Well it's been a while since I posted, because it had been a while since I'd read a book.  I'm hard pressed to even count this one (Red River), not because it wasn't good (it was) but because it's barely a novel.  A tiny Western, really a screenplay (you can't read it without hearing/seeing John Wayne delivering the Dunson lines), I polished this one off in about 2 hours while on jury duty, waiting to see if I would be called to appear in a jury pool.
I wasn't called, but the two hours with Red River on a Tuesday morning were great.  Fun book, really enjoy this old Westerns.
