    I am STILL reading True Evil by Greg Iles.

    I snack on books instead of devouring them. It's not uncommon for me to read a couple of chapters and not pick it back up again for a month or so. I started reading this in February and I'm currently on page 401.

    The first book I read by Little was The Walking and I really enjoyed it. There have been a few other ones that were good but some that I just I rolled my eyes through. I haven't read Saul in years. He became too juvenile for me when I was around 12.:p

    Maybe I'm revisiting my childhood; it is a horror novel, after all. :p

    I just finished Paula Deen's latest book, her autobiography. It was a wonderful story.

    I'm currently reading Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace revisited. So far, so good.

    My last was 'The Faithful Spy' By Alex Berenson .This kid works as a reporter for the hated New York Times but writes a great and believable spy story .He will eventually be as good as Frederick Forsyth and will pen a novel of the quality of 'The Afghan' one day !

    Just another case of a petty celebrity playing at politics and having it hurt her career.When will these critters ever learn to keep their mouths shut about their politics ? They are always sure to offend someone !

    I call Saul's stuff Horror Light. But he IS a good writer. I am not gonna beat a dead horse about Little...I think he has more than just about 3 good books, but whatever. It is his prerogative he is wants to espouse his moonbattiness is his novels...King has been doing it for years...again, whatever. I ignore it and still pretty much enjoy his books. On the other hand, the late-great Richard Laymon wrote novel called Come Out Tonight where he had three characters discuss how great Rush Limbaugh was...and to be honest, I can let a few comments go and ignore them...but if an entire novel centered around bashing conservatives, I would be the first one to stop reading it.
