    Finished The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye' over the weekend, and started Bonnie MacBird's second Sherlock Holmes novel, 'Unquiet Spirits'.

    Interesting lady. She spent many years as a Hollywood producer and screenwriter, and now has begun a second career as a novelist...and a damned good one. I've been reading Holmes stories for fifty years and her first effort, 'Art in the Blood' was one of the best I've ever encountered.

    Once a year I read my all time favorite.... To Kill a Mockingbird.
    At the end of the day...I am still glad that I am me. Tail and all.

    Thrawn by legendary Timothy Zahn. It’s the first canon appearance of Grand Admiral Thrawn in the Star Wars universe. Zahn had originaly created Thrawn for the Star Wars Expanded Universe in 1991, but when Disney bought Lucasfilm they cast out the Expanded Universe from the official canon. Luckily, they had the sense to let Thrawn back in.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."
    - Eugene V. Debs (1855-1926), American labor leader

    Just finished a David drake series. Classic space opera stuff.
    "Sir, I exist!" cried a man to the Universe.
    "However," replied the Universe, "that fact has not created in me a sense of obligation."

    As anticipated, I finished Spoiled Brats last night, I started Man Seeking Woman, also by Simon Rich. Another short story book, so far the highlights have been an autobiographical story from the perspective of an unused condom and it's life in a wallet...that and personal adds from dogs (one of which is a personal from a dog to a humped leg! LOL!), absolutely adorable.
