Has anyone read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn? I know it's gotten great buzz but I haven't read it yet. I'm thinking about getting it for my mom, since she likes mysteries and crime thrillers and stuff, but not if it's all hype and not actually any good.

I did get nice hardcover editions of From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and The Westing Game for my nephew, who'll be ten next month. Those were two of my favorites when I was that age. Still are. (Speaking of, we have less than four years to develop the technology to make fictional characters real, because I want to be able to vote for the Alex P. Keaton/Tabitha-Ruth Wexler ticket in 2016.)

And it looks like Reached is out. I'm torn between getting it now or putting it on my wishlist for D. I've got plenty to read between now and Christmas, but.... I love books and buying books! (There's also the Sweet Valley Confidential compilation. What to do??)
