Let me back up... The SCSon had Skeet practice Saturday. I brought "The Grey Man -Payback-" to read as it's kind of 2 hours of downtime for me. The coach is generally good about letting parents participate but they had a lot of kids and they are the priority. I didn't even bring a shotty... Between a run to gas up the car and a snack run, I got to page 21.
I picked it up again Sunday after a few chores. Here's a few things I remember:
Oh look at that, page 118, hmm already 1/3 the way through.
Page 186, dang halfway...
I set it down to watch TV after page 194. less than a minute later, "wait a minute... what was the title of that next chapter" and picked it up again: P195: "The Shot" The science of long range shooting holds a deep interest for me. I wish I knew more about the practical side and experience with same. Note to self, add to bucket list. Ok, I gotta see how this goes... And kept reading...
P322: Wow... well, it's not yet midnight, may as well see how it ends..
And the 0035 email.. So effectively, I read -Payback- in a single sitting. I haven't done that since the last 500 pages of "Sum of All Fears" [Clancy].
Nicely done, JC. Put me down for a signed copy of book 3. I know you're good for it and you know I am too. Keep it up!
