Rereading "To Kill a Mockingbird" but just got my hands on "The Girl who Kicked the Hornets Nest" so in we go.
Loved the first, liked the second, big hopes for the third.

Yes it does suck. But I am holding out hope that the parties can come to an agreement and get the 4th one finished and published. I'm an optimist.

I'm about 60% through The Girl Who Played With Fire - definitely a page turner, more than the first one IMO. At this rate I'll finish it tomorrow and I just got it on Tues night!

There's a new book out that should give all of us some snow stoke! :)

Here's the review in this week's Mammoth Times for Jeremy Evans' In Search of Powder, A Story of America’s Disappearing Ski Bum

I'm going to suggest that SG buy it for me for my b-day. :lol: :geek:


Quote:
Most of all, we liked his long chapter profiling Keith Erickson. If you live and ski in Mammoth and haven’t spent some time on the ski hill with Keith, well, then, you haven’t really skied Mammoth.

Keith is a Bay Area guy and he has settled down in Mammoth. Those days when he lived in a different ski town each year are long gone. We’re the lucky ones. He, his wife, Kim, and their daughter, Zoe, are now as much of Mammoth as, say, Mammoth Rock.

But we didn’t know him the way we know him now, thanks to Jeremy Evans, who has produced a great profile on Keith, tucked into superb book about ski towns like ours.

"A Peep at Washoe" by J. Ross Browne and "The Big Bonanza" by William Wright Awesome stories about traveling from Placerville over the Sierra to Virginia City, NV. in 1860. Unbelievable what people and places were like back then.

Just finished The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest and now I'm sad there isn't a 4th book...and a 5th and 6th :(

Next I may re-read The World According to Garp

I just finished The girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now waiting on borrowing the Girl who played with fire from the library. Been looking for other books to read until the snowfall picks up.

Into Thin Air by John Krakauer. Its about the 1996 Mt. Everest expedition where 12 people died. I dont know if reading about people freezing to death is the best way to prepare for snowboard season.
