Mr. Mercedes

I am not a big Stephen King fan. I love his writing. I hate his plots. Supernatural does not do it for me.

I caught a couple of reviews of his latest - Mr. Mercedes - that expressed disappointment at the lack of a supernatural element. So I bought it immediately. And wow.

It's a great read. Best I can figure out, it is not a series, so all characters are expendable which makes the suspense even more suspenseful. I'm actually listening to the audiobook version. I have 3 hours left and it's all I can do not to just devote the next 3 hours to finding out what happens.  But, I want to stretch it out as long as possible.

Plus, I'm hungry. So I think rather than firing it up for more right now, I'm going to go out for breakfast. It's too early for a lot of my favorite places and for that new place I still want to try, so I think I'll go to Luna's in West Seattle.  I can have some breakfast and then hit Trader Joe's and still get home before the baseball game traffic.

So... that's the plan for this morning...
