    Started 'The Sisters Of Hardscrabble Bay' by Beverly Jensen two days ago. I'm loving it!!! The writing is excellant, the author's writing style immediatly pulls you in and make you feel like you are right there where the story is taking place. It reminds me of something that Fannie Flagg would write, but darker. I first read one of her short stories in the 'Best American Short Stories' that was edited by King and knew that this was a writer to be sought out and read. It's too bad that she passed away. This book was published posthumously. But, I will be telling as many people about this great book and great writer!!! I recommend that any of you who like a good story seek out a copy of this book.

    I read Horns this past summer and really enjoyed it. I hope the movie is as good as it has potential for. I just got a copy of NOS4A2 and I'm mid-way through it. I starting out loving it, but if what is happening is what I think is happening, I may get mad at him! But it's still a good book so far!

    I've just discovered a writer called Linwood Barclay. I don't mean personally, but his books. I got Trust Your Eyes for4 Christmas and loved it so much, I just had to have another one. I do like crime fiction, but it has to be clever and this is so clever. Anyone else read him?

    Read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children this weekend. I liked it overall, it was a fast read. The ending was a little abrupt, and some parts of it were obvious it was meant for teens, but cute little story. Think I will let Evan give it a try.

    Currently on Nonfiction: Rework by the founders of 37 Signals. A good business book, with basic common sense types of examples for starting or running a company. Most people fall prey to people that repeat "what everybody else does", and do not listen to their own internal sense. Some of it is slightly contradictory but understandable. You have to have some decent instincts to operate as they do, but it definitely is a decent profit model: Keep it simple, good customer service, look at growth restrictions as failure avoidance, share what you do with others to build an audience, look for market streams for you by products, etc..

    I really liked this whole series. I had some issues with the ending of the whole series but it was worth the read.

    The Killing Kind by Bryan Smith - I am really digging this one. I dislike the majority of the characters (Smith actually said his initial goal was to write a book that didn't have a single redeeming character), but the way everyone seems to treat everyone else is pretty fascinating. Tough to find a character to root for at times (which is kind of the point), but at other times it seems like I want to root for everyone because pretty much everyone has something terrible happen to them at one point.
