I missed your post re: Dan Brown... yes I have finished both the code and now Angels and Demons - I preferred the latter! The Alienist.. who is this by? I'm in serious withdrawl. I'm trying to read the Satanic Versus... hope this won't bring bad luck my way - has the fatwa been lifted off of Rushdie? Anyway - I find his writing too flowery and I miss DB!
The worst of it is that I now have to wait however long for the next Harry Potter too!
I'm depressed - I had finally gotten back into reading... I read too damn fast!
