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.

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.

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.
