LOL! Yeah, that's the movie. The book was written in 1956.

I really enjoyed that book. I read it a couple of years ago when I was reading everything I could find in the way of nonfiction about polygamy.

What a brave young woman she is.

I started Elizabeth the Queen by Sally Bedell Smith last night.

What a treat. I appreciate y'all mentioning it. It's great and very, very informative.

FINALLY----a book I loved! Friends Like Us by Lauren Fox. Loved the writing in it, even with some of the bad puns about vegetarian food (tempeh tantrum! soy to the world!). About a love triangle---young woman in twenties has had a platonic friendship with a guy in high school---introduces him to her best friend. They get involved and then things get difficult. But it's about much more than the love triangle---about growing up, becoming an adult, life choices, family and friend relationships, underemployment.

Now reading Spontaneous Happiness by Dr. Weill. I think this will be an excellent self-help book. He seems to give really good information and advice about living a great life!

So, A Kiss Before Dying is TOTALLY not my type of book... yet, I thought it was really good. I'm not a fan of mystery or suspense but I was completely digging this book, from start to finish.

Anyway, I was hoping that Downtown by Pete Hamill would arrive today. It didn't. Cancer Ward and Running With the Bulls by Valerie Hemingway came, though, but I have my heart set on starting either Downtown, Two Lives by Vikram Seth, or Winter of Our Discontent. I think, if I can hold off until then, I'll wait to see what tomorrow's mail brings before I start another book. I guess that means that I'll be watching TV tonight. UGH!

I'm reading Auschwitz by Miklos Nyiszli. He was a Jewish doctor in Auschwitz and reported the Mengele.

It's a good book and very informative with things I had hot read before.

For the first time in my life I am reading two books at once. I can't read more than a couple of chapters of Auschwitz without getting extremely angry. So I switch to the other book for a few hours before going back to Auschwitz.

It's not pleasant when reading the book. I get so angry that I find myself yelling at the book. I usually say things like: "Oh for the love of God" or
"Go to hell, you ba$tard." My outbursts are scaring my cats. I hope to finish the book tomorrow. According to Boris the Kindle I am 82% finished.
