    Started reading "Not Enough Faith To Be An Athiest". Family member suggested it, something about questioning evolution.

    Thanks for the offer. I first read it when it was published under his pseudonym "Ian Stuart".
    When it was published again under his real name, I bought it again. I got into it and thought it sounded very familiar.
    That's when I learned he had published a couple of books using the name Ian Stuart.

    I was going to try to find his non-fiction book Captain Cook.

    A Gentleman In Moscow, by Amor Towles. I can't remember a book I've enjoyed more in quite some time.

    Re: Curios George...I had the opportunity to look at one of them again a while back. Wow, not nearly as exciting as I remember. Beat the heck out of the Dick an Jane series, though. "See Dick, see Dick run." Pretty heady stuff.

    I read the early ones. Enjoyed first half dozen or so. Good story teller, not very good writer. Modern version of dime store novels. Cheap quick entertainment. Never felt I got cheated out of my buck or hour time to read.

    He was a very poor writer in the beginning, but a great storyteller. His writing is still quirky but is a lot better, (there are like 76 LLRs now). He has also done a few other series like Intended Consequences, Mean Streets and Sex, guns and rock and roll. Still good quick entertainment. He's on my auto buy list. Just plain like his stuff.

    Well, I have just about all of the Jack Reacher paperback books, looking to trade them for other books.

    Primarily interested in quality detective stories, I would like to get a collection of Raymond Chandler, Patterson's Alex Cross, maybe some decent SiFi (I have already read all of Asimov, Heinlein, Herbert, Anderson, etc.), looking for recent authors of quality reading.

    PM me, can meet in NoCO area almost anytime.

    Thanks for looking.
