Re: Stieg Larsson

I just finished reading both of his books too...and I cannot wait for the new one to come out! Not only are they great books, but with the "Queen's English" and the Swedish references, it kept me on my toes looking things up!!

Re: Steig Larsson

I think the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is one of - if not the one - best books I've ever read.  His last book in the series, "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornest's Nest," is out in Europe. My husband and I vacationed in Ireland last November and I couldn't resist picking it up.  It was absolutely fabulous and totally tied up all the lose ends!  It will be released in the States in May.

Re: Steig Larsson

I read the first when it came out but haven't read the others. I plan to do that this spring (if it ever comes).

Re: Community Room

For those of you who were a part of FL when we read The Postmistress by Sarah Blake you may want to know that it is  at #8 on the New York Times bestseller list again this week, as well as #5 on the IndieBound list (taken from the bookmarks magazine website).  I very much enjoyed The Postmistress and would recommend it to those of you who haven't read it.

 

Wow!  First time I've every tried adding a book image and it worked.

 

I'm currently listening to Vanished by Joseph Finder.  Good mystery.

Re: Community Room

This little article from 1944 might interest some readers. Also, if you have an interest in the historical maps of the area in which the book takes place, visit this link too.

I think that today, with 24/7 news coverage, very little would be secret for long.

A Reliable Wife 

 

Did anyone read this book yet? I wanted to know what you thought? It definitely has got mixed reviews. It's a love it or hate it type of book!

 

I am hunting and pecking today since I tripped over the dog and chipped my shoulder bone! Very painful!

Dial H for Hitchcock (Cece Caruso Series #5) 

 

Over the weekend I read Anne Stuart's SILVER FALLS and started Susan Kandel's DIAL H FOR HITCHCOCK, It's really good but I set it aside for the moment because I'm reading THE POACHER'S SON now.

They are making it into a movie! Definitely a story that doesn't leave your mind too quickly!

Re: Community Room

It is hard to read a book one-handed - you have to juggle the book in order to turn the page!

Re: Community Room

I read the first two and am eagerly awaiting Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I love the quirky, twisted personality of Lisbeth, and her sense of what justice is. I'm finding that I know much less about Scandinavia than I thought and even imagined!

I also enjoy having to work a bit to piece things together.
