I'm reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. I just finished Sing You Home, and wanted to read another of hers...19 minutes seemed like a no-brainer! I checked it out from the library on a Nook. Not sure I like reading this way yet. It is easy on the eyes, but I'm not sure about the fact that you don't get the whole page...
I am against Nooks, etc. on principle, but I was sure wishing I had one yesterday when I had time to spend in a waiting room and discovered I had forgotten my current SK paperback! (supposed to be starting Firestarter)
Got my Grant edition of The Wind Thru The Keyhole yesterday, started it last night and whipped thru 70 pages! LOVING IT!!!!
I really liked Sing You Home...it was not what I expected, dealt with a controversial subject, and was well written. It made me cry and made me think. I would highly suggest reading it!
*On a more personal note, Catina, leave this one for a few years down the road...
Enid Blyton -The Magic Wishing Chair (to my 7 year old daughter)
I am still reading A Winter's Haunting...just can't get into it, no matter how much I want to. I read 10 pages last night about a Paris trip the main character took years before and was remembering...I think I know how it will tie in, but it just didn't seem to have any relevance to the storyline at all. I'm determined to finish it, though. I still want to know what is going on.
Thank you, I appreciate that a lot, Tower.
Picoult tends to explore controversial subject matter. In particular, I like the fact that she uses multiple POV's, which allows the reader to see the story from a myriad of different perspectives. And she's known for shocking, often heartbreaking twists-and-turns.
I'm really glad you enjoyed it!
An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917 - 1963 by Robert Dallek.
Good book so far.
I dont think its a coincidence that after finishing 11/22/63 a few months ago that I found a bio on JFK to check out.
