Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl

Mad Runner 1, January 1, 2013

Read, read, read, slam book down, walk away muttering, waving arms in frustration, walk around block, pick book back up, read, read, read, gasp, argh!, WHAT?, slam book shut while asking self why I am reading this book, mutter, mutter, mutter, read, read, read,repeat several more times, then ... inconceivable! Done. An incredibly frustratingly great book with so many twists and turns an Olympic gymnast would have a tough time pulling the moves off. Read it. Then find a friend and make them read it so you can roll your eyes in silent agreement.

The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey by Candice Millard
The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey

Mad Runner 1, January 1, 2012

Teddy Roosevelt has always been a fascinating person to me. From his early health challenges to the determined youth that struggled to overcome those challenges and into his dispare at the loss of his first wife, he has embodied a lost attribute that makes a larger than life persona human. This book takes on what would seem a selfish last grand hurrah to many contemporaries and shows us the humanity and willingness to give that one of our best presidents held dear to him.
