  1. I've got A Brief History of the Dead sitting on my piano bench. Someday, I'm going to get to that book!!! Glad you loved it.

  2. I've got A Brief History of the Dead as well, still waiting ro be read. I keep meaning to read it. Why is there never enough time to read?

  3. Nancy - I think it's one you'll enjoy. Did your son ever read it? What'd he think?

    Margaret - If you figure that out (why there isn't enough time to read), please let me know! I'll be lucky if I have one book to review this month! Busy, busy!
