LOL...I thought that sounded familiar. You were impressively quick on those credits though.

You got towel racks from Amazon? I'm reading Dust to Dust by Tammy Hoag, I don't like it, I think she is a terrible writer, but someone gave it to me so I feel compelled to finish it.

I'm the queen of odd bathrooms with no shelves actually, Tammy.

I could WRITE A BOOK! (see me keeping on topic here)

Did Tammy Hoag write The Thin Red Line?

LOL to reading the credits quickly. That really WAS kinda amazing, wasn't it.

Me? Get motion sickness? Heck no.

I was taken off that ride at Six Flags in a wheelchair simply for shock value.

My motto is so many books so little time. I happen to love Tammi Hoag, but then again other than Hannibal, which I ahsolutely hated but read anyway, because it was there, love Thomas Harris. Maybe I should change my nick to warped.

I've just finished reading the Perfect Victim by Linda Castillo, it was okay, sort of to much romance in it. In honor of the death of one of my favorite authors, Chiam Potok I've reread all of his books. The Chosen, The Promise, My Name is Asher Lev, In The Beginning, Wanderings, The Book of Lights, Davita's Harp, The Gift of Asher Lev and I Am The Clay. All outstanding.

Diana Gabaldon is also one of my favorites. I'm a mystery fan too, like tupi

Hi hi booklovers!

All I did was take a wee little break from painting the dining room ceiling. I began reading </IU>Loves Music, Loves to Dance </IU> by Mary Higgins Clark.

The ceiling remains incomplete, but I finished the book! Dang it was good!
That's the first book I've read by MHC and it was as suspenseful as promised! I guessed the wrong guy all along.

I think I'd better avoid the library until that dining room is painted.

Hi anniejoan. You have paint in your hair!

I have those first three Chiam Potok books you mentioned Sabra. I loved them.

lol Cod! And all over my arms and hands. BUT......I was very good today. Returned the Library book without getting another one out and did more painting when I got home from work.

We have a brand new library...it's gorgeous and huge! I love it! But...I have a bookcase full of books so I'm gonna alternate between reading a library book and reading one of my own.

Next on my list: Who Will Cry When You Die? by Robin S. Sharma. He's the author who wrote The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. Has anyone read him?

I have not read Sharma. And I don't know what it is about me and libraries, but I don't like them. ME, an English major and writer. I remember that as a child, I could sit all day in the basements children's section of our town's library and pour over drawings of fairies and stories of talking willow trees. But now, I nearly hyperventilate in a library. Give me a big bookstore.

Today, Bookies chose Alice Sebold's novel "The Lovely Bones" as their next read. So, here I go--raped and murdered 14-year-old watches her family from heaven. Alas.
