    I'm currently reading an Alex Delaware book too right now, Monster. I'm not loving it so far. I've had a hell of a time getting into it, which has never been an issue with other Kellerman books. I'm not having great luck with books lately.

    Most recently finished Saturday by Ian McEwan and Lost in the Forest by Sue Miller - they were both a 4 out of 5 stars I'd say.

    I just started Seven Types of Ambiguity by Australian writer Elliot Perlman. It is a story about one set of events told from seven different points of view (I think, I'm just 60 or so pages in). Thought it was a neat-o way to tell a story!

    Some items on my to be read shelf (or shelves) - Shutter Island, Bel Canto, The Lady and the Unicorn and The Memory of Running.

    I'd better get off of here and read!

    I'm halfway through Frankenstein. I had been reading a lot of chick lit lately, so I thought I would pick up a classic and read something with a bit more substance. It's pretty good so far- I like the story, not sure if I like the way she writes.

    Great choice, Pinkie.

    My bestest friend got me Blinking With Fists, Billy Corgan's poetry collection, for my birthday! I just started it and it's wonderful thus far.

    I had left "Gone South" by Robert McCammon on an airplane, so I bought it again and finally finished it last night.

    Now, I can start on "The Kite Runner" with no guilty conscience.

    I just finished 'The Book of Lists, The '90's Edition'. Just what I needed more trivia. I'm starting 'In Our Hearts We Were Giants' next.

    Darkness, Take My Hand by Dennis Lehane (best known for Mystic River).

    I like his mysteries, but I also like the dark, dark humor.

    Oh, and also--best title...evah!

    I just finished Tracy Chevalier's The Lady and the Unicorn, which I loved. Not as good as The Virgin Blue, but still really good

    I'm about 70 pages into Joanne Harris' Holy Fools - more historical fiction (my favorite genre lately). So far, I'm enjoying it.

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    What do you think of Robert Harris (Fatherland, Archangel)? I loved Fatherland, but I haven't picked up his new one, Pompeii, yet.

    It's been about two or three Kellerman releases since I've rushed out and bought the hardcover upon release. Kellerman's lost his touch, imho.
