I started reading ~ I'll be Watching You~ tonight by M. William Phelps.  This author gives you a lot of words for your buck ( or 6.99 or 1 credit)  The book is so thick that I can barely hold it with one hand.  500 pages.  I just finished ~Thrill Killer~  by Pingitore and it was only 305 pages.  I really liked Phelps first book called Perfect Poison ( I think) and then he had a couple of books that I thought were so..so.  He does seem to be one of the few prolific true crime writers these days.  This book has an odd beginning..so I hope it starts getting good..it's heavy :)

I just received that book by Phelps today.   Right now though,  I am reading the book I requested from you.  It is a really interesting story.

I know I have read that book, but I have to see the pictures to remember what it is about.  Right now I'm reading "Mortal Danger" by Ann Rule and  I feel disappointed.  I still like it when she writes a book on one story, not 3-4.  If I had to rate this book so far, and I'm almost finished I would give it a 3 out of 5.   Cathy-0

I haven't read that one yet Carolyn.  It was one of the doubles that I had.  I made my husband type out a spread sheet for me so I could see what books I had not read yet..and that was one where I had 2 copies. 

Cathy..I haven't started Rule's book yet.  I do enjoy short stories but her books have been hit or miss with me lately.  I love some and dislike others.

Besides reading true crime ( phelps right now)..I am listening to Scarpetta ( the new Cornwell book)...not enough hours in the day for my reading and listening pleasure.:)
