I'm reading (for the second time) a million little pieces, by James Frey. He may have embellished...but it's still a good read.

I am reading "Goodbye Dearest Holly" by Kevin Wells. Its the story of Holly & Jessica, who were murdered by the school caretaker, Ian Huntley in August 2002.

Its written by Holly's father, and describes in very graphic detail about the 2 weeks they spent looking for the two girls, the media interest, his frustration with the police and how details were leaked to the press before the families had been told and his anger at being accused of their abduction himself. I've just got to the part where the girls bodies have been found, and Ian Huntley has been arrested. The book then goes on to the court trial.

"A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole
Funny funny novel.
The author suicided after becoming depressed about not being able to get anyone to publish his book. His mum persevered and this is the result. Hard to believe that this was 'passed-over' by so many publishers.
It won a 'Pulitzer Prize' in '81 even though it was written in the '60's.

Just finished reading Michael Palin's "Diaries: The Python Years 1969-1979." Not the most exciting book in the world - good for bedtime reading - but some interesting insights into what went on behind the scenes in the lives of the six brilliant comedians whose collective is one of the best loved comedy troupes of last century.

Am going to be sorting through the stacks of books in my basement to find some thrillers ripe for re-reading over the fall and winter, preferably with a large mug of tea and a roaring fire...

"SCOTT WALKER The Rhymes Of Goodbye" by Lewis Williams.

This is a book solely about Scott Walkers recording career from his days with The Walker Brothers to the present day as a solo artist. I love it because there's no mention of his private life whatsoever, it's all about the music.

Lately, all I have been reading is children's books. ;o) The last one I read was Horton Hatches the Egg by DR. SUESS. Not sure who is enjoying the books more me or my children. :o)

I need to find a book for me again. The last book I did read was called Maternity Ward by Susan Stanley - I am fascinated with birth so when I saw this book I just had to read it. It was written from the experience of the Author spending time in a real Maternity Ward.

classic poetry

LVIII

And lately, by the Tavern Door agape,
Came shining through the dusk an Angel Shape,
Bearing a vessel on his Shoulder;and
He bid me taste of it; and 't was--the Grape!

LIX

The Grape that can with Logic absolute
The Two-and-Seventy jarring Sects confute:
The sovereign Alchemist that in a trice
Life's leaden metal into Gold transmute:

etc etc

LXIII

O threats of Hell and Hopes of Paradise!
One thing at least is certain, -This Life flies;
One thing is certain and the rest is Lies;
The Flower that once has blown forever dies.

etc.

Edward Fitzgerald
