Must think of a good word and how to incorporate that into a similar list like my Amazon Wall Bangers one ;)

Lol :D Oddly enough, the fact that a Kindle must have a delete button escaped me entirely!

I'm starting a thread. I must have a name so that I can start a list. Left arrow doesn't cut it.

Mine too! If you haven't had the opportunity to visit Baltimore's Inner Harbor, you should. They have done a terrific job with the waterfront area and the Barnes and Noble is amazing!! Camden Yards isn't half bad either if you're into that type of thing :D

Just finished reading 'Rebus' by Pieter Aspe. He's a Belgian crime author and about the most successful one of this century. We are a small area, so the reading public doesn't amount to millions, and he's sold over a million copies already. That's huge in view of our situation.
Before that I read 'Secrets to the grave' of Tami Hoag and before that one of my all-time favorites: 'Mara, daughter of the Nile' by Eloise McGraw.

I've finished "Inside Oscar: 1927 to 1991: The Unofficial History of the Academy Awards" by Mason Wiley & Damien Bona (979pgs, 1993)*. Whew that took me a long time! I started it over a year and half ago, made to some where in the 300s, and then started it again in mid-April and finally finished it!

A good book, interesting, and now I have to eventually get the 2nd one that goes a few more years. I wish they had a newer one to cover the 2000s!
