I am still reading Team of Rivals, and it is good!
I'm reading this now and I love it. It's really sad.

The Road was great. Very dark. I read it in one night. I could not put the book down.

Yodi, I imagine it was Still Alice that you are commenting is sad? Yes, and I enjoyed the story from her perspective, quite unexpected. We read it for my book club and had a really good, thought-provocing discussion. And, I agree about The Road!

^Mommytotwo, I read Infidel about 2 months ago. Distressing.

Currently I am (re)reading Wicked. I enjoyed it the first time, and never got to the sequel. Well, I just read installments 2 and 3, so I picked it up again.
