The Assistant by Malamud. Quite frankly, I'm trying to understand what all the fuss is about.

Finished The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Very sweet and sad.

After spending a couple of weeks trying to get thru Ghostwalk by Rebecca Stott (I am very determined that once I start a book, I finish it), I gave up. Picked up So Much for That by Lionel Shriver. and after a day and a half, just about finished. It's very interesting, if somewhat depressing, (a woman gets mesothelioma) but she's one of my favorite writers.

Just finished "Water for Elephants" by Sarah Gruen. Not a great book, but not a bad one. If you just want to read a book, it will hold your interest and it's not a waste of time.

I'm reading "South of Broad" by Pat Conroy. It was finally on the shelf when I went to the Library. While it is not on the level of "Prince of Tides," I am enjoying it so far. Conroy has the most beautiful descriptive ability.

Just finished "The Sant John's Fern", by Kate Sedley. Kind of slow compared to the rest of the previous books (Roger the Chapman series), but entertaining end.

I'm starting "The Goldsmith's daughter", the next book in the series.

I just finished "Inés of my soul" by Isabel Allende.

Great book on the life of Inés Suarez the woman who helped the Conquistador Pedro De Valdivia conquer and found Santiago de Chile.
Very interesting story, describing in details, amongst other things, the way Spanish conquistadores treated the native populations.

Amazon.com: Ines of My Soul: A Novel (9780061161537): Isabel Allende: Books

About to start:"The Wedding Officer" by Anthony Capella
