I just recently read "My Sister's Keeper," too! I really liked the book, more people should read it. Very thought provoking. I did'nt like the ending though. I thought it should have ended right after the court hearing, and left us wondering whatever happened to the two sisters.


Thanks for this column. I've added a few more books to my miles-long books wish list. I'm currently reading Backlash by Susan Faludi and find it amazing how little things have changed since it was written in 1991.


Just (5 minutes ago) finished Lorna Landvik's Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. It's my bookclub's pick for the month and a light, easy read for summer.


Great minds think alike! I have a half-finished blog post right now talking about books and reading.

Just finished Hillary Clinton's Living History and Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Ain't She Sweet. Currently reading Marshall Chapman's Goodbye Little Rock and Roller and BJ Mountford's Bloodines of Shackelford Banks, about the wild ponies on our Outer Banks.


My son reads anything and everything about sports--almanacs, Sports Illustrated, sports sections of newspapers, biographies--so I'm not too worried if he just reads those and cheats manuals until the next Harry Potter comes out. My daughter goes in spurts--reads a book a day for a week or so, then not much for the next week. I read anything I find interesting. I usually get British novels, but the exchange rate is making it a bit hard to justify Amazon.uk right now. I tend to historical novels. One recommendation--I DID NOT enjoy "I Don't Know How She Does It" about a working mother. I thought it was very cliched, and not realistic about the work demands. Most of the others I know who have read it feel the same, but I've yet to see a real review.


There is a semi-trashy, but oh-so-fun series by Janet Evanovich (starting with One for the Money and proceding up to Ten Big Ones) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0312990456/qid=1088187246/sr=1-7/ref=sr_1_7/102-9443781-5872146?v=glance&s=books

You can pick up the paperbacks most anywhere and they are definitely beach worthy.


This afternoon I'm taking my 5-year-old to our favorite place, the bookstore, as soon as Wondergirl gets here to babysit the littler ones. We'll look for Jon & Susan's work. Thanks for such a great post.


This past week I just wrapped up two steller non-fiction titles:

Two Souls Indivisible:The Friendship That Saved Two POWs in Vietnam - Excellent! four stars

Hello, My Name is Mommy - Excellent also, espcially for first time moms.


Besides children's books to Tony, I'm reading A Woman's Walk with God and will probably also be reading up on breast cancer awareness, support and prevention. (See my homepage for more details on this.)
