    Just finished Scott's Last Expedition, Scott's diaries kept on the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition. It's a very affecting at the end as you imagine the utterly appalling condition they must have been in.

    On a positive note it's also an incredible story of endurance and leadership. Well worth a read.

    Over vacation I finished Matthew Berry's new book Fantasy Life. Easy read and hilarious at points, especially if you're a Fantasy nut you'll relate.

    The other book was one that was sitting on the shelf in our cabin that someone had left. I was bored, it won a bunch of praise and awards, I figured what the hell. It was The Art of Fielding. Hard to describe this novel ... part baseball, part coming of age ... I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Definitely not in the genres I usually read, but I burned through it pretty quick.

    OK, now I'm getting to really like my Kindle. This time of year I sit outside around 6:30-7:00 in the evening, take a smoke and read for an hour or so. At first I wasn't to sure I'd like it but now I've reached a comfort zone it's really nice to use.

    Last read was "Night Fall" by Nelson DeMille, a pretty good Summer read, didn't like the ending, too contrived. I really like his "Plum Island". Night Fall is about TWA 800 and I passed through the search zone shortly after it blew up. We saw a seat cushion floating and to this day I think about the poor soul that occupied it.

    in a fit of nostalgia I borrowed Don Quixote for my nook. I sort of look forward to some deck reading with a cigar and some whiskey.

    The Count of Monte Cristo is my all time favorite book. I've named my dogs over the years Jacopo, Luigi Vampa and Edmond Dantes after the characters in it.
    I'm also a big W.E.B. Griffin fan

    A friend sent me an article about a boating accident that took place in 1951, the sinking of the fishing boat Pelican. I boated the waters of NJ and NY for years so this incident peaked my curiosity and led me to: "Dark Noon" by Tom Clavin. This book had me sweating, what a story about a real tragedy. I experienced a bad day off Montauk, NY and this brought back vivid memories.

    Recently read With the Lightnings by David Drake and am now reading the sequel, Lt. Leary, Commanding. Pretty good military SF.

    On to Green Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson. Similar to Red Mars in that I had a hard time getting into it, but after fifty pages or so, it's off to the races...

    Just read Darwin's Child by David E. Carter. I don't generally like fiction, but finished this in one sitting. Starting volume two (of 3) in the Complete Calvin and Hobbes boxed set. I'd been wanting this for years. Got it in hardcover cheap from an Amazon vendor.
    Gurkha is the main reason I have trust issues.

    That's awesome! I have 7 or 8 of the paperback collections from the 90s. Fantastic stuff
