ARTHUR CHRENKOFF’S NOVEL Night Trains is now out on Kindle. I read it when it first came out and it’s quite good.

Just a note to say how useful your book recommendations are – I’d estimate 20% or more of my fiction purchases result from a mention on InstaPundit (and I do try to go back and buy through your link, even if I don’t buy right away) – an excellent addition to the Amazon recommends method of finding new authors.

In particular, your readers who are authors and who offer cheap or free editions of books, are folks I consistently buy to try something new. Neil Gaiman has a great interview (linked on TigerHawk recently) on this point – he found giving away electronic editions of books boosted his sales. http://tigerhawk.blogspot.com/2012/01/neil-gaiman-on-copyright-and-piracy.html

Keep telling us when you read something good!

The biggest problem is finding time to read something good. I’ve been unusually busy lately and it’s really cut into my leisure reading. On the other hand, I find that if I don’t do enough leisure reading, my efficiency falls off anyway.
