White Lines by Tracy Brown

Having a love/hate relationship with this one, and I've been on it about 2 months. The parts I hate ate when she writes like me, way too wordy. Though it's how I write, I am an excellent self editor. Idk what she called her self doing with all these words Angry. So unnecessary!

Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: A guide to stress, stress-related diseases, and coping by Robert Sapolsky. He's a neuroscientist who writes engagingly. Entertaining and informative, it's a great read so far.

Stephen King "The Dome".  It sucks.  It's so hard to read some of his books.  The only thing I really liked of his was Salem's Lot.  That scared the crap out of me.

Reading Mama Dearest, Geek listening to Gone with the wind.


Posted By: Goodyearwriter
Date Posted: Dec 24 2010 at 11:15am
I'm listening to Gone with the wind (my personal holiday tradition) However, at the same time I just finished reading E. Lynn Harris's Mama Dearest. I wanted to mention, I don't know how ill he was toward the end of his life. But he Mama Dearest seemed to be written as closure to the Yancy/Basil series--a gift to the fans of this series because Mr. Harris left us not wondering what happened to those characters. Reading the acknowlegements, I became very sad, he'd just changed publishers and was looking forward to a happy life with his new publisher and editors.Cry We'll miss him.
