    Not to put any pressure on you, but I've gotten several fan emails ( for fan mail!) complaining that BitH kept people up till the wee hours on a work night.

    I don't apologize for that.

    It's good so far.

    the only crime is getting caught.

    Just finished I Am Charlotte Simmons the other day. Another great one written by Wolfe, though a little longer than I would have liked.

    I'm now 50 pages into A Fraction Of The Whole by Steve Toltz. Very funny so far.

    Letters of a Woman Homesteader by Elinor Pruitt Stewart.

    It's free on Kindle and it's a compilation of letters written by a young widow about her life in Wyoming, homesteading a portion of land with her two-year-old. Without being flowery she paints a wonderful picture of the land and life, and also shows an amazing independence for a woman in the early 1900s.

    That's a fun one.

    For me, Outlaws by George V. Higgins and The Given Day be Dennis Lehane. We'll see if I can handle two novels at once.

    I'm SO late to the party, but I got beautiful copies of the entire James Bond series for a song. I decided to get through them this year, and am currently reading Casino Royale by Ian Fleming. It's much better than I was expecting.

    The Tommyknockers- Stephen King.

    I only have a little over a hundred pages to go. Next on the list will be either It by Stephen King, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King, or Psycho by Robert Bloch.

    A Thief of Time - Tony Hillerman

    Reading in preparation for the AW Western March Prompt and the off-site Hillerman contest it is preparing for. Good stuff so far.
