I have about 100 pages to go on Soulless by Gail Carriger. I'm finding it very amusing.

Wow, July came into 2011 and I didn't even realize it. Guess I'm busier than I think. Thank you so much for starting the July thread ANOther!!


Anyway, from the June thread:

I was actually able to rent out a kindle from the library that had about 8 pages of books. Most I"m not interested in, but I wanted to play with a kindle and see if I want one or not-I DO!!!

Anyway, I started reading The Help that was loaded on it, and it's been really good!

"Lucky" by Alice Sebold.

Very well written about the brutal rape and the court case she went through as a freshman in college.

I read this a few years ago. Good book, well written, I could never read it again though. Terrible what she went through.

I read The Help last month and loved it. Hard to believe those things happened not so long ago.

Hubby gave me a Kobol for my bday at the end of June and it has a bunch of classics loaded on it so I started reading Uncle Tom's Cabin because a friend of mine always told me how much she liked it. I can see why it's a classic, it is so hard to put down but there is so much of it I find horribly disturbing.

I'm going to have to pick a happier topic for my next book.

I read The Help over Memorial Day weekend, and loved it! Was also fortunate enough to get to see a free screening of the movie, due out in the states in August. If you like the book, definitely see the movie.

Currently reading the "Prey" series by John Sanford. The Hunger Games are on the list, too.

"Running With Scissors" by Augusten Burroughs. It's disturbing. Right up my alley!
