    Magic's Design by Cat Adams -- paranormal based on Ukranian folk tales and Pysanky which is an eastern European craft of decorating eggs. Quite fun and informative. No vampires or werewolves but there is magic.

    That sounds like something I would like. I think I will check it out, thanks Bearcata!

    I've got The Help on reserve at the library, but naturally I'm one of many in line for it.

    Anne Tyler has never written a bad book, and I think she's outdone herself with Back When We Were Grownups. (I know it's not her latest but it's the newest release of hers that I've gotten my hands on.) I thought nothing would top Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant but this one comes close. I'm delaying finishing this book because I'm loving it so much.

    AJ, The Help is definitely worth the wait!

    I think the wait for The Help is so long at the library because so many of us have reserved it.

    The author of The Help appeared here last week at a local bookstore and I'm sorry I didn't get to see her. But sometimes you have to buy a copy just to stand in line. . . anyway, I find it fascinating that the themes in that book have touched so many people.

    I'm still finishing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

    Has anyone read "Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story"? It looks intriguing.

    I actually think I would have stood in line to get an autographed copy of The Help! If she comes here, I'm in!!! I am frustrated that there are only a couple of events listed on her event page.
