This Week's Finds

Lots of new and exciting stuff this week! (Or at least I think so).

And because I've been swamped lately, I'll just post a list of the titles, without covers. Maybe I can go back and post the covers I have; but in the mean time, you can find them if you want.

Odyssey of the Apocalypse - Elizabeth MacDonald Burrows
Published in 1994, this large hardcover book deals with something mentioned in the best-seller, The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown: A new, in-depth look at John's Apocalypse. It's not the end of the world, just the awakening of Humanity's capabilities.

This Week's Finds

Last week I got a bunch of books, and was really busy. And this week I don't work at the library, so I'm kind of splitting it as This Week's and Last Week's finds. I apologize in advance for the long post.
Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton

This Week's Finds

A very busy week. So much so that I am delivering this Find late; even though it says Sunday, I'm typing the rest of this post on the following Wednesday.

Legacy of Ashes: History of the CIA by Tim Weiner

Morning Write - 4

Been writing this one in a few consecutive mornings. Was playing around with the length and messages, as well as the parallel scenes. Didn't want to make this part too long, so I kind of hurried it up.

This is part of a series (which I'm half-naming Deadlocked for the moment. I might stick with the title). I suggest you read the first part as well as the second to keep up-to-date; although, this one can almost stand on its own. You decide.
A Retelling
Earnest was always a very likable fellow. Whenever he’d attend a party or just chat among friends at a wi-fi coffee shop, people always relaxed and listened to him. He’d tell stories that captivated people, and kept them coming back for more. If he ever couldn’t keep a story going, he’d always shrug his shoulders and say, “That’s all for today.” Most people understood, and didn't push him farther.
