    Never Go Back - Lee Child

    Another great Jack Reacher novel and one of my favorites as it is the only one where Reacher doesn't kill anyone. He maims a few, but doesn't kill anyone. Amazing- :)

    I recently finished In Ashes Born by Nathan Lowell. This is the 1st book in the second arc of Lowell's Golden Age Of The Solar Clipper series.

    I highly recommend the entire series. Hell I highly recommend everything written by Nathan Lowell. :tu:

    Don't read much other than the newspaper, but I just started David Lipsky's biography of David Foster Wallace. Strange book about a stranger guy.

    Even though highly controversial the Mein Kampf, I believe in reading everything.

    Top Secret Twenty-One - Janet Evanovich

    This was really good, pulp fiction written by a woman. Our hero is Stephanie Plum, bond enforcer. There are the usual corpses with gunshot wounds, a Polonium 210 killer and a "sorta-spy" guy and a cop. Not to mention a dwarf and a pack of killer Chihuahuas.

    This was the first "multiple murder" thrillers that had more than a few laughs in it. Very refreshing - :)

    Dark Watch - Clive Cussler

    Good title. The greed is high and the cost is higher. Piracy on the high seas. Slavery. The body count is in the hundreds. Good stuff!

    The Helmsman series, by the late Bill Baldwin. This is a re-read, it's been ~10 years since the last time I read these. I don't have these in an electronic format, I'm reading the paperbacks from my physical library. First non-technical paper books I've read in 4-5 years.

    I'm still reading The Passage, by Justin Cronin. Its been a little bit of a slog which is a common criticism of an otherwise fairly highly acclaimed novel. I have a couple "palate cleanser" books lined up.
