    The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

    Definitely a "chick book", but excellent!

    I'm reading the Nanny Diaries right now. Have many other English-single girl-longs for boyfriend type books ready and waiting to read. What got me started was the book Jemima J by Jane Green.

    Another good beach read (or bath tub book, as I call them) is Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. Been out a while, but anyone who grew up reading Judy Blume will love this book.

    I have a favorite from a while ago, too.

    Castaways of the Flying Dutchman by Brian Jacques. It is one of his only books not based on any part of the Redwall series. It is based, actually, on an old sea tale. Pretty good story. I really liked it!

    My favorite book is at http://ears.ashyre.com (a story my friend and I wrote in high school) . No, honestly, I haven't read them recently, but two of my favorite books are "The Bluest Eye" and "Song of Solomon" by Toni Morrison. I also like everything by Ann Petry, Gloria Naylor, Zora Neale Hurston, etc. "Sophie's Choice" by Styron is a great book too! Of course, I primarily read non-fiction and most normal people give me weird looks when they see my Summer Reading Lists...

    My mom keeps trying to get me to read that book, but I have stacks and stacks of books lined up. I'm going to get around to it this Summer, though!

    The "Poisonwood Bible" is one of my all-time favorite books. Another good one is "The Secret Life of Bees". So, so, so wonderful.

    Right now I'm reading "The Life of Pi" which I'm loving, and I'm listening to "Eat Cake" which is deadly for my diet. It's about a woman who relaxes by baking cakes, and every chapter has very descriptive narrative about a different kind of cake.
