    I read Remember Me. I loved it! I didn't like the other two books in the series though.

    Just picked up a book called "Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities". I'm going to start it on the train today. Anyone read it?

    No, but it sounds interesting. I've always been intrigued by sororities and secret cliques. Is it a non-fiction book?

    I didn't either. I thought he ruined the story so I just ignore the other two books. I do that all the time with things I don't like.
    OT-In fact I refuse to watch more than the first two eps of the last season of Roseanne because I hated it. In my mind the show ended with them winning the lottery.

    Same here. The "I just wanted people to remember me" was a nice ending, and then he had to go and ruin it. The worst was book 3 where she suddenly became this bigshot making movies.
    And yeah, I have the same habit.

    Yes, non-fiction. Hopefully it will be filled with juicy details.

    I can vouch for WEst of Kabul, East of New York, by Tamsin Ansary (think I got his name right). It's a great autobiography by an Afghani-American. The Swallows of Kabul is supposed to be good as well. (woman author, can't remember her name).

    Khaled reminded me of Khalil Gibran - I usually don't read poetry, but he's amazing. Came across his stuff while looking for quotes for a speech for my best friend's wedding 3 years ago. I'll be pulling him out to read tonight.
