I think if he had, it would have been a totally different outcome. Isn't that the only book that Harper Lee wrote, that was actually published?

I do believe that you do be correctomundo!!

It is a fantastic book!!!

James Patterson is another fantastic author - I'm kinda mild though and go more for Nicholas Sparks. And who was it mentioned Dean Koontz? Oh, boy - makes me weird out.

I said Dean Coonz but apparently spelled it very wrong. I read those books with my Dad. We share book expenses that way. I just got him into J.D. Robb which is Nora Roberts Alias. He won't read Nora Roberts but is clueless about her alias. Hehehe.
