I'm back on my Greg Iles kick. Just finishing up The Quiet Game.
I went to a used book store in downtown Waxhaw, NC and picked up "The Road" by Cormac MaCarthy and "The Sword of Shannara" by Terry Brooks. I started reading both, "The Road" is quite depressing.
"Ike's Bluff" by Evan Thomas.
How Eisenhower played the Russians in the 50's and early 60's. Pretty interesting.

"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
I am reading Cincinnati Seasons by Earl Lawson. I have had this book for a long time but I don't think I had ever read it. Lawson tells stories from his 30+ years of covering the Reds. Mostly funny stories and some run ins he had with players over the years. Very good chapter on Johnny Temple. Lawson has been dead for ten years now but these stories are still a fun read.
Reds Fan Since 1971
Been working on "Life", Keith Richards memoirs, off and on for several months now and finished it this past weekend. Dude has got some incredibly good stories as I'm sure you can imagine.
Started "Damned" by Chuck Palahniuk and I'm about halfway through it now. Decent so far.
