I read a book!

I'm beat. See, I was up well past 2 am finishing my book - Term Limits by Vince Flynn. I just couldn't put the damn thing down.

A couple of months back I had heard a radio interview with Flynn and he said he was a consultant on "24". Right then I knew I had to read his books. Term Limits is his debut and I quite enjoyed it. Very exciting and probably one of the most politically conservative books I've ever read (the plot centers on a group of ex-SEALs upset with government waste and hypocrisy so they try to get the President to change the system). One book down, six to go.

Next, I'll be taking a break from Flynn to read either Chris Elliott's The Shroud of the Thwacker or Tom Robbins' Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Probably the former.

Sweetie it's Tom Robbins, not Tim Robbins! :)

Ha! Thanks. Nice catch. My brother got the book for me a while back - he's a huge fan of that author.

So, it's not a novelization of Nothing to Lose? Whew!

tim robbins would make sense as a balance though.

Probably. But I doubt I'd make it through a whole book of his.
