I can do a book every 2-3 days if I like the book. I have even read The Stand (long version) in 24 hours before.

I also have four other books going right now in various rooms of the house. 2007 Best Food Writing, 2008 Best Food Writing, 2008 Best American Travel Writing and another American Food Writing book that is an anthology of 200+ years of food writing. Come to think of it, in progress are also Big Red (about the USS Nebraska), And Johnny Got His Gun, a collection of Key West short stories, another collection of Florida Mystery Writer short stories, a book on modern design, another book on Miami Modern architecture, a book on Frank Lloyd Wright, Neil Peart's Ghost Rider and assorted other books scattered throughout the house.

If you ever want to see my collection of books, it's here: LibraryThing | Catalog your books online

I'm reading Hot Flash Holidays by Nancy Thayer. It is kind of funny.

Just, finally, picked up Dewey - The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. It's a true story and I've only just started reading it, I'm totally captivated. Plus, the picture on the cover of Dewey is a real heart-melter. What a dolly! I'm going to whiz through in no time I have a feeling. Then I'll be sad it's done.
