itchy (amadeusitchon) | 157 comments 53 all that remains, patricia cornwell, 21august

a former colleague sent me a couple of starbucks coupons so i visited the mall for them;
raided a couple of bargain bookstores in the process and picked up a couple of these (the 2nd's for my friend, may), cruel & unusual (sorry may, found only 1 copy), plus a few morrells, a farland here and a gilman there, and also a random deaver and riordan;
too bad the frap was only good for the drive back home

this one here's a happy camper

Sarah Suzy (gohawks) | 197 comments Love this! You're on a Scarpetta Roll! I need to pick up where I left off. I was got up at one point, waiting for the next book to be published. That way a few back, though. I'd love to know which are faves and whatnot. enJOY!

itchy (amadeusitchon) | 157 comments yeah, i've just started on cornwell's work this year and right now i'm definitely picking up steam;
i'm guaranteed up to cause of death for now;
maybe i can pick up more books as i go along

the last book's the best so far, as all serials should;
especially now that gault's looking to be a long term nemesis of sort


message 20: by Sarah Suzy (new)

Sarah Suzy (gohawks) | 197 comments Yes! Oh, I envy the point of this series that you are currently at and moving forward with! I would love to share any books that are beyond what you have! I will have to look at which ones beyond Cause of Death that I do have and let you know. Happy reading!
