OT - Books
Flying to Calgary for the weekend and need something light to read on the plane (coming and going) - about 3 hours each way. Any suggestions?

Hope you all are enjoying your New Year and your new Resolutions - I've stuck to mine so far. No chocolate and nothing to eat after supper. It was easier to quit smoking for heaven's sake!

I sneak in occasionally and read your posts - then leave with a big sigh and wish I had a cruise booked. Maybe one of these days!?! ;-}

Have a great week everyone. I miss you all!!

Nice to hear from you joelin! Nora Roberts has a new trilogy out - the Key series - Key of Light, Key of Knowledge and Key of Valor (all are paperbacks) - a really good read!

Any of Patricia Cornwells stuff. May not be light , but engrossing and makes the time fly..(no pun intended)..;-)

What are you coming to Calgary for? If you have any free time, I'll be working the weekend. You could stop in and say hi. I'd be happy to buy you a drink.

Joelin, I hope your bringing your fur-lined shoelaces to Calgary - It's COLD out there!
As for the book, I'm still recommending "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham. It has a bit of a cruise theme too!

Lisa -

If you like Nora Roberts, try going to (a day without french fries). Nora is a visitor there.

And her books under JD Robbs are excellent too!
