Well, been awhile since anyone posted. What has everyone else been reading?
Currently reading a book called Gretel, which is a full length adult modernization of Hansel and Gretal. The result of desperately searching for ANYTHING good to read. Its passable, but not really worthy of recommending.

Coop check out an author called 'Greg Iles' ... Shaun bought me a book of his called 'The Bone Tree' , haven't found anything else of his, but I liked it and it is apparently a part of a series....also have been re-reading Patricia Cornwell....mostly her Scarpetta stuff
Got this interesting book for Christmas called the Blumhouse Book of Nightmares. Its short horror stories written by various horror directors like Eli Roth and James Wan that have been collected. I've enjoyed it. The most interesting wasn't even really horror--more revenge I guess. It was about this Jewish guy who is just fried, tired of life so he goes to Costa Rica for a few months to party. He meets this blonde girl and goes to her house and she lives in a community of Nazis. He visits with her great-grandfather who is on his deathbed and while alone writes a number down and shows it to the man which sends the man into fits. Its not explained but I think the number was the serial number of one of his relatives that was in one of the death camps.
Anyway, that was just one of the stories. Pretty interesting stuff. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a horror aficionado.

I just finished 2 great books by Herman Raucher: Summer of '42, and Maynard's House. I started a third called A Glimpse of Tiger, but I'm going to return it. I highly recommend checking out this author though if you are not familiar.

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. The story of a young boy who was on a single engine flight when the pilot has a heart attack. He has to land the plane himself, and then is stuck way out in the forest with only a hatchet to survive.
Well, actually I just finished it. Took me only 2 days, which is rare for me, as I tend to not rush through books that quickly.
