    What are you anxiously anticipating?

    Me, I can't wait for Wolves of the Calla, the next Dark Tower novel by Stephen King, and Quicksilver, the follow-up to Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson (of Snow Crash and Shadowrun fame).

    What books are you looking forward to?

    Hazy, I'm going to spoil that one for you: the butler did it.

    And puh-leeeease. That one was NOTHING compared to the excitement that IS Emanuel's Civ Pro outline. The butler did it in that one, too.

    I'm anxiously awaiting "Goofus and Gallant: A Retrospective on Social Dichotomies in Post-War North America". Should be a bestseller.

    Woohoo! Andy! Good to see you back at FORT.

    I am finishing up Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier(as recommended by Sher and Bill). Great book.

    I can not wait to read The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I heard that it is very well written.

    I also have Then Gangs of New York by Herbert Asbury lined up. I have wanted to read it since I saw the movie.

    Then there is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. There are so many people to discuss this book with these days.

    An odd choice on my list is Blood Sucking Fiends byChristopher Moore. It is an odd selection comming from a friend of mine who I never would have guessed likes vampire stories.
    It occurred to me that no matter how bleak things might seem at times, at least I have a head. ----Stargazer

    Okay, Moore transcends these labels. I read most of his, and Practical Demonkeeping is not an occult/horror book, in the same way Bloodsucking Fiends is not strictly speaking a Vampire book. Moore just uses these creatures and such as devices for his warped sense of humor. Think Hiassen, if he had a vampire in it, but lighter in tone.

    Also, I have now added that Goofus and Gallant to my list. It sounds great! I loved Pink Think: Becoming a Woman in Many Uneasy Lessons
    by Lynn Peril. Kind of along those lines.

    I've heard of Moore, and I've been meaning to read one of his books. I just don't know where to start.

    And, Amanda, you were kidding about Goofus and Gallant, right?
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Yes, I was. Cool title though, wasn't it?

    Someone ought to write it. It could be the new definitive Miss Manners-esque book.

    And Rachael, you don't look like a dork. If anything, I'M the dork for even thinking it up.

    I'm a HUGE fan of Robin Cook. He has a new book out "Seizure". I'm on the waiting list for it at the library. I'm resisting the temptation to go out and buy it. I'm sticking to a budget
