Nothing Interesting

Large Print

Two novels.


State of Wisconsin Blue Book, 2009-2010. I am not going to waste space on the New Books shelf with this.

Sewer Repair

Part of our broken sewer line was repaired. I filmed the work and will post the video when I get the time. Not that anyone will watch it.

Murder and Mayhem in Muskego

Th Murder and Mayhem in Muskego is coming up in three weeks or so. I'll try to get some author interviews.
There is a great slate of writers this year. Joe Konrath would be a good one to film, he likes to talk.

Variety: John Keegan, Danielle Steel, Scientist Biography


The Strangest Man: the hidden life of Paul Dirac, Mystic of the Atom by Graham Farmelo. Dirac was awarded the 1933 Nobel Prize in physics when he was only 31 years old. I saw a review for this book and mentioned to The Old Man. The Old Man asks, "Are you going to buy it?" Well, yeah, I guess so.

The American Civil War by John Keegan. Keegan takes on the Civil War. I guess he ran out of European wars to write about. Keegan does some great writing and analysis so this should be good.

S.W.A.T. Magazine, December, 2009 issue. A gun magazine we subscribe to. The covers are almost always the same. The only month-to-month differences among cover photos are the guy and the rifle he is holding. This one has two dudes on the cover with one guy aiming a FN SCAR carbine. This cover also shares a commonality among most covers in that the cops on the front are from Arizona - where the editor lives. CORRECTION: The guys on the cover are from Alabama.
Read this magazine with caution; you'll just be saddened about all the firearms you cannot afford.


Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwell. I think I read one of her books.

The Epoch Point by Spencer Zimmerman. Robert Davis is a young Airman fresh out of Air Force basic training who, after being held captive in China, suddenly finds himself unraveling the most immense conspiracy in history. International intrigue, hidden histories, the active hand of God, etc.

Blood Game by Iris Johansen. Johansen lives near Atlanta. I'm too lazy to read the front coverleaf so I read the back.

Audio on CD

Blue Smoke and Murder by Elizabeth Lowell. 9 CDs at 10 hours. A river guide gets involved with art thieves and calls for help from an investigative agency that owes her a favor.

Southern Lights by Danielle Steel [Hah! I hope the ghost writer gets good money.]

A Legacy Through Time by Debbie Fritter. Romance novel by local author.
