My sister loved it and gave her copy to me. I haven't read it yet, but I think you'll like it too.

I was liking it... and then I wasn't in the mood.

I'm reading And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini now.

LOL! Nah, I'm just in a completely foul mood today. (You should see the spat that I have going on over on the dog forum! I am FIERCE today and it's not even a thread that I started!) Nothing is making me happy. The Hosseini book is keeping my temper at bay, though.

Whatever it takes to keep it together, my friend, do that.

Sadly, I'm still battling on the dog forum. I'm INTO IT! And now I'm angry. I can't read when I'm angry.

Well I did finish The Round House, and I thought it was quite good. However, I did find that in the very beginning I had to force myself to continue. I was happy I pushed through, but there were several parts where I just couldnt really keep with it and glossed over a bit. OVerall though I do think it was a recommendable book.
I am now reading The Paradox of Choice (just started) which is another behavioral economics book which I am drawn to. As it is just an interest of mine and I am not doing this for school, I am sure I will also be glossing over parts that are not of interest but so far very engaging.
