We tried to see "Coffee, Tea or Me", but we got kicked out.

We actually saw "Woodstock" at the drivein with our moms! Couldn't bring the beer that time though.

We left Dad home with the little kids and just Mom and I went. What a special memory that is.
I have never read it, but have seen the film

Thanks for the tip on Andre Norton. My kind of book. I love telepathic pets.

The only reason I haven't been reading science fiction lately, is that I pretty much have read them already.

I ordered a copy of this one from Abe Books. It's paperback and cost $8.50 including shipping. About the cost if I'd found in in a store.

It's getting harder to find the kind of SF I like to read. Now it's all computers and such, nothing on exploration and discovery.

The last time I was able to find any quality SF was online at Baen Free Library, but they rarely add new free ones, and I've read everything there that I was interested in.

However, that left me free to get into crime fiction that I'm really enjoying.

I just received a couple of Jeffrey Deaver books, and put aside my Baldacci for later, while starting one of JD's stories with Kathryn Dance, the kinesics expert (body language) as a main character.

This character was introduced in one of the Lincoln Rhyme books, and I found her character fascinating, so I found one of his books with her as a main character. I'm psyched!

For me it was Alive...

and Silence of the Lambs.

The stories were so compelling that I read each of them in one night.

I could not put them down.

You really need to read the book Kylie. The movie was good but there was a whole lot that got left out. It was great seeing the movie but I still liked the book better.
