Hello All,

I am finally back. My AT&T modem/router DIED! So I had no internet for almost a week. I had no idea that the internet had become such a necessary component of my life. I could not browse, could not pay my bills...I was becoming undone. Something strange happen, I started going through books like they were going out of style. I haven't had time to write nothing up, I just been tearing through them...even read a few of my BEA books. And that's saying something.

Right now I'm reading a book that I got from one of my past BEA, Magic Time by Doug Marlette. Its a book that centers on a white columnist from Mississippi and how the reopening of a federal civil rights case from the 60s is affecting his small town and his father. Very good book. Anyway, I've just come to the conclusion that I love books about the South. The South is so...so...MESSY! I find it totally fascinating. Murder just don't say murder without a tear and a twang in it. While I'm in the mood, hit me with a few titles I can dig into.
