Just started reading Freakonomics today, I wonder how long it'll take me to read it.


That's an excellent book and an easy read.

I am hoping to read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult soon.

It's really good, but have Kleenex handy. I kind of admit, I'm looking forward to the movie version of this.

I AM NOW going to start reading this finally. I had to wait for the library, but I was just about to go out and buy my own copy, because I bet I'll wanna re-read this, but it came in, lol, so I am not going to bother with that.

Don't worry Cindy, I am not going to cry! (*is secretly crying as I write simply a post about the book*)

Finished finally. Just in time for the film.

I didn't cry. I wanted to. But just before the twist, I guessed that something like that was up.. and so I was prepared for it.. wrong person though. wow.

Right now I'm reading this book: A History Of The World In Six Glasses by Tom Standage
So far I've read about beer, wine and liquor. Coffee is the next section.

I'm currently reading Aftermath by LeVar Burton. We elected a black president 4 years earlier than he predicted. As the title indicates, it not a very happy book, but I'm thinking it's a good book so far.

How did you not cry??? Okay, yeah... I didn't cry either, but I felt the lump in my throat.

I don't see how anyone could have seen that particular ending coming. It shocked me a little.

Well, I heard Jodi always have twists at the end, so I figured something would happen, and then the dad got called on duty, and then I thought Campbell and Julia were the victims. Turned out it was the little girl instead. And I figured Kate would die..


Starting The Pact tonight.

Ooh, Andrew you're reading Jodi Picoult?
I just skimmed the thread, so sorry if you've already read this one - but Handle with Care is my absolute favorite, it's fantastic. And Change of Heart (but that's probably just the religion buff within me)

And, I've been on a political book kick for the past few months - I'm currently reading Slander by Ann Coulter and rereading Dreams from My Father by President Obama
