Re: Building Iphone Apps With Html, CSS, And Javascript (11:12pm April 17, 2010):

If I cannot get into a book, will either put it back for a later time, skim thru it or will only just not finish it, if the story is not doing it for me or the characters are not likable. I usually start skimming only if I want to finish it and am not caring for at the point where I am almost finished reading it anyway.

Re: Small Change (8:26am March 26, 2010):

Great post - Yes, most important - will I use it!

There a lots of adorable kids - Dex is a hoot from The Nerd Who Loved Me by VL Thompson.

Re: The You I Never Knew (5:15pm March 14, 2010):

I prefer a good laugh. But every once in awhile a good cry is good. I cry at the Hallmark Commercials.

Anything by Nicholas Sparks makes me cry, Three Wishes by Barbara Delinsky, Home Again by Kristin Hannah, and Sarah's Child by Linda Howard - all wonderful hanky books.

As for funny books anything by Erin Mccarthy, particularly The Pregnancy Test, SEP's Nobody's Baby But Mine, Aint She Sweet, Kate Angell's baseball series, Deirdre Martin's Hockey series, Rachel Gibson - all these wonderful authors make me laugh.

I am sorry for whatever you are going thru and hope everything turns out better.

Re: Shades of Twilight (8:11pm September 27, 2009):

I love going to booksignings and have been lucky to have such funny and wonderful speakers as Nora Roberts - yes, Nora, Barbara Delinsky, James Patterson who said he can write anywhere and more than one book at a time, Nicholas Sparks, Dave Barry, & Erin Brocovich. I feel like I am forgetting someone. Yes, Suzanne Brockmann also a great speaker and very generous in giving out prizes at the signing. I was supposed to be somewhere else that day, but plans got cancelled so I got to see Suz speak.

Re: The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society (1:21pm July 5, 2009):

What I did for Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I always enjoy her books and she doesnt write very many. There was not much of a plot and the characters I found to be very annoying - the heroine put up with a lot of nonsense from the hero. So sorry to have say this, but you asked...LOL.

Re: The Secret Life of Bees (12:56pm February 8, 2009):

I also try to read the book first as it is always better. Message in a Bottle - the movie cannot compare to the book which I thought was awesome.

I did not read The Memory Keeper's Daughter but the lifetime movie was fantastic - the ending was gutwrenching. I just loved Phoeboe.

Re: Made To Be Broken (12:54pm February 8, 2009):

I devoured the Virgin Books too - I read the first 3 as I knew the Christmas one was coming out soon and I was not disappointed - am so glad there will be several more. Have to get my hands on the lastest.

I am starting the lastest Catherine Anderson book, just finished The Girl Most likely by Susan Donovan - enjoyed it also.

Re: Whisper of Warning (7:45pm January 24, 2009):

Re: Kissing Games Of The World (7:24am December 30, 2008):

Really enjoyed reading your tale of writing. It amazes me; many authors say, their characters speaks to them, ruling or running the book. I think anyone who can write a "lie" to make money has talent. LOL.
