I am now reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. It is a vampire book, but does not seem to be the typical sort of vampire book. I am a 5TH of the way done with the book (700ish pages or so. Not too sure of the length because it is on my Kindle) and so far there have been no traditional vampires and the word vampire has only been used once or twice. This is the first thing I have ever read from this author. I am really enjoying his style. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and a number of different plot lines, but I can tell they are all going to end up coming together in one at some point and I have a feeling he will do it in a clever way. I got this book after hearing a recommendation for it on NPR and I am very happy I did.

In the middle of "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle", the story of a family of four who make it a goal to go a whole year only eating food they raised themselves or bought from local sources. Very interesting!

LOL, guess it's a brief attention span, but I've got 4 books going at the moment.
The battle for Normandy, by Antony Beevor, one of the best books I've read about the D'Day invasion.
Rereading Talking god by Tony Hillerman, one of my favorite authors no longer with us.
The Good, the Bad and the Uncanny, by Simon r. green in the Nightside series
And Blue-eyed Devil, the, what will now be the last in the Virgil Cole western series due to Robert B. Parker's untimely demise.
