    If you liked the easy-flowing, chatty southern feel of Cold Sassy, you might enjoy Lee Smith's books. Appalachian lit. She makes it look so easy *sigh*
    I'll have to check those out, I really did enjoy Cold Sassy Tree....I like those easy flowing slice of life books rather then something with real drama. I'm not sure why, guess I'm not in the mood for it when I read.

    We were just assigned to start reading The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. It's pretty good so far!

    Just finished "Cathedral" by Nelson Demille. I found it so intense at times that I had to put it down although the book as a whole is basically "unputdownable". Thank goodness I know that the Cathedral still stands or I don't know how I could have gotten through it. The suspense is incredible.

    Needing something not at all suspenseful while I recover from Mr. Demille, I selected "Marjorie Morningstar" by another of my favorite authors Herman Wouk. So far I am enjoying it immensely.

    Marjorie Morningstar is my favourite book of all time. I first read it when I was 12 (my mom had an original hardcover copy from '51) and it's, let's just say, quite a few years later and I am STILL re-reading it.
    BTW - do not, under any circumstances, watch the movie that was made (starring Natalie Wood). It was bad beyond belief and actually omitted a couple of major characters (including Marsha).

    I just finished John Irving's "Widow For One Year". I definitely liked it, but didn't love it.

    I just started "The Pelican Brief". I'm a Grisham virgin so I'm looking forward to it.

    Oooh, I love those books. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Right now I'm reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It probably would be better if it wasn't for school and the teacher who was teaching it to us wasn't horrible, but it's still ok.
