I'm about 2/3 of the way through Jodi Picoult's Sing You Home. It's plodding at this point and so am I. I usually am totally captured by her books but it's not happening for me this time around. I have to finish it because she is known for a total surprise at the end of each book.

There is a lot of interesting info on music therapy in the book and I am enjoying reading about that.

Just finished Allen Quist's, "America's Schools: The Battleground for Freedom" - must read for anyone interested in what is happening in our public schools.

In the middle of "The Tea Party Goes to Washington" by Rand Paul - interesting read for anyone curious as to what the Tea Party is actually about.

Finishing up 19th Wife (yes, still) which I am loving and kind of don't want to end.
Next will either be a Tree Grows in Brooklyn or Let the Great World Spin. The latter was raved about to me this week as in "you have to read this " so I just did a quick search here and it seems a few of you felt rather differently about it!! Well, we shall see if I ever finish my current reading I will give it a whirl and see who I agree with.

I haven't completely given up on it. I only got a little ways into it but I didn't sell it or give it away, which means that I *may* be willing to pick it up and try again. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it -- maybe you can give me the push that I need. (Or the permission to get rid of it completely.)

Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray

I've been spending too much on books and have decided to re-read a bunch of classics... all free for Kindle. I'd welcome any suggestions of classics you loved!

I really enjoyed "Garden Spells" and "The Girl Who Chased the Moon", both by Sarah Addison Allen. Also the much beloved "All Creatures Great and Small" series by James Herriot. It's been so long I think I'll have to do a re-read.
As far as Stephen King goes, my fav was "The Talisman". Right here and now!

I read The Rabbi years ago. It was a good book.

Just finished Peony in Love by Lisa See. I liked Snow Flower and the Secret Fan better, but this was still quite good.

Now about to start Jonathan Kellerman's Deception. I started reading his Alex Delaware series 10 years ago and I heart Milo Sturgis.

But I also have a hardbound edition of The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe right on the night table. Ah, yes. Sweet dreams!
