    Erin, I read it a long time ago, so long ago that I don't really remember anything about the book except that it's very long. (that doesn't help, I know)
    I love you, you love me, we're a happy family...

    I read "She's Come Undone" a while ago too, but I do remember I enjoyed it. Maybe not the best book I've ever read, but enjoyable nonetheless.

    Loved "Nickel and Dimed"!
    Now reading "Amazonia," by James Marcus, who was one of Amazon.com's early employees. He's such an engaging writer, kind of like Sedaris but softer.
    Also if any of you are students of management I highly recommend "The Feiner Points of Leadership," by Michael Feiner. I'm had him as a professor a few years ago and his was by far the best class I took in biz school. He hadn't yet written a book, but when I became a manager I'd refer to my notes and lesson books from that class.

    I'm currently reading A Prayer for Owen Meany - it started out really slow, but I'm starting to enjoy it now.

    I'm enjoying Road To Ruin by Donald Westlake (one of my all time favorite authors).

    I love summer readin'...This weekend, I read two extremely different books.

    One was Ryu Murakami's In the Miso Soup. I enjoyed his edgy, punky opus Coin Locker Babies so I thought I'd give this a try. It was actually a bit different than I anticipated (it's much slighter), but still good--an extremely dark, but morbidly humorous tale about a Japanese tour guide who makes his living ushering Americans through Tokyo's gritty sex trade district, a job he's never really minded until he meets Frank, a mysterious stranger whom our narrator suspects of being the serial murderer who has recently taken the city by storm. Violently dissects the clash of modern Japan and America through wry cross-cultural observations and fascinating sociological insight; not, however, for the faint of heart. Think: Lost in Translation meets American Psycho.

    Well, I finished In the Miso Soup too fast, and since I was visiting my mom's house, I picked up a chick lit paperback: Marian Keyes' Angels. It was amusing, I found myself really rooting for the great characters she develops, and Keyes's style is appealingly like having a great chat with a good girlfriend over tea or perhaps "complicated martinis." My only criticism is that, perhaps being a Los Angeleno, I found her observations on LaLaLand to be fairly cliched. Still, it was fun, and my God, I finished that one in less than a day also!

    I'm reading Pride and Prejudice, since I loved the mini-series. I'm confused as to what 'felicity' means. Happiness at home? I'm loving it so far.
