  2. A Deathday letter? That is one piece of mail I would not like to receive. Makes you think about what you would do with such a small amount of time. Happy reading!

  4. The 56 is good - makes you think the person has a choice about how they are going to die but the book beginning - ha me laughing in a perverse way because it is just the kind of thing you can "hear" a killer saying. Perfect opening - gripped me right from the start.

  13. Death Day? That's something different. I'm hoping mine doesn't come before I've: a) danced at my children's weddings, and b) visited Scotland. :O)

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
