    DJ and I have both read it and we loved it! It's heart-breaking, but wonderful.

    And I love the narrative device... so unique. Glad you enjoyed it kac!


    I'm still wandering around Hopeless Lake. Of course, I assume there won't be a problem just leaving 
    Spoiler:
    the stupid girl in the boat just hanging out on the beach... nope, no problem there whatsoever.
    And of course I 
    More Spoilery Goodness:
    just happen to always have a hair pin in the rubber band around my wrist that the world's most inept kidnapper never would have seen when he put the handcuffs on me. Nope.
     Other than that... it's perfectly logical.  Gah!

    Here I am, eating some grapes & reading luvtoread's beta experience...lol, I had to spit my grape out before I choked on it!!
    luvtoread, your beta reviews are like Esme's beta reviews!!!! Too funny!!  Laugh 

    I'm glad you mentioned his name, Esme. Bruce Campbell, I couldn't think of it to save my life. I think he's hilarious. I adored him in The Adventures of Brisco County. I also liked him in Burn Notice.

    Gosh, I'm tearing up again in reference to kac's post about The Book Thief. Such a wonderful book! I'm glad you enjoyed it, too, kac!!

    I want to see Maleficent. But I have to tell you, our movie theater around here is so dirty and I'd read somewhere you can get bed bugs from theaters. So I kind of freaked myself out in my mind.
    Yeah, I know, I'm weird.

    Ahhh Bruce...  what a guy! He's from right here in my neck of the woods. The 'burbs of Detroit... actually I think he's from Redford. He did a Q and A "concert" at a local theater last year, but either hubs or I were in the hospital, so we didn't get to go.


    I'm still bummed about that.  Cry

    A woman DH works with is a huge fan of Bruce. I think she's even met him in person!

    I heard he does a lot of speaking engagements.

    He does. I should look to see if he's coming back... it is his hometown after all.


    Speaking of celebrities... well sort of. We don't get too many of them in my area, so I was kind of surprised on Friday when hubs and I stopped for ice cream on the way home from a party and saw Amy Roloff from "Little People, Big World". 

    That's about as famous as it gets around here. LMBO!

    I was underwhelmed.

    Darn, I won't be in any hurry to play it then.  Rolling Eyes 

    I'm still not a fan of Jessica's Playlist. I came here to check the Beta Thread. Whilst watching Jessica's video & trying to stay focused, I think I caught the 2 CEs due out this week.
    One is the new Shadow Wolf Mysteries and the other is Dream Path: The Two Kingdoms.

    I could be wrong because my mind wandered again.  Rolling Eyes 

    Off to YT I go. Well, maybe I should stop at FB & check the video again, even though I really don't want to.  Cry

    Okay, Jessica's Playlist is better than before because when you click "See More" or whatever it is, you can get a written list.

    Shadow Wolf Mysteries: Under the Crimson Moon CE (Developer - ERS)

    Dream Path: The Two Kingdoms CE (Developer - Boolat)

    No problem, Genki!  Big smile 

    I'm so excited...I went and checked my emails & had a notification about my pre-order of Stephen King's new book "Mr. Mercedes".
    I'd forgotten all about it.  OH!

    I turned on my Kindle & there it was, like magic.

    You know, I was just sitting here thinking...it's possible to not even leave the house because of online shopping. My sister did most of her Christmas shopping that way. 
    She has a beautiful purse I was admiring & I asked her where she got it. I thought it would mean a trip to the Ashland Mall (in KY). Not a far drive, but still....
    She'd ordered it online. 
    Well, by the time you figure in the gas cost vs shipping & handling, it's about the same.

    Good for you djrum.  I do almost all my shopping online.  Sooo much easier and quite often the stores/shops have sales and offer price breaks on the shipping.  I'm actually spoiled with it.  I don't need to drive there and ride around looking for a parking spot, tramp thru the mall...lots of time spent just doing that.

    I've moved from Sydney to the country, so am no longer able to do as much, but I did ALL my shopping online, even groceries. It actually worked out cheaper for me, because I spent much less on 'impulse buys' (although you still do some), and I was having to get my shopping delivered anyway - I do miss it!

    I was one of those people who DID stay at home and want for nothing!  Big smile

    Hi Marinora!  Big smile You are so right. Looking for a parking place, dealing with all those people who want to leave their buggies in the too narrow aisles while they go wandering off somewhere...why, it's all a very big PITA!
    I'm stressed out by the time I get home.

    JustTheFacts, um...I've got to watch myself because I could go crazy buying things I don't need! It's just a click away & it's so easy!
    Clothes, shoes, and stuff like that, I would rather see in person and try them on. I'm very picky when it comes to clothes, seeing as I am an older woman (lol) & it seems like most clothes are aimed for the youngsters nowadays. That would probably explain why I haven't been clothes shopping in awhile. I dread it!
    Shoes must be comfortable or I refuse to wear them, no stilettoes for me, lol!!

    Thanks genki.  Everyone can just call me Marianne...my real name.  When I first registered here way-back-when, I wasn't allowed to use marianne cause it was already in use which is why the marinora, nora is my middle name.  But I prefer marianne and use it with other sites as genki knows.    Smile
