I just finished Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward. What a hoot. When I went to the library last week I bought only "light" mysteries, but this was unexpected! Fun.

Glass Castle is a great book, well written, but sad that is it true.

well, my nook reader crapped out, and right in the middle of rocker patti smith's memoir, just kids, that i was soo into reading. bummer. i've had this nook for what, all of three or four months, now....i'm testing the battery first before b&n will take any action to provide me with a new reader. hey, just maybe restarting the battery will work for me! i'm such a pessimist. if anything ever turns out right for me in my world, i'm wildly, ecstatically surprised and full of unimaginable glee!! but that won't happen in this case--i just know it....

I have 3 books going. "The Catcher in The Rye". I don't see where it is so great. I can't get pasted chapter 2. Janet Evanovich " Sizzling Sixteen". I keep getting preoccupied. "No Angel" My Harrowing Undercover in the Hells Angles. It is slow., Interesting though.

Since I'm always enthused by both film & literature concerning the good old "Cosa Nostra", I just recently began Underboss - Sammy "The Bull" Gravano's Story of Life In The Mafia by Peter Maas. So far it's interesting, but since it's true & not a novel, can be a little confusing at times with all the different names tossed around. Thank God there won't be a quiz when I finish - lol!

i'm happy to report that i was wrong (again!), and my nook came back to life! :) the battery just needed a little out-of-body experience for a while, but is now reconnected, recharged, and back on the job. i am happily back to reading my patti smith book and all is well. you know, i may be a real debbie downer, but i rarely suffer from letdowns involving unmet expectations, and once in a while, like today, i am pleasanty surprised by good news....:):)
