  1. I have Shelter Me just waiting to be read and I really want to read Little Bee! Can't wait to hear what you think about Wiesel's book. Night was so powerful and moving.

    I'm currently reading Living Dead Girl and to be honest it is gripping and horrific. I'm also reading Stuck in the Middle which is a compilation of 17 comics all about being in middle school...that one makes me laugh!

  3. I wish I could get through so many. I'm almost done with Who By Fire by Diana Spechler and I'm reading A Cool Moonlight by Angela Johnson tonight because I need a break and I've been wanting to reads this children's book.

  4. I have tried to get through Ulysses a million times. Frankly, the book scares me a bit. I do love Elie Wiesel. He is one of my favorites.
