The last Brige, by Teri Coyne
It was heart wrenching, annoying, redeming. A most excellent read.

Black Out, by Lisa Unger
Hmmm. This had most certainly had twist and turns, for once, I wasn't sure what was what in a mystery novel. Of course that had more to do with the main character's mental instibility and the fact that most of the story was being told from that character's point of veiw.

Presently getting through The Walking People, by Mary Beth Keane
I'm on page 156 the prologue was pretty good, but after that, i've been skipping through much of the story to get to more interesting story lines. If not for the prologue, I would just be done with it, but I'm want to see how things came about. Still, I might scan to the meat real soon.

next two books waiting on my desk to be read:

Calling Mr Lonely Hearts, by Laura BeneDict
Hot House Flower, by Margot Berwin

I love twilight. I have been hooked on vampire books since I read twilight. I have already read the house of night series from P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, and I just finished reading the Vampire Academy series as well by Richelle Mead. and Now I am reading the night world from L. J. Smith. They all are great books

I just love Billie Letts books, and it started with WHERE THE HEART IS. Have you read MADE IN THE USA?

Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts (Grand Central Publishing, $13.99)
In her fourth novel, Billie Letts presents a moving tale of two unforgettable children searching for a place to call home. At the center of the story is Lutie McFee, a fifteen-year-old girl who lives in Spearfish, South Dakota, with her younger brother, Fate, and Floy Satterfield, the three-hundred-pound ex-girlfriend of their father. This heartbreaking, life-affirming story of two gutsy children who must discover how cruel, unfair, and frightening the world is before they finally find a place where they belong, against all odds, manage to do just that.
This book was so good!

I read a short book called My Pal Valentine...Short intro: "This is a touching story about an extraordinary dog and her caregiver. Valentine was way too smart for the average canine. Everyone who knew her would say the same thing."

I found it from Google looking for stories about dogs for my children (2nd and 4th grade) which took me to: [url=http://www.publishamerica.net/product85350.html]My Pal Valentine[/url]

I'm already into Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. The Twilight series is very easy to read and a real pageturner!

Well, I just finished two by Stephen King. Duma Key and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. Since I have a ten year old daughter, that latter one really hit the buttons. Both excellent books.

I just started The Leatherstocking Tales by James Fenimore Cooper. Somehow I missed reading those when I was younger, so it's the beginning of a great adventure.
