    You know I haven't read that particular bio, but if it's about the French writer Colette, then she is a literary figure with a very juicy life who has always fascinated me. I would think it would be a good read, I myself might check that out sometime.

    Yes, it is that Colette and yes, her life was very juicy, including a lesbian affair with Napolean's niece, several marriages and other seductions on her part. I usually read a lot of biographies on figures such as Henry VIII, Eleanor of Aquitaine, etc. I must admit, this is a lot more exciting.

    So far I have only read a bit. I am trying to save it for my trip next week. I will let you know what I think of the entire book.

    I just bought Kyle Mills' newest Mark Beamon book, "Sphere of Influence".

    Do you like John Sandford's rendition of Lucas Davenport in his Prey series? Then you'll probably love Mills' books. Beamon is the FBI version of Davenport.

    This is the 5th book in the Beamon series, and I've got them all.

    Chiro, long time no see!

    I love Diana Gabaldon's books. I chanced upon the first one years ago and it's been agony ever since waiting for the latest installment. I think I kind of like the first one best, though.

    I love historical fiction - okay, the romantic type. I consider it research, you know, so I can write my own some day. It could happen!

    I've been reading a lot of Georgette Heyer lately. She's like reading Jane Austen but with livelier plotting.

    Where the Red Fern Grows is one of my favorites. Very sad. I haven't read it in a couple years. I may have to go dig up my copy now.

    I just finished reading Danielle Steel's The Dating Game. Good book, good for light reading.

    I'm currently reading "Black" by Ted Dekker... it's a great story... but I don't get it yet There's two plots involved with the same guy, but the reader can't figure out which scenario is the main character's dream, and what is reality. It's an excellent novel as far as I am in it... I just don't get it yet.

    I'm reading the latest from Tom Perrotta (Election, Joe College), Little Children. Very interesting so far, in that it skewers 30-something parents who live in suburbia.

    Ouch, Texie we're not all bad, ya know

    I am finally reading American Gods, and loving it so far when i started it, I was a little worried it was sounding too much like Clive Barker's Damnation Game (my least favourite Barker book) but it's taken some very original turns.
