    I had set the first of the Stephen King trilogy "Mr. Mercedes" aside for a few weeks. Picked it back up and finished it in one day, read the second in the series "Finders Keepers" in a day, and I'm now halfway through the finale, "End Of Watch". I expect to finish it tonight.

    They are different than most of King's work, in that there's more "who-done-it/who's-gonna-do-it" than creepy stuff.....except for the last one. They're worth the read.

    "Presstitutes" - Version 1.7 (01/2020) By: Udo Ulfkotte (1961-2017)

    "The eagerly awaited English edition of "Bought Journalists" was suppressed for three years under the title "Journalists for Hire" -- and still got 24 five-star-only Amazon reviews from would-be readers. 18 months on the bestseller list in Germany. Now it's finally here!

    "Ever get the feeling the media tries to manipulate or lie to you? You have plenty of company! And you are right -- the facts are in. A world-class media insider has blown the whistle on what really goes on inside the media industry."

    "You will gain a whole new perspective on media reports. A good idea of how much you can believe the news on TV or the radio: almost nothing. Ulfkotte dissects the German media establishment, which media outlets are owned by political parties, the journalists that are under their influence, and what keeps them there. You will see how whole countries are manipulated – and who is pulling the strings and why. Here is the bad news about the news: our idea of a free press with a broad spectrum of opinion is pure fantasy. Very often, what is called the "news" is simply brainwashing."


    You will read & set the book aside & go Umm many times, before finishing, & wonder about the American media. o_O

    I have just about all of O'Rourke's books. He's funny as hell.

    Right now I'm about half way through a compilation of H.P Lovecraft's short stories.

    Looked those up in our local library after you mentioned it, and found they have the whole series. Just finished the first book in the series, Leviathan Wakes, and started the second Calibans War. Easy, fast, reading and quite entertaining. "Space Opera". I like.
