thanks for the info on the book, pam.
don't think i'd like American psycho; that kind of book/movie just give me the creeps.
Happy 18th to your son!
i'd LOVE to go to Amsterdam to see the secret annex. i might ask for that for my 25th birthday or for next Christmas.
i haven't seen the new version of Anne Frank, but i'm well aware of the fact that she and her Mother shared some animosity. even in the version Otto Frank published that was evident.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink & rock on, PITTSBURGH-
yes give it another try. Make sure you at least get to the part in the book where they get to the school. Some people find the beginning of the book a bit boring and tedious to get through (I was not one of those people), but once they get to school it becomes a lot more enjoyable for some people. Since you love to read so much, I think you should try again some day. Not everyone likes these books of course, but I hope you try again and like it
I'll dig it up GB and try again. Finding it will be a little hard though. It's in one of those boxes upstairs that we didn't unpack when we moved a few years ago. lol... it's a good thing we have a big house...we have TOO much stuff.
