I remember that book. I love old-fashioned murder mysteries, and Sister O'Marie's I loved. I wonder if she's still alive and writing?

Sorry to say Sister died on May 27 of this year. She died of Parkinsons Disease.

When in doubt, always go for a classic. I'm reading "Wuthering Heights!"

Good Omens

I highly recommend "Good Omens," in fact I recommend it so much that I buy up all the used copies I can find so I can hand them out to folks. To date I've handed out 23 copies and only received two of them back as I misread a couple of people's book likes/dislikes. Most all have kept them or passed them on to others to enjoy.

And if you e-mail Terry Pratchett he'll answer you back, a very nice man.

I didn't "discover" the new Koontz until #3 was released...I was lucky enough to be able to scoop up #'s 1&2 at the same time. I loved them and they are the first Koontz DH has read since "Watchers."

What I am reading at this time is "Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth," the last in the Nightside series by Simon R. Green. Then it's back to The Time Wars novels by Simon Hawke. I'm whiling away the time until I find a new author to come up with something good or a favorite author releases a new one.

As a matter of fact, Terry Pratchett has a new Discworld book coming out called "Unseen Academicals," it's about football and the team at the Unseen University for those of you who are Discworld fans. Also waiting for the new Rachel Caine book...the title escapes me but it should be soon.

Just finished the lost symbol - Dan Brown.

Just started After dark - Haruki Murakami

Always reading my recipe books, even though I often end up online for a particular recipe

They are the first I've ever read of him. Just happened to pick up an omnibus with the first three novels of Nightside in a used bookstore. I'll be getting more.
