Hi all, My Fiction picks:
1. I just finished reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I was born in Georgia and grew up in North Carolina. My Mom's from Jackson Miss and Dad's from Jasper Ala so this one really hit home. It's about black maids in Mississippi in the early 1960's. Some of you guys cracked me up with comments about some people in Turkey because you would have been fired in my former Corporate America world. So maybe it's not a pick for a discussion but I still think it's a good read.
2. The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Settenfield I think it makes a great summer light read.

The new 112 page soft cover book by Jimmy Gillentine called
Of Blood and the Moon. It is a suspense thriller and what a book, I just got it yesterday and can't put it down.

I finished our Kathryn Magendie's book and loved it. I felt like I'd lost a few friends when I finished. Her writing style is incredibly good ladies. I'm not kidding. I can't recall reading a book that has such fun dialogue and such endearing children. Loved it.

chatty, one fo the next books I'm reading is one you suggested, Voluntary Madness. It's about the woman who checked herself in to the psychiatric ward, though she isn't mentally ill. I can't wait to read it. The author is Norah Vincent. She also wrote the book, which I didn't read but heard about, Self-Made Man wehre she goes undercover as a man. Sounds like a really neat investigative journalist. I'll let you know what I think.

I read Kathryn S's THE HELP and reviewed it for Osondu Booksellers review site smile

I'm between books. Looking forward to the next one. Just read a collection of stories called "Married to the Military" by Terry Rollins. Not my usual kind of reading, but she is a local writer and I happened to walk in the bookstore while she was sitting there at a table with books, so I bought one to support another writer. It read quickly. It read more like "essays" than short stories, but the stories were poignant.

Dots, I wish we were closer, too, for many reasons besides book sharing.

Here's a website WEB OF DEBT for a quick read, if unable to read the book, WEB of DEBT. Girls, I'm not a gloom and doomER, but I AM ONE WHO BELIEVES we're in for a rough storm... really rough. Like I tell my daughters, 'don't get caught up in hysteria, but be informed.'

gims, I jsut sent this link to my son to see if it's a book he'd like to read. I think he might. Thanks.

chatty, I've only read about 15 pages, but I think I'm going to love it. Did you read her first book?

cookie, how is prayers for sale? Sounds interesting. And please keep me posted on Susan Weed's book. I should probably read that one if you like it.

I love hearing what others are reading.
