The Gal Herself

I read The Bastard in the 1990s and remember absolutely nothing about it. (Except the cover.) I don't know if that's more a reflection on the book, or me.


That IS a lot of pages!


I read The Dome, pretty good! Saw a piece on TV about Dean Koontz recently...interesting man and back story!


Oh, I'd like to get to the new King and Koontz books--I didn't know they were out. Thanks.


Sometimes I wish we could hold a book to our head and mind meld with it like Dr. Spock.


If you're going to read 'Under the Dome' do it quickly - I just read yesterday that this is being made into a TV series.

Or, you could just skip reading it & wait until it's on the tube.

I haven't read that Koontz book yet, though I've read several others by him - the Odd Thomas books being my favorite & the Christopher Snow books running a close second. The only problem I've found with his books is that I go through them too quickly - his stories are such fast reads.

True story: I first learned the word 'Bastard' when I was very young & saw a copy of 'The Bastard' on my mother's bookshelf. I didn't understand why she told me to watch my tongue when I asked her, "Mom, who's the bastard?".


I'm sure I've read some of these. Just popped in to say hullo! (waving!) Life has been full and challenging. Good to see you're still blogging away. :)
