Stieg Larsson

My parents like to read books aloud to each other. It is one of the many charming qualities they have as a couple. Last night my mother called to tell me that they had just finished Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy:

  • The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
  • The Girl Who Played With Fire
  • The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest
My mother insists that my husband and I make these the next books we read. Apparently they are so spectacular that my mother had to visit foreign websites to order the last book in the trilogy because it's not available in the U.S.A. until May 25, 2010, and my mother is so interested in the author that she plans to read his bibliography (Edit: Doh, I mean biography) The Man Who Left Too Soon. I am passing along my mother's recommendation to the blog world, and I also plan to make these the next books I listen to on my iPhone.

  1. Awh, this is sweet, Son.

    BTW I'm going to read Larrson's biography, not his bibliography - I'm thinking the biography should be the more interesting of the two. :>)

    And your quirks in spelling/word use (?) are among your many, many, splendid charms.
