    Are you hooked now?

    I just finished reading Stephen King's "It." Recently re-watched the old mini-series and the new movie. Darn, that's a big book!!!

    Yes!!!! I thought of you when I downloaded it. It's a perfect way to escape.

    I'm so creeped out by clowns, I don't think I could read or watch it.

    If you weren't creeped out before, the recent movie would make you want to join a "no clown" club.

    I just finished..Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine- except she isn't.

    At thirty years-old, Eleanor Oliphant is alone in this world. She always has been, actually. In and out of foster care since she was a little girl, she has never been touched by anyone in a loving way and doesnít even know what that would feel like, but thatís ok. All of her physical needs are met, you see and she has never had any emotional needs.

    Eleanor will stay with me for a long time. I was sad when I knew I only had a few pages to go. beautifully written

    Ahhh, I'm almost done with it. It's heart wrenching at times, isn't it?

    Just finished End of Watch by Stephen King. Sad about what happened at the end, but it was a good finale in the trilogy.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Re: What are you reading?

    After finishing Jenna Miscavige-Hill's memoir Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape , I needed something a little lighter. Now I'm reading Crazy Little Thing by Tracy Brogan. I'm not a romance novel fan per se, but Tracy was my seatmate on a portion of my Alaskan vacation this past summer, so I wanted to read one of her books. So far, it's fun and funny, just like the author!

    Now, how did you just happen to end up on a cruise with an author, huh?
