Jabber,

Thanks for the extra info about Joyce Meyer. I'll try to add her books to my reading list.

So glad you enjoyed the recent Boomer Women's World New Year's message. If anyone would like to see what I said about Norman Vincent Peale, and is NOT on the NABBW mailing list - my holiday letter is posted at BWW - Happy New Year

Joyce Meyer is one totally on the point woman. I hope you can see her programs,and read her many books - she really brings the issues to the fore, from an edge that is where our generation is at..Plus on her program, that lady knows how to dress and keep it current (sad sideline, I know, but who of us does't need that perk? Joyce Meyer,she has a good ken of life as it rocks us, and she justs get to the business of things....I hope you can see her programs on tv...they are worthy of getting up really early and tuning in!

Water for Elephants..now a good and ponderous read, and so worthy! Read on, girls, it's all good! no matter what you pick up and deign to, it's all just reading and wonderful, and benefits we take some from it. Don't you know, our literature and reading teachers from long and well ago are so happy we keep our eyes and minds to what they taught us to appreciate!

got that, his autobiograhpy is really a wonderous ride. Reading it now. I am just so annoyed they want to change his words. It's just so wrong on so many levels. Wasn't he such a character in his life, despite his hardships? What an consummate American Author.

Huck Finn made news over here today. If there is anything that makes me cross is when folks tamper with Classic literature and history.

I've been trying to read LITTLE WOMEN but I just can't get through it! I know it's a classic and all that, but I find myself skimming pages. Too much author intrusion and preachiness. I just finished Fannie Flagg's I STILL DREAM ABOUT YOU and enjoyed it. That's more my style.

A plug for my own book is included in my signature! It's a story of three Baby Boomer women who search for their high school steadies.

Amen to that. If we took everything out of books that might be offensive, there wouldn't be much left to read!

I loved Water for Elephants. Not the sort of thing I usually read -- man's point of view -- but it was fascinating. A glimpse at a time and way of life that I knew almost nothing about.

Re Jodi Picoult: LOVE her books. My favorite so far is My Sister's Keeper. It was made into a movie, but I haven't seen it because I'm afraid it will disappoint me.

I read My Sister's Keeper and I saw the movie (after I read the book). They changed the ending in the movie (Jodi Picoult used to have a statement on her website that once she sold the rights to the book she had no control over what they did in the movie, it might still be there I haven't looked). I don't know that I'd go so far as to say the movie was a disappointment -- it's still a good movie -- but you just need to be aware that unlike some movies I've seen where I've read the book and they followed the book pretty closely, this one had a very different ending. And as usual -- the book was better!!
