Barbara, I loved that book! Sure went through a lot of kleenex reading it. I'm reading "A Goose In Toulouse: and Other Culinary Adventures In France " by Mort Rosenblum. What a fun read! Here's part of a review:

A Goose in Toulouse examines some of France's most significant contributions to the table in a series of essays covering Roquefort cheese, cassoulet, champagne, goat cheese, truffles.

I just got done reading Peter Robinson's latest book in the Chief Inspector Alan Banks series. It is called "Friend Of The Devil". I loved all of his books, but this one is absolutely the best. Can hardly wait for the next one.

I just finished Eclipse which is the third book in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyers. I am a middle school teacher and a lot of my students are reading these books. I was TOTALLY hooked on this series and flew through the books!! The fourth is set to come out this August and they are putting out a movie in December! The story is one of a Vampire, Edward, who falls in love with a human, Bella. These are great books but let me warn you....if you start reading Twilight make sure you have on hand the the time to read New Moon and Eclipse!!!

Loprraine,
I loved the book too, a friend told me they were doing the movie on Life Time this week and she said it was not very well done.

I just got the new Harlan Coben one - Hold Tight, starts out fast just like all of his books, can't put them down!
