    Summer of Night...me too! First Simmons book for me, I'm about 40 pages in and liking it so far.

    I was reading Skippy Dies by Paul Murray, because it was on SK's list of best books from last year...but I am having a hard time getting into it. Only about 100 pages in, though...has anyone else read it and liked it?

    Simmons is an amazing writer! He excels at everything he does. You should try Carrion Comfort next, it'll blow you away!

    You are very much welcome, Spidey (I just knew you'd be interested!)
    I'll be sure to keep everyone posted, but so far I'm liking it a LOT. And there are two others in the Chaos Walking series, and one prequel.

    I finally got a grip on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo when I noticed that wending through the county to my local library are my requested reserved issues of Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Foer (this was highly recommended by Mz. Spidey) with Red Mist by Patrica Cornwell coming up from behind. Hoooboy.

    I have given up on The Prague Cemetery as it is so viciously anti-semetic and will take it back post haste.

    LOVE Commissario Brunetti! Two of my favorites are Death in a Strange Country and A Sea of Troubles.

    Not having finished the books I have already been reading, I started to read Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later by Francine Pascal. I was so happy to find the book, because I used to love this series when I was a child. And reading it now brings so many good memories.

    Listening to the audiobook of "The Cider House Rules." I've read it before and it's a great book.

    The movie is very good too. John Irving did the screenplay and did a very good job of axing half of his book to make a coherent screenplay and keeping the spirit of the book. I can't read or listen to this book without picturing Michael Caine as Dr. Larch. He was brilliant in the movie.

    This story in this book takes place in Maine. Does it seem to anyone else that Maine is the setting for more novels per capita than any other state?
