Suggested Reading

   Gram77  I am considering reading Lights Out by Ted Koppel, but only if the library has it. Not sure I want to spend money but I am curious at to what he has uncovered with how the country stands with protecting our power grids. Any one else taking a look at this?

   Balogreene  You know, he is such a lib. I too would not pay to read it. But, like talking to my sister, it is interesting to hear the other side (altho they are none-too-bright ).

   MeiDei  Just started reading "The Visitant" written by a well respected husband & wife team of archaeologists, who have 50 best selling novels to their credit. The story is about the Anasazi Indians of New Mexico (circa 1100 ) & a modern dig. Every other chapter is about the ancient ones, with the current dig filling in between. A mystery/thriller. Takes place in Chaco Canyon, a place I visited many years ago.

   MeiDei  1/2 way through and really liking this book - ancient Indian customs + development of old & modern day characters make for interesting reading.

   StormCnter  I'm about 1/3 through Doerr's "All the Light We Cannot See" and I'm loving it. Every book I read about war and its effects on normal people trying to live their lives reminds me to thank God for the oceans that have (til now ) protected this country from enemy military invasion and occupation. We have been sheltered from the terribleness of what France endured in WWII, for example.

   StormCnter  I don't know how many visitors to this Wall also read the pieces on the Mother Ship. So, I'll post this for those who didn't see it. Who knew there were two books about a "Girl on a Train"?

   MeiDei  I think we all read the right book : )Thanks for the post - missed it otherwise.
So glad you liked the Doerr book, made a lasting impression on me.

   Balogreene  I'm going to read both. They sound very different.
Monday at 19:24 EST .

   StormCnter  Me, too, Balo. I've got "the other one" on my order list.

   Gram77  3/4 of the way through Grisham's new book Rogue Lawyer. It's quite good but maybe not good enough to scream GET IT.

   StormCnter  Gram, John Grisham has written a couple of books that I consider absolutely terrific. And, most of his books are page-turnable. I have cooled on him since the one he wrote about capital punishment.

   Gram77  Finally, Robert Crais' new book (after a year's postponement ) will be in the stores tomorrow. No explanation for the long delay but I'm can't wait to get it.

   StormCnter  I'm about halfway through Swaim's "The Speechwriter", the slim memoir of Swaim trying to write speeches for Governor Mark Sanford while Sanford is busy hiding his Argentine mistress from his wife, his state and the media. The book is funny and gossipy, but really impresses on me that we sometimes elect morons in this country. It's a miracle we've survived thus far.

   FlatCityGirl  Michael Connelly has a new one out [released yesterday, Nov 3]. The Crossing. I'm well into it already, and it's going to be a barn burner.

   MeiDei  I'm just beyond the middle of Louise Penney's latest "The Nature of the Beast" and already hate for it to end - love 3 Pines community - wish it were real as the Bisto calls to me as do the residents - especially Ruth and her duck Rosa ... and Myrna's bookstore - the bakery too and last but not least retired Chief Inspector Gamache & his lovely wife.

   MeiDei  This one is her darkest novel with twists and turns right to the end .. with a hint of a possible new direction for Gamache.
