    OK, all your book lovers out there, who is reading or has finished King's latest book, "Under the Dome"???

    I got my copy last week. The darn thing is over 1,000 pages and weighs 3 lbs.! But I was hooked before I finished reading the 1st 50 pages.... :D :D

    I havent got it yet but that sounds like a 2 day book maximum.. get me hooked on one of his and well its history. I loved 'most' of them. Losing my mind the one that is half red/ half white where the hero is a 70yr old man.. that one made me cry and his books dont do that to me. Make me cringe but cry? heck no but it made me feel for the character. I am now a Dean Koontz fan also a bit tamer on the language but still enough thrill for these old bones.

    The outside shots of the movie is Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood, Oregon :D We would go tubing on Mt Hood and go to the lodge for lunch and to warm up!!! It is an awesome lodge 8) 8) 8)
