I haven't read any Patterson either. I was curious because I always see his books. Go Harry Potter, I guess. That lady has got to be loaded! I have noticed all the heaven stuff...probably because of Christmas coming up.

Never noticed that about Patterson.
And for the heaven- I guess. It just seems like one good idea takes off and then a thousand knock offs follow it.

I never tried it. I'm not big on diets. They always backfire on me and I end up gaining more wait instead.
