    Ohhh, Broadway, I just finished it and thought it was wonderful! I bought the trilogy and I'm just starting on The Subtle Knife.

    I'm in the middle of "Emotionally Weird" by Kate Atkinson. It sounds chick-litish, but it's not. My sister got it for me for Christmas; she and I both loved Atkinson's "Behind the Scenes at the Museum" -- sort of a subversive family saga.

    I'm reading Princess: Sultana's Daughters by Jean Sasson. This is the sequel to Princess, the story of a woman growing up in the Saudi royal family. This book is about her daughters. She describes a life of wealth, but no amount of money will buy the women who live there freedom and basic rights. Women are forbidden to drive, they can't travel without permission from husbands or fathers, they wear veils, and at any time they can be divorced, imprisoned or killed by the men who basically own them. Its hard to beleive this goes on.

    I took a break from Michael Crichton's State of Fear and bought, read and finished Nelson Demille's Night Fall, an impulse buy from a Barnes & Noble visit a few nights ago. I couldn't stop turning pages; strange ending, though.

    I'm reading the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, recommended by some of the FoRT readers. I'm about two thirds of the way through the third book, The Amber Spyglass. These are absolutely brilliant, but I don't see them as being "kids books". The Harry Potter books have opened up a whole new genre for me - "young adult" fiction, that I've never considered before.
