I'm on a time-travelling trip as well - I just finished JEOPARDY IS MY JOB, a Chester Drum book by Stephen Marlowe. Terrible title, but a pretty decent book.
Before that it was THE WATCHMAN by Crais, which was pretty good but had too high a body count for my taste, and before that it was THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PERFECT CRIMES AND IMPOSSIBLE MYSTERIES, edited by Mike Ashley. I'm a sucker for locked room mysteries.
Taking a break from mysteries to read The Terror by Dan Simmons. Two steamships locked in ice in the Arctic Circle with a something slowly killing off their men. Their coal is nearly gone, their tinned food, sold to the Crown by a scam artist, is mostly putrid, and the weather shows no signs of warming up any time soon.
This book is huge, I can't begin to imagine what all is going to happen, but I haven't been disappointed so far and I'm not quite halfway through.
I'v never been able to read more than one book at a time, my mind gets too focused on what's going on in the one. I find swtiching back and forth too distracting.
I'm currently reading Bill Cameron's 'Lost Dog' and getting a kick out of it. Bill's got some interesting phrasing. One, referring to a gopher's nether regions, kind of did me in. Plus, Bill's got a schtick a few chapters in about Suzanne Somer's electro-face tightener. I own one, and it works and I'm glad Bill reminded me I own one because I've been looking at my face lately and I think I ought to dig it out of the closet again.
