    I'm at 51. I'm curious to see how much over that I can get, although with my hours the next few weeks, there'll be lots less time for reading. I need to copy down my goodreads to list the books. I should have been keeping up with that here. Ah, well. At least I hit my goal. If I could keep from getting sidetracked, I'd have finished it ages ago.

    Bandits, by Elmore Leonard

    I started reading this one at the same time as "Maximum Bob" and set it aside when the latter seemed far more interesting. But then I went back to Bandits and really liked it.

    Reluctant assistant funeral director Jack works for his brother in law and is tasked with going to pick up a body from the leper colony down the road, a colony run by nuns. When he gets there, he realizes two things: (1) the body he's picking up belongs to an attractive Nicaraguan young woman, and she's very much alive and (2) she's been sequestered out of Nicaragua by an attractive nun who's trying to get the young woman away from a vengeful colonel in the Nicaraguan contras.

    The nun and Jack gravitate towards and away from each other while trying to outrun the colonel's men. The colonel is in fact in the U.S., raising money for the Contras, and word on the street is that he already has close to 5 million, thanks in part to a letter from Ronald Reagan that opens many fundraising doors.

    The nun, Jack, and a number of Jack's friends hatch a plan to steal the 5 million and send it to where it belongs... half to a hospital in Nicaragua, half into their own pockets.

    Set in New Orleans, the plot is really good, forward moving, and filled with unexpected twists and unexpected responses from the myriad characters that come to populate the story.

    I think this is the novel of Elmore Leonard's that I've enjoyed the most. 5 out of 5 stars.

    Maximum Bob by Elmore Leonard

    This has to be one of the catchiest starts to a novel that I've ever read -- and extremely funny. Characters that stand out for the unexpected things they say and do, and a very intriguing plotline from the get go: "Maximum Bob" is a judge known for throwing maximum sentences at the people showing up in his court... and being completely inappropriate with the women who work in and around the court system. He's trying to get rid of his wife and makes a deal with one of his court cases that if he brings a (dead) alligator over to his (the judge's) house, he'll reduce the sentence. The alligator is meant to scare his wife away, but (1) the alligator arrives live and (2) now all the cops think someone is trying to kill Maximum Bob and set up extensive surveillance around him, annoying him no end.

    Unfortunately, I think there's only room for one truly unlikable character in this book--the judge. When a former felon enters the story, intent on really killing the judge, that guy is so unlikable too that it's hard to root for one person or the other.

    An entertaining story, but I started to feel slimed by all the actions and bigoted thoughts of the primary characters, and although I finished reading the novel, it felt like work towards the end.

    Probably 3 stars out of 5 for me.

    October update! As of yesterday, I've read 40 books so far, with a few in progress. I think that puts me on track for 50 by the end of the year, but I can't slow down!
