Finished listening to The Law of Innocence, the latest Lincoln Lawyer/Mickey Haller novel by Michael Connelly. Lots of courtroom/defense lawyer maneuvering.
Finished reading God Save the Mark, comedic crime fiction by Donald Westlake. Good, but I like the Dortmunder humorous crime series by Westlake even better.

Started listening to The Kingdom, a Norwegian crime novel by Jo Nesbø.

I have read or listened to them all, and you are correct, they ARE all good to very good.

The Secret Language of Cells is about cellular communication . It turns out cells are continually communicating with other parts of the body and monitoring viral attacks and evaluating what action need to be taken. We have many types of cells so this is necessarily a complex process. This is why viral attacks are so difficult to deal with.

Just finished Vonnegut's novel Breakfast of Champions. Worth reading. I'm working on my essay about this book and I found where to buy personal statement to save my time. Thats' convy. Plus I can be calm that my essay would be written without any grammar and spelling errors.

Finished listening to The Kingdom, a Norwegian crime novel by Jo Nesbø. Too long, should have been edited to ½ as many pages. I prefer the Harry Hole series of crime/police procedurals by the same author,

Started listening to Eddie's Boy, the fourth in the Butcher's Boy series of crime novels by Thomas Perry.

Finished listening to Eddie's Boy, the fourth in the Butcher's Boy series of crime novels by Thomas Perry. Final Score: Eddie and his boy - about 50, would-be Mafia hit men - 0.

Started listening to With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa, a first person account by E. B. Sledge. The TV mini series "The Pacific" drew heavily from this book.

Started reading The Devil's Candy: The Anatomy Of A Hollywood Fiasco, by Julie Salamon. Non fiction account of the making of the movie The Bonfire of the Vanities.

Finished reading The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson.

Started reading Sting-Ray Afternoons: A Memoir by Steve Rushin. Sound like a stroll down memory lane in the hazy 70's. I'm probably the same age as the author, so this should be interesting.

Pedalare! Pedalare! A History of Italian Cycling by John Foot.

It's a great read that gives historical contextualization of Italian cycling beginning in the industrial north in the late 19th century, through the first Giro's, Toti's exploitation by the fascists, and the role cycling played in communist resistance and rebuilding the nation after the war. I skimmed a few of the later chapters on modern cycling, which features a lot of shoehorned Lance talk, but otherwise it's a great read.
