        Lucky so and so's!  Not to mention all those bookstores!  <salivating>

        <guilty snicker> I don't watch soap operas because I can never keep 
track of all the plots.  I've read a few trashy romances in my time, though.  
And I like Jilly Cooper's 'name' books (Imogen, Harriet, Prudence, Emily etc) 
because I'm a sucker for romance, and they're really funny--a winning 
combination.  There, that's my shameful secret out in the open for everyone 
to scoff at!  Go ahead!  I'll still read them on a dreary rainy Sunday!
