I just started Amy Coe’s “The Love She Left Behind” after that it’s going to be “Girl Waits With Gun” by Amy Stewart followed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s “Mycroft Holmes.” I’ve also got Louise Penny’s “The Nature of the Beast” and Thomas Blatt’s “From the Ashes of Sobibor: A Story of Survival.”
I read “Date-Onomics” for a freelance assignment – my interview with John Birger hasn’t yet run. I also read “The Global War on Morris” and look forward to interviewing Congressman Steve Israel about it early this week.

So instead of writing very angry, write furious. Rather than very bright, try dazzling. Instead of very rude, how about vulgar? Trade very hot for scorching and perhaps very loved for adored.
