Now where did that list of books go???

i'm quite astonished at the sheer lyrical beauty of the book recently authored by a good friend of mine. it's probably as well written as anything i've read in the past year. i'm referring to mike romeling's "tale of the taconic mountains". and, in his own words, "hey, did i mention that it goes for less than a gallon of gas today? just sayin.' the book is equal parts mystery, history and paranormal, and the kindle version is a bargain at under four dollars....

At the recommendation of my best friend, I just began reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Apparently it caused quite a stir within the literary community but, so far, I don't see any reason for any uproar. If it doesn't pick up very soon, I may return it to the library.

It is worth the read once you get into it. I am on the 2nd book right now Fifty shades darker. I am almost done & ready for the 3rd book

Hey Mystery Fans

An article in the newspaper announced this year's Edgar Allan Poe Awards (Edgars) winners. Details & more at the website mysterywriters.org; if you're interested in Florida writers, try mwaflorida.org.

Don't think I've read them all. The Confession of a Shopaholic Series was co authored by Sophie Kinsella wasn't it? I read it long ago, can't remember all the details.
I read Confessions of a shopaholic, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan and Shopaholic ties the knot.

I've read the Stephanie Plum series completely, Metro Girl and finished Motor Mouth last night. Love them all so far

Just noticed that the Princess is listless. Maybe she should visit the Klatch room - there's a hot tub going in.

alix and pf must have season seats for that bay window... and they claim that watching construction work on the back deck is the main attraction--yeah, right....:)
