    I've just finished reading " One Hundred Names " by Cecelia Ahern. Not only was it a page-turner, I eventually got so that I could not put it down and finally finished it at about three o'clock this morning.
    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.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    I can't believe my luck. I started Cecilia Ahern's " Postscript " yesterday.

    Sometimes I'll start a book and within a few pages, it pulls me or it doesn't, and I'll decide there and then, to read on or not. Other times, I find that I'm being drip-fed, there is barely enough to keep me interested, it's hanging by a thread and I read on eventually wanting see it out but this "Postscript", right from page one, was, is, a page-turner. I get the feeling that, well I'm sure, it's a follow-on from the one that preceded it, " PS, I Love You" but well, I'm in now so never mind.

    Brilliant brilliant brilliant read.

    Thought I would check that out, Dither. Cecilia Ahern's genre is listed as 'Romance, young adult'. So you are young at heart after all.

    Mr.Buckle,

    I don't know about Celia Ahern's genre, and I wouldn't have put " postscript " in the "young adult, romance " section. Basically it's about one young woman who, having nursed her husband through the final stages of cancer, being left a series of letters, from him, with instructions for them to be read, one every month for a year. She then ends up helping others with terminal illnesses do the same. Is that romantic? Yes ? Maybe ? I suppose.

    And I was born old.

    Worth Dying For by Lee Child (a Jack Reacher novel)
    Reacher investigates a disappearance in nowhere Nebraska as the godfathers/mafia of the place attempt to take him out. Great so far and knowing Lee Child, it'll stay that way.

    Imagine That by Manuel Luz
    Discusses the role of Christians in the arts. Also really good so far.

    How to Talk to Anyone: 62 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships by Leil Lowndes (audiobook)
    Feels a little outdated and a tad gimmicky and even manipulative at points but there might be enough good to it for my curiosity to get through all 62 points. I don't really care for the way the author reads, either, and if anything kills my curiosity too quickly to get through it, that will be it. Still, hiking through it so far because talking to people is not my forte. At all.
    We'll burn that bridge when we come to it.

    A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver

    I need to learn some fundamentals of writing poetry if I ever want to be poet laureate.
