    Just finished the fourth volume of Judge Ti by Frederic Lenormand, Petits Meurtres entre Moines. Nice little investigation in two monasteries, even if a plot point was stolen directly from Robert Van Gulik's work.

    That's a good one, @Thunderfinger. I loved the rotoscoped film too.

    I'm on Europe at Midnight, the second of four books in Dave Hutchinson's 'Fractured Europe' series of near-future spy/sci-fi novels. I recommend them very highly.

    This NTTT drama is starting to take its toll on me.

    I'm going to start reading "Moonraker" again to satisfy my Bond fix.

    The film is fantastic, something of its own. The book is also one of PKD s better ones.

    Finally checking out my first book of the year (better late than never), reading Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for the first time, after seeing the film 100 or more times. Love it.

    Right now, I'm reading Histoires Secrètes de Sherlock Holmes, by René Réouven, featuring the pastiches the french writer wrote about Conan Doyle's sleuth.

    5117tZgSleL._SR600%2C315_PIWhiteStrip%2CBottomLeft%2C0%2C35_PIStarRatingFOURANDHALF%2CBottomLeft%2C360%2C-6_SR600%2C315_ZA(15%20Reviews)%2C445%2C286%2C400%2C400%2Carial%2C12%2C4%2C0%2C0%2C5_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

    Quite a few surprises so far. And yes, the story of the cormorant would have caused quite a shock if it had been known at the time.

    Really funny film. That scene where they suddenly get spaced out and can hardly walk is hilarious. Haven t read the book, but several of his articles.

    I've read Hell's Angels (inevitably) and enjoyed it very much.

    Love that scene, watching them struggle to get into the casino. That whole film is classic to me, it's in my Top 10 all time. Lots of funny moments.

    Two titles I read recently: George Lucas: A Life by Brian Jay Jones and Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Both enjoyable, Holmes especially by Doyle is a bit easier to read in short story form. George Lucas proves how self centered he is. He can say he truly worked for his success though.

    My mom finished Forrest Gump and Gump & Co. by Winston Groom. She liked the former, not the latter. I recommend that as well.
