    Ili, is that Hiaason's newest? I just read last week that he had a new one out. I love his books.

    That is his latest, yes. And I've read several good reviews on it. Not surprising, really.

    I'm reading Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. It's a humorous book about punctuation. I'm a geek.

    Heard that's a great book, LG. It's a bestseller right now, isn't it? The cover's cute.

    I think it is on some bestseller lists, Paulie. I recommend it to you, Paulie, and any other aspiring writers, as the author advocates "sticklers unite" to correct misuses of apostrophes (see, this word is plural, not possessive) and the like.

It was interesting to read, too, that the author tried to weave in actual characters and events around the main fictitious story thread.
    I thought the movie with Tom Hanks and Paul Newman was absolutely fabulous although dark.. in case you were looking for a review, of sorts! I read the novel too and it was very well written.

    Misuse of apostrophes? Oh, gosh, I was just commenting on this the other day. Why is that such a huge epidemic?

    I finished American Gods by Neil Gaimen last night. It was fantastic. Not the sort of book I usually read, which made it all the better. I must admit I got an education about ancient Gods. It was very well written, and made me think. Those are the sort of books I like best - the ones that stay with you for awhile; you think about them at odd moments throughout the day, and you want your friend to read them so you can exchange opinions.
    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me

    I've just finished reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Fabulous book. He crafts fantasy and horror together so well.

    I'm in the process of reading The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I am in LOVE with this book and the character of Holden. Yay for axed rich kids!
