Star Trek books - so current

Starting to enjoy the Star Trek series of books. We started out with a Voyager entry and now I'm in TOS (The Original Series) with Kirk and Bones. The Patrian Transgression (1994) by Simon Hawke. It's off to great start.
Like the series, it appears to parallel our current issues we've been having around here for a while.

Mosaic (Star Trek, Voyager) was a great romp through Janeway's life. Having seen the television series, this was a great introduction to the novels and her character. My daughter thinks it's pretty cool that a scientist is a captain of a spaceship and laughed that she was forced to learn tennis. I even just found myself using some of Jerry Taylor's insights If everything you do is easy, how would you ever learn or grow? when talking about planning after school activities.

These Star Trek books are readily available everywhere. We find them at the used book stores, and hey look: for one penny at

Dead and Gone - Sookie

Oh, Sookie. What sort of trouble are we heading for? The reviews are not looking great!

Will this be our first e-book on the iPad? Or will we patiently wait in line with 500 people over at The Paperback Book Swap? (It's usually not a very long wait...) - Book Club to Swap, Trade & Exchange Books for Free.

When the Weres and shifters finally come out, the residents of Bon Temps, Louisiana, must deal with the violent aftermath. But a far greater danger threatens. A race of unhuman beings--older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves--is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too-human pawn in their battle.

FileMaker Pro goes up to Eleven!

If you know me at all, you know I'm really fond of FileMaker. Stop laughing. I realize how big of an understatement this is. Now I have a few MORE goals this year to strive towards.
