chrissie hynde, the lead singer of the pretenders, wrote this song in cuba, together with her young scottish(?) lover/singer, after seeing the swedish vampire movie, let the right one in, about two years ago. i don't know if this video was used in the movie trailer. pretty intense song, as much about crissie's fresh new love affair as it is about this dark vampire movie.

I just started "The Baritone wore Chiffon" by Mark Schweizer. I read his first "The Alto wore Tweed" and really enjoyed it so got the next in the series. It's kind of light reading which I needed after the Clark family saga. The main character is a "character"! Chief of Police in a rural town along with being the Episcopal Church organist and choir director and wannabe writer. He writes outlandish stories ala Raymond Chandler that he adds to the choir folders. There's always a mystery for the detective side of him while the church side is busy with all the intricacies of church. Funny stuff! Lots of classical music references also.

Another Baldacci fan here. I finished Absolute Power and am already half way through The Whole Truth. I've got another two on the way, as well.

I have one chapter left of The Innocent, I believe I am avoiding it because I don't want it to end.

parting with a good book is much like having to say goodbye to a friend who is moving away, permanently. it's not quite death, but....

b&n is advertising ebooks for $6.99--cook books, some really good ones, with many well-known chefs. fifty titles in all. can kindle people read nook books as readily as i can buy and read kindle ebooks?

I am reading M.C. Beaton's book - Hiss and Hers, the lastest Agatha Raisin mystery. Love all of her books.

I just finished A Spoonful of Poison -- the one about the LSD-spiked jam. I didn't recognize having read it before when I brought it home from the library, but it had been quite a while ago and she was fun all over again. I'm happy to hear there's a new one to read.

I was on the waiting list at the library for about two months for Hiss and Hers and was glad to finally get it. When I am done reading this I am going to reread The Deadly Dance , another Agatha Reisin mystery. Poor Agatha she is having such a hard time growing older.

Yes, but at least she has good legs and glossy hair.
