Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King

Since I consider King to be my favorite author I decided that I should probably read more of his books lol.

Don't wait for a chapter break to put the book down, take a leak, do your taxes, etc....

I'm on book 7 of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. I took a break to re-read 1984 because they are pretty repetitive. However, they are quick fun reads and I feel like I need to know how they all end since I've read 6 of them lol

Finished Wind Through the Keyhole last week,  and decided to re-read Child's The Enemy.  I'm open to suggestions for my next read if anyone has a favorite?  I'll read just about any genre.

Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon. While it's longer, so far feels much more comprehensible

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson.

Wow. I read this before, but it was a while ago and I was pretty young, and I think I didn't really get it at all. It's fairly tough to get into, for me at least, but damn, the thing is massive. Kind of like A Song of Fire and Ice, except I don't hate all the characters.
if the flow checks out and your rhymes are dope enough then the police start unholstering their guns

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Just finished Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. Really good sci-fit thriller. I really enoyed it.

Loved the first part of the Sinatra bio, can't wait to read the second part, which I'm sure I'm going to love even more. First, taking a bit of a fiction break with His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet

Decided to give David Baldacci's Zero Day a try. Since i like the Jack Reacher novels,  i figured this would be a safe bet.
