I got as far as pg184 before I threw in the towel on Airframe by Michael Crichton....tediously boring and full of "F" bombs, too!

Now reading Cell by Robin Cook~ The New York Times� bestselling author and master of the medical thriller returns with a top-notch fusion of groundbreaking medical science and edge-of-your-seat suspense. George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc.

I was debating buying The Truth According to Us instead (which I also have on "liberry" hold) but I saw that the first page is a family tree. Going back and forth to the first page on a Kindle isn't easy (okay, I know there's a way but I never researched it so I don't know how) so I also reserved it IN PAPER from my library. Also, the story sounds a bit precious, so I'm waiting to see if anyone here refutes that. I don't *do* precious. Or twee. And certainly not a combination of the two, although I think that they probably mean the same thing. Yet another thing that I'm too tired to research. See? "in a mood"
So glad that I'm not the only one that can be "in a mood".

I started The Truth According to Us. I'm just 5% in but so far so good.
The Truth According to Us is next on my list after I finish The Rock. I am about 75% in and I am not enjoying it at all. I actually can't wait to be finished with it.

I wholeheartedly agree that 300 ish pages is the best.
I have no idea what is going to happen but it has me keeping on reading one more chapter.
I'm anxious to read TTATU and I still love long books!

(If you ever hear me saying things like "Back in the good old days..." or "In MY time...," please just take me out back and shoot me. Thank you.)
Dawn don't sweat the small stuff. When you get as old as dirt, like I am, you won't give a rip about saying "Back in the good old days." You'll just feel blessed to remember your name let alone the good old days!!!

I thought it interesting to see that Bill O Reiley was a school teacher in Miami way back when . I guess it did not pay very much so he went on to tv .
I loved WFE so I will add ATWE to my TRL. Thanks for the recommendation!

I'm into book 4 of the Bellingwood series by Diane Greenwood Muir. There are 9 in the series.

I started the first one because I needed something to chill out with. It sounded like a cool book (okay, chill and cool..heeheehee...never mind).

This series has saved my sanity. It's lovely and does have several mysteries that unfold but that's not what I love the most. The characters are stunning. There are so many of them in the small town. I'd love to know most of them.

It's an easy read and an informative one, too.

Ketabcha- this sounds perfect. Thanks for the recommendation. (still enjoying TTATU - love these code abbreviations for those in the know). Next will likely be Queenie Hennessy...but these will be on my list too.
