Things that Go BUMP in my Mind

Knitting, stitching, reading, gardening, cooking--I have no time for any of it.

Finally!

Someone who agrees with me that Dan Brown
couldn't write his way out of a paper bag.

The linked article is actually about a bit of plagiarism, not the extreme awfulness of Brown's prose. Scroll down to the bottom for links to that stuff.

And, I would like to add my name to list of those who have not read "The Da Vinci Code."

    I've never read "The DaVinci Code" either and have no plans to do so in the near future!

    I've been waffling about reading it, myself. I may, just to say I have, but I admit I'd be going in with a bias.

    After further consideration and consultation with my DH (who did read it but didn't particularly care for the writing style or the plot), I've decided to forego reading it. The most compelling arguments were 1) I've read better enough stuff that this would just bore me, and 2) it's very obvious the author has an agenda, and certain types of agendas are automatic turnoffs for me.
