Hearts In Atlantis

King, Stephen
Read while in hospital, maybe that's why I didn't get it. First part was good, seemed disconnected from rest of book.

Read:

3/2002

Nightmares & Dreamscapes

King, Stephen
A whole bunch of short stories that I'm thinking I may have read twenty years ago. Some pretty darn good ones in there. King's non-fiction piece about his son's Little League team was great, I don't even like baseball!

Read:

The Dark Tower volume 1 The Gunslinger

King, Stephen
Nicely written, of course, and not too long. I don't know if I want to read the rest of the series, though.

Under The Dome

King, Stephen
One day in Maine a small down goes under a bell jar?

Babe The Gallant Pig

King-Smith, Dick
Charming story of a pig. I loved it. Loved the movie, too.

QUOTE:

That'll do.

Chewing the Cud

King-Smith, Dick
The author tells his story of being a farmer for twenty years, then a teacher, and how he came to write his many books. Most poignant was the anecdote of Charlie the Budgerigar, at which I teared.

Hannah's Hope

Kingsbury, Karen
One of the Red Glove series. Inspirational stories are not my cuppa, but I must admit I teared up a tiny bit at the end.

Quotes:

"Nerves of steal, Meade." -- pg. 74 steel?
...packing M-16 machine guns... -- pg. 111 I thought they were assault weapons?
He'd been in more firestorms than he could count... -- pg. 113 Or maybe firefights?
He closed his eyes. God...you did this, didn't You? -- pg 148 I guess all the guys that died had no one who wanted to see them for Christmas.

Animal Dreams

Kingsolver, Barbara
Cosima goes back to her hometown of Grace, Arizona, to see how her elderly doctor father is doing. Except it seems to be a very dusty town, if you know what I mean. Very enjoyable.

Read:

11/2011

High Tide In Tucson

Kingsolver, Barbara
I was surprised I liked this author. Thoughtful essays on child raising, peace, ecology.

QUOTE:

Be careful what you give children, for sooner or later you are sure to get it back.

Prodigal Summer

Kingsolver, Barbara
DELETE THIS LINE Why is the next line in bold?

Another great story set in Applachia, three tales interwoven: A woman forest ranger, a widow, and a old farmer.:

Missionary family goes to Africa, does not have a swell time. Heart of Darkness? 546 p.

Read:

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid

Kinney, Jeff
Tales of a boy in middle school, with illustrations. Greg comes off as a bit of a self-centered jerk.

Read:

9/2012

The Clockwork Three

Kirby, Matthew J.
A busker, a maid, and an apprentice clockmaker join forces to help each other overcome their problems. Sort of steampunkish, what with the talking mechanical head and all. Good story!

Words I Had To Look Up:

carbuncle (pg. 29) -- A carbuncle is an archaic name given to any red cabochon cut gemstone. It's also a yucky skin infection!

Read:

10/2010

Grandmaster

Klass, David
High school boy gets invited to a father-son chess tournament, to his surprise. Very enjoyable read.

Read:

6/2014

Con Ed

Klein, Matthew
Kip Largo, ex-con/con man, has to run a con to save his son from a gambling debt. Pretty funny in parts, but the ending seems real noir, if I'm using the term correctly.

Read:

8/2007

A Piece Of The World

Kline, Christina Baker
A fictional biography novel about Christina Olson, of "Christina's World". Really very good.

Read:
