    Moving on to Dark Tower VII tonight. I keep thinking I need to read something else - do you know how weird everything gets when all you read in the space of a year is the Dark Tower series? But every book has a cliff hanger that needs to be put to rest.

    Just finishing 'Salem's Lot for the umpteenth time, then starting The Good Lord Bird (James McBride). I'm a sucker for well done Civil War/post Civil War era fiction.

    You should see if you can get a hold of a couple of books by Don Robertson- The Three Days, By Antietam Creek, The River And The Wilderness and Prisoners Of Twilight. Robertson is one of the authors that King mentions whenever he is asked who influenced him when he was young and wanted to be a writer. Robertson has written other books that were bestsellers such as The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread and its two sequels. He is a wonderful writer! While reading him you can tell that King borrowed heavily from Don's writing style.

    I will, and thank you! The Good Lord Bird stumbled badly in the (completely unnecessary) prologue--it's supposed to read as a newspaper article, but so few writers of fiction do that well (totally not kissing butt when I say SK is one of the few non-reporter background writers who have captured the style, in Carrie). It's a completely different skill than narrative writing. The book improved quickly, though, as McBride got into the meat of his story. :)

    I began reading I Am a Cat by Soseki Natsume today. It is a collection of shorts told from the perspective of a cat. And each of the shorts sort of poke fun and analyze people (at least of that time and area) in a way that only a cat could. All the shorts together make for a long read at a little over 600 pages. And even the newest of these stories is about a hundred years old.

    So it is a bit intimidating, but so far so good.

    I had a readers block recently, hard turned a page in about 6 weeks. Hope you get better soon.

    I'm still reading the same book as when I last posted on the old boards thread, butas this is a new site and all, I'm reading (and hopefully finishing within the next few weeks) the dark tower VII.

    I'm reading Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman. The man is a wizard. I love his short stories.
