Recent Reads

1. The Tourist
First book I have read by this popular author. This is a classic spy thriller and is supposed to be the first in a trilogy. I love spy thrillers and miss the great writing that came out of the cold war era. This book was an okay read - neither really interesting nor a great ride. Ah well, my search for the new writers of this genre continues.

2. The Sea of Monsters
Book 2 of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. A fun, quick, light read - written for kids. My nieces love the series, so am catching up on the books so we can discuss them.

3. Marley and Me
This is our current read aloud book on the boat. Cute story.
