Finally, the worst final of the semester is over. (thank goodness!) I am headed to the Barns and Noble to get me a good read. Any suggestions?

Hi Scribble...I just bought a copy of Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. Have you read Skipping Christmas by John Grisham? Good seasonal story...not at all Grisham-like. Very good.

A young adult novel I just read and loved was Freewill by Chris Lynch. It's brilliant.

(((Scribe))) Thanks, I wrote down the titles. Hey, I passed that class enough to get a B. Not sure how much it will hurt my overall GPA, but I'll know when the rest of the grades come in. I know a B is not bad, and to be honest, I was worried whether or not I could pull it off.

Some of those books sound pretty good. I purchased "Three Gifts" a couple of weeks ago. It was 500 pages, but that wasn't the problem. The problem was that I couldn't put it down. Basically it was three Christmas stories. I've just been in the mood for them.

I have a book of Dicken's Christmas stories, but I've not read it. It's loaded with many of his works. Still, I already have those, so I will take my list into Barnes and Noble. I have a few of that guy's books. (The chamber, The street lawyer (best book to me that he's ever written!) and a host of others.

I'm always on the lookout for new writers too. Thanks for the tip ((((((Liam)))))))


Of course I can be good, hoofy. I think 'tis you that ya need to be worried about <weg> Hungry, anybody?

Here are a couple of books that looked intriguing to me yesterday:

<IMG SRC="http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0385721358.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg">

From Publishers Weekly
Equipped with an arresting premise, Egan's hip and haunting second novel (after The Invisible Circus) gets off to a promising start. Thirty-five-year-old Charlotte, a thoroughly unpleasant Manhattan-based model who escaped the middle-class nothingness of her upbringing in Rockford, Ill., then spent her adult life getting by on appearances, literally loses her face in a catastrophic car accident back in Rockford. As Charlotte's rebuilt face heals and she goes unrecognized at the restaurants and nightclubs that were her old haunts, she must grapple with the lives and losses she has tried to outrun a fractured childhood friendship, the fianc? she betrayed and "Z," a suspicious man from an unidentified Middle Eastern country. Anthony Halliday, an attractive, tormented private investigator, interrupts Charlotte's isolation. Hired by a pair of nightclub owners to track down Z because he absconded with a pile of their money, Halliday carries the scent of romance, but he also kicks off a chain of introductions that bizarrely lands Charlotte in the "mirrored room" of great fame. She is reconnected with her past at the same time that she becomes part of a brave new Internet world, where identity itself is a consumable commodity. Oddly, this narrative alternates with that of her old friend Ellen's daughter (also named Charlotte), whose life in Rockford centers around two older men. Though expertly constructed and seductively knowing, Egan's tale is marred by the overblown trendiness at its core. Charlotte (the model, who progresses from horrid to just bearable by the end) and the others come to the same realization: a world ruled by the consumerist values bred by mass production and mass information is "a world constructed from the outside in." The Buddha said it better. (okay, that's not entirely complimentary, but still...it sounds interesting to me)

<img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00006F87Q.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg">

From Publishers Weekly
This collection of columns, originally written for the Arizona Republic, details Notaro's daring exploits and comical mishaps as she matures from wild teenager to disheveled adult. Her vignettes are humorous if unoriginal. "The Useless Black Bra and the Stinkin'-drunk Twelve-step Program" is a classic drinking story, complete with the lost friend who is eventually found in a neighbor's front yard wearing only a bra. This hard-drinking, chain-smoking approach to partying inevitably leads to some punishing hangovers; in one extreme case, Notaro is mistaken for a homeless person while en route to jury duty in "Going Courtin'." Not surprisingly, disregard for her appearance diminishes her chances of fulfilling her mother's dream and bringing home from the trial a "balding, sexually repressed twenty-seven-year-old attorney strangled in a Perry Ellis necktie." Notaro's QVC-addicted mother is predictably in opposition to and embarrassed by her daughter's bad-girl antics. In "Waking Angela Up," Notaro compares herself to Janeane Garofalo, and there indeed are clear similarities in the blunt self-deprecation that fuels both women's humor. Notaro, however, lacks the biting originality of her more famous counterpart. In "This Is a Public Service Announcement," Notaro rails against public restroom users, including "the hoverer" and "the talker." Her existing fans will agree with these sentiments, while new readers might simply shrug, thinking, "Who doesn't hate those characters?"

(amazon.com only has an e-book of the second, but I saw it at Borders yesterday)
