Janet Beasley I'm reading Beartown by Fredrik Backman. Just getting started but the plot and characters are unfolding at the right pace. Temps are scheduled to hit 100 today in Austin. You'll find me somewhere with great air conditioning and reading this book about a town's love for the game of hockey! Brrr.

I just finished that one recently. I really liked it, but found it very different than his previous books. The ending was powerful. Enjoy and stay cool!

Need to read the books- seen the first & 3rd movies (Divergent & Allegiant). Hoping Allegiant in book form is better than the movie was. How do you like the books so far?

I read through all of them and that was my take-away too. Hopefully someone can shed some light on what it means to be a confused novelist. Please? Too funny.

Tracy Griffin I'm reading on STRANGE THE DREAMER, SHAMAN'S CROSSING, NIGHTHAWK, and POINT OF CONTACT


Zombieslayer/Alienhunter {comatose with common sense} The Last Magician seems mildly interesting. Might keep an eye on it for now.
Beyond that, nothing here for me.
