If you do find it, let us know the URL.

I just finished the much acclaimed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

Holy cow, what a ride! It had me from the start to the very last page. It's been a very long time since I've been so wrapped up in a book, and it's like nothing I've ever read before. To tell anything about it would be a disservice. All I can say, is read it!!

I'm reading Pandora's Daughter by Iris Johansen. I guess I'll finish it.

Wow, sounds heavy. Haven't been able to get into serious since I broke the hip. Did read one about love and elephants (it was OK) and one food memoir which genre I usually love, but wasn't crazy about it. Both were library books (most my reading is), so I don't have the titles/authors at my finger tips. The gal who wrote it seemed very wrapped up in herself and name-dropping. But maybe it was just my attitude; with the injury I was looking for escapism and frivolous!

Right now I'm reading Garment of Shadows by Laurie R. King, and the latest book by McCall Smith (one is upstairs by the bed, the other where I sit during the day, still avoid bringing things down the stairs!). Both are just my level at this time.

"How to Survive..." is a survivalist resource...I have a fetish for end of the world stories and thought this would be a good research item. It is. It's hard to say I enjoyed it, let's say I was not disappointed.

I'm reading Vernor Vinge's The Children Of The Sky. Can't say how much I like it yet. It's in the same universe as A Fire Upon The Deep.

I just read Outdoor Life's "The Ultimate Survival Manual", about surviving all sorts of stuff like animal attacks, tsunamis, forest fires, getting lost at sea, etc. A fun read, and some good info!
