Well, I finished Is It Just Me? I don't know why, but I was disappointed. I love Whoopi and I know she's an actor/comedian not a writer, but I was hoping for more. Well, I should finish up 1984 today, and I'll read another chapter in Freethinkers before I start on The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption by Jim Gorant.

YAY!!! Now it's time for The Glass Castle. GO!

And then get Still Alice (by Lisa Genova) if you haven't already read that.

I started Still Alice yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. It's one of the best I have ever read. I really wanted to know how it ended but I also did not want it to be over. The characters are so strikingly real that I often forgot it was fiction. I'm going to read this one again.

I highly recommend it.

I just started The City, Not Long After by Pat Murphy. It's an odd post apocalype book. I've only read a few pages and I don't know if I am going to like it or not but the chances are that I will.

When I think of steve mcqueen I often wonder would he still be alive if our government would have not been stupid and continously letting the fda approve and disapprove laiatril (not sure of the spelling ) I think he was on to something with that treatment . I truly wish that our government came to its senses and get rid of the fda . The fda is all about the money and no can tell me any different . God rest his soul and that of the countless others who might have been helped . sorry I know off topic ..

The Hell Screen by I.J. Parker. This is a detective/mystery story set in 11th century Japan, and is part of a series. I am finding it very entertaining, but then I am interested in Japanese history, art, literature, etc.

The exotic setting is in no way difficult to grasp, and I think anyone who enjoys detective stories set in previous historical periods (the Brother Cadfael mysteries, for example) would find this book enjoyable. I have order the next in the series.

Finally finished Notorious Royal Marriages.. I did not read it cover to cover. Instead I read the specific matches that interested me. It was a very good read. Not sure what I retain in my brain, but it was quite good.
Just (finally) started extremely loud and incredibly close. It is a very very very good read and I can't quite figure it out but I can't stop reading it either. I think this is one I would love to discuss with others. I have heard of this and his other one- everything is illuminated- and I guess that will be next.
anyone else familiar with these?
