  3. I'm midway through 2666 and currently taking a break. It is, as I've said on the blog, a hefty tome! :-)

  4. Nothing I've read in your pile but a lot of titles I'm curious about. I did pick up Revolutionary Road but it didn't feel like the right book for now - one day though.

  5. I haven't read any but I am listening to 'The Hour I first Believed' now and I really, really like it. It is typical Wally Lamb, through and through.

  9. Thanks for linking to LLM, Sandra.
    I saw the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I like Fitzgerald. I should read the book. Great books,too. I really need to pick up some adult literature and fiction. It's so easy to get caught up in YA and children's. I am always fantasizing about a girl coming to me for a recommendation. (For those who don't know, I'm a voluntary librarian in an all-girl agency.)

  10. You've got a lot of good books to read (at least I've heard they're good). The only one I've read is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

  11. I haven't read any of these, but I wouldn't mind hearing what you think of them if you have a chance to post the reviews. ;) Happy reading!
