    Aw Lucy, no fair! How'd you manage to snag a copy, through your job? You'll have to post a recap!

    Yes, it's a work thing. A new perk. I'd recap, but I don't want to spoil it. Anyone interested can PM me.

    That Lucy and her snazzy pre-release book-reading. *sigh*

    I'm currently reading Main Street . . . I started it a while ago, got busy, forgot where I was, so just started over. Brilliant piece of literature, and nice, easy reading.

    Lucy, I'm turning green with envy! You definitely need to at least give us a review when you're done (with no spoilage, of course! )

    I'm about half way through with A Venetian Affair now, but I'm also reading an anthology called The Kindness of Strangers. It's a collection of stories from all sorts of people about kindnesses they've encountered in their travels. Each story is no more than 5 or 6 pages long (most are less). It's a nice little book to help restore your faith in people.... especially in light of the events in London.

    I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm reading Rage by Jonathan Kellerman right now. I mentioned I was done with Kellerman in hardcover but (1) it was a gift to me and (2) it's actually pretty good, like early Kellerman.

    Any of the other Kellerman fans on this board start this one yet?

    I read a while back and absolutely loved it.

    I stay away from Kellerman in hardcover, Phat. His are such a quick read that I can't justify spending that amount of money. I usually wait until they come out in paperback - even then, $8 is a lot.

    Please give a review when you're done!

    I'm a totally on and off again reader, but I've been on a streak after ripping through the first two Jennifer Weiner books and re-reading 2 Anne Rice books in the past week or so. (the evil treadmill thing will do that to ya cause I have to find a distraction when I'm walking so I just read like a maniac)

    This weeks easy reading so far was My Horizontal Life (a collection of one-night stands) by Chelsea Handler. Really fun and quick read, perfect for when you only have a few moments at a time cause they are all short story type recounts of odd situations.

    Next up is more Jennifer Weiner with Little Earthquakes.....if only I can find some spare time with my insane work hours this week.

    Rereading Antamoy of a Murder by Robert Travers for the first time since high school. I'm enjoying it much more then I did in high school.

    When I'm done with that I have Southern Fried Divorce to read. A friend said I may like it.
