All is the same as last week....I am having a bad few weeks of reading.

I am on page 80 of this book, though, and it is good.
 
My book beginnings is taken from TWO DAYS GONE by Randall Silvis:

 

 "The waters of Lake Wilhelm are dark and chilled.  In some places, the lake is deep enough to swallow a house.  In others, a body could lie just beneath the surface, tangles in the morass of weeds and water plants, and remain unseen, just another shadowy form, a captive feast for the catfish and crappie and the monster bass that will nibble at it until the bones fall asunder and bury themselves in the silty floor."
