  1. Michelle - 2010

    Hey Michelle ~ Be sure to let us know your thoughts on The Help ....apparently it's an excellent book. I've been trying to sign it out at the library for sometime now, but it's always checked out.
  2. Ruth's reading in 2010

    Hey Ruth ~ Thanks for the no-beating-around-the-bush tip on "The Birthing House" ..... think I'll just pass it by next time I come across it. Did you actually stick with it till the end? Good for you if you did ....now that's a hard core reader. I'm curious as to what your reaction will be on "A Fine Balance." I just finished it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was excellent ...it will go down as one of my favorite books of all time! Certainly not a feel good book, by any stretch of the imagination but I grew so attached to the characters and could not put the book down ....kept thinking; "I wonder what they're up to now?" I find you have to read so many books to find that one that just grabs you ....and this one grabbed me. It haunted me too ....I still think about the characters and what Mistry did to them. Enjoy ....
  3. Finished up What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day and now I'm into The Winter Vault by Anne Michaels. This is is my book club's SEPT selection and since I was able to get it at the library the other day, thought I get it read now.
  4. Ruth's reading in 2010

    Hi Ruth ~ You've got some really great stuff here .....I've enjoyed looking through your fantastic library. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day has been on my TBR list for a little while now ...did you like it?
  5. LOL ....here's mine ~ Your fairy is called Hex Icedancer ~ She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable. ~ She lives in places hexed and tainted by black magic. ~ She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup. ~ She wears black feathers and rose petals. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
  6. Just finished Songs in Ordinary Time and have now started What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day. My first experience with Pearl Cleage ....and so far, I'm liking it.
  7. Have a great birthday! :)

  11. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

    I've read this one and Kafa on the Shore and like Lucybird, preferred this one. It was long but there were some scenes that were riviting ....not to mention graphic. As for the loose ends ....I found I wasn't overly frustrated. I guess I had expected that from Murakami.

    Hey Blithe! Haven't seen you in awhile. Been wondering where you got off to ....hope all is well at your end.
  13. NovaLee's Reading List 2009

    I'm not really sure what to make of it myself yet, Janet. To be honest ....if I were to judge the book by it's cover, I would never even of given it's boring grey cover a second glance. Hence, my reason for joining the book club in the first place....to expand my wee mind to other possibilities. I shall keep you posted.
