the fiance and I were in a bookstore looking for the Chronicles of Amber, and this creepy seven foot neckbeard just randomly started talking to us about it and we were all smiling and nodding and trying to get away, but he kept following us giving us information about the series and where the best place in the city to buy it is.
then I bought Thunderhead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, because it's one of the three books of theirs I don't have yet, and I'm craving it so much, I'll even read the books that are written with the peripheral characters.
oh god, Preston and Child.
also read Prince of Fire a bit ago, by I don't remember who. It's one of those books you'd find at a drugstore, though, so it's not hard to find. About an Israeli spy and Palestinian terror group. neat read, but a little ethnocentric. it TRIED to show both sides of the story, but it really ended up being "PALESTINE BAD JEW GOOD" and like, five ill-concieved paragraphs of "but what if.. I'm wrong!?!?!?!" and yeah. not bad, though.
