snork! Wooo hooooo witchy woman. hum hum hum hum la la la.<g>

On topic.<g> I read "Ellen Foster" because it came home with my daughter's required reading books. It's a quick read, but really quite good.

And, I re-read "Catcher in the Rye." It's also on my daugther's required reading list. I hadn't read it in years. It's interesting to re-read certain books years later. Life experience lets you see things in a completely different light.

And, just to let you know, The Lovely Bones did pick up speed after those 40 pages (I think I was just too tired to read).

I really like the woman's writing style, and the character reminds me of myself as a 14 or 15 year old.

Well I'll check that one out then.

Prepare to be jealous all. I am still reading Midwives (that's not the good part). I was just reading some of it while sitting on a little sun soaked balcony, next to a rushing river in Montana. The guys walked up the street for a beer, but I'm temporarily on crutches and stayed back. I bet I'm enjoying myself MORE!

Howdy all!

Well I thought witchy woman was a far better choice than the only other one I could think of and ding dong the witch is dead by the munchkins, just didn't seem appropriate.

Hope your foot, ankle, leg is better soon Cod! and I'm really jealous, would love to be there

Oh, the Lovely Bones did hold my attention. I won't give anything away, but there's a part that really just did it in for me.

On another note, I just finished Memoirs of a Geisha. It was fabulous.

I put aside the last quarter of "Fall On Your Knees" to read "The Lovely Bones" this weekend because Alice Sebold is giving a reading at a local bookstore on Monday evening, and the members of our book club are going. I should read the book before I meet the author and ask for her autograph.

LOL! to the witchy comments

So what did you all think of "Lovely Bones?"

I'm back to the Library to day to return "Geisha" and "Kitchen God's Wife". Both were excellent.

Thumbs up

Cinderellen, if you liked Kitchen God's Wife, read the Bonesetter's Daughter. I loved it.

Don't forget The Hundred Secret Senses

I'm still ploughing thru Dust to Dust. All in all I think this may be one of Hoag's best...shrugs. I want something really good to read. I think I will read all of Lois Battles books since I loved Floribama so much.

Finished Midwives. On a scale of 1 to 10...a 6.

Brought home The Kichen God's Wife.

(Upon rereading what I just typed, I discovered I spelled Kitchen without the "t". I have a problem with this word. Once, I was painting on a long pine board. It was a gift for my favorite aunt's kitchen. I painted fruits upon it, and the saying "Life's riches other rooms adorn, but in the kithen home is born". I was proudly showing it to someone, before giving it as a gift, when they reluctantly pointed out my misspelling. Great.)

It's like I have a KITCHEN block or something.
