I snagged a copy of Professional Cooking by Wayne Glisslen at a thrift store awhile back. I'm on chapter 3.

Well, near the end of last week I finished Huck Finn's tales and really did get into his shenanigans and adventures. It was a fun story and I enjoyed all the characters.

After Huck was put on the shelf, I devoured a book entitled Lone Survivor, which was written by Marcus Luttrell. He was the lone survivor of an operation called Operation Redwing, which ended up being the worst disaster of casualties in our country's SEAL team history.

I was riveted from start to finish and could picture every moment he describes in the book. Just...WOW!

Now, for a total and complete about face, I'm reading Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. I've just scratched the surface and I don't know how many times I've laughed out loud. This is gonna be fun!!!!

I have banned myself from the library until I work my way through my stack of magazines. At least all three of those subscriptions were free.

And off I go to read...

Snoopy looked hang dog because the light was keeping him awake. The sticker on the bottom of the dog house reads "I'm allergic to morning" but, like me, Snoopy will sleep any chance he gets.

I'm pretty sure I am allergic to mornings, too! I'm with Snoopy.

I have gone amazon/kindle shopping for creepy, halloween-ie type reads. Not everyone's cup of tea but it's my October tradition.

1. The Purge of Babylon / Sam Sisavath - Zombie Apocalypse
2. The Colony / F.G. Cottam - Supernatural / Horror
3. The Lazarus Prophecy / F.G. Cottam - Supernatural / Horror / Slasher
4. Ghost Song / Sarah Rayne - Supernatural

We are all the normal people reading these days?

Finished my last Mark Twain book and am now about 3/4 of the way through Don Quixote de la Mancha by Cervantes.

Boy, oh, boy, has good old Don Quixote had some adventures. His sidekick, squire, Sancho Panza is a piece of work, too.

I'm really enjoying it.

I'm reading The Maze Runner, by James Dashner, waiting to pick up the rest of the books. Really enjoying it.
