I've got to turn in. I'm happy to say I finished the Vincenzi book - yeah! And read a bit of the third book I've had on my nightstand. I've been reading A Judgement in Stone over the past week. It's my first official Ruth Rendell book - as opposed to Barbara Vine - and it's magnificent. Really.

This read-a-thon has been an amazing amount of fun. Many thanks to the organizers and especially to the cheerleaders. Your comments and enthusiasm have been wonderful and I thank you all.

Good Night.

Congrats on participating in the read-a-thon! I can't wait to hear what you thought of the Rendell book. Isn't she great? Was it part of her Wexford series or standalone? I've only read some of her standalones but have really enjoyed them. Oddly enough the only Vine book I read I wasn't wowed by. I need to check out another Vine book one of these days.

Iliana, the Rendell book is a stand-alone - and I'm nearly finished. I'm sure you've told me, but I'm wondering which Vine you've tried.
