I recently read the Memory Keeper's Daughter - it was well-written but for some reason I just didn't like the story.

I liked the Memory Keepers Daughter, but I had a baby sister with Downs syndrome born during a time that they were hidden  away.  I could relate to the story; although my sisters story was different.

Literature Approaches To Fiction, Poetry and Drama by Robert DiYanni 2nd Edition, This book has Hemingway, Frost, Fitzgerald, Poe, Dickinson and all their classics plus hundreds of poems and short stories, I'm simply loving it because there are exercises in understanding and deciphering some of these complicated and intense great writings. Call me a nerd but I'm really learning alot once I understand these stories, sometimes it takes a long time!

I'm reading something called Boogaloo on Second Avenue at the moment, picked at random from the library shelf. Not sure where it's going yet, but it's easier to read than the Dosteovsky that I was trying to get through before. Not in the right frame of mind for that right now.

Cell... Stephen King.. my favorite author.  :2thumbsup;


Susie,

I just read Cell, how did you like it?  I thought it was a pretty good book.  Plus, he mentions a couple of the towns that I have lived in, in the book.

Skyedog... believe it or not I haven't finished it yet.. I have a hard time concentrating when reading now so I hardly pick up a book.. sometimes I'll read a few pages in bed before going to sleep...  but .. so far so good.. I love Stephen King.

This is all I have on my reading list for this summer....

1.  Historian
2.  My Life by Bill Clinton
3.  Wicked....

The first two are huge books so that will take up a lot of time....I plan to buy book seven of Harry Potter and I have yet to read 4,5, and 6.

The Book of the Dead - by Patricia Cornwell.  I read all of hers, but she is getting kinda depressing lately.  On the lighter side, I also like Nicolas Sparks.  Just finished his latest a few weeks ago, The Choice.
