I just finished "From the Corner of His Eye" by Koontz. Not his best, but still pretty good.

I just finished "Elvis, Jesus and Coca Cola" by Kinky Friedman.

You Texans should have elected him Governor - At least politics would be fun.

BTW, in the book he had a cat he called Beezer. You don't suppose.........

I figure if I've read a book more than once it probably should go on my top list. The first book I remember reading every year of late grade school through Jr. High was:

The Yearling - Majorie Kinnan Rawlings

And I'll probably work my way through all these another time. Like old friends.
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Gone With The Wind - Margaret Mitchell
In Cold Blood - Truman Capote
The World According to Garp - John Irving
Lonesome Dove - Larry McMurtry
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
The Red Dragon - Thomas Harris
A Great Deliverance - Elizabeth George
Roots - Alex Haley
Have to sneak in one more... The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck

And while I couldn't bump any of the above, I've read Koontz' Watchers a couple of times, too. I feel bad not including any Stephen King, Harlen Coben, Julie Smith, Robert Crais or Michael Connelly books. I think I've read everything each of them has written.

These are favorites of mine, also. A Confederacy of Dunces, Slaughterhouse-five, Catch-22, and The Sound and the Fury make my list as well.

Today I was at Borders and was reminded Nelson Demille's The Charm School is also one of my favs. So many good reads.

I'm working my way through the Unfortunate Events chronicled by Lemony Snicket and wondering why they are so popular. The plot ideas are so simplistic that anyone over the age of 7 or 8 should fail mightely in the suspension of disbelief and the stories are so disturbingly dark that (in my opinion) no one under the age of ten should be allowed to read them (there are some truly horrible things described in these books). Currently, I'm just curious if the main characters even surviver the series. If they weren't audio books, there's no way I could finish them.

For those of you who like well written kids books, re-read the Harry Potter series and give Lemony Snicket a miss.

Being an A.M. in a book store I am anticipating a hellish month... Oprah her new bazillion selling bookclub pick this week, then when that finally calms down...

In three weeks...

THIS is released.



That'll be like training camp for the Superbowl on July 21st... HP7...

Between we have THIS one, which'll be HUGE!

Three or four months ago I put both Barack Obama books on hold at SPL ... Tredici's favorite public building in Seattle ... here's some pics she took of it:

. . . . . .

Anyway .... when I put them on hold, I was #375 ('Audacity') and #190 (first book) .... I even reserved the LARGE PRINT edition of 'Audacity,' but was #155. Today - four months later - I was #78 .... so I just went out and boughtthe damned thing - $19.

Wonder how many here have read that book and know the story behind it. Took me a bit of time to get in the mood for it several years ago when I read it, but it really grew on me. I should read it again.

Montana - Did that third book in the Koontz Frankenstein trilogy ever come out? I still haven't read the first two on my bookshelf because, well, I hate waiting on the ending.

I recently read "A Painted House" by John Grisham. I didn't realize that book existed, or I would have read it much sooner. I am very familiar with the setting, and Grisham tells it with perfect detail. It's pretty amazing. My dad was 7 years old in 1952. That's the same age as the main character, and he lives in the same small town!

I'm currently reading "Angela's Ashes." It's strikingly similar to A Painted House, only it's the Irish version, and the kid and his family are even poorer. It's cool reading these two coming-of-age stories back to back. Angela's Ashes won the Pulitzer Prize.

It's not out yet, and damnit the waiting is killing me! I think it's due out in May or June?
