    Right now I'm reading The Hot Rock by Donald Westlake. I've seen the movie lots of times but have never had the opportunity to read the book. So far it's pretty good.

    I recently started Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. People at my office have been talking about this book, so it thought I'd give it a shot. I don't read enough classics.

    As for The Other Hand (by Chris Cleave), which I wrote about upthread, it was a really special story. I won't tell you what it's about, more than it's the story of two women who are connected in a way we cannot imagine. On the back it said that the magic is in how the story unfolds, which really was true. It's a story that really stayed with me.

    I'm already on book #7. Since I'm breezing through them so quickly, I just grabbed all of them at the library this morning.

    I want to be Stephanie Plum.

    Me, too.
    I've seen the author in person a few times at book festivals. She is totally that way. Quite a bawdy sense of humor. I can certainly see how she'd come up with Lula and Grandma Mazur's characters.

    I've seen Janet Evanavich's name pop up so many times on this thread so I went and ordered the first book in her Stephanie Plum series a few days ago. I am really excited to start reading it when it comes thanks to all of the people who have been talking about it on here.
