JEANíS READING Ė 2000 thru April 2001

The truth is that we get more comment from Jeanís book lists than all of my writing put together. I usually try to get it out in January, but not this year. So this list includes 2001 up to May. It will turn out to be an incomplete list, due to space limitations. You would think that all she does is read. Not so. As I write sheís out back with her chain saw working on next winterís wood! We donít read the same books. I may have read two or three on her list. None of the mysteries. My beat is the eternal mysteries. She likes her mysteries best because she gets to know the ending.
