I'm reading, albeit somewhat slowly, Riven by Jerry B. Jenkins. It's a good read, but not really the style I like. It's written where at the beginning of the book there are multiple distinct story lines, and later on they all come crashing together. It almost seems like this is the new style of writing, because I've found other books (we're talking fiction here) with similar styles.

For those that aren't familiar with Jenkins, he is a co-author of the Left Behind series, as well as many other religiously themed books.

Got more books at the library. I am reading one called Dewey by Vicki Myron. It's a real story about a cat who lived at a library in Iowa.

I've read all the Left Behind books. I will have to look for Riven at the library.

I think Jude should never have gotten involved with Arabella (hah)
I love Thomas Hardy, he is (was) a brilliant poet.
A bit difficult sometimes, very descriptive, so much so that I can read a paragraph a couple of times to understand his meaning.
CONCENTRATE CHEF MALONEY!!!
