They'd see your request about a tablet being withheld for a few days as a "File 13" action. O:)

Back in the day, as some might remember, the NSA was so hush-hush that it was known by some as "No Such Agency." In retrospect, it's interesting that a few organizations that "officially" didn't exist back then have become notoriously present.  roll

Yes, now this is the "Official" #! Crunchgang - previously it was just a shadowy organisation in a Dan Brown novel

As a matter of fact ... I just finished two of my birthday presents:

  1. The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown

  2. The Janson Directive - Robert Ludlum -AWESOME!!!!

and I stopped at Chapter 4 of Digital Fortress (Dan Brown) last night at 01:00.  I hope it's better than The Lost Symbol.

still have a few to go:

  1. The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum

    1. First movie my wife and I saw together - figured I'd finally buy the book!

  2. The Prometheus Deception - Robert Ludlum

  3. Dead or Alive - Tom Clancy, and

  4. Hinto's Obit - New York Times  lol  lol

@ hinto - I can be just as bad!  wink

Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

I can't bear Clancy and Brown, both very poor writers in my not-so-humble opinion. They can't hold a candle to Lee Child and his Jack Reacher books!

BTW I'm having a neuro-psychological baseline assessment on Friday morning, then I'm going sailing for the weekend. I'll let you know how it all goes, if I remember  big_smile

Always on the lookout for good authors ... tough finding English books here.  Never heard of Lee Child or his Jack Reacher before.

Just bookmarked his site http://www.leechild.com/ and will definitely go looking to see if I can find any of his books. And I like this!.

Thanks damo!

a neuro- what?

EDIT:  Lee Child: Jack Reacher - I like the guy already!!!

Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

PSI-Man by Peter David is cool.

And of course, since we are over the hill, Scalzi's Old Man's War series is excellent.

...and if you want "old school", The Messiah Stone by Martin Caidin. (anything by Caidin is good)

Nope. I'm reading a Tolstoy novel. Since early May!

Clancy is pretty good if you read real Clancy novels. Most of them have been ghost written for some time, now.

Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

@ hinto

I'll add those to my list of books to find as well.  Thanks.
OH!!  ... KUDOS for the links!

@ ratcheer

How long is really long?

Clancy passed away in Oct of last year, he's had co-authors for a few years before that ... and there certainly is a difference in writing style.  {opinion}

Sadly Ludlum passed away as well.  I've been reading his books for 30+ years.  Will miss him.

Just found: Jason Bourne is really a grape! lol lol

Clancy's non-fictional books are great as well.

Re: The Official #! Over-the-Hill-CrunchGang Thread

@Sector11: Have you read any detective stories by Canadian author Louise Penny. As a Canadian, you may enjoy her novels featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. There's much about the differences (or are they) between the English (les Anglais) and the Québécois. The action takes place in and around Montreal, especially in the Eastern Townships. Start with Still Life and work your way forward. If you're familar with the area, you'll like the books even more. (Disclaimer: My family used to vacation during the summer at Lake Carmi, VT, just a couple of klicks from the U.S./Canadian border. We sometimes went for drives to Montreal or to Sherbrooke. It's been close to 60 years, but I still remember my father driving down dusty dirt roads past villages that resembled somewhat Penny's fictious Three Pines.) smile

@Ratcheer: First Gentoo and now Tolstoy. You either love challenges, or ....? I keep a notebook when reading Russian novels, mainly to keep track of all the characters' nicknames. It seems each character has several, depending on whether friend, family, or whatever.  As one person I knew once commented about Russian novels, "Lots of people in lots of pages." yikes

I can't say for a printed copy, but it is almost 2,500 pages on my ereader version. The novel is broken into eight "books" of about 30 chapters, each. I am now several chapters in to the fifth "book".
