Just finished Oregon Country by TJ Hanson, a well researched historical fiction about the first immigrants in 1845. I really enjoyed it, it might be because I was born and raised in Oregon and many of the historical people in the book were part of our history classes in grade school and HS.

I also just finished White Seed: The Untold Story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke by Paul Clayton. It too was very good.

I am now reading 'Storm of Steel' by Ernst Junger. Its about WW1 and suppose to be one of the best books on the subject of a front line soldier.

In our two weeks vacation I made it through 3 books!
Tom Winter's "Lost and Found" which was really sweek and brought a few tears to my eyes.
Richard Laymon "The Travelling Vampire Show" was really good. A true pageturner. He built the characters nicely.
Kerry Greenwood "Miss Phryne Fisher investigates" was also really good. Very amusing.

Now I'm a few percent into "Bone River" by Megan Chance and so far it's a good read.

"Only Time Will Tell" by Jeffrey Archer. It's been quite a few years since I have read one of Archer's books. This one is very different from the others I've read.

Just finished Anthony Burgess' "Enderby's Dark Lady". Burgess is very witty, erudite and sarcastic, and at times hilarious. But just a tiresome read. Blah. I was glad to get to the end of a mercifully short book.

We had to read his "A Clockwork Orange" in high school and I was completely stymied. I've never gone back to that well.
