    I'm reading the Princess Bride and Demon in the Freezer (which I thought was about anthrax but so far is mostly about small pox ). Either way it's fascinating. I started We by Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel and it's not what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be some feminist manifesto but it's more about principals to live your life by (for women) and there's things like gratitude journals and meditation. I don't doubt that my life could use a little more introspection but it's a little much for me and I don't expect to finish it.

    I just finished The Tommyknockers and In a Dark, Dark Wood.

    I am reading Zlata's Diary and rereading The Dark Half. I am also reading Wild.

    I started Bryan Cranston's memoir, A Life In Parts. Crackling writing style, I like it.

    Oh, I really enjoyed his book!

    I'm just finished reading Never Broken by Jewel. Also some crappy book about great Soup recipes (they're not great and most have ingredients not available on the North American continent.)
    I just started The Rainbow Comes and Goes - by Anderson Cooper and his mother Gloria Vanderbilt.

    I also started Throw Out 50 Things - an interesting looking book about decluttering.
    I can't think of anything witty to say for my signature line.

    Kindle is up and running and I figured out all the changes between models. I've ordered a lot of samples to play with

    I finally read this a couple of months ago, and was not bowled over by it. I have the first three books in the series, and will probably get around to reading the next two at some point, but I'm not in any hurry.

    I am looking forward to the movie, though!

    I read the Gunslinger several years ago and it was okay. Last summer I read the Drawing of the Three and loved it. It was what I expected from SK. So then I read The Wastelands and was back into not loving it territory . I started Wizards and Glass but didn't finish it. I guess Drawing of the Three was the anomaly .

    Finished Demon in the Freezer and loved it. Moved on to Hostages to Fortune: The United Empire Loyalists and the Making of Canada by Peter C Newman. I finished The Princess Bride and was somewhat underwhelmed if I'm being honest. I just blew through Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I love her - she makes me stay up late though.
