    I recall you talking about meeting him a while back. Eventually, I will check those books out, too.

    Man, I thought that cover looked familiar, and then I figured out why:

    Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
    Same cover design as the print edition of Red Harvest published by Random House.

    Heh. I had a feeling you would respond to my post based on your love for detective fiction, Major, but didn't know what for. Your response wasn't what I was expecting, but still interesting nonetheless.

    Finally got around to 'Jane Eyre'. I'm only 1/4 the way in, but I can't believe I've slept on this for so long...

    I finished reading an advance copy of the upcoming new Country Store mystery NO GRATER CRIME by Maddie Day. I loved it and my review of the book can be seen via this Goodreads.com link.

    So, I guess it wasn't a book you could shred?

    Finished reading the Library of America's complete novels of Dashiell Hammett. Overall, I think I respect Hammett more than I actually enjoy them, but I did enjoy The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man quite a bit. (I did skip The Glass Key)

    I've started the LOA's first volume dedicated to Raymond Chandler (covering a handful of his short stories and the novels The Big Sleep, Farwell, My Lovely, and The High Window). I am now about halfway through The Big Sleep and Chandler's voice and style are something to behold. I find myself re-reading certain paragraphs because they are so well written.

    "Over the entrance doors, which would have let in a troop of Indian elephants, there was a broad stained-glass panel showing a knight in dark armor rescuing a lady who was tied to a tree and didn't have any clothes on but some very long and convenient hair. The knight had pushed the vizor of his helmet back to be sociable, and he was fiddling with the knots on the ropes that tied the lady to the tree and not getting anywhere. I stood there and thought that if I lived in the house, I would sooner or later have to climb up there and help him. He didn't seem to be really trying."

    Dashiell Hammett is amazing. The novel of The Thin Man is much better and darker than the movie, and I love the final lines of that book.
