    Giving Charles DeLint's, "The Onion Girl," another read. One of my all-time favorites... After that, a re-read of, "The Book Thief."
    Her: I love my computer! All of my friends are in there!
    Me: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about my freezer...
    Her: What?
    Me: What?

    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Saki, the complete short stories; there are a lot of them, some very short, and I tend to read a bit, go on to something else, and then return much later. He is very amusing and has some lovely throwaway lines, eg. "I love Americans, but not when they try to speak French, thank heavens they don't try to speak English.'

    Two out of three, CAN'T be bad.
    I recently finished a book entitled " Rusty Puppy" by Joe Lansdale.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the read and shall looking out for his name in my local Libraries but the biggest surprise of all was " A Turn In The Road " by Debbie Macomber.

    It's a weepie and a real page-turner. If you like weepies you really must get a copy.

    When I took those two out on loan I took three in total. I'm about start the third.

    Happy days eh?
