Am enjoying The Tender Bar by JR Moehringer. It is his memoir.
The author, who now lives in my old hometown, Denver, CO, grew up in the town where I was born, Manhasset, NY.
The town's best bar was where he celebrated triumphs, worked through problems, and observed tragedies.

Well, I finished "Cell" (King) last week, and was overall fairly pleased... not so crazy about the ending, but it did keep my interest from the first page - so that's saying something! I just started a new mystery novel, called "Murder on Nob Hill" by Shirley Tallman, and so far it's pretty good. It's about a young female lawyer in 1880 in San Francisco, who takes on a client who's wealthy husband was murdered. So far it's a lot of "women can't be lawyers!" and that sort of thing, but I think it's about to get more interesting. I'll let you all know how I like it!

It's any older book now, but I just finished House of Sand and Fog. I want to rent the movie. I love Ben Kingsley.

I just started reading The New American Story by Bill Bradley.

So far, his intelligent thought and lack of chest-thumping false bravado remind me of why in the past I'd wished he was taken more seriously as a presidential candidate.

He is the only politican I've ever contributed money to.

Right now I'm reading The Grays by Whitley Strieber. So far it's keeping me engaged which is quite an achievement since I have a very short attention span.

On Cil's recommendation I just finished reading "The Time Traveller's wife" and greatly enjoyed it. A very unusual love story.
