I just had dinner with the author and got my signed copy with dedication, so I'm going to start reading it tonight. I've read bits of it as it was being written. Robert W. Godwin - Author - Home Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Alias Baby Girl

He's working on the sequel now. I've got the first few chapters of that to read, too

Ok, I finished The Guardian. It started out reading like a romance novel and ended like a thriller. Good stuff.

I finished ABG last night. I'd have finished it night before last, but I HAD to put it down and read something I'd read ten or more times already to get chilled out enough to go to sleep. If I hadn't, I'd have stayed up all night reading it.

Bob really nailed the good old fashioned PI novel -- but managed to write it in a way that's not out of date.

I love Nicholas Sparks books. And I think I will be going to the book store right after work to pick that book up!

I just finished the latest book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charmaine Harris: Dead In the Family

And guess what I'm getting for my birfday?! A NOOK! And I learned it's already complete with 9 books on my favorite racehorses and horseracing and a few others. (shhh....don't let hubby know I found it.....)

currently Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller and the eighth book in the Bone graphic novel series by Jeff Smith, Treasure Hunters. i've become ridiculously addicted to graphic novels lately.

I read Mommywood by Tori Spelling last night. Haha. Someone from my mother's group gave it to me.

I'm reading "Crimes of Passion" - it's a true crime book and it's awesome!

Currently working on "Cemetery Dance" by Preston and Child. The story is pretty good if you can get past the obvious point that these authors are in love with their very impressive vocabulary. I've reached for my thesaurus a couple of times

I started reading the Sookie Stackhouse series after I got one from the library and realized it was too far along and I didn't know what had gone on and was too intrigued to stop.

These books are awesome!
