    Hey fellow Fort readers...you all got me reading again!! I used to be an avid reader...but the stuff in my life somehow made me put the piles of books on the "back burner"....this thread motivated me to pick them up again!

    In the last week or so, I read Revenge of a Middle Aged Woman by Elizabeth Buchan (pretty good in an inspiring I-am-woman-hear-me-roar kind of way). Then I read The Lovely Bones (couldn't put it down..I liked it...but it was odd). Now I am reading Nickel and Dimed - it's facinating! On my reading to-read pile are In a Dark Place by Ray Garton (someone recommended it in the Haunted thread and I found it used at a reasonable price) and I ordered The Good Wife Strikes Back also by Elizabeth Buchan. I bet half.com is lovin' my business these day

    I just finished Confessions of a Shopaholic. I adored it. I can't wait to read the next two. I just love light chick lit.

    I read Can You Keep A Secret yesterday. It's by Sophie Kinsella, the same author that writes the Shopaholic series. I've never read those because my library doesn't carry them. Secret was really cute. I'll have to look at the used book stores for the Shopaholic books.

    My summer reading is Janice Dickinson's "I'm Fake and Everything About Me Is Perfect"... it's hilarious.

For example, one of my favorites is "Kaffir Boy" by Mark Mathabane, which is a coming of age story about a young african man in apartheid South Africa. I also enjoyed "Angela's Ashes", by Frank McCourt, about a boy growing up in Ireland who immigrated to America.
    You should also try The Color of Water: A Black Mans Tribute To his White Mother by James Mcbride, I thought it was very powerful. I just finished reading The Devil Wears Prada, obviously misguided by a good review i once read in the New York Times, that book was crap on a stick. I am about to read Fast Girls: Teenage Tribes and the myth of the slut by Emily White after rave reviews from a friend.

    Im feeling alot better now.. We've had a team meeting and all my personalities are now working as one!! ... seriously

    Finished Pride and Predjudice, a most civil book for those of discernment. Pray, sister should I try Emma next or Sense and Sensibility? For you Jane Austen fans out there, have you checked out The House of Pemberley on the web. It's more fun than a militia of single officers showing up in your village. Lady Catherine doles out advice to such fictional characters as Neo and Scarlett O'Hara. Wishing all you gentle readers much felicity.

    Kind sir, please provide a link to The House of Pemberley for the many admirers of Miss Austen.

    Being as such that Emma is my favoured Austen heroine (next to the esteemed Miss Elizabeth) I highly recommend you check that one out next.

    You have my humble gratitude, Miss Jane. Now I must be off to sew my Lady Catherine gown in preparation for the Hallowe'en Ball. Unlike you un-married ladies who have much time on your hands to write letters.
