    I don't buy very many books, but the ones that I have recently have been "Warm Bodies" by Isaac Marion and "H.A.W.X." by David Michaels.

    Tried to order Secrets Of The Sea House by Elisabeth Gifford from local library but the librarian couldn't even find it on Amazon! I checked online later and there it is on Amazon!

    The Death Relic, Chris Kuzneski. Apparently this is his 7th book, first time I've ever come across him. It's a team of two adventurers on different quests.

    Now reading Red Winter by Dan Smith,an excellent thriller set in war-torn 1920s Russia. I read The Child Thief by Smith last year and it was easily the best thriller that I read in '12.
    Added Timelike Infinity by Stephen Baxter (sci-fi) to my Kindle.

    Huhasdfj (AKA 'Chickend Gods' in English) are stones with holes in (I looked it up)

    And we get them here too and was finally motivated to look up HOW the hole gets in the stone:

    They're called Adder Stones in English.

    I'm hoping to find some this fall.
