Not bad

Let me begin by saying that last month's book club pick, the very trendy Atonement, was not to my taste. I need to say just one thing: there is no atonement in Atonement. Blah. I donated my book immediately after the book club meeting because I knew I would never crack that book open again.

This month we read The Tenth Circle (as mentioned below) and it was pretty good. It was sad and there were no easy answers, but all in all it was a good read. It was also a fast read and that's nice because I like to read a lot of books and I like to move through them pretty quickly. I would say out of 5 stars it would be a 3.5.

On another related note, I have to say that I am really enjoying the club. It's nice to meet with a group of women and just have a good time and discuss books. If you have a chance to join or form such a group then do so :)

I've only read two by JP so far. I saw that we just got her newest one at the library. I'm like you, I like to read a lot of books too. There are just so many out there! Which is why I can't understand why some people get stuck on certain authors who basically write the same book over and over again.

Right now I am reading a book on finding inner peace and a book called "do fish breathe water" which is about trivia (how a penny is made, where christmas trees come from, etc.)... i have been working on the trivia book for almost 2 years now. I guess that reveals that I am not much of a reader these days.
