    Numero uno is my book. I loved it so much that I bought copies for all of my friends.

    I liked Blow Fly too, which is unusual because I'm not a Cornwell fan.

    The rest I have't read - I must get to it!!

    Cornwell lacks a flow (and editing) that others in her genre, or out of it, have. Someone like Tami Hoag doesn't have a storyline that is as technical and expertly informed, but writes a saucier page turner.

    Wow, you read a lot. I could never eat that many so quickly!

    You could nibble here and there to leave your mark! I have faith in your little abilities!

    Get yourself a copy of David Sedaris' "Barrel Fever" on tape or CD. He and Amy Sedaris are hi-freakin-larious reading the stories, which if read in the voice in my head, probably wouldn't have been as funny.

    I especially liked "You Can't Kill the Rooster."

    I read David Sedaris in college, I must not have been that impressed, because I don't remember it. I must say I'm not impressed with your reading list, but I'm a guy.

    One of my standard recommendations is Sula by Tony Morrison, it's just a little novella, but very big in scope.

    I wasn't trying to be impressive.

    God you are a simpleton...Sedaris is a poor excuse for Augusten Burroughs
