Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

re-reading this in Ebook form as I've owned a tablet for almost six months and haven't really done anything with it.

I must say holding a book and holding an tablet is night and day! In 35 days I read THE DAWN PATROL, A GENTLEMAN'S HOUR and MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA all on paperback but its been almost a week and I've had little interest in finishing this book and have been tempted to buy the paperback LOL!

I do however need to stick with it as carrying around 5 to 10 paperback books with me isn't really an option as I travel a lot plus I fancy owning the Hardcovers and then rather than buy the softcover I am now leaning towards this way of reading books.

That being said, COMIC BOOKS look fantastic on the tablet!



I have to be really careful about Comics on the Nook Plus (9 inch HD screen) that is one fast way to go broke. (I did pick up the entire Flashpoint crossover with all the related mini-series a week or so ago as DC was selling the E-book versions for 99 cents an issue.) They look awesome on the Nook.

"THE EYE OF GOD" by James Rollins. His Sigma Force novels are wonderful !

Not long ago, I read the first Sigma Force Book Sandstorm, I have books 2-4 waiting on my Nook to be read. Enjoyed the heck out of the first one.

Just finished the above, now reading the Novella below. Had to take a break from "Urban fantasy", so what better antidote than space fantasy/space opera?

Recently finished reading Doris Kearns Goodwin's "Team of Rivals" (upon a small portion of which the film LINCOLN was based). Incredibly well-written, insightful, absolutely could NOT put it down! A man of Lincoln's qualities we are unlikely ever to see again, and Goodwin's writing is sublime.

Currently I am reading James Lee Burke's most recent entry of his Dave Robicheaux series, entitled "Light of the World." Good suspense thriller (as are all of the Robicheaux books) but a little dark, even more so than most of his. Next on my list is the new Daniel Silva book, "The English Girl" and then probably the first volume of Rick Atkinson's World War II series The Liberation Trilogy, entitled "An Army at Dawn - The War in North Africa, 1942-1943." I like to mix in a non-fiction book from time to time, but mainly read crime/suspense novels and historical fiction.

The book contains all of his Western short stories. It does not include the western novels like Valdez is Coming, Hombre, etc.

Great first novel. If P.V. Brett can keep it up, this will become a classic.

And while I'm not a Leonard fan, its time to break out a few mysteries.

Jim Swain is always a good read although this book is much darker than his norm.

Brandon Sanderson is fast becoming a favorite author of mine. (And no I have not and will not read the Wheel of Time.)

After rereading The Hobbit I'm now reading The Lord of the Rings, currently near the end of The Two Towers, by J. R. R. Tolkien, of course; I'm alternating this with a Harlan Ellison anthology.

I love Bryson's writing. Witty and at times laugh-out-loud funny, plus you get to learn stuff you never knew. This makes a nice change of pace after all the fiction I've been reading.

John Steinbeck's 'The Grapes of Wrath' is arguably my all time favorite book. However, for sheer enjoyment at turning each page, I'd have to go with 'BOY'S LIFE', by Robert McCammon. I read it once many years ago, and am now re-reading it once again. It's fairly massive and I'm midway through it's 608 pages. The writer works magic here and he effortlessly will transport you to being a 10 year old boy in 1964 and all the wonders of being a boy can offer. Absolutely a Summer read!

I am so far behind on this thread. Good thing I have my Nook handy and can refresh my memory since my last posting.

I'll start with the short stories/novellas no cover shots of these as some of them are pretty generic:
A Gnomish Invention by James Bailey
A Gnomish Solution by James Bailey
The Evil that Befell Sampson by Pip Ballentine
The Black Fortress by Jim Melvin
The Torg's First Death by Jim Melvin
A Taste for Poison by V Moody
The Blood Royale by V Moody
Magician Number One by V Moody
Winter Wonderland by Jeffrey Poole
The Disneyland Debacle by Jeffrey Poole
Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson (A Reckoner's Story) Set shortly after the events in the novel Steelheart
Winner Lose All by Timothy Zahn (Featuring Lando Calrissian)

Novels to follow as I get a chance

I just ordered a copy of Daniel Mark Epstein's biography of Nat King Cole. Headed to Cape Cod next week and it will be a great beach book.
