I am chewing my way through Stephen King's "11/22/1963." Since I usually only have time to read while commuting, it is taking me forever to read it. Going on a cruise in a few weeks, should be able to finish it then.

It's 99% info dumps of details about the household expenses. More later when I get to a real keyboard.

I finally finished Sacred Hearts, it did pick up a bit halfway through but still a slog. I've now started Wildfire At Midnight by Mary Stewart. It's my first of these but I've read good things here about Mary Stewart's mysteries.

Mary Stewart's books are so good. Watch the cigarette count in this one :p

Just starting Daughter of Fortune by Carla Kelly. New Mexico, 1600s. The old cover is something else.

I'm really enjoying Lionheart, but it's almost done. What other Richard I novels should I read?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
