1) Cuba Libre by Elmore Leonard: A switch for Elmore, a historically based novel. Still his same style of writing & colorful characters, but with a background of Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Interesting as usual, I really like this guy.

2) Grown Up All Wrong by Robert Christgau: Essays on musicians by a long-time music critic.
Some are album reviews, some concert, some general musician. Always learn something new reading these kinds of things.

3) M.Y.T.H. Inc In Action by Robert Asprin: I used to really enjoy this series, but after reading this one, I'm not really sure why.

4) Strange Highways by Dean Koontz: Collection of stories by the other modern master of horror. You may not like all the stories, but guaranteed you'll like most of them.

5) Journey To The Underground World by Lin Carter: Beginning of a series of E.R.Burroughs style novels. Quick and easy reading, if you like that sort of thing.

6) Eat The Rich by P.J. O`Rourke: Humorously serious (or seriously humorous) look at economics as it relates to places as diverse as Cuba, Russia, Tanzania, & Hong Kong. Not
only an interesting read, but you may learn something!

So a mostly good selection of books this time around. Interestingly, I'm reading a book now that
is about Cuba during the Spanish-American War, non-fiction, but ties in nicely with the Elmore Leonard novel above. And not actually planned, since they came from two different TBR piles.

Sometimes life's just like that...
