I went shopping yesterday, so I picked up a Karen Slaughter (Fallen) to tide me over.

Fairytale Interrupted - Author: Rosemarie Terenzio

Buongiorno,

Rosemarie Ternzio, was the former Right Arm to then John F. Kennedy Jr. at the George Magazine in the 1990s.

This is a non fiction work by Rosemarie, who covered the inside story behind the life of John F. Kennedy Jr.

Have nice afternoon,
Ciao,
Margaux Cintrano.

I'm reading Charlatan - the nonfiction story of a very successful flim-flam doctor who specialized in goat glands. Set in the early 1900's. I can hardly believe it's nonfiction.

I have moved on to reading A Feast for Crows (#4). I'm somewhat bummed out knowing that I'll hit a hard wall after finishing #5 because the final two volumes are not intended to be out before another few or several years.

I guess I'll wait a few years and then rent the TV series on DVD and see how it translates to television, while I'm waiting for #6 to get published.

i'm sorry, but i feel i must speak out against this author of fifty shades of grey that has somehow managed to go viral in the soft-porn book world in this country. e. l. james, the author of fifty shades of grey, makes stephenie meyer look like a pulizer prize author. if your interest is in erotic literature, there are authors who are true artists of this genre of books. take a look at anais nin, for example. but if anyone has a theory or explanation for the wild popularity of james's abysmally poorly written shades of grey, i'd be most eager to hear it....

theory: could it be the same as for piercings, tatts, 32 oz. drinks, etc., meaning we're dealing with human beans and their usual discriminating tastes, here.
