Are you embarrassed Frank? do you watch True Blood behind closed doors too? I quite like Charlaine Harris's stuff. I prefer the Lily Bard series, but Sookie is good too. (Lily shows up in a couple of the Sookie books for a brief appearance)

We do watch True Blood. It is less.. umm.. silly than the books.

I started Dead in the Family this morning.

I'll finish The Mote In God's Eye tonight and have a brand new Tami Hoag on deck called Secrets Of The Grave.

You have GOT to be kidding me. You have to take a pretty big leap out of reality no matter whether you're reading or watching these. I'd say either one is a bit on the fluffy but fun side.

I've read them all and loved them. They are a bit, um, unusual but in a way that really grabbed my curiosity. Sadly Stieg Larsson died before he wrote any more. Rats! I enjoyed his writing.

I just finished Water for Elephants and I have to say it's the best book I've read in the last 15 years or so and I've read lots of books. Usually 3+ per week.

I loved the story and, when I finished the book, I must've cried for 15 minutes it was so beautiful. What a story!! Now I HAVE to see the movie.

Fluffy.. good word. I think the books are more fluffy than the series (not counting last season which stunk). The only thing that made last season worthwhile was "If you want her you have to go through me bloodsucker"

I started rereading The Mystery of Ireta by Anne McCaffrey (a double book of Dinosaur Planet and Dinosaur Planet Survivors).

I'm still only half way through Water For Elephants. It's good, but not my usual kind of book.

I tried Water For Elephants and just couldn't get into the story...I guess there weren't enough spaceships in the story Shrek loved the book.
