Just finished 20 Wishes by Debbie Macomber. It was good; some of hers bore me, like 21 Rainier Dr.

Also reading Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew by Ellen Notbohm. Short and very simple, but very informative.

A War of Gifts by Orson Scott Card was good, but it was a very short story (less than one hour read) that should have been included as a chapter in Ender's War.

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham was okay. Didn't realize he wrote the Kranks stuff. Is this typical of Grisham? Cuz I don't want to waste my time with his other stuff if it is.

If that was the 1st Grisham I read, I probably wouldn't have read more. I was disappointed with that one. I think his other stuff is much better. I've read many of his and SC is the only one I didn't really care for.

I enjoyed Skipping Christmas, but it is a big change from what I was used to reading by him. Playing for Pizza and Bleachers I didn't enjoy as much.

I'm halfway through with The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar. It's a phenomenal book. It's about the relationship and class difference between two Indian women in modern day Bombay. One woman is upper-middle class and the other woman is her servant who lives in the slums. Their relationship is endearing, heartbreaking, and strong. They guide each other throughout life's ups and downs. The book takes place over the span over several decades and you get to peer into how this relationship grows over time.
