Thanks, Katie, I happen to love Betty White and she is so with it at her age.....I sometimes catch her on Ellen when I'm home as they are both animal lovers.........thanks for the recommendation as I like to read biographies and autob.

I just finished "Victoria's Daughters" which gave me a lot of insight to the start of WWI. I'm still reading "The Story of English" to my freinds, and am reading one of the Jane Austin copies that seem to be going around. I liked the last book by the Afghani writer much more than "Kite Runner" --Kite was just too sad and too unhappy an ending. A good book, but it left me depressed for days.

Reading Blueberry Muffin Murder by Joanne Fluke. I like her recipes that she includes in the book for blueberry goodies.

I just finished "The Forbidden" by Beverly Lewis, and now reading, "Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady" by Florence King. So far, so good! The "Forbidden" was really good...its the second book in the Amish series, "The Courtship of Nellie Fisher".

I love Beverly Lewis! I read her other Amish series The Heritage of Lancaster County. That was good. I grew up near an Amish community so it was easy to imagine their lifestyle. I'll have to look into her other books. Right now I'm on a Faye Kellerman run. I just finished False Prophet and have started Grievious Sins. My reading will be curtailed in another week when classes start up again. Then it will be reading textbooks again! Oh! Speaking of textbooks, I read Language in Hand:why sign came before speech. It was a really interesting book about the theory that language grew out of gestures first before humans developed control of their voices. If you are interested in language and anthropology you'd enjoy this book. It was fairly easy to read.
