    Book Reading......
    Book No. 13 is in the history books.
    I just finished reading Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett. It's the next in the Disc World series.

    I was a little disappointed in this book. It felt disjointed to me until about the last 70 pages or so. It wrapped up really well, but I don't know if was reading "too fast", or if it was that disjointed for me. I kind of felt lost off and on. But like I said the last 70 or so pages were really good.
    You would think it would happen just the opposite. That a book would lose track of things and it went. lol...

    1. Schulz and Peanuts by David Michaelis
    2. The Avengers: Too Many Targets by John Peel and Dave Rogers

Uneven until 70 pages left? I'd probably have dropped it halfway through.... Actually, there was a book by Michael Crichton (I think) called "Flightline" that was the same way. Didn't start to pick up / get interesting until about 1/2 inch worth of pages left.

This one felt like it was starting with one story and the verged off another direction to only wrap it all up at the end.

Actually, it was entitled "Airframe". I knew something didn't sound right...
