    I've been enjoying the author Ann Rule. She writes true crime books. Lots of them are from Washington State. Interesting finding out about old murders and crimes from nearby.

    Dawn of the Dead by George Romero & Susanna Sparrow

    There's a lot more sexual tension in the book then came out in the film.

    Oohh I forgot I picked up Romeo and Juliet, and McBeth from a resale shop to add in some classic gewdness. From that one guy who no one can understand without "description" the additions to the hi school vs of my books REALLY just piss me off, I want to read as Shakespeare wrote, not what some modern nincompoop had to say.

    Am just about finished with "Retrotopia", by John Michael Greer. Good escapism. Would take the train to Lakewood anyday. When I get thru it, will move on to something a bit heavier, "Plague of Corruption," by Dr. Mikovitz. I don't know if I'll get thru it, though. Very heavy and technical in medical terms. From what my friends who have already read it tell me, it's mind blowing.

    Isn't that the fictional book, that kinda portrayed him as an almost mythical guy? Tried reading that but couldn't get into it, as after The Book of Five Rings it's almost an insult to his name.
