Subject: RE: BS: Read any good books lately?
Have just read several of James Lee Burke. I love his descriptions of Louisiana and Montana and his characters. He wrote one of the best observations about Katrina that I have read in the last few pages of White Doves At Morning.

Just finished Blood Work by Michael Connelly. His stuff is always good.

Child of My Heart by Alice Mcdermott was wonderfully beautiful.

I am just about to read A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains by Isabella Lucy Bird. She was English and came through on horseback, alone, through the rocky Mountains of Colorado in the 1870s!

Also, just getting ready to read Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson. I loved his "The Mother Tongue" and expect we will enjoy this as well.
