And how were they. I’ve read lots of Koontz’s work but not that series.

Starting ‘Ordinary Grace’ again. William Kent Kruger definitely hit a homer on this book.

I liked that series a lot, it is some of my favorites of Dean's books.

Finished a three book series by John Ringo. The titles are Live Free or Die, Citadel, and The Hot Gate. It's typical John Ringo with some interesting characters, good action, and humor.

I've been working my way through the Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelley. Very enjoyable, I haven't watched any of the series yet. In between waiting for books to become available, I've been reading "Hamilton" by Ron Chernow, it's long but it's excellent!

Currently reading book 3 in the Superego series: Betrayal.

The series is about a intergalactic psychotic hit man, and quite amusing.

Did a flight from San Diego to Baltimore, and back.

Read We Were Soldiers.

Damn outstanding book!!

As an FYSA, the movie is about 50% of the book.

Ready Player One is on my list, need to acquire a copy
Guess I need to add Player Two to that list as well.

Just finished two books. "Shadows Reel" by CJ Box, the latest in the Joe Pickett series. I liked it but not as much as some of the prior books.

The other was "The Match" by Harlan Coben. This the second in series the first being "The Boy in the Woods". I really liked this, it hit home because I've experienced a "match" from DNA that changed my life.

One Year Later is a good second book. And the third one is good also. Lots of we shoulda done this, stuff in them.

I posted earlier that I’ve been alternating between books considered classics and contemporary lit. I haven’t been to the bookstore, so on either side of 1984 I read a Vince Flynn book, Extreme Measures, and currently reading Lee Child’sNight School. I was great to read Flynn once again, I had given all my earlier books to my dad and I suppose they’re in my brother’s basement somewhere; wish I had them all back again now. I find Child uneven. I’ll read one and think it’s great, and the next…not so much. I need to settle on my next classic.

Wanted to read another Mafia story.
“Underboss Sammy the Bull Gravano Story of Life in the Mafia”

What a life. His you tube channel is worth a look if interested.
He’s got a series, I think this is the 1st episode.

Just finished Mark Greaney's "Sierra Six" which was pretty good. It gives background on how Gentry became "Six".
Also continuing to plow through Baldacci's work. Finishing up the King and Maxwell series and about to start on the Camel Club.
