I just finished Safe Harbor by Luanne Rice. First book in a long time that made me cry.

Well, I thought I'd read a few pages of the 5th of the Rowan series, Lyon's Pride, last night, and didn't get to bed until 1:30 AM. Exciting stuff.

That's how I read that series, giant gulps.

I was on the waiting list for "Waiting To Be Heard" on the library's e-book website. I received an email stating that the ebook is available and on hold for me, but when I went to the website this morning, it is down. So I went on the regular website and reserved the actual book, and another one. I will go to the library some time today to get them, and also ask them when the website will be back up. I get nervous about this because I fear that at some point, lending e-books will not be permitted. Social Security does not provide enough money to be paying for ebooks. I will be shattered!!!

I'm half way through the last of the Rowan series. My latest order for used books arrived so I'll be following up with 4 more Jeffrey Deaver books.

I hope you get to read it before the finish of the new trial that is ongoing in Italy. A 'guilty' verdict this time would muddle the whole matter.

I called the library and they were not aware that their website is down. They are now "working on it."

I should have it today or tomorrow. I would expect any book coming from the Knox side of the story will make her appear innocent, and any book coming from the Kercher side to make her appear guilty. I read reviews on Amazon for both books, and even the people reviewing the Kercher family book seem to feel that Amanda is innocent. It's really a tough call. I tend to think she's innocent.

I'm in between books. Trying to read some oldBen Bova stories, but they are so dated they are ridiculous. Back to the stacks...

There are three authors whose books I read long ago. There are a couple at the end of each of their series still waiting for me. For the last two winters I've not gotten around to it. Decided rather than find someone new to read I'll pick between the three previous series and load up with the first few books from one of them. Now to decide between Rita Mae Brown, Lilian Jackson Braun, or Margaret Truman. Decisions, decisions...
