    Just ordered the Kindle edition of Robert Heinlein's Glory Road.

    It's one I always wanted to read, but never seemed to run across, back in the "old days" when I used to frequent book stores.

    Just picked it up on Amazon, along with a free Audible version, so now I've got no excuse. If I get too lazy, or my eyes get too tired to do it the old fashioned way and read it myself, I can let this little device from Hell read it to me.


    By the way, the only other book I currently have on my tablet ( for reading with the Kindle app ) is The Emotional Craft of Fiction: How to write the story beneath the surface, by Donald Maass. It concerns writing emotion into your characters.

    Haven't gotten very far through it, but it seems worth the few bucks I paid for it.

    Anyway, that's my reading list for now. ( Other than the forums here, of course. )

    Edit: Currently listening to the audio version of Glory Road. Was skeptical, but must say that I'm enjoying it in spite of my reservations. It's narrated by Bronson Pinchot, and although his "feminine" voice leaves a bit to be desired, he's doing an admirable job of voice acting. Would I prefer a full, multi-gendered cast? Yes. However, this is the next best thing, and still quite acceptable.

    Leave it be and it won't bother you.
    Screw with it, and it'll eat you alive.

    Get The Truth. It's from the same authors who wrote Spy The Lie.

    Whereas Spy The Lie was about the various tricks and methods you can use to determine whether or not someone is lying to you, Get The Truth focuses on how to get someone to tell you the truth.

    If you're writing mystery, or if any part of your story involves a character trying to ferret out the truth from someone, these books are very informative.
    I write because if I did anything else with the ideas in my head, I'd go to prison.
