I'm happy that some of my TV shows are back on the air for the new season: The Closer, CSI:NY, and I've started watching The Newsroom (anyone watching that one?) .  Haven't seen any films lately,, would love to go to the movie theater and eat popcorn andn see something "riveting"... LOL

I'm reading "Gone Missing"  by Linda Castillo , the 4th in her Kate Burkholder (Amish Series).  I'm liking them .  I finished Susan Mallory's Barefoot Summer (first in the Blackberry Island series) , I liked that one too.

What about you ?

thia,

i love her books and have read just about everything she has written. my daughter in law read where she was starting her books signing tour in silverdale, wa which is close to where they live. so, she went and got her new book autographed for me.

when i was in washington a couple of years ago i went to port orchard, just to see what it was like because i knew she lives there. it is such a pretty little town.

Hi D, well you 've certainly been entertained this past week! LOL:
(No surprise there)

Years ago I read one Anne Siddons Book and just didn't care for it... can't even remember the name of it now..... but the one you are reading sounds good....

that is so true, suzan.

before we went to texas a pakistany author wrote to me and asked me to review his book. i read it and it was ok, not great and my review reflected that. now, he is writing me again wanting me to read his other two books. i told him i was sorry but i had too many other ones going. so, he writes me back and says i will contact you again in a couple of weeks to see if you will then. this guy just could not take a hint. lol
