Snow Flower made me appreciate the fact that we (females) didn't have to have our feet bound when we were young.

I'm reading Unbearable Lightness, an autobiography by Portia de Rossi. The 4 Hour Body, The 17 Day Diet. I'm starting a diet Monday, darn it!

I've added Amy Tan's "The Bonesetter's Daughter" to my "currently reading" list. She's so easy to read! I do have "The Joy Luck Club" also, but I haven't read it yet.

I have not read that one. I'll be very interested in hearing what you think of it.

The Joy Luck Club is wonderful. So is the movie. Saving Fish From Drowning is also very good. I have never read an Amy Tan book that I have not liked. She brings something very special with all her books.

Michael Dorris, "Cloud Chamber". Tiresome at the outset, I quit and decided to take it back to the library, but it was the weekend, and nothing else to read, I pushed on, and a couple of chapters in, it begins to take shape, and the writing is quite intense with wonderful imagery.

I'll add "Saving Fish from Drowning" to my TBR list. I'm halfway done with "The Bonesetter's Daughter" and am thoroughly enjoying it!

Have you read A Raft in Yellow Water. It's been on my "to read" list for years.
