Reading The Wedding, by Nicholas Sparks. It is the sequel to the Notebook, so far it is good. Not as good as the Notebook but good.

I just started Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. Pretty good so far.

I'm still reading Paradise Toni Morrison
and just started Vinegar Hill by Manette Ansay
and The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.

Just finished re-reading Lord Of the Flies.
I'd forgotten how much I liked that book.

I love Toni Morrison, but she is not easy to read.


I just reread a book called " The Assistant" by
Bernard Malamud. It was a painful book to read, if that makes any sense. I became involved in the people's lives. A very different time and lifestyle to mine.

Still with Lewis & Clark and the Corps of Discovery. They are on the way back home now.

I agree Pam. I really like her too. BUT, I find myself re-reading line after line because of the way she writes. I think it's the work order that confuses me.

I'm glad you liked it so much! I find myself crying in a lot of her books. It's a good thing, though!
