    I really enjoyed it. Read it a few years ago. The interactions between father and son were so interesting and resonant to me I bought a copy for my dad for Father's Day...and he hated it.

    Is she the one that wrote Charming Billy, too? I have that one on my shelf, but I've never read it.

    Nope. Charming Billy is by Alice McDermott, but I'm not familiar with her work.

    Just finished Orange Crush By Tim Dorsey, I have now read all his novels. He is in Mystery section.

    brenna, How are you liking The Posionwood Bible? I loved it!

    Charming Billy is such a good book. I enjoyed it a ton!

    We have to read The Scarlet Letter in Honors English. It's kinda cool because our teacher bought us all paperback copies of it so we could highlight and write things in the margins. I understand the book a whole lot more now than the first time I read it. I didn't realize how much symbolism was within the piece. That means more work...

    I never post here because I figure no one else reads the kind of stuff I do I rather enjoy textbooks.
    Right now I'm reading "Sex and Gender-The Human Experience" by J.Doyle and M.Paludi

    Wow, I am so jealous. You all seem to be able to read real books and I am forced to sit and read horribly textbooks for months on end.
    I am definitely jealous!

    Stargazer, textbooks are awesome!
    My current one is "Human Physiology" by L. Vander. It is definitely a thrilling read.

    I'm kinda weird like that, I guess. It's not all textbooks, mostly just subjects like Psychology, Sociology, or History. I wouldn't want to sit down with a textbook on Math or Chemistry
