I am about halfway through Amy Bloom's Where the God of Love Hangs Out. It is short stories, some of them linked. It is intense!

Saturday night I started In My Father's House by E. Lynn Harris. I finished it last night around 9:30. This book was a little over 300 pages. I really enjoyed it. It was my first time reading one of his books. It's a shame he died so early.

I finished Holy Rollers by ReShonda Tate Billingsley in less than 8 hours. I'm so proud of myself! This book was over 300 pages. It's about a trio of friends who go looking for men at a minister's conference. They all meet someone and basically you have to read the book to see how it ends up. It's a Christian fiction novel and I enjoyed it considering I'm an atheist. I didn't feel there was a lot of overt religion.

I'm trying to get some reading accomplished before classes start.
I have about 8 books I need to pick up at the library this week. I can't wait!

The story was incredible and was made even better by the fact that this was the author's first novel and that HE was writing from the viewpoint of a WOMAN, a geisha no less. Oh, and that the author isn't even Asian. I thought it was a big thing for him to tackle but he did it VERY well.

I would read it if I were you. In fact, if I come across it, I think I'll read it again to see if I enjoy it now as much as I did then.
Done. I'm buying it. You convinced me.

Awesome! I hope it's as fabulous as I remember it to be.

ETA: I just re-read the first few pages and I think it just might be. Oh wow! I just noticed that it was first published in 1997, which is when I would have read it. And I still remember that it was terrific? Then it must be.

ENJOY!!!!

Just started "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". We'll see if it lives up to the hype.

I just finished "One Day" as well. It was bittersweet, in that the dialogue and depiction of a friendship were spot on and warm and funny, but it didn't have a happy ending.

I also read "The Lost City of Z", which is non-fiction about a failed search for El Dorado in the Amazon. It was a good read.
