I get my (borrowed) copy of Hornet's Nest tonight, and cannot wait! I have ordered all 3, as this is a series that I WILL want to re-read!

I read that though he only had the final three manuscripts done, he actually had outlines for more books that were not written yet....I can't remember how many there were supposed to be in the series, maybe 9 or something like that.

I am hoping they find someone else to write them.
Anyone know how the inheritance dispute between his father & brother vs the long time live in girlfriend is coming?

I have been listening to The Hour I First Believed, and I am REALLY liking it! But it is taking me forever! It is long, and occassionally there have been some topics which prevent me from listening if my kids are home. Almost done! I really like Wally Lamb.

Tonight I started reading Diary by Chuck Palahniuk. I can't find anything else on hand to read. Not sure if I'll continue it once I find something.
Read "Sirens" may years ago, in my early Sci-Fi days. . . loved it!

Currently reading Fortunes Hand by Belva Plain. Read some of her other books years ago and enjoyed them so I picked this one up in our workplace "lending library". Right before this I read Push by Sapphire, the novel that the movie Precious is based on....very disturbing and sad. Haven't seen the movie and not so sure I would want to now after reading the book.
