Finally got around to picking up The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. It's not my usual cup of tea as I'm more of a Sci-fi/Fantasy person, but it's keeping my attention and I'm enjoying it so far.

That's a good one. I was reminded of it, recently, when I read Buzzfeed's "53 Books You Won't Be Able to Put Down (http://www.buzzfeed.com/lincolnthompson/53-books-you-wont-be-able-to-put-down?utm_term=.tuaXgrVdjD#.owJ6XzoQd)

I enjoyed the link and there are so many books to read...there's so few hours to do it in. Beautiful.

No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy.  I don't know why I'm so surprised that I found the book to be better than the movie.  I will say that the filmmakers did a very good job with the adaptation.

Favorite quote: "It's not about knowin' where you are. It's about thinkin' you got there without takin' anything with you."

Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident by Donnie Eichar

When I first heard about this incident, I found it terrifying.  The author provides an excellent description on the events leading up to the incident, as well as the investigation immediately thereafter.  He is also able to debunk some common theories and provide a somewhat plausible alternative explanation based on science, rather than the paranormal.  That being said, I was left wanting a little more when the book ended.  Not more of an explanation...perhaps more of a denouement?  Or, maybe I read it too fast?

That sounds like an interesting read, Tea. Very suitable for Halloween week. I don't like to be scared, though, so I probably won't read it.

It actually wasn't that scary!  The idea of what happened is terrifying but the presentation of the facts in the book is more "just the facts" then anything.

You two are such teases...  I can't get to everything.  I would enjoy a book club that gives book reports on different books not necessarily everyone reading the same novel.

My life is so scattered right now and it seems my stack of books is reflecting it as well.  /LOL

Well, we could do that without even calling it a club. We could post such book reports here, perhaps more like a synopsis, giving away the ending of novels, or a summary of nonfiction. What do you think?

I'm going to the play sometime in 2017. I don't know if I should read the story or not?

Opinions would be appreciated.

Quinn - I would enjoy that immensely.
