Molly Weatherfield-Carrie's Story
I'm working on my Ira Levin collection. I have five of his novels (out of seven) in lovely hardcover editions with dust covers. I'm missing Son of Rosemary, but I always see it at my used bookstore. But I never see the other one that I'm missing, so I just purchased it off of amazon:
A Kiss Before Dying (his first).
(I just finished The Boys from Brazil this morning (brilliant!) and I'm already into This Perfect Day)
The Doomsday Key by James Rollins
Is that the one about Nazi's? I think I saw that movie.
The Boys from Brazil
It is! It was really really great and suspenseful! I want to see the movie, do you remember if it was any good? Gregory Peck stars as the main Nazi.

What can I say, Interlibrary Loan really works for me!:lol:
Yep, it's a wonderful thing, indeed! I have Guillermo del Toro's The Strain awaiting me. After his appearance on the Craig Ferguson show and promoting the book, I have to read it. I'd really like to read Mark Twain's Joan of Arc, but I can't get it through ILL.
Can/Will your library request from out of state? Mine will, but I have to stipulate how much I'm willing to pay for postage. I've never been asked to pay...well, except for the time my book came all the way from England. That's when we learned they WOULD go out of country! Now, I make sure any new interlibrary loan person knows to indicate USA ONLY:lol:
I made a request like that recently, but the librarian told me there was discussion about them no longer offering that kind of service. As far as I know it hasn't happened yet, so I guess I could make another request.
Or just move to my little town..MY librarians will take care of you!
