Whoa... when did that happen?

That's really cool. Amazon.com has a Dark Tower store, with every book, every book on the book, and all audio versions on it. Wicked cool.

The Dark Tower series was amazing. I started reading that series back around '84. It was awesome to finish it last year.

"Rush: Chemistry" by Jon Collins.

 

Now I'm re-reading the two most autobiographical chapters of Neil's "Travelin Music."

I'm on an Anne Tyler kick right now. I just finished "Saint Maybe" and now I'm halfway through "A Patchwork Planet." Next up: "A Slipping-Down Life" and then "Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant."

 

Tyler reminds me of one of my favorite novelists - John Irving. His most recent, "Until I Find You," was given a good review by Neil Peart on Peart's website. (And Geddy has also said he's a John Irving fan; see the PRESTO tourbook.)

I actually picked up a novel from half-price books because it was the title of a Rush tune- Losing It. And the author, Alan Cumyn, is Canadian! I'm almost done with it and it's hilarious new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

I had really mixed feelings about this one. As most of you know, I am a huge fan of the Aubrey/Maturin series. I first read the books eight years ago, and re-read them when I learned that a feature film was being made. This book has been on the market for quite some time. I had been putting off buying it because I knew that it was unfinished and that I would be depressed over that fact. However, my undying fandom overrode my fears and I bought it. It's Patrick O'Brian writing at his usual level of greatness. The language, the humor, the characterization, and the vivid detail are all there in full bloom. The bad part is that once the story really starts to roll, it abruptly ends. Even though when reading it I knew that I was saying goodbye, I am still glad that I did and I am also glad to know that Mr. O'Brian's skills remained undiminished to the end.

Just finishing "Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant" by Anne Tyler. It was supposed to be one of her best, but I didn't think so. After this, it's probably onto another Anne Tyler book.
