    Maybe 'cause we're all such King fans we get an extra large dosage of Maine? I dunno. Irving is from New Hampshire, so he probably knows Maine pretty well.

    Can't explain that one. He still lives in Ireland? That seems kind of weird to write about Maine instead of your own backyard, unless it's absolutely necessary to the story.

    PS. Cider House is awesome.

    Just finishing The Eternal Summer: Palmer, Nicklaus, and Hogan in 1960, Golf's Golden Year by Curt Sampson and was thinking about either

    IRA by Tim Pat Coogan which could be a bit heavier than I want to read next or I was thinking about going with Mile 81 on my newish Kindle Fire. Was hoping to read all my regular books before I tried my first E Book. Still up in the air I guess as I have a few choices.

    Trying to motivate myself to finish "A Lion Among Men" by Gregory Maguire, which really isn't very good at all.
