I read Breaking Dawn over the past few nights. I enjoyed the plot but was a little surprised at the simplicity of the writing. It was an easy read though. I look forward to seeing the movies now.

I finally finished The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.

It didn't take like, uh, three weeks for me to finish it ONLY because I didn't like it. I've been busy with stuff. But it certainly didn't help that I didn't enjoy it. Why did I keep reading it, you ask? The choppiness -- something that I would ordinarily detest and make me throw in the towel -- worked for me this time because my available time was irregular at best. I can't even say that I'm happy that I read it -- I can only say that I'm happy that it's over.

My time is still jerky and will be until mid-April, but I'm going to start on something else soon. I just haven't decided what. Probably something short... like me and my attention span.

A very simplistic mystery that I saw in the library yesterday - Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke. Comes with a delicious sounding recipe!

I started Diary of a Nobody by George Grossmith. It's a short (148 pages) British book. Short is good. British is good. It's cute in a bumbling sort of way.

Just finished "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle", by David Wroblewski. A rather daring book, but he pulled it off. Largely about dogs, and I'm not a dog lover, but well done enough that that was not a deterrent. Long and plodding at times, but it remained on point. I'd give it a B-minus or C-plus.

About to start "The Girl Who Played Go" by Shan Sa.

Just finished A WALK IN THE WOODS By BILL BRYSON

Amazon.com: A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail (9780307279460): Bill Bryson: Books
which I enjoyed a LOT. I went to the library today to return it and picked up Neither here nor there by him as well. (It was the only other BOOK they had by him on the shelves.... they did have some CD"s and books on tape bu I prefer to read)....
I also got a Confessions of a shopaholic which someone mentioned on here recently as being just a nice easy entertaining read. I started it and I agree.
Also , finally, whoever is considering Marjorie Morningstar, should defnitely read it. I remember reading it years and years ago and loving it. a great, easy read.
