DVDs and Paperbacks

DVD (I'm short on time, find your own trailers.)

Captain America starring Some Guy In A Costume. Comic book comes about through scientific testing and fights the HYDRA organization.

Four the Record by Miranda Lambert. Singer sings songs.


Slocum Along the Corpse River by Jake Logan. Logan is a corporate name and this is the 391st novel in this series of action westerns featuring wanderer John Slocum. There is always a mix of sex and violence in the Slocum novels.

Redemption, Kansas by James Reasoner. Reasoner writes everything and does it well. Texan is injured in cattle stampede and recuperates in Redemtion, KS. While there he wonders about a local killings and fearful residents. Blurb on back cover by Bill Crider. That does not mean I am Crider's dancing monkey and read whatever he tells me to read. (I don't have time.)

Books on CD

V is For Vengeance by Sue Grafton. I was speaking to someone on Thanksgiving about this and my comment that Grafton is only four books from retirement. Later that night I was physically ill and had a lousy evening.
