Bag Of Bones

King, Stephen
Writer guy goes back to stay at his vacation retreat after his wife dies. Wierd stuff happens. Mostly pretty good book.

QUOTE:

Johanna once said that if I was drowning at Dark Score Lake, where we have a summer home, I would die silently fifty feet out from the public beach rather than yell for help... But if someone asks me, "Are you all right?" I can't answer no. I can't say help me.

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:

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.

High Tide In Tucson

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.
