Could not get into A Partial History of Lost Causes.

Now am reading Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan. About four Smith graduates and their lives both at school and afterwards. I can't quite see what all the raves were about (I liked the author's next book, Maine, much better), but in my desperation to get through a book, I may continue...

Im also picking up Doc today by Mary Doria Russell so I will let you all know about that one too . take care all and have fun .
In the Garden of the Beasts is one of the best books I have read in the last couple of years. Nonfiction. It's the story of our ambassador to Germany during Hitler's rise. The things that our guy went through are tough to hear about and particularly because a lot of the trouble came from the good ol' boy network of our foreign service at that time.

Stoner by John Williams. I'm not even at the halfway point, though. I'm enjoying the book -- although it's horribly sad -- but I don't have a lot of time, with company staying at my house. Next week, I'll be back to my normal schedule... until my next group of visitors at the end of the week.

I'm a fan of Maeve Binchey and I found one of her books yesterday that I have not read. So, I'm reading it now.

This Year It Will Be Different. It's a delightful book. The thing I really like about her books, other than the wonderful writing style is that no matter how awful things seem they always turn out well.
