Interesting yet enlightening conversation last night with my kids.

Dragonlance_booksElizabeth wasn’t feeling well after dinner while watching, “Now You See Me” movie. She went to bed afterwards but the kids and I were going to watch “The Hobbit” which I had DVR’d earlier. I told them I had to return the movies we rented, “Now You See Me” and “The Conjuring.”

OMG – the Conjuring…I’m about five pounds lighter cuz is scared you know what outta me. 

While I was out, Joaquin was busy updating Emma on the Lord of The Ring trilogy since she had never seen them. Joaquin and I were big fans of the trilogy so he was the right person to get Emma up to speed. As we watched the movie, we started talking to each other about how the movie versions of the stories wouldn’t be as true to the books.

See, my kiddos read a lot.

Finally get to start reading my book

by on Oct.20, 2009, under Books

I’ve been a big fan of Vince Flynn for some time now and tonight, I finally get to start reading my book Pursuit of Honor.

I know it sounds funny but to me nothing beats sitting down, away from the computer, iPhone or TV and just let a writer entertain you with a good book.

I got turned on to these types of political thrillers when my buddy Al introduced me to Tom Clancy so many years back. I kind of got lost in the political mess in his books and another friend told me of this up and coming writer, Vince Flynn.

I started to read his books way back and it seems this guy likes to put out a book every year. So I wait, buy it, then read it. He’s got a very interesting clandestine operative named Mitch Rapp. This guy doesn’t mess around when it comes to taking our terrorists for the US Counter Terrorist Unit. Guess that’s why I didn’t get hooked on the Kiefer Sutherland 24 show – I was already reading it.

Tonight I get to start reading and I hope this is a good one. He’s got his own website and other books but the one I would reccomend is Transfer of Power. Go find it at your local used bookstore.
