    So many books, so little time. I found a Mike Lawson book in an Ollie’s or a 2nd and Charles. Those are the only two places I purchase books other than online. Well, occasionally, I may grab one from Barnes and Nobles or BAM. But I’ve read almost every Grisham book and I was looking for something different. I did find Glenn Meade and his book Snow Wolf was great, but I haven’t really dug into any of his others, although I did purchase The Last Witness. Anyway, I picked up House Odds and started reading. I haven’t put it down yet and I can’t wait to get into his next one (Mike Lawson) that is. I don’t even have one yet, but I’m thinking about either getting his first one or House Rules. Being a retired Navy guy and a current Navy civilian, maybe there’s a connection. Whether or not, I’m still looking forward to the next read!
