or gal ...more
The Empty Throne by Bernard Cornwell
" Oh I hadn't realized it was a non-fiction account. I had assumed it was similar to his Agincourt novel (which is as fine an account of that battle I h ...more "

The 15th novel in the “Alphabet” series featuring Kinsey Millhone is once again, a classic Sue Grafton mystery novel. I’m reading these books in order and it is fun to watch the character of Kinsey Millhone progress through her adventures and especia ...more
The Magic of Recluce by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
"Mixed feelings about this one. I enjoyed the worldbuilding and the story, but there were definitely some annoying aspects of the book that kept my rating at three stars. I generally am not a fan of first-person narration, unless it's done really w..." Read more of this review »
The Shopkeeper by James D. Best
"Steve Dancy is not your usual good guy cowboy outfoxing and outgunning bad guys while getting the girl in the end. He is instead, a 30 year old ex shopkeeper from New York City looking to explore the west, still a dangerous place in 1879. Everythi..." Read more of this review »

Ernest Cline
“You’re evil, you know that?” I said.
She grinned and shook her head. “Chaotic Neutral, sugar.”
Ernest Cline, Ready Player One

Neil Gaiman
“I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Patrick Rothfuss
“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Louis L'Amour
“The way I see it, every time a man gets up in the morning he starts his life over. Sure, the bills are there to pay, and the job is there to do, but you don't have to stay in a pattern. You can always start over, saddle a fresh horse and take another trail.”
Louis L'Amour, The Proving Trail

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
