    Just finished Bridget Jones's Diary, and LOVED it. I'll che3ck out the others you've recommended.

    Just started Spring Collection by Judith Krantz. I'm about half way through, and all I can say is there sure are a lot of explicit sex scenes.

    Ok, I interrupted The Shipping News to read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, which was pretty good. It was a much easier read than "Shipping" is turning out to be.

    I think I'm gonna give The Shipping News one more chance to entertain me and if it doesn't, I'm off to The Red Tent and A Prayer for Owen Meany, that I've been saving because everyone says how good it is.

    Home to Harmony by Philip Gulley. It's a delightful book.

    I just finished "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" by Mitch Albom--the author of Tuesday's with Morrie. It was extremely easy to read and ultimately a very positive and insightful book.

    If you're looking for something you can read quickly (on a trip) or read in short pieces and still be able to follow (on a train commute each day), it's really a great book for that. The chapters are short.

    Also, obviously, someone dies, so I was a bit concerned that it would be depressing. But it really was not--very enlightening. Leaves you with something to think about in the end. Good book.

    I hadn't read anything since finishing American Gods a couple months ago. I just picked up Silent Witness by Richard North Patterson, though, and it's excellent. I'm 60-70 pages in, and I've already been put through the emotional wringer. What an intense book.

    I loved American Gods. I immediately went out and got Neverwhere and Good Omens (Which Neil Gaiman co-wrote with Terry Pratchard). Both were wonderful too. Good Omens has to be up there with Hitchhiker as one of the funniest books i've ever read.

    I really enjoyed American Gods and Good Omens. You both may enjoy Neil Gaiman's Coraline, too. And don't forget his Sandman graphic novel (read: comic book) series. The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes is a good place to start.

    My significant other found Shopaholic Takes Manhatten in her Easter basket. She seemed to really enjoy it. I'm currently looking for Shopaholic Ties the Knot on EBay so she'll have something to do while I browse the FoRT.

    Just finished "Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas". I listened to the entire book in one sitting. If you need a good cry, this'll do the trick.

    About to start "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown.
