    A woman was waiting at an airport one night,

    with several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shops, bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, that the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be. . .grabbed a cookie or two from the...

    I was checking out a thrift store to pass the

    time and way in the back under a rack I found a box of mystery novels someone donated. The ladies running the place let me have the lot for five bucks. They should get me through a long, hard winter.

    Jean Louis Fournier is one of my favourites.

    Translated into multiple languages. Very sober, humble, never ever asking for sympathy. He writes like a child which is deceptive. He writes about tragedies, real ones with a dry humour, he writes about his life. He writes simple without any ego. Yes he has an ego. Very...

    I am currently reading 'Rebecca' by Daphne du

    Maurier and I'm absolutely in love with it up to now, I love how the theme of identity runs right throughout the novel.

    I'm currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I never planned on reading it, but I had a male friend tell me it was a decent read and a cute story. Half way through the first book I have to agree so far it's cute and not really what I expected. For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...

    The Asimov Story

    OK, folks, you asked for it, so now I'll share it. The year was 1983.  My best friend at the time, Haig, was a huge Trekkie. This was just after the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" had come out, and there was a Trek convention (actually, I ...

    Hate it when this happens .

    .. I borrowed John Grisham's book The Testament from a co-worker. When I saw her in the hall this morning, I told her I would return the book tomorrow. She assumed that I finished, but I haven't. Before I could stop her, she described the final plot twists. Ugh! I hate when that...

    I just joined this group,

    very happy that I found it. I am an avid reader, I will read just about anything. My favourite authors to read are H.P. Lovecraft and Eager Allen Poe. I also read a lot of the classic science fiction from the 30's, 40's and 50's.

    But what's the point of being told to read a

    book by someone mid-discussion just to get their point? Now, if the book is FULL of so many interesting points and discussions, that's one thing, but sometimes a person just (lazily?) refers to a book. I like discussing with people who can think for themselves. If you can read...
