What I’m Reading: Dark Days: A Memoir by D. Randall Blythe

You’ll hear more about this book, which I am around half-way through with at the time I publish this post. I am a bit of a lamb of god fan with their music growing on me more of late than earlier. Go heavy metal!

This book is about Mr. Blythe getting locked up in a Czeck prison in Prague called Pankrác Prison. His band landed there after not playing a Czech show in two years, after which he was arrested in customs for something similar to manslaughter for the death of a fan ( at the last concert they played two years earlier ). It’s a lengthy book @ 496 pages. Seems like forever in a day since I read a decent non-fiction book and this one is moving right along for me and so far a very entertaining read. More details soon.

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.

What I’m Reading: Borderless by Eliot Peper

Ah, the joys of the internet when you go book shopping on a whim, click ‘Add to Wishlist’ on book #2 in a series and that’s what the family is working off of for Christmas gifts. A cascadial error of sorts. No mind, because this looks like a espionage book / series I can get into with style!

What I’m Reading: Flow My Tears, the Police Man Said by Philip K. Dick

It’s no secret, Colin ( from Tales From the Neon Beach blog ) and I are working on a duel review of Flow My Tears, the Police Man Said by Philip K. Dick and I just got a chance to dig my claws into the story, in which an acclaimed TV star wakes up in a different reality where he is a normal person. Like most other books by Philip K. Dick, it reads easy, but presents complex problems which fits my reading bill just great, at least so far. I won’t go into any more details about the book ( in which it seems like there is a lot of things to talk about ), so be on the look out for that duel review, on Tales from the Neon Beach, coming ( not very ) soon.

“Fear can make you do more wrong than hate or jealousy. If you’re afraid you don’t commit yourself to life completely; fear makes you always, always hold something back. You shouldn’t be alone. It’s killing you; it’s undermining you. All the time, every day, you should be somewhere with people.”
― Philip K. Dick, Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said

I’m also reading 10 Years of Darkness by Kristen Chambers and Viktor H. Strangewayes, in which I started on the eBook, but that won’t last long because I gratefully received a hard copy with a nice, signed note attached, then I will feature this book next week on What I’m Reading, so you may get a good look at it, the formatting, etc.

Guys and gals, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley.
