Blood Hollow by William Kent Krueger

Next in the Cork O'Connor mystery series.  A decent entry and good enough for me to try the next one.

Bad Religion by Ross Douthat

Against the notion that our country is becoming increasingly secular, Douthat advances the thesis that it is as religious as ever - only that religion is no longer orthodox Christianity but a variety of Christian heresies. These heresies dispense with the tensions and demands of the traditional faith and, usually, replace it with some sort of self-affirming vacuity. There's a lot more to it than that. An insightful read.

The Royal Wulff Murders by Keith McCafferty

Good mystery novel set in the West and involving trout fishing. The "Royal Wulff" is a fishing lure.

Something Other than God by Jennifer Fulwiler

A riveting conversation story - could hardly put it down.

Paradise Valley by C.J. Box

I haven't been keeping up this blog lately... but I did just finish C.J.Box's latest, featuring Cassie Dewell and a final showdown with the Lizard King. Very good.

Vicious Circle by C.J. Box

The latest in the Joe Pickett series. This is essentially a coda to the prior book in the series, and resolves the storyline with the Cates family.

Methodical Realism by Etienne Gilson

A short but brilliant work on realist philosophy and its fundamental differences from idealism. I've been meaning to read it for years.
