September Read of the Month

During a Labor Day Weekend trip to Costco (great not even get me started) I stumbled across the book section and picked up The Lion by Nelson DeMille.  I read the earlier title, The Lion's Game thanks to a recommendation from a reader of The Geekly Reader.  I loved the book so much I had to pick up this new sequel.  It did not take long for the book to have my jaw on the floor.  WOW, what a start.  Very exciting.  I look forward to reading this book for September.  Reader Meg, do not worry I still plan to pick up the title by David Foster Wallace you mentioned in a previous comment.  DeMille's book was just staring me in the face and I had no choice to purchase the book.  I will provide a review (without too many spoilers later in the month).

I apologize for the lack of updates, but the Labor Day weekend, combined with the start of the school year has kept me quite busy the past few days.  Now that I am back to work, I hope to be into a better routine.  To all those students out there, be sure to pop into your library next week and pick out a good book to start the school year!   Do not limit yourself to the required reading in your classes. 


  1. I'll look forward to hearing what you think of the DeMille book. I've never read anything by him before.

    Wallace has a voice you have to get used to, so I definitely recommend you start with the cruise ship and state fair essays (essays 3 and 7) in A Supposedly Fun Thing. I'd feel awful if you got burned out on some of the other pieces in there and never made it to the best ones!


  2. Thanks for the advice. I will try it out for October.

    DeMille's books (both The Lion and The Lion's Game) are heavy into police/FBI/anti-terrorism action. They can get a little violent, but they are exciting as well. Great character development. Have a great weekend!
