    I'm still burning back through my Reacher books. I've gone through "The Affair" and "Running Blind" since my last post in this thread. Started "Echo Burning" yesterday.

    Love Amos Decker. It took me longer than usual to get into it. Enjoyed it, but not as much as I have enjoyed his other books.

    Can't go wrong with the Reacher series. Don't even have to read them "in order" to enjoy them.

    This was fantastic. A very good, poignant, funny read.

    I have this one in my stack to take with me to Michigan next week. I'm really looking foward to it.

    I just finished a short novel of magical realism called "What the Family Needed" by Steven Amsterdam. It was fun but not earth-shattering.

    Getting ready to start Station Eleven but Emily St. John Mandel, which is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel that takes place somewhere in the Great Lakes region so I figured it was appropriate for my Michigan trip.

    Slowly working through Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell and I'm less than impressed, but it probably wasn't meant for me.

    I just read Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler.

    During the NBA Tournament I kept seeing the advertisements for the Starz TV series based on this “coming of age” book. A young woman moves to New York City and starts working in the restaurant business.

    It was very good – loved Danler’s writing style... it was sortof poetic.

    I'm reading "The Chicago Cubs: Story of a Curse" by Rich Cohen. I'm a huge fan of baseball history and this traces the history of the Cubs and points out numerous curses not just the Billy Goat. Pretty quick read.

    Also reading "Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky. Traces the history of salt and how until about 100 years ago Salt was one of the most valuable items on earth.
