Wild Card/Sunday — 12/16/07

I finished reading “The Bourne Ultimatum” and watching the movie of the same title. The title is the only similarity between the two. Thumbs up for the book. The movie was OK. I picked up another book at the library tonight, “The Beautiful Cigar Girl” by Daniel Stashower. It’s the true story of the murder of beautiful Mary Rogers in 1941, which riveted New York City for almost a year and brought Edgar Allan Poe into the case, shortly after he wrote “The Murders in the Rue Morgue.” I read a couple of chapters tonight. Good stuff. What are you reading this yuletide? You can answer that question or start your own thread with this Wild Card …
