    I am about half way thru The Cuckoo's Calling by that lady who wrote those Harry Potter books (JK Rowling)and am loving it! Going slow so I can savour the writing, it's got one of the best Private Detectives ever put on the page in it! She can certainly have a nice series going with this guy, he is great!

    I've been wondering about that one! I liked THE CASUAL VACANCY, and was hoping she'd keep going on non MG/YA books. She's a fine storyteller

    I'm reading The Wind Through the Keyhole and loving it. I read the DT what is probably a long time ago, though it doesn't really seem it, and this book is reminding me so wonderfully of Mid-World speech, an DT aspect I always loved.
     
  7. Haunted

    Haunted This is my favorite place

    Finished Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter and the latest Alex Cross, Cross My Heart by James Patterson. CL, CL is quite good and I recommend. If you are an Alex Cross fan, be forewarned!

    CONSTANCE (Patricia Clapp). I've loved this one since jr. high., and I'm feeling nostalgic today :) Good history, engaging writing. I had an entire conversation with Myles Standish at Plimouth Plantation based upon what I learned in this book! :D

    Finished A Face In The Crowd, it was great. I hope someone makes a movie from it.

    Struggling with a book in German now. I need to improve my German skills, so I should be motivated. But I am so stubborn, if I feel that I should do something, I am instantly demotivated. Stupid brain!

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    I loved both, they were my 2 latest reads, I finished Dr Sleep last night.

    I am trying to decide if I should go for a smaller book like WTTKH, a medium book like Firestarter or a big one like Talisman/UTD.

    I also loved Joyland, and already loving Dr Sleep... I am sure I will love this book, I have been waiting for it for a year and a half, as The Shining is my favorite book ever.

    I would choose Firestarter, I like the book... I've read it only in Russian many, many years ago, and still can't find time to re-read it in the original, though I have it on my book shelf. Some day I will read it, too.

    CriticAndProud AKA Xylophone Man, or, if you prefer, Cappy.

    I am getting through Pet Sematary, so far it is very good. I am at the bit where,
    Church has been reduced to road kill, and Jud + Louis are going to bury him.

    Trying to read Jack Vance's Dying Earth. Trying not to call it quits but may have to. I just can't get into the story and Vance's dry style.

    Just finished reading Going After The Rubber Chicken by Dan Simmons. It's a small chapbook with three speeches he did at various award functions. He had a couple of interesting things to say about King in one of them. He likes King.
