I just returned DOLORES CLAIBORNE to the library, but I don't think you're picking up the same copy.  ;D

Probably not :D Every time I read through "On Writing" I get the urge to pick up a different one of Stephen King's books that I haven't read ;)

Just finished Rose Madder - good dependable King. Starting my first Karin Slaughter book, Broken, after I believe Ann-marie mentioned her earlier.

The Sweet Girl by Annabel Lyon

It's a fictional biography of Aristotle's daughter. We know she existed because arrangements for her marriage were made in his will. She was only 16 when he died.

I've been raiding the library for everything by Elizabeth Bloom aka Beth Saulnier, and enjoying Rose Madder by Stephen King, and editing, and doing NaNoWriMo. That oughta keep me out of trouble for a while.

Love the series. Hope you love the last two books.

Thank'ya kindly, I did!

Yep, just finished The Dark Tower and my Dark Tower marathon. Great book, great conclusion and I have to confess that the last book had me in tears once or twice.

I wish I'd read them years ago, but I'm glad I eventually did it as I did, in one go- it would have done my nut in to have had to wait for the next instalment to be written.

Right, now I'm off to source the graphic novels....
