We have a winner - congrats Linda Rose. I think it's her first Bingo game (is that correct?). I won on my first game, too.
I've had one other PM calling Bingo and I'm thinking about adding a random drawing for second place. That's not usually done, but it's my game, right?
So, anyone else with Bingo? PM me to get in the drawing and you might win something from my stash.
And in case anyone is interested, here are the last two books (no points for these, but just in case you care...)The Only Road North, Erik Mirandette
The author was a cadet at the Air Force Academy and took a leave of absence to do humanitarian work. He, his brother, and two friends decided to travel north from South Africa to Egypt, and in Cairo they were among the victims of a suicide bomber. Erik's brother, Alex, was killed and Erik was seriously injured but fought his way back, emotionally and physically. It's a hard story to read, but also an uplifting one.If You Really Loved Me, Ann Rule
Ann Rule wrote many "true crime" books, but this is the only one I've read. It's about a murder that took place in Garden Grove, California, and the police investigation that brought the killer to justice. This is how the Library Journal describes it: "(It) tells the story of computer businessman David Brown, a "complete sociopath" who manipulated his 14-year-old daughter, Cinnamon, into murdering his 23-year-old wife in Orange County, California in 1985. Brown collected some $800,000 in insurance money and married his wife's 17-year-old sister while Cinnamon went to the reformatory." It reads like a novel but trust me, it's true. I worked at the Garden Grove Police Department at the time and this is a great retelling of the case. I was reading the reviews for this book awhile ago and had to laugh at one reviewer who said the characters just weren't believable. Ha! They're real people!
