Have you been reading all of the Cross books? I thought that one, and the 3 that came before it, were garbage. If you are feeling the same, know that Mary Mary is a lot better. Not great but better.

I have read them(Cross) all so far. Roses are Red was decent, but I agree on Violets are Blue. That was garbage.

I like BBW so far. I got Mary, Mary for Christmas so now I am playing catch up so I can read it.

Personally, I have been enjoying the womens murder club more than the recent Cross books.

Don't forget to read London Bridges before you go on to Mary Mary, especially since Bridges has the same villain as BBW. I actually thought BBW was one of the worst books I ever read, and certainly the worst of the Patterson lot. I've yet to read London Bridges because I was so turned off by BBW, but I have heard good things about Mary Mary so I will pick that up at some point.

Well, BBW was okay. Nothing spectacular. The ending was a big tease, but I knew that going in since my sister said the villian returns in London Bridges.

I finished three books today:

Bouncing off the Moon - David Gerrold - sequel to Jumping off the Planet

A Century of Science Fiction 1950-1959 - ed. R. Silverberg - It's possible I've read this one before, or perhaps I've just read all the stories before. I've started an Excel file of what I've read to hopefully not reread something unexpectedly

How to Talk to a Liberal - Ann Coulter - very interesting aggregation of lots of her columns, grouped by topic, including some that haven't been printed/published before. Only thing is, some of the topics were overrepresented in my mind.

** of *****

5 short stories on the American Revolution, this is just an Ok book I have heard them all before and in better detail.

Boring, boring, boring. I haven't finished it yet but maybe when the British burn down the White House things should pick up.

Great book. I will make a trip to Johnstown to check out the scene of the disaster this summer.

I finished "Slaughterhouse-Five" by Kurt Vonnegut a few days ago. Now I'm most of the way through "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. I'm hoping to read "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by James Joyce before the end of the month.

I just started reading Dean Koontz's Intensity. The beginning is REALLY similar to the movie Haute Tension. Hopefully the ending doesn't have the same twist.

Quick story, back in 92-93 in high school, I hated reading with a passion. Never wanted to read the school required texts/books much less novels on my own time until a co-worker suggested Skeleton Crew. That book single handedly turned me on to reading. There are some great stories in there, including one of my all time favorites, "Cain Rose Up."

Kinda depressing, but I've only managed to get through seven books so far this year.

Nothing right now, but it's going to be either

Bill Bryson's Notes from a Small Island or I'm a Stranger Myself
Laurence Gonzalez's Deep Survival
Steven Ozment's A Mighty Fortress
or
Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild.

I'm not one for much fiction.

next up:


i was surprised when I actually found two Pohl books I hadn't read. This one and Stopping at Slowyear.
