  1. Corrupt a Wish

    Granted but teachers were left to roam the streets forming gangs and committing random acts of senseless education. I wish it would stop raining.
  2. Autobiographies and Biographies

    I once read a book called Maverick in Mauve about one of the Vanderbilt offspring and found their lifestyle very interesting - just getting on a plane one day and going someplace.
  3. A problem with... classics

    Kell, Jane, though I like the way her characters speak and I enjoyed reading her years ago, has always reminded me of soap operas. I found myself talking in very carefully phrased sentences.
  4. How do you choose your books?

    I go to this site: http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ and look at their award winners or short list books for a given genre and it's been a very good way to get to some good ones
  5. Who/Where Are You?

    Now I'm plagued by a dead witch and beloved but irritating townspeople, one of whom may be a murderer.
  6. Who/Where Are You?

    I'm a constable in Scotland plagued by a difficult witch and beloved but irritating townspeople.
  7. Love with the Proper Stranger
  8. Hi Poppy - sorry I wasn't paying attention to the messages - I'm so oblivious sometimes. I like your poppies. It's nice to come back and be reminded of some good songs - then I get my daughter to make a CD of the ones I like. I used to do it but she's so much better at finding them.

  9. It's been a while but just read Five Little Pigs and I still like Agatha Christie
  10. Have you read a book in one sitting?

    I wish I could get that devoted - like the kids with Harry Potter and their vigil followed by the page turning weekends
  11. I love Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan series - well developed characters.
  12. E books / Kindle / Sony Reader

    The Kindle serves my daughter well in college unless she has to get a specific translation and goes for the cheap one - like the 1.99 version of Don Quixote. However, I'm still stuck on the Palm with its scrolling and backlighting - and if that ever goes out of the marketplace, I hope there's a good replacement. I'm having to read a real book now because it's not in e-book land and it feels kind of nice to hold a piece of tree again.
