Okay,I just finished "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and it is a much faster book than the first one. I also watched the Swedish film of "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo". Very good,but left out stuff from the book of course. Also very violent so beware. I split it up in 2 days on Netflix's instant movies. Now I guess I cannot wait for the third to get to paperback,so here goes spending more money on books,lol!
I am reading a lot of books right now from Audible.com and downloading them to my PDA. I love being able to walk around with a book in my ear, but they are not tangilble to share. I love John Grisham, too. Have you read the Painted House? It is one of my favorites, but not about law.
I read A Girl Named Zippy and LOVED it! I know you like Fannie Flagg...have you read Can't Wait to Get to Heaven? I just finished it and would be happy to lend it to you. Other books that I have especially enjoyed: Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews; The Glass Castle – Jeannette Walls; Tall Grass, The Diary of Mattie Spenser and The Chili Queen by Sandra Dallas; Snow Flower and The Secret Fan – Lisa See; A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – Betty Smith; Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden; Lucia, Lucia – Adriana Trigiani; My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult; These is My Words – Nancy Turner; Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress – Dai Sijie; The Yokota Officers Club – Sarah Bird; One Thousand White Women; The Journals of May Dodd – Jim Fergus; The Honk and Hollar Opening Soon – Billie Letts; Patty Jane’s House of Curl – Lorna Landvik.
