Janese,


This is the first time I'm trying this, so let's see what happens.


I'm reading Stella Whitelaw's Pray and Die.  It is an O.K. mystery.  I'm not entralled, but it is a new setting for me (Sussex, England), so that's good.

Hi
Edie,


 




I'm
just
checking
to
see
if
this
works. Sometimes
when
I
try
to
post
it
just
seems
to
go
off
into
the
ether :-)




Hopefully
we'll
get
the
hang
of
everything
soon.




I've
just
about
finished
SHADOW
MAN
by
McFayden. I
hope
to
start
the
next
one
he
wrote
soon. Nothing
like
reading
about
serial
killers
to
put
one
to
sleep
at
night :-)

Hi
Jerry,




You
are
quite
welcomeGlad
to
have
you
aboardI
too
enjoy
John
Grisham's
books
and
recently
finished "Bleachers".  It
was
different
from
most
of
his
books
as
it
did
not
deal
with
the
lawIt
was
about
a
high
school
football
coach
who
was
dying
and
the
love/hate
relationship
he
had
with
his
playersIt
was
a
very
quick
read
and
quite
enjoyablePlease
share
your
thoughts
of "The
Summons" when
you
finish
it.

My
favorite
novel
of
all
time
is "A
Catcher
in
the
Rye" by
J.D. Salinger
When
my
son's
mother
and
I
were
together, I
suggested
that
she
check
it
out
from
the
library
and
read
itThe
whole
time
she
was
reading
it, she
had
a
constant
grin
on
her
faceShe
said
that
was
because
Holden
Caulfield
sounded
like
a
person
just
like
me



But
it
was
like
many
moviesThe
timeline
for
everything
that
Holden
did
and
all
of
the
places
that
he
went
to
was
unrealisticNobody
could
have
done
all
of
that
in
a
24-hour
time
frame (take
a
train, to
New
York, check
into
a
hotel, go
ice
skating, visit
his
old
teacher, then
finally
go
home.



I
recommend
it
to
all
of
youYes, I've
always
harbored
a
deep-rooted
abhorrence
for
phonies, especially
"secret
slobs" as
Holden
referred
to
his
roommate
as.

Hi
Nancy,




Sounds
like
you
are
going
to
be
very
busy
with
your
readingI
wish
I
could
find
the
time
to
get
into
my
bookMaybe
after
my
company
leaves
on
Sunday.  "The
Other
Boleyn
Girl" was
very
goodI
really
enjoyed
it
and
I
read
that
it
stayed
very
true
to
the
book
however
neither
are
true
to
history
which
was
somewhat
disappointingWell, I
better
go
before
my
company
gets
backTalk
to
you
when
I
can.
