    That's good, ixcrisxi. Did you have "Great Expectations" for it? *badum-ching!* Seriously though, I remember reading that in junior high, and I really liked it.

    I'm glad you got it! I'm almost done myself, so we can have a chat about it over tea! Um, virtual, E-tea!

    Right now I am reading ..... Empire Falls by Richard Russo. So far it's okay, but needs to have more spice to it, hopefully that's coming up.
    Me too Rufus, I am also a fan of Anne Rule, I just started reading "Heart Full of Lies' and like with most of her books I can't put it down.

    Just started "Swan Song" by Robert McMannon (sp)

    AWESOME BOOK. Similar to The Stand by Stephen King but, much better.

    It gave me nightmares though.......

    "Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers." It's about what happens when we donate our body to science -- everything from letting cosmetic surgeons practice facelifts to serving as crash-test dummies. Fascinating.

    , Snowie... I do have Great Expectations for it in fact. It's pretty good so far. Although, I think I should finish some of the leisure books that I've started and not finished (like the ones that I borrowed from Manny).

    Night Shift By Stephen King.

    A collection of short stories, just finished reading the first one "Jerusalem's Lot". Just about to start on "Graveyard Shift".

    If you liked Jerusalem's Lot, now pick up the full-length book that the short story inspired, 'Salem's Lot.

    Re-reading David Eddings "Belgarath, the Sorceror" til I get to the library! Related to his first series, The Belgariad.

    I love sci-fi fantasy; Regency romances my secret pleasure (uh, so much for secret); humorous murder mysteries (recently discovered Den of Antiquity series by Tamar Myers) and love historical mysteries like Robin Paige and Anne Perry; historical romances; Nora Roberts, in a class of her own; Deepak Chopra; great spy books - can't remember favorites, "The Source" by Michener one of my all-time loves, and on and on.

    I've seen the film, excellent.

    I'll have to get the book now you've reminded me.
