I am reading "The Corpse Walker" - real life stories, China from the bottom up. Liao Yiwu

Very interesting. What it was really like to live under Chairman Mao. Interviews with people from various walks of life and how they coped with changes in the government.

The Ambassador's Son by Homer Hickam.....about 1/3 of the way through. Haven't decided what I think yet.

Just finished Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card, the last book in the Ender series. It was pretty good, but my least favorite of the series.

I know I'm late in coming to this thread, but good choice! I used to teach parenting seminars using this method when I worked in an elementary school downtown (D.C.). It's simple, but not easy!

Anyway, my current read: Beyond Love and Work: Why Adults Need to Play

Finished reading "Three Men In A Boat," supposedly the funniest book ever written. The first three chapters, sure thing. The rest? P.G. Wodehouse is a zillion times funnier.

I am about 150 pages into WORLD WITHOUT END by Ken Follett. I read PILLARS OF THE EARTH by him many years ago and I loved it. So far WWE looks like another winner. Follett is one of the authors that consistently writes stories I like.

I am reading "Are you There Vodka? It's me, Chelsea" by chelsea handler. It's extremely funny!

2nd book I'm reading is "Q&A" by Vikas Swarup. Sad but very good.

3rd book I'm reading is "Almost alice" by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. It's a teen book, but well-written.
