There is a computer room with bookshelves lining one wall. When I moved in nearly 3 years ago, there were only a few books. It's grown quite a bit since then. Recently I cleaned out my bookcase of books I had read and moved them there to make room for more. You just take any you're interested in, keep them as long as you like. No checkout or anything like that.

I'm just glad to be able to make room on my bookshelves, and pass them along to other readers.

I can tell already that I will enjoy all three of the trilogy. It will be interesting to see the movie but I already know I will enjoy the books more.

I got Patrick Lee's The Breach in the mail yesterday. This is my kind of sci-fi. I'm already over 1/3 of the way through.

trying kathy reichs on for size. i think it's going to be a good fit. her death du jour is the book i'm reading right now. she has written 16 crime novels to choose from. she seems to be something of a modern day patricia cornwell of scarpetta fame. so far, i like her style of writing....

it's always a plus when an author you like has a good sized reservoir of work to return to. :)

Buongiorno,

I take great enjoyment in my Friday and Sunday newspaper no matter, where I am or which language it is in, as I can read in 6 languages ... Speak 5. The 6th, is a toughy and would have to take an intensive course ...

The weekend edition of the Apulia - Puglia Daily Friday Newspaper.

Ciao.
Margi.

Are the characters much like those in the TV series?
