    I've started reading Death of Innocence by Mamie Till-Mobley and Christopher Benson.
    Ludicrous speed!

    I just finished "1984" by George Orwell (BTW - don't know how I made it through high school and college and never had to read it). I really liked it - the complete psychological control of Big Brother over its subjects was facinating to me.

    I'm also several years behind the Harry Potter obsession, but finally read the first book a few weeks ago...

    I'm just starting "Stormy Weather" by Carl Hiaasen - in honor of hurricane season.

    I'm reading The Devil Wears Prada right now. (I have to get in a few easy books before school starts on Monday ) I'm not liking it very much. I find myself falling asleep after 1 chapter. I do not recommend it.

    I'm reading Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsiella. I read and enjoyed Can You Keep a Secret? so I thought I'd try these. They're fun.
    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me

    I am reading An Underground Education by Richard Zacks. It is described as an unauthorized and outrageous supplement to everything you thought you knew about art,sex,business,crime,science ,medicine,etc. It is filled with amazing stories and facts.

    Can't take a good day without a bad one
    Don't feel just to smile until I had one
    Where did I learn?
    I make a fuss about a little thing
    The rhyme is losing to the riddling

    I'm starting Tara Bray Smith's memoir West of Then. I love getting free books in the mail.

    I have a stack of books, too, from one of my many forays into book clubs. Still to read:
    Lewis De Soto A Blade of grass - set in South Africa - apartheid issues on an Afrikaner farm, (I love books about Africa)
    Dan Brown Angels and Demons,
    Neil Gaiman Coraline- a children's book but it looks verry interesting,
    Robin Schwarz Night Swimming- what would you do if you found out you only had one year to live...,
    Sue Grafton R is for Ricochet, (I love this series)
    Billie Letts Shoot the Moon - local author and also wrote Where the Heart is,
    and Helen Fieldings latest, Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination.

    I just finished the Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic series. I was a little glad to finish them. They started off very funny but by the end I was just shaking my head.

    Currently I am reading The Scarlet Letter. Not as bad as I thought it would be.
