Are You There Vodka looks funny, I like her dry-ish, self-depreciating humor.

I gave up on Mama Makes up Her Mind.

Just started American Gods, and I thought it was crap, when it suddenly caught my attention. I'm going to give it another day or so, but think I should stop at the library just in case.

I started reading Inkheart a few nights ago and am really enjoying it. Don't know why I'm so into YA literature these days. Maybe because I know it will have a happy ending and that's all I can handle in these grim times....

Oh! I forgot...

I am currently listening to Gone With the Wind. Been meaning to read it for years! My daughter is enjoying it as well, though she misses half of it. So good!

Great thread! I read a lot of books. I loved the Kite Runner, you need to read A thousand splendid suns as well. If you want an intersting read, check out "Transister Radio" by Chris Bonajil (can't spell he wrote Midwives which is fabulous as well). James Patterson the Sail was great as well. My favorite book of all time is Into Thin Air by John Krakauer (Adventure). I read a lot of different genres so I have some interesting suggestions. Great topic!

I just finished that book; it was fascinating to get such insights into how we are a corn-fed nation, and all that that implies, good and bad. Excellent writing and easy to read.

I love both of these books.

Just started The Other Queen by Phillippa Gregory...same auther as The Other Boleyn Girl. It's about Mary Queen of Scots and the people Queen Elizabeth put in charge of her. Each character speaks in the first person in each chapter...interesting so far!

I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE is so much better than SHE'S COME UNDONE. They are completely different, of course. His newest, THE HOUR IS FIRST BELIEVED is good also.
