  7. Its funny that you should mention Kurt Vonnegut as according to the I Write Like site this is the author that I write like.

    1. Glad your son liked Vonnegut, my daughter liked reading his books when she was in high school.

    1. Alyce, believe it or not, neither do I, but I have a few of his books and he almost seems like he has a cult following, so I'm intrigued.

  24. These both look good. Enjoy!

  25. I have the Forgotten Waltz waiting for me - my Mom read it and reported that it is good. I heard the author speak at Symphony Space last year and it was really interesting to hear about what prompted her to write the book, etc.

  26. My husband read the Vonnegut bio and will be doing a guest review. He thought it was quite good, had some surprises and a few dry parts.
