Split Second Dexter Has to Suck It and See This Morning

Large Print

Split Second by Catherine Coulter. No author photos on most large print books.


Dexter: the fifth season starring James Remar. Remar was always good at playing the bad guy. I watched season one of this but kept getting the plots from novels and tv episodes confused. The gal who plays Dexter's sister was rail thin.

Digital Music Even If No One Refers to CDs as Digital Music

Suck It and See by The Arctic Monkeys. [Comment withheld]

This Loud Morning by David Cook. [No comment to withhold]

The guy with the ear? Man, I have no idea...

Books, Music, Tom Piccirilli


Every Shallow Cut by Tom Piccirilli. This novel has received very good reviews. I know because Piccirilli always links to them. I think the story has something to do with a road trip and murder. Since this is a Piccirilli book I almost guarantee a muscle car in the story.

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin. This won a Big Time Novel Award. Two guys grow up as friends until one is suspected in a girl's disappearance. Twenty years later the same guy is suspected in another disappearance and the other guy is a cop.

With A Little Luck by Caprice Crane. The cover says: Teenage romance. The back says: Adult romance in Los Angeles radio station.

Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan. Irish woman travels to New York in 1920s to make money for injured husband at home. Will she return to Ireland or stay in the U.S.?

Set the Night on Fire by Libby Fischer Hellmann. Hellmann's books check out here. This one came out last December. Don't tell anyone I missed the pub date. Hellmann Fact: She's a nice lady and does not look like her vertically smooshed author photo.

Spiral by Paul McLuen. Thriller with nanorobots, scientists, and a lousy cover.

Only Mine by Susan Mallery. Paperback contemporary romance.

Angela Sloan by James Whorton, Jr. 14-year-old girl's CIA agent father disappears. She tries to find him in post-Watergate D.C. "A priceless coming-of-age story about stealing diner food and salvaging lost identities."

Music on CD

The Harrow and the Harvest by Gillian Welch. Old-time country music fans rejoice by wearing straw hats.
