Thanks Sharon for your feedback. I'll look into her other novels soon. I think she really found a fine mix of SF and historic fiction with her Blackout and All Clear!

Currently I am really enjoying A Cavern of Black Ice by J.V. Jones (fantasy). It was rough going for about the first hundred pages but now I'm totally into it, and I'm pleased it's just the first in a trilogy.

I will read anything by Connie Willis. Her books are always a joy.

Yesterday finished Grizzly by Christine Andreae - a nice mix of Montana scenery, gourmet menus for visiting Japanese businessmen, deceased bears, and a little Blackfoot Indian, too.

Coming up this afternoon is Douglas Adams' The Salmon of Doubt. Well, sure - bears & salmon go together. Maybe not these bears or that salmon, but.....

Just finished "Term Limits" by Vince Flynn. Lots of action in this political thriller that exposes widespread corruption all the way to the top. I give it a 7 of 10. The dialog gets a little slow in a few places.

I'm starting Tom Clancy's "Rainbow Six" today.

I am. But that's my bedtime reading. During the day, I read fun books.

Hahahaha! You are NEVER going to retain any of that physics stuff then. I applaud you for finding a sure fire insomnia cure though. Be careful to let the book fall AWAY from your forehead!
