    I guess I should feel really vapid that I'm currently working my way through a 40 issue stack of US Weeklys I found at a used bookstore. Especially since everyone's reading actual literature

    I'm actually reading a knitting book called Stitch 'n Bitch. I'm knitting a cute bunny bag from it.

    I have a subscription to The National Enquirer. It comes every Tuesday afternoon and I read it cover to cover.

    I used to buy the N'tl Enquirer, The Star, and the Globe, but I had to cut back on my spending; good thing the local library carries them

    Um, Tex, if the library carries those papers/magazines, isn't that counter-productive?

    Just to clarify, Coraline has some very frightening imagery, it's for older children, not little ones. I would recommend it for the tween set, for a break from Harry Potter and the Olsen twins. A mature pre-teen reader would likely appreciate the unusual story and quality writing.
    I think I'm going to check out "Coraline" and "American Gods". Thanks for the recommendation!

    Personally, I don't think you could go wrong with any Gaiman book, Scarlett.

    OMG, Sleepy, I bought that book because I want to learn to knit and they have cool projects in it. Like not stuff your grandma would make (not that there's anything wrong with Grammy's sweaters ). I want to make the monkey bag. Only thing is, I have zero experience in knitting, so I think I might need another resource to get the basics down.

    I'm finishing a book I forgot I started a while ago, Don DeLillo's White Noise--that doesn't mean it's a bad book, in fact it's excellent, a brilliant, sort of Vonegutty (I just made up a new word ) look at the cult of popular culture and modern society. But since I juggle several books at a time (and keep them in different places so I have something to read in the car, or at the beach, etc.) it just got misplaced. Anyway, I read it because Chuck Palahniuk cites him as one of his influences. It's fantastic, DeLillo's descriptions are wry and dispassionate but with such on-target observations on contemporary life. Poetic without sentimentality--like a post-modern John Donne stuck in a shopping mall.

    Well, because of the "Oprah Winfrey Book Club" I'm actually reading Anna Karinina. I'm half-way through part 6 and i'ts actually pretty good. I usually don't read classic novels like this but I'm actually enjoying it.
