My response:
Thanks for saving all of my peeps, now help me grab our family videos and photos, while I find my nook, and grab as many signed books as I can!! While I cringe at losing books...i know I have insurance and can replace them all...but signed copys..eek gads they must be saved!

I loved What a Boy Wants, hope you'll like it, too.
And I need to get my hands on This is Not a Test! It sounds amazing.

Enjoy your books! :)

Btw, signed books are high on my list, too - of things to grab in case of fire.

I've heard good things about This Is Not a Test!

Wow a site tricky for dial-up. I always say comments from me are a compliment, can't flit between some pages! I want to introduce myself because it's rare to encounter 1 author in common, despite so many readers. I'm a fan of oldies and less known gems. My read-a-thon range is 1966-2011! http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2012/06/19/im-joining-a-read-a-thon/

Let me know how the Heather Graham novel is. I read at least 2 of hers: where the investigator's son first dies and the fantastic one in the Florida Keys. I recall a heritage house with a war reinactment, "Ghost Walk"? Perhaps 3.

Good luck with your read-a-thon! I'd love to participate but I think # 1 would kill me if I read for 4 days straight. I just finished Seduced by Blood a few weeks ago. Are you up-to-date on the series? This installment was the best so far in my opinion. Happy reading! :)

I thought the same thing about books - they can be replaced, but what about the signed ones?! I only have a few though, so it'd only take a second to grab them. I can't believe I forgot about pictures and videos, though. I said my harddrive, which has all my pictures from the last few years, but not childhood/family pics. Must save those!

I managed to get through Ten Miles From Normal quite quickly and am now reading I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You and am halfway through. I hope to get through it all tonight. I didn't put any adult books on my list, but I should be reading one of Laurie Londons books too!

Eye of the Tiger with Zombies definitely makes me laugh! Great choice!

Lol, we chose the same guy (Damon) :D
Love that photo of him on the beach!

Eye of the Tiger! Wow, what a terrific choice!! I loved Altiyan Childs version of it. And he looks a little like Damon :P

You are doing so well, I am nto going to be able to read today because I think I accidentally left my purse in my car so Geoff has my glasses and I am basically blind

All of your posts are great, and I am so glad you participated in my soiree!

It was fun chatting with at the Twitter party tonight! I remember the Eye of the Tiger days, I loved that song, and several others by Survivor, but it got old when our Band Director go hooked on it too and was trying to use it to inspire us. Of course that made it instantly uncool! lol! Have a great day tomorrow, you're doing awesome so far, much better than me and my piddly almost 2 books finished lol!
