Hi, thanks for your comments re: my review of The Beautiful Mystery. I'm afraid we're in the minority though. When I posted that review most of the others were just falling all over themselves praising the book and I had one member tell me I was just wrong! But we can be in this together. I hear her next book is due out at the end of August so we'll see what happens to Beauvoir then.

Ah ha! I'm almost 200 pages into the new Kingsolver and her butterflies and scientists--and am absolutely loving it. Came in to catalog it and saw you have it already. I keep thinking how Art on our Motley Fool shared forum might enjoy it-- Knoxville, Appalachia, mountain people with useful skills. It took me about 10 pages before I got in far enough for her to hook me but good. Usually she can do it in less time but I think it is because I was distracted thinking about my long tv TIVO list demanding attention.

I see you're reading Evanovich's Thanksgiving. Tonier than me. I've become obsessed with watching all of Hallmark's Christmas movies--especially loving the ones that make me well up and cry with happy endings. I printed out the whole list (they do each one 4 or 5 or more times between November 9 and December 25) and am taping them one after the other. Some are good. Some are so bad they are good. Sob.

Just to jump in uninvited, My favorite Lawrence Block book is When the Sacred Ginmill Closes. And 13 is a lucky number, especially this time of the year!
Hi Amy,
Great Rice review--you could write fiction reviews for Kirkus, or Kirkus as it was in its glory. I like your "Tried and Failed" category. I may copy you. I could start it out with the Rice book and then add the Laura Lippman book I tried last week--"And When She Was Good"--set in Baltimore too. I stuck with it about 73 pages and then quit. I've liked a couple of her Tess Gallagher books I think. I read a Jesse Stone, the one Parker's screenwriter put out last year. Killing the Blues. Enjoyable. Fast read--like reading a script--finished it in a morning--good though. I think I have to go back and read a bunch of Parker one of these days.

mmm I see Worster's life of John Muir in your new additions. Could that mean there is something new on civil service lists? How long does the list last?


Now that I've read your Lawrence Block link I'm ever more taken with his charm and versatility. Am anxious to read the Hit Men series with Keller.

Right now I'm working my way through M. C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series. I wasn't so sure what I thought with the first but by now (am on the 4th) I'm attached to both him, his dog, and all the Lochdubh villagers with a passion, and love hating his boss Lance completely. I should have read them in order, but oh well. There's a series Christmas one I want to order this weekend and maybe there will be a big lot of titles on ebay while I'm at it now that I'm committed and I can pick up some of the early ones.

I was thinking that one of these years I want to read holiday mysteries like you do, just spend a year doing nothing but that; I have oodles of holiday mystery bibliographies and it would be fun to hunt titles down and collect them, and then I also want to read all the mysteries set in San Francisco (thousands and thousands of course) but for now I only permit a mystery every other book so it will take a while. Speaking of location mysteries, that's another great thing about Block. I'm sure if I lived in New York City I would love all that New York detail talk. I love it and I haven't even been there. Imagine how quickly and well you would know the city if you had anything to do with public library branch life. And there is probably plenty of networking amongst the buroughs too--what a great vantage point.

Incidently, I tried the Anne Rice Wolf Gift set in SF and had to put it down after a few pages. She and I just don't hit it off, other than the Sleeping Beauty erotica, I seemed to be able to stick with that. I'll wait another decade and try again maybe.

Did you notice the picture of Baltimore Public Library that was on my profile space for a while. I think I'll put it back right now. How I miss grand old Main Libraries in grand old cities.

Hello Ms Kitty,

So glad to see you on here. I see you have a C. J. Box listed in most recent activity. I love Joe Pickett. I love Craig Johnson's stuff too and I see we have one (so far) in common. Re your collection: adding audio books is cool. In addition to print books I have added all music cds and scores and eventually will do feature film and documentary dvds and videos. You be able to see everyone's collections easily. I'll look forward to seeing your collection as you add material. I'm inviting you to be a friend!
