Ohhh I really liked the Wally Lamb book you're reading. It was the first book I read for book club! I had been invited by an aquaintance and I read that GIANT book and i liked it so much and was so pleased with myself for completing it before the meeting...on the day of the meeting I was calling her and calling her but she never picked up. I liked that book so much that I went by myself to a stranger's house to talk about it with 10 other strangers! Ha! Here I am, 6 years later, running that book club.
Thanks so much for the friend invite! We seem to have alot of the same taste book wise. I checked out your favorites shelf and we share many favorite books. I love Jennifer Weiner and didn't realize I had missed the book you are currently reading, added it to my wish list of course. Look forward to discussing good books, etc, with you.
how flattering! LOL Hope I shelve something that you didn't know you wanted. I have found quite a few very good books here in that way.
When I found this site I was really just looking for a way to list the books I have read just for my own recall. I really did get so much more out of it.
I miss Higbie Bagels. LOL No such thing as a good bagel in FL. Pizza or chinese, either. I love food about as much as I love books. LOL
Hey Dana- I loved Owen Meany and like John Irving in general (except for Hotel New Hampshire). The movie adaptation "Simon Birch" is decent, too- what do you think? I am reading "Hearts in Atlantis" by Stephen King right now, I like it, but don't love it- it is promising and I hope it gets better. We had a miserable windy and rainy day, but over all it has been nice. How are things up your way?
Hey Dana, I am just dropping by to say a quick hello. I am reading "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini- his follow up to "The Kite Runner". It is still really hot here- in the 90's everyday- I am really ready for fall and weather in the low 70's and 60's. What have you been up to lately?
