Definitely a novel approach, Dufus! Now... are you going to tell us how the book ends? Spoiler alert!
Pat Kumicich said…
no, no - don't spoil the ending! Bad, Paula - bad, bad!!
Cheryl P. said…
Another clever photo, Dufus. Grisham's books always have a few secrets in them.

Are you talking to Paula or her dog?
nonamedufus said…
I love Grisham...that's no secret. I read this in February 2011. It didn't disappoint.
Laughing Mom said…
Keep that story under cover.
nonamedufus said…
Really? I could speak volumes about it.
Paula Wooters said…
Down, boy!
nonamedufus said…
Outside of a dog a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
ladyV said…
is it a good book. i used to read his stuff.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I liked it. I've never been disappointed by Grisham.
Linda Medrano said…
Is this new? I love Grishom books.
nonamedufus said…
I read it about 20 months ago. I've since read Calico Joe, a nice little baseball story by him. He's got a new one coming out next week called The Racketeer.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE John Grisham!
nonamedufus said…
He's right up there in my top 5 with Jeffery Archer, Stephen King, Ken Follett and Ian Rankin.
Monique Renae said…
I have never read a John Grisham book but I love reading. Should I pick this one up as a good start?
nonamedufus said…
As good as any. But I really love a couple of his early ones like The Firm, The Client and The Runaway Jury.
Jamie Baker said…
Clients, Firms, Juries and Confessions? Sounds shady.
nonamedufus said…
Well, yeah. They all have to do with lawyers.
Ziva said…
But if someone confesses, then it's not really a secret anymore, is it?
nonamedufus said…
No, not anymore. It's only a secret up until the time it is confessed. But then if you think in terms of a religious confession I suppose it's still a secret. I don't think the priest will share it with the congregation on Sunday. Wouldn't that be cool if he did?
Ziva said…
Dufus, my dear, no priest would ever speak a secret I told him out loud.
nonamedufus said…
I dunno. Been a while since I've seen a priest...or the inside of a church...or had a secret. Shit.
Cheryl said…
So? How does it end? Is there a confession? Was it a false confession? What's the verdict on this book?
nonamedufus said…
I can't give away the ending! You'll have to read the Cliffs Notes.
Cheryl said…
You mean you're going to leaving me hanging?
nonamedufus said…
Lethal injection actually.
nonamedufus said…
Not you...the book!
mike said…
What? 30% off ? I guess someone wanted to keep the sale a secret, because no one told me about it.
nonamedufus said…
It's probably even cheaper now.
Kevin said…
Lol - So, it WAS a secret, but not anymore? :)
Nonamedufus said…
Exactly!
I will remember the title if the book is good! The picture certainly is !
MikeWJ said…
Tell us, NoName, what's your secret? Confess...
nonamedufus said…
Well, thank you. So was the book.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I have many secrets. And I'll never tell. I'd hate to negatively impact my mystique and charm.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
