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 :-)

Spinner,




I
tried
posting
a
message
this
morning
to
Janese
and
my
whole
computer
shut
downSo,
I
am
back
again
and
perhaps
it
will
go
through
this
time.




I
guess
it
is
O.K. for
you
to
have
a
BOOK
about
serial
killers
in
bed
with
you
rather
than
the
real
thing!




I
was
listening
to

The
Lost
Mother

by
Mary
McGarry
Morris
on
my
ipod
and
I
found
it
so
boring
that
I
quit
and
decided
that
I
really
don't
care
if
that
mother
is

ever

found!




I
then
began
listening
to
Sue
Miller's
new
bookThe Senator's Wife,
on
my
ipod
and
this
is
much
better. :

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
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.




I
have
never
read "The
Catcher
in
the
Rye".  I
read
many
classics
when
I
was
in
