Happy Thanksgiving, Michelle. What are you reading? I just that new book on Daniel Patrick Moynihan: A Portrait In Letters Of An American Visionary. I am in awe of some of our leaders' education. wow!

Michelle, If you haven't read Eat. Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert yet, it's worth the read. I sepecially loved the first section (written in Italy) and the last (written in Bali). The middle section, was written in India and had a lot about meditation in it, and I'm not the meditating type!

I read Vinegar Hill years ago--I was bummed out for weeks. Buy lots of chocolate before you read any further! Let me know what you think of it!
I know, if other members don't join us, let's talk about them! We'll show them!

Well the book I finished was absolutley great. I just started an old book stumbled across: A. Mannette Ansay's Vinegar Hill. The author does a really good job of making you really understand the dark and pitiful setting. I haven't gotten far in it but it has some good reviews. I'll have to keep you posted once I'm half way done. Funny you say that. I thought that maybe once a few of the members saw just you and I as the only two they would feel sorry and actually join!! HA! Well, that didn't happen.

Hi, Michelle! What are you reading now? I've started Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I expected it to be good, but have been even more delighted that it describes the people and cultures so well. The description of Bali blew me away.
Where is everyone? Doesn't anyone read anymore?!

That's funny you bring that up because I did dream a little about it last night. Yes, very scary. I'm glad you're so open minded!!! Yes, close your eyes and pick one. If not flip a coin. You probably can't go wrong anyway. I can't wait to see what I'll read next. I'll for sure keep you posted.

Your book sounds very good. I hope it doesn't give you nightmares! What a scary man! I read two young adult books lately because I have a grandson and he asked me to read them. One was The Last Exit to Normal by Michael B. Harmon. It was about a teenage boy who lived with his homosexual father and his partner. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. As a writer, I try to read what my grandson reads to keep on top of things. The other book was Hellie Jondoe by Randall Platt. It was very good too. I've got a stack of books I want to read that are more adult. Shall I just close my eyes and pick one?

Hi Janelle. Sorry I haven't kept up with reading lately. Well I had this book for about a year and decided to finally read it; Between Two Worlds by Zainab Salbi. I'm only half way done and just started reading it this Saturday. I think its an amazing memoir of her life and the friendship her family had with Saddam Hussein. It really helps us understand how he stayed in control for 35 years and his tactics. Fear and prying on the uneducated and ignorance of those who weren't into politics. Just wanted to let you know!

HI Janelle. Actually I'm embarrassed to say that I just finished Eclipse in time for the release. Wow! its amazing how much time that saga has taken from me. I also am amazed at how movies do the books no justice!!!! Its a shame. I am currently not going to start the fourth book to do other readings. I will most definitley try some of your suggestions. I have some free time this afternoon and will stop by Half Price Books this evening. I'll keep you posted!

Hi! Just stopping by to see what you're reading now. I've been reading a lot of books (see my shelf on Shelfari) but the one I'm reading now I think you'd really like: The Book of Jamaica by Russell Banks. I love to read about different places! Hope you are well.
