Pippin, that book made me hate Stephen King for a few moments, until I read Cell, then all what right with the world!

Not got to that yet Reg, just at the end of WWII - Gielgud's having a "gay" old time touring Asia.

I have skipped to the bit where he was caught "cottaging". A nice letter to "Nelly" Coward thanking him for his "support!!!

Oh they're a rum lot these theatricals and no mistake.

Finally got a copy of Silver Shoes. Am halfway through it and will probably finish it this evening. It is quite good!

WHY do I keep giving chick-lit a chance?

I just finished Firefly Lane.
Do all chick-lit books end the same??? Seriously. Enough.


uncageg, LOVE the avitar!!

I'm reading American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld (she wrote Prep). I have to say, I am thoroughly enjoying it!

Thanks clever! That was taken on June 9th at the opening night party here in Denver.

I just finished reading "Wishful Drinking" by Carrie Fisher last week. Not sure what will be next now that I am on this reading roll! After Silver Shoes I may have to pick up The Half Blood Prince" to jog my memory before the movie opens later this summer.

Just finished reading Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. It's just about the funniest book I've read in months, with even more snigger-provoking moments than Angels and Demons. Can't work out if I want to move onto Deception Point or give the Brown a rest, so am rereading Henry V while I decide. re: Currently Reading (Take 2)

Just finished Silver Shoes. I didn't want it to end! A VERY good read. This book would make a fabulous movie!

I tried to read Angels and Demons twice and just couldn't get into it. Maybe I should try again. It has been sitting here for 3 years!

Because I apparently can't focus on one storyline at a time, I'm reading the second book of Stephen King's Dark Tower (Again), the first book in Lee Child's Jack Reacher series and the newest book in the Sookie Stackhouse series that the HBO show True Blood is based on.

The first time I read them I only got through Wizards and Glass because that was all that had been published at the time. This was before Roland visited him in that hospital room and told him to finish the series. So I don't actually know how the whole thing ends yet.

I've only read the first of the DARK TOWER series and was kinda bored all the way through so I stopped. Is it worth reading the rest if I was bored during the first?

The Gunslinger moves very slowly but it's necessary to set up what follows. The rest of the books read much more quickly.

I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series before the Half Blood Prince film comes out next month.

Right now I'm on the 4th book, Goblet of Fire.

I just started The Inner Game of Tennis, by W. Timothy Gallwey.

I've been interested in picking up something by Louise Erdrich, has anyone read any of her books? She was the speaker at my brother's graduation this past weekend and she was absolutely FABULOUS.

I just finished Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis. I loved it and read it straight through in a day and a half. Very quick read. Amazing but INCREDIBLY depressing. I can't believe he was only twenty or so when he wrote it. I'm curious about the film adaptation.

Next up. The Bell Jar...I know, I know. Someone hand me the Zoloft.
