i really, really enjoyed that book. hope they don't make the movie to cutesy. i grew up in that environment and know how insidious it was.

not so much enjoying the book i am reading right now "eight days to live" iris Johanson. will finish but it is not gripping.

I'm about halfway through Salt - took a break to read After Effects, a Detective Inspector Sloan mystery by Catherine Aird. From the dust jacket: "...for those who like their prodecurals on the lighthearted side."

Dog Walks Man: A Six Legged Odessey by John Zeaman.

I'm surprised how wonderfully funny and quite unexpected it is. But, then again, I love dogs so

I'm reading Deluge which is book #3 of the Petaybee series by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. I read the series a long time ago, but only found book 3 when I made my last order with Abe Books.

I ordered book 1 and 2 a couple of days ago. Great order, I got 7 books for under $12!
