Kinda sounds like jail bait.
It brings to mind one of the favorite locations in the series 'Cluck in a Bucket'.  Stephanie inadvertently burned down the restaurant at one point while working the drive through window. :shock: That was in either 'Twelve Sharp' or 'Lean Mean Thirteen'.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy (author of No Country for Old Men)

Best book I've read in some time.

Bilbo's a midsummer's night mare review, the longest thing, other than purchase orders, I've read in a long time, and well worth the read!

I just finished Finger Lickin' Fifteen! It arrived yesterday and I just couldn't put it down once I got started. I laughed so hard I cried a couple times (and caught some strange looks for other people at the bus stop) I LOVE STEPHANIE PLUM!

Stephanie is the main character. Janet Evanovich is the author of the series.

I jsut started Dan Brown's new book 'Missing symbol'. WOW! It's really great right from the beginning. It's one of those books you can't put down. And a lot of the symbols and mysticism it talks about ir real stuff. Great book.

My most recent helpings of mental cholesterol:

 

The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to follow the Bible as Literally as Possible, by A.J. Jacobs-  Meh.  Reads less like a memoir than a three hundred page magazine article.  A few interesting historical/informational insights, but it rarely scratches beyond the surface.  The author is nowhere near as witty as he seems to want the reader to think he is, and in fact comes off as quite a tool at times (not sure what else to call his annoying habit of halting the narration to brag about his book deal every couple of chapters). 


Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy- Dense, difficult, demanding.  Not for the squeamish.  Some of the most magnificent prose I've ever encountered, steeped in Gnostic allegory and unrelenting nihilism, and featuring an antagonist who makes No Country for Old Men's Anton Chigurh look like a cub scout by comparison (made all the more terrifying by the fact that he's based on a real person).  Worth a look if you've got ample time to dissect subtext, a strong stomach, and a Spanish dictionary.


Kick-Ass by Mark Millar & John Romita, Jr.- Dumb as hell.  But fun (in a "lock your brain in the closet for a couple hours" sort of way).  Here's hoping the movie expounds on the stuff that works and fixes the stuff that doesn't.

 
My Name is Will: A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare by Jess Winfield- Unless you're holding a baby or a pressure-sensitive bomb detonator, drop what you're doing and read this book!  Juxtaposes the story of a lazy, dope-addled literary grad student in the mid 80's with an eerily similar year in the life of 18-year-old William Shakespeare.  The contemporary story isn't bad (although the author's political chest-beating and more-than-tacit endorsement of recreational drugs can get a little annoying at times), but the chapters set in 1582 are worth the price of admission and then some.  Thoroughly researched, bawdy as hell, featuring some downright delicious wordplay and more *wink/nudge* references to the Bard's works than you can shake a spear at.  This Winfield guy has the spirit of a Lexxian in him!
