I've been reading some C.J. Box novels lately. Good stories.

I reread spine of time each year as well. I have a copy on truck at work for when I get a few free minutes and need an escape.

Love C.J. Box novels ss well. Thankfully they are on the free Libby audiobook system. I download them and listen as I drive. Sometimes if I am working with my hands on a mundane project I pop the earplugs in and listen as I work around the house or in my workshop.

That's my favorite HDT. I felt like I was there.

Here is a book I just finished "A Wild Cat Escape"   www.amazon.com/dp/B08Z4GCR69   It was written by my former  Special Forces radio operator Terry McIntosh.  Terry has classified this as historical fiction. I play a small role in the story and can see what is on the next page before it unfolds. I will let the reader separate the fiction from the facts on the ground. We lived it and are now letting our stories be told.

This book ties in with another book Terry McIntosh wrote  "The Youngest Green Beret" also on Amazon  and my own book "My War – Vietnam 68-69 / 71-73"  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088SG8S6D  . I highly recommend all three books if you want to see unembellished stories about what life was like for us at SF Camp Thanh Tri and beyond.

This is the last of the Stephen King books that were written under his pseudonym, Richard Bachman. At this point I've finished all of the 'Bachman' stories. I've enjoyed them as much as his 'normal' books, and some even more so. The grittier, crime-based, not-so-fantasy novels are a welcomed change.

Thinner was a good read. Another one that portrays just how much better the book always is than the movie.

Now, on to the next one. 📖 📚

Note ~ In a conversation in this story there are a couple of characters that refer to a situation as something out of a Stephen King book. I'm sure he enjoyed dropping tidbits of this nature in all of his 'other works' before folks realized that he was in fact Richard Bachman.

I need to read this so I can know what the big deal is. It blows my mind that this book is so hard to get ahold of.
