Karen!!! My daughter is itching to tell me what's happening in the book, and I REFUSE to listen!
My entire family does the same thing with movies. They sum up the whole damned movie in about 2 minutes. Including who died/did it/got married/etc.

Angry Summer Reads...

Just got back from Barnes and Noble and purchased Jennifer Weiner's second book... In Her Shoes which I am going to start immediately. Folks may remember that I HIGHLY recommend her first book... Good in Bed . If you haven't read that one yet, go to your local book store NOW and buy it.

I am reading Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton. It is part of the anita Blake Vampire Huner series. I have not gotten too far, as I am a slow reader in addition to numerous daily activities that I cannot go without.
It has suspense, romance, and is supernatural all at once. I highly recommend it.
Also Shes Come Undone by Wally Lamb is a great pick It is hard to describe but I hightly recommend that book.
Another one I love is Firm for Life by anna and Cynthia Benson. It is about fitness/excercise/and nutrition, but when I need encouragement this book almost always helps.

I've just started reading, Writings on an Ethical Life, by Peter Singer. Woof! I haven't read a book that I've had to concentrate so on hard in ages! I'm only on page 14, but I think I'm going to have to start all over and really THINK while I'm reading.

I read Margaret Atwood's The Blind Assassin when we were away, and I really liked it - I never think I am going to like her stuff and then I really do. And I read a book by somebody Sebold called The Immigrants about 4 Jewish immigrants to England, and a bio of Rosalind Franklin called The Dark Lady of DNA (which the girls started calling The Barking Lady of DNA - sounds like something Scooby Doo would come up against doesn't it?)

I am about to start Patricia Cornwall's book on Jack the Ripper, so I'll let you know. And sounds like I ought to try David Sedaris - sounds excellent!

Talking Harry Potter

I am enjoying the "Order of the Phoneix" BUT I keep picking up "Empty Without You" the letters of Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok. This has got to be some of the most romantic, mushiest stuff I have ever read! Why can't men write letters like this?

Okay Ellis, what is up with the multiple personality summer? Have you read Sybil ? I can NOT believe the abuse this woman went through. No wonder she is so screwed up!

Lidian, have you read the Handmaiden's Tale? It's my favorite!

Sojourner - Are you finished with In Her Shoes yet? I didn't like it nearly as much as Good in Bed . But it was still pretty good.
