My daughter tried the Golden Compass series and didn't find it grabbed her. So I never bothered. I think the movie might be Ok though.

Just finished So B. It by Sarah Weeks. It's a beautiful and touching story.

My daughter swears that "Atonement" is great and better than the movie--I loaned it to a traveling friend on a five hour flight from from Frankfurt to Kazakhstan and she didn't lift her head once and she had seen the movie. She said it was "excellent" and better than the movie. So I'm looking forward to reading it whenever I get it back.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I just finished Ken Follett's epic "World Without End", which was a sequel to his "Pillars of the Earth".

Good read, if you can put up with 900 pages of small print

Caine Mutiny - one of my all time favorite books, the one I read was written by Herman Wouk.

I don't seem to have time to read much these days. I am listening to a book on CD though. WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. I'm only into the first chapter but so far it's great.

I am rereading 'Why didn't they ask Evans?' by Agatha Christie (Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors)
