I'm not going to be starting it for a while. I have a pile of "to be read" books in my night table, and I just started Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada, which is a fairly heavy book that I think I'll be reading quite slowly.

So, if YOU start it first, please let ME know how you like it.
Oh believe me, you will most likely start it before me! My pile of "to be read" books is even bigger than that! I am not the fastest reader, but I just LOVE to accumulate interesting books that I will read sometime in the future. It's a bad habit, but I try to buy used so it's not as expensive as it could be.

My father watched the movie not too long ago and liked it so I'm hoping the book is just as good. It's supposed to be his best; we'll see!

I think Rakhi will be finishing it first; I'm looking forward to the review!

I'm hoping that sex and/or violence is in tomorrow's update. Just kidding, of course. But I do hope that SOMETHING happens!
As of yesterday he was admiring a cathedral in Sailsbury.

Sex and violence? I recently read Barry Eilser's Killing Rain. I liked it..there is lots of violence!

My all time favorite sensal book is The Alchemy of Desire by Tarun Tejpal. It was amazing. I absolutely loved it. I recommend this if you havent already read this.

Lark & Termite. I'm just on page 38, and don't know if I'll get past 50. If anyone has read it, please let me know if it picks up.

Just finished Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt- it was a very good read, and I enjoyed it (well about 90% of it- there was some racial stuff that was in my opinion, just too predictable)- mostly . A good read.
Will be starting The Murder Room... the sherlock holmes modern day one.

Just started Eat Pray Love this a.m. My daughter loved it.

I won't see the movie because I can't watch Julia Roberts, but so far the book has caught my attention and I'm only 20 pages in.
