Just finished up the Harry Potter series for the first time. Very interesting books.

What a world Rowling created.

I'm loving this series. Have a hard time putting these books down.
Book 3 was awesome! Best book of the series so far.

I'm half way through book 4 "A Feast for Crows" now. Not as good as the rest but I'm still really enjoying it.

Started reading "The Hunger Games" on my new Kindle Fire. Wanted to power through it before I go see the movie.

It's an easy read--and compelling. You'll get through it in no time.

Yeah I got to a point where I couldn't put it down last night. The chapters were just flying by. I'm about 40% through it already.

"Beat the Reaper," by Josh Bazell

Originally Posted by Amazon
Dr. Peter Brown is an intern at Manhattan's worst hospital, with a talent for medicine, a shift from hell, and a past he'd prefer to keep hidden. Whether it's a blocked circumflex artery or a plan to land a massive malpractice suit, he knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men.

Pietro "Bearclaw" Brnwna is a hitman for the mob, with a genius for violence, a well-earned fear of sharks, and an overly close relationship with the Federal Witness Relocation Program. More likely to leave a trail of dead gangsters than a molecule of evidence, he's the last person you want to see in your hospital room.

Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddy Squillante, is Dr. Brown's new patient, with three months to live and a very strange idea: that Peter Brown and Pietro Brnwa might-just might-be the same person ...

Now, with the mob, the government, and death itself descending on the hospital, Peter has to buy time and do whatever it takes to keep his patients, himself, and his last shot at redemption alive. To get through the next eight hours-and somehow beat the reaper.

Yep finished it in a couple of days. Fastest I've ever read a book.

Also just finished up book 4 "A Feast for Crows" and have moved onto book 5 "A Dance with Dragons".

Just finished A Storm of Swords and HOLY CRAP. That was a great read.

Starting Feast for Crows right now, just a chapter in.

Took a break from a Dance with Dragons to read the entire Hunger Games series this weekend. Remind me why one is for adults and one is targeted to "young adults"? They are both pretty brutal.

I just finished The One: The Life and Music of James Brown by RJ Smith. A great look back at the life of Brown and you get to read about the artist and how he came up to be what he is. Good stuff.

I just bought Showdown by David Corn which is probably an Obama rah-rah piece, but I like the behind the scenes writeups on White House/POTUS happenings.

I am really looking forward to reading The Mark Inside: A Perfect Swindle, a Cunning Revenge, and a Small History of the Big Con by Amy Reading. This books sounds like the ultimately pissed off guy gets revenge story and it's true to boot! Here is a brief summary of the story:

Quote:
In 1919, Texas rancher J. Frank Norfleet lost everything he had in a stock market swindle. He did what many other marks did—he went home, borrowed more money from his family, and returned for another round of swindling.

Only after he lost that second fortune did he reclaim control of his story. Instead of crawling back home in shame, he vowed to hunt down the five men who had conned him. Armed with a revolver and a suitcase full of disguises, Norfleet crisscrossed the country from Texas to Florida to California to Colorado, posing as a country hick and allowing himself to be ensnared by confidence men again and again to gather evidence on his enemies. Within four years, Frank Norfleet had become nationally famous for his quest to out-con the con men.

Through Norfleet’s ingenious reverse-swindle, Amy Reading reveals the mechanics behind the scenes of the big con—a piece of performance art targeted to the most vulnerable points of human nature.

Reading shows how the big con has been woven throughout U.S. history. From the colonies to the railroads and the Chicago Board of Trade, America has always been a speculative enterprise, and bunco men and bankers alike have always understood that the common man was perfectly willing to engage in minor fraud to get a piece of the expanding stock market—a trait that made him infinitely gullible.

Hunger Games characters do not get their sex on at the drop of a hat.
