    Later on today, I should definitely be finishing The Knife of Never Letting Go. Yay!
    I'll be sure to let everyone know my thoughts/opinion(s) on it once I'm done. But as of now (88%) it is a very engaging, suspenseful, and highly addictive story. I'm just have a sinking feeling that it's going to end with a major cliffhanger, since this is the 1st in the Walking Chaos series...

    Finished A Winter's Haunting over the weekend...I just didn't like it, say sorry. The storyline was just all over the place, and it never really came together.

    Started McCammon's Gone South, and also reading Everything's Eventual again.

    I'm reading The Source of Magic by Piers Anthony. It's really good so far...and the rhyming couplets are easy to understand.

    I am rereading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, by Stephen King. First read was about five years ago, I guess. I am really loving it for two reasons: 1) It's so very well written, funny, so Steve; and, 2) It's most inspiring now since I'm trying my own hand a little. I appreciate knowing there's a reference book I can understand and trust and which will inspire me. I've read fiction most of my lengthy life, have a number of favorite authors, but sK was the first one, partly due to OW, to cause me to give story writing a real try myself. And so far, in its way, writing is as satisfying and therapeutic as anything I've ever done, including painting which, due to Duma Key, I've started again! .

    Wow, that is WONDERFUL, Frank!
    I've always found On Writing to very inspirational and informative. And Uncle Stevie wrote it in layman's terms, so it's easily understood. Upon my second reading (roughly 8 years ago,) I went so far as to take notes. I recommend it.


    So I said that I'd get back to everyone about The Knife of Never Letting Go.... and my suspicions were correct. It ends with a MAJOR cliffhanger. Now I really want to know more!

    I just finished "A Clockwork Orange" the other day and started "1984" yesterday. I've been on a dystopia kick for a while now. Eagerly awaiting SK's "The Wind Through the Keyhole."

    I have not read For Whom the Bell Tolls, but I have read The Sun Also Rises, and it is genius in its simplicity. I can't imagine dreading being forced to read Hemingway, he is my favorite writer.

    I just started Nightmares and Dreamscapes. I enjoyed reading the Introduction. I have a new Favorite quote.

    "You don't have anything to lose when you take your first whack at the pinata, but to take a second one (and a third ... and a fourth ... and a thirty-forth) is to risk failure, depression..."

    I always take a second whack and usually land on my face, but giving up isn't an option. So, If I keep trying I'll eventually get a hit.
