I'm about 25 pages into Cold Kill by Stephen Leather. Seems like my kind of book so far

Read another 100 pages and it's still keeping me very entertained.

I would read another book by Stephen Leather. It was pretty entertaining.

I just started Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, and I'm liking it a lot. It's about a Confederate soldier's walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge Mountains after being sorely wounded in the fight at Petersburg.

I liked this line:

"Inman saw one man squat to yank the boots off a body lying flat on its back, but as the man lifted a foot and pulled, the dead man sat up and said something in an Irish accent so thick the only understandable word was ****."

Bleach.

My need for Japanese comics is consuming me.

Me too, but I never get the punch line because they talk too fast.

Cold Mountain is a really good book. Not my usual fare, but I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

They can have some weird punchlines too. I read somethings and culturally they don't translate.

I think it's time to learn Japanese.

Just started Warlord by Ted Bell. Quite amusing. I like it.
Sort of like James Bond with a jolt of gritty reality.

Klingsor's Last Summer.

I'm an avid reader/rereader of Hermann Hesse and I'm starting to read a lot to my Daughter.

I think it's one of those gateways to understanding life and living it.

He's also my favorite person of all time and I seek to convey his writing to a coming generation so they don't get lost to time.

I feel he was one of the most under appreciated Authors of his time and I hop history remembers him more than it has.
