Holiday Greetings to All!!!  'Tis the season to be jolly and at my age, more often 'Jolly' means finding a nice, quiet and warm place to read!  Here are a few of my favorite new reads:

Robert STS for December

I have always been a fan of Michael Crichton and I found The Andromeda Strain and Sphere on sale.  It's always  interesting to see an artist's or author's early works.

The Great Escape by Paul Brickhill was an awesome blast from the past for me.  It is an often amusing recounting of life as a POW in World War II Germany.  It reminds me very much of the old TV show Hogan's Heroes.

The Stolen Ones by Owen Laukkanen is an interesting read.  It's interesting in that it highlights an issue that really needs more done about (smuggling women in to the country to be sold as sex slaves). Unfortunately,  I found the book left a lot to be desired.  I couldn't connect with the protagonists and I would like to have had a bit more mystery to it.

Still, these are some good titles to settle into on a cold winter's night.  Tell me, what amusing, interesting or strange tales are you cuddling up with?

  1. I've not read The Andromeda Strain but I've watched the TV movie. Is it the same one?

  2. I haven't read any of these, but I loved Hogan's Heroes :) Mr. Schultz always made me laugh :)
    Have a great weekend.

  3. I haven't read a Michael Crichton book in a while. I had forgotten that he wrote The Andromeda Strain. What a legacy he has left! Now I want to re-read more of his books. Have a great weekend.

  4. Interesting selection. I always love it when I can find books on the cheap. Great stack this week.


  5. I haven't read this author in a long while...these do look tempting!

  6. I believe so. There is also a movie and I've seen none of them.

  7. My favorite way to spend the holidays is to catch up on some reading too. I have not read anything by Michael Crichton. I need to pick up one of his books though, since I love the movies based on his books.

  8. I'm at the bottom, or almost!!! At least I made it here, but BARELY!!! (As usual . . . hmmm.) I've GOT to get here EARLIER on Saturday's!!! I don't sleep in . . . how do you all get here SO EARLY??? Hmmm??? See you around at your blogs!

  9. As usual, the books are soooooo much better. Jurassic Park or Airframe or Timeline are some good ones to choose from to start with.

  10. The only thing better than getting books at a discount is getting them for free ;)

  11. While I have watched movies based on Crichton books, I have yet to read one. Andromeda Strain is one I am curious about as I have heard of it but haven't seen or read it...yet. Happy reading.

  12. I'm on the west coast so, I don't have to get up early as much as I can just stay up late :)

  13. Nice book haul. I'm curious about The Stolen Ones. Hope you enjoy all of them. :)

  15. All the books look great and I am a huge Crichton fan too.

  16. I've been a Michael Crichton fan for a long time as well. I think it is only his Eaters of the Dead book that I haven't read, and the Pirate one.
