    DisneyFreak have you read Stieg Larsson yet? His three book series is a great summer read.

    No. He's from Sweden. He's dead actually. Died young as a result of a cardiac illness. It's a shame there will be no more from him.

    Give him a search. I think you might like the books! "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is the first in the series...

    Other than that it's more lounging in the pool while reading or sleeping. Starting a new book this weekend since I just finished Tourist Season by Carl Hiaasen.

    He writes environmental thrillers (found in the mystery sections of bookstores) with some humor mixed in. He was born and raised near Ft Lauderdale and so all his books take place in Florida (mostly South Florida).

    His 1993 book Strip Tease was made into a movie in 1996 staring Demi Moore and Burt Reynolds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strip_Tease_(novel) Not the best adaptation.

    Tourist Season was his first solo novel which I just finished and I found it a very easy and excellent read.

    He also wrote a non-fiction book in 1998 called Team Rodent: How Disney Devours the World. The book focuses on Disney related enterprises other than film (like WDW) and it's effects on the environment and local culture. From the title it doesn't sound too Disney friendly but you know the old saying.

    Well we'll be round after lunch tomorrow then.

    We're going to Winter Garden tomorrow and Kennedy Space Center on Sunday.
