    I'm re-reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It's my favorite book of all time, hands down. Funny, interesting, easy to follow yet complex enough to tease the mind. It's beautiful.

    Mine are light reading , I suppose. I used to read nothing but non- fiction--politics, some history, etc. Got really tired of it, so I now go for murder mysteries and funny stuff. I read fast, so a day, day and a half --I'm done with one and have another started.

    Mountain of the Dead: The Dyatlov Pass Incident by Keith McCloskey

    In January 1959 10 experienced young skiers set out to travel to a mountain named Mount Otorten in the far north of Russia. During the trip, one of the skiers fell ill and returned. The remaining nine lost their way and ended up on another mountain slope known as Kholat Syakhl,"Mountain of the Dead."

    On the night of February 1, 1959, something or someone caused the skiers to flee their tent in terror, using knives to slash their way out. When they failed to return home, search parties were sent out and their bodies were found, some with massive internal injuries but all without external marks. The autopsy report showed that the injuries were caused by "an unknown compelling force”

    The Battle of Evernight, by Cecilia Dart-Thornton.
    The third, and obviously to some, final book of a fantastic fantasy trilogy . A Jack Vance style tale of an interesting protagonist adventuring though an incredible fictional world, based largely on Celtic mythology .
    It’s a very descriptive tale. Like Moby Dick the listing can be exhausting. However, the authors use of the English language is exceptional! Brilliant even.
    Highly recommended for certain types of readers. You know who you are.
