  1. By the way Nightwatch went beyond a trilogy to a tetralogy.

    The first book was just great, the second one started out weaker and ended strong and the last two books were also very enjoyable.

  2. I keep meaning to read them. Rose actually did because the library has them. She liked them well enough but thought the translation was faulty because it used a lot of words that would've been more appropriate to the 1980s.

  3. I would like to hear the Cabin on Kettle Creek or the Louis L'Amour you mentioned.


I can't hear you ...
