The Purpose Driven Life By Rick Warren

And then just for fun: The Neverending Story by Michael Ende

I also just read: Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster. I highly recommend this book. Not only did it remind me so much of myself, and my struggles at times, and to again appreciate the fact that I am not alone in them, it just made me laugh out loud - and who doesn't love to laugh.

The Yiddish Police Man's Union by Michael Chabon. It's fantastic...I'm a bit in love with it. And I've been muddling through The Omnivore's Dilemma.

And I just finished The Night Watch, by Sarah Waters, and it is beautiful, complex and rather heartbreaking. Not a light read, but a good one.

I'm reading "A Year in the World," about an older married couple who chucked their jobs and decided to spend a year touring Europe and the Mediterranean region. I'm jealous--I want to do this too!

I just got in a batch of books I ordered from a book-swapping website, so I've got a bunch waiting in the wings. Currently being read are:

The Sun Also Rises (Ernest Hemingway) <- almost finished, thank goodness.
Invisible Man (Ralph Ellison)
and
Love in the Time of Cholera (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

Jen Lancaster's books are all good. She's awesome.

I am currently re-reading 1984. So classic. So scary.

I just finished two books... The Godmother and then The Stepmother. Both very good. I almost didn't want to return them to the library. I think I'll get them both in time.

Any Emily Giffin fans? I read that Something Borrowed is going to be made in a movie. Hmmmm, I wonder how it'll compare to the book?

Here is what I found on her site...• 2008. Love the One You’re With debuts at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. Hilary Swank buys film rights to Something Borrowed and Something Blue, teaming up with Edward Burns’ production company, Wild Ocean Films. Emily begins writing her fifth novel.

I've gotten more from her newsletter though. Just thought I'd share.

I too hope that it is done well. Can't imagine who'd I think would portay the characters though? Hmm?

Well..I hope Hilary Swank doesnt play any of the characters!!! She needs to stick with Oscar winning roles. I loved Something Borrowed and Something Blue.

Warhol by Victor Bockris. It's pretty fabulous, and very different than last month's book (Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way by Pope John Paul II).
