Really? It's in the theater? I didn't realize that.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a Swedish foreign release I believe. The Girl Who Played With Fire will be released in paper mid March 2010. Not too long of a wait.

Just starting on, Hungry by Crystal Renn, A Model's story of how she stopped starving herself and embraced her curves.

I will also be thumbing through The Wednesday Sisters, by Meg Waite Clayton and I picked up a copy of Half Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls, author of The Class Castle.

That's on my very short list of the greatest books ever written, but it is a real challenge to plow through it. It's not a light read, it is intense. Kristin overlaps "The Master of Hestviken", which is longer (I think) and even more penetrating.

I just finished "Snow Flower and The Secret Fan" and love it.

Now I'm reading "Julia's Chocolates" by Cathy Lamb and it's hilarious and heartbreaking all at once. It is really funny...a great read. You'll laugh out loud.

I'm reading The Easter Parade by Richard Yates. Very good story. He also wrote Revolutionary Road which I haven't read.

Revolutionary Road was a very good novel. I never saw the movie. I don't think I could take the ending. But the book had good character development.
