    because I can't decide which choice to make.  

    I agree with you on many of your favorites, have some of my own, and couldn't begin to select any in poetry, sci-fi, and plays.

    I finished some pretty good books this week.  The librarian recommended Suspect by Robert Crais, so I started that on Monday and read it in one day.  It was very good.  Our library sells donated books for a very nominal fee and I picked up one by Karen Slaughter, Fractured, and enjoyed it.  Now I'll return it to the library and they can resell it.  I love my library!

    I'm reading the biography of Hitler by John Toland.  I'm finding it more interesting as I continue reading.  It seems I only knew a little about the man - he was more complex than I realized.  

    I picked up a book at the library called Prophet of Bones by Ted Kosmatka.  At first it seemed more like science fiction, which is not something I usuallly enjoy.  It's one of those books that is really well researched, though, and I am finding it very interesting.  I would recommend it.
