    Allright. Finished The Dark Tower series.

    That was something. Terribly bitter, but with a grain of hope. A true epic, as good as it is strange.

    Currently reading "Member of the Family"

    Pretty chilling story of Dianne "Snake" Lake, who was one of Charlie's girls, starting at age 14.

    She had kept quiet and out of the limelight for a long time, but was found in her current life by an investigative journalist recently, so she decided to do an autobiography.

    Its pretty messed up stuff, I'm at the part where they just moved to Spahn Ranch. Luckily, for her, she was able to get out without being imprisoned.

    Just some lighthearted weekend reading for me.
    It’s in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, it’s easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson- true account of two American treasure hunters discovering and exploring a mysterious WW2 German U-boat wreck off New Jersey. I chose the book strictly for research purposes and ended up liking it very much. Not only did I learn a lot of stuff about wreck diving, it was fairly entertaining too. 8.5/10

    Great book! I read that a few years ago. I'm an avid diver, but not like these guys. You don't mess with trimix and saturation diving, or you end up dead.....as the book shows.

    Starting "Thud!" (Terry Pratchett).

    Then I may try something my wife's been going on about "The Raj Quartet"; I'm too lazy to go dig up the individual titles, but it's a four-volume story.

    LOL my recent book release deals with saturation diving in detail (though its more of a plot device than the actual story). I'm also a diver myself but I only made it as far as advanced open water.
