Commentary: My Forth Twenty Books

I didn't expect to get here so early. I expected to cross this barrier around September 1st, but I've been reading a lot of short books lately. That, of course, ups the amount of books read. I've also encountered quite a few books I was simply unable to put down even though it was three in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Angela and the Broken Heart (Book 79 of 100)

This is the last Angela book. The author died, you see. So Angela is stuck at somewhere between 7 to 8. I'd love to update Angela. Turn her into an adult; she'd be a college freshman now, as she ages one year for every two. In my story freshman Angela would rediscover her beloved Eddie Bishop, who... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review Every Living Thing (Book 78 of 100)

This is yet another James Harriott addition. It also counts for my set outside the US book. In this tale, we learn about his two outdoor cats Ollie and Ginny, his "big win" at the football (soccer) pool (which turned out to be more like a rumoe) and his two, young vet assistants (including one who...

Book Review The Good Guy (Book 75 of 100)

The Good Guy by Dean Koontz is not the sort of book I normally read. It's scary! It is the story of Tim, an ordinary (or so it seems) guy who is mistaken first for a hitman and then for the hirer by the actual hitman. Tim is neither; he's a mason with a secret. He's one of those guys who just can't... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Front Porch Rocking Chairs (Book 74 of 100)

At only 1 disc of 54 minutes, Front Porch Rocking Chairs by Kathryn Tucker Windham was the shortest book I’ve ever read. I counted it as the memoir category in the library program, but it feels like cheating. I got the audiobook from my club today and returned it today also. The weirdest thing was...
