Hap and Leonard Make More Trouble


Devil Red by Joe R. Lansdale. Best pals Hap and Leonard "return in a red-hot, mayhem-fueled thriller to face a vampire cult, the Dixie Mafia, and the deadliest assassin they've ever encountered - Devil Red." Lansdale is big in Italy and very kung-fuey. Bill Crider says Lansdale's daughter is kung-fuey as well. (I don't actually know any of these people.)

Toys by James Patterson and Neil McMahon. All these Patterson novels should be in paperback.

My Father at 100 by Ron Reagan. Reagan was really hitting the talk show circuit for a month or so. I heard Ron speak on one television show and he commented on how even though he and his father were politically opposite they never let that interfere with their relationship.

A Pleasant Day Slightly Spoiled by Chicken Manure

Pleasant Day

A nearby farm must have spreading their chicken manure this morning. The smell only slightly disturbed the sunny and pleasant weather.

Library's Front Sign

Some Sort of Coffee Cake

I found this in the staff break room. These food items are always appearing. So I eat them.

Spice Coffee Cake


Mercy Kill by Lori Armstrong. Sequel to No Mercy which circ'ed well. Former sniper Mercy Gunderson is adjusting to he new post-Army life in in South Dakota. Mercy's part-time bartender work is must by a murder in her bar's parking lot.

Satori by Don Winslow. "A Novel based on Trevanian's Shibumi" I read Shibumi and the novel was entertaining but far-fetched. Nicholai Hel is 26 years old and in solitary confinement in 1951 Japan. The Americans promise freedom and a passport if he travels to Beijing and kills a Russian.
