    I just read the Wikipedia on Olaf @Terry Page and it was so interesting. I guess I do like biographies a lot, because when I hear about someone, like Olaf, I want to know more about them;)

    I suppose I go through stages now, with different things I'll end up reading. I didn't used to read at all, even growing up I didn't truly like reading. Now I find myself reading more and more. After reading about Stapledon (as I mentioned in another reply already) I realized how interested I am in "real" people as well;)

    Yes I did notice that @Denise Happyfeet and thought it a coincidence, I may try and read it again, if I can sum up the enthusiasm to read anything :rolleyes:

    I'll have to change my answer slightly after the book I just finished early this morning! There was a little bit of language that I don't generally like, but the subject matter wasn't really like any cozies I've read in the past... starting with two decapitations. How am I going to sleep tonight?! Oh well, I did enjoy it, so...

    No mush in this one, but it's the first in a series of... five, I think, so no idea what happens later. I'm still deciding if I'll read #2. The scenes couldn't really get much more graphic after all. (Well, visual with the author's words, not really deeply descriptive, fortunately!)

    hehe Love your wit, @Denise Happyfeet :D I'm sorry to say that the heads were not able to be reattached :eek: but the perp was the least likely suspect so I looked past the blood, the whole time thinking "yep, yep, too easy, I know whodunnit." But they were innocent. Another reason why I'm glad I didn't go to law school or police academy. :rolleyes:

    If you like light mysteries, try Sharon Kahn's books, they are hilarious!

I'm always looking for "good reads" so thank you much, can't wait to try one out;) I think I've seen Sharon's name too, on my list of "cozies, or goodreads.com". Thanks much, Denise PS I can't think of the author but have you read any of the "food" mysteries, LOL?? The ones like, I don't know, like this one by Joanna Fluke? Can you imagine being "offed" by a chocolate chip cookie;( How depressing, LOL!!

    Ok, but don't eat any chocolate chip cookies while you are reading. You have to pay close attention when eating cookies, unlike the poor victim in my recommend, LOL!!

    @Denise Happyfeet , do you have Kindle? I have a reason for asking. :)

    And @Ruby Begonia , I see that Kindle only offers two Sharon Kahn ebooks, and they're $16.99 each.... so a bit pricey for my blood. They look very good, though!

    I have to look this up again, but I think Barnes and Noble, for my Nook Tablet, allows me to share each book one time. I have 103 books so far. So, if anyone has a Nook, or I think I can even share onto a kindle, I can so some "give-aways". I don't know how it works, so I'll check. There's a software called Calibre, that consolidates all your "library" for you, in one place. And there is a place on that, where folks have uploaded tons of free reads as well. So nice of people. I will show you below. I just found it the other day. It's a free program, and it will even convert Kindle books to epubs, or other format readable on Nooks. Also, here is a link to a calibre reading forum. Where it says e-books in menu, that is where you can download free books folks share with others;)
