I'm reading The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, who also wrote one of my favorite books, The Shadow of the Wind. The second book doesn't disappoint!

Okay Julie and Julia not so good, now reading Ben Mezrich's Rigged and it is awesome. If you are looking for a good, entertaining author Mezrich delivers (Busting Vegas and 21 also awesome reads).

Intriguing title -- is it a how-to, or a memoir?

Disappointed to hear that Julie and Julia is not so good....was hoping the same movie with Meryl Streep was gonna be a good one to see...maybe it will be better than the book.... curious to know other's opinions of Julie and Julia?

12 step books tend to be good!

I am currently reading A Team of Rivals, about Abraham Lincoln's campaign and presidency. It is for book club, but I have been wanting to read it!

Just finally getting around to "Secret Life of Bees". Seems like a nice little book.
