The Storm by Clive Cussler.

My mom gave it to me and said my grandma liked his books. I guess we'll see if I like it.

Been re-reading the first two Chronicles of Thomas Covenant series in preparation for reading the third and final one. I just finished book 3 of the first trilogy and am halfway through book 1 of the 2nd trilogy.

I loved these books years ago, and wasn't sure I would still enjoy them now but I do. Especially the first book of trilogy #2 (The Wounded Land).

Been away from proper books for a while. I hate reading them on a backlit screen and wasnt able to hold my old kindle til recently, (i still cant manipulate proper books easily) So ì just finished Sea of rust last week and slammed through Stephen King's End of Watch and Ben Aaronovitch's Furthest Station this weekend.
Gonna start either Joe Hill's The Fireman, the latest Reacher book from Lee Child or Killing Gravity by Cory White later I've not decided yet.

I'm of two minds about ereaders. I also don't especially like reading a backlit screen for novel length works....but I do like to be able to get older works for cheap or free, and to carry an entire library in something the size and weight of a single paperback.

That said, I'm worried about the continuing viability of printed books, Barnes and Noble, one of the only remaining big national book retailers seems to be having a real problem as a going concern, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it check out in the next two years or so. That would leave what, Books a Million? Which doesn't even exist out here...

And indie bookstores are hard hit as well, a lot of 'em have closed in recent years, at least the ones near me... :-(

There's just something about browsing through a physical bookstore, and reading a real printed paper book that nothing electronic can match...
