I'm reading a book by a new author, it's called Necro-Anda, it's a suspense book, about this fellow who has been made a guinea pig by his scientist friend, with a drug that the scientist calls Necro-Anda. It is a mind control drug, and the bad guy uses his friend to kill his wife, rob banks and such.


pretty good so far, I'm about half way through.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

This is an amazing book. It's kind of a light read, and, as odd as it sounds it has given me a strange new fondness for our greatest president. The pictures are supposed to be creepy, but they made me laugh instead of sending chills up my spine. Like much of this book, actually.

It's... every civil war novel ever meets Buffy the vampire Slayer. And it works. Really freakin' well.

I just finished reading Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson. I loved this book! Parts of it are hysterical and other parts poignant - a great read. I highly recommend it.

The library called and said my name had come up for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, so I put down Coyote Blue and started TGWTDT. I understand why people like it so much--it's certainly a page-turner. Sometimes the dialogue is clunky, but I think that might be the translation.

I read about 3/4 of that. It was good with lots of detail about the Roma people. I just stopped reading it because I got distracted by something else.
