Life of Pi. I'm about 3/4 of the way done and I'm fascinated by it. I can't wait to finish it.

I just finished A Trick of Light by Karen Blomain.

I liked it a lot. Her writing style reminds me of Anne Tyler's and I love Tyler's books.

I have recently read Sam's Letters to Jennifer and Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson. They were okay. I felt like something was missing in both and I can't quite put my finger on it. Then I read Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry and am now reading Messenger by Lois Lowry. I think I'm going to hold off on reading Son by her for a little bit. I am only reading Messenger now because I got it from the library and ebooks can only be borrowed for 2 weeks. I did enjoy Gathering Blue though.

Finally reading Jodi Picoults newest book, The Storyteller. Great read, I am almost half way thru and I can't put it down.

Definitely brought emotions, but I didn't cry. I don't cry much with books, although I know some I do fight tears. Definitely good books when they do that.

I definitely don't laugh at Oprah's selections - I really think she is the mother of the modern book club - however, she and I parted ways when I jumped headlong into her recommendation We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carroll Oates. No more sadness, Oprah. No more family dysfunction. No more deep, dark secrets that ruin generations to come. No more Joyce Carroll Oates.

Goodbye, Oprah. Hello Dawn, Ketabcha, Marlow, Blue Plate Willow and many other City Data readers!

I'm reading Ancient Highway by Bret Lott; Before Women had Wings by Connie Fowler; The Murderer's Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers. So far, so good.
