I'm sad to read that you didn't enjoy Englander's book. I was riveted by it! It put me on a path toward reading more about Latin America. I read Englander's book as I read Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. They were a nice pairing.

"Patient Zero" by Jonathan Maberry

I'll just start tonight but it says something about an officer from an anti terrorist squad who had to kill a "bad guy"... twice. And their group trying some kind of virus transforming people into zombies...

Just finished No Time to Wave Goodbye - Jacqueline Mitchard, a sequel to the Deep End of the Ocean. I think the author lost money in the whole investment debacle, and this feels like a way to make some cash. It's good, the last chapter should have been its own book.

I am reading Air Apparent by Mark Monmonier. It is subtitled "How meterologists learned to map. predict, and dramatize weather". IF you are interested in the subject as I am, it's fascinating.

Default Just a few...

I am reading "The Bourne Identity" for fun.

And, then I am also reading...

-How to start a home based mail order business-

-Neuro-Linguistic programing for dummies-

-The American Holistic Medical Association, Guide to Holistic Health-

-Krav-Maga: The original Israeli System of Self-Defense and Practical fighting skills-

-Surveillance Countermeasures: A Guide to Detecting, Evading, and Eluding Threats to Personal Privacy-


And, I just finished....

-The Runners Rule Book- A fun book for anyone who runs or is thinking about running.

-Confessions of a Dangerous Mind- A good book for anyone who remembers Chuck Barris. "The Gong Show" and "The dating Game" are just a few to stimulate memory.
