Finished My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Absolutely amazing. I loved it and read it all in one night because I couldn't put it down! Now I have to go to the library to check out her other books.



Read Demystifying Anorexia Nervousa by Alexander Lucas. Totally sucked and very outdated.



Also read Overcoming Eating Disorders, Recovery from Anorexia, Bulimia, and Compulsive Overeating by Kathleen Zraly and David Swift. I liked this one way better. Very informative and useful (to me at least).

Just started Big Sur by Kerouac yesterday. Wow.....very very powerful novel..I'm having a hard time putting it down!!



My city always has a Kerouac-fest this time of year with films and readings and pub crawls, hah. I guess this year is the 50th anniversary of the publishing of Dharma Bums, so they're really hyping that up. I honestly didn't dig Dharma Bums as much, a bit too spiritual for my tastes. I want to read Visions of Gerard after I finish Sur.

I picked up Cross-X by Joe Miller at the library today. It's an interesting look into high school policy in the inner city and the Urban Debate Leagues that have popped up across the country.

Fadeaway, I enjoyed My Sister's Keeper too, but read another book by that author and did not like it as much. Are you familiar with her other stuff? If so, which ones would you recommend?



I am reading Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay right now and really enjoying it. I didn't think I would, and the promos for the tv show never interested me. But this is actually a really interesting mystery, and Dexter is a unique character.

I just finished reading Karen Dawn's "Thanking the Monkey". It is what pushed me into becoming vegan. I was fairly close to being vegan already, but I still ate eggs and cheese from time to time. After reading that book, I couldn't handle it anymore. I love how there are lots of little notes, cartoons and quotes from people in it. Also the format was great in holding my attention. I would recommend it to anybody and every body.

I am not familiar with her other stuff at all. I've never heard of her until I read My Sister's Keeper. Apparently she's really popular though? I did go to the library looking for more books but according to the librarian its hard for them to keep them on the shelves. I lucked out and got one book called Plain Truth. I haven't finished it just yet but so far it seems interesting yet predictable. I'm hoping it won't turn out that way in the end though. My Sister's Keeper had a lot of twists and suprises so I'm hoping this one will be similar.

Gang Leader for a Day - Sudhir Venkatesh.



It's the true story of an Indian sociology student who befriended the leader of one of the most infamous Chicago gangs in the late 80s. I recommend it to anyone who likes stepping into another world and reading about memorable characters. I have a feeling this book is going to end on a tragic note, however.

I just read the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and am now reading The Beach House by Jane Green. The twilight series was very fun to read!

I finished reading "The Pillars of the Earth" recently - it was pretty good - very suspenseful, and hugely entertaining - also a little intense in spots. I would recommend it - it's a huge book, and I really like that - it just kept going, and going, and going....

I am now reading two books. Veganomics since I am going vegan once I go grocery shopping on Friday and Book Ends by Jane Green. The Veganomics book is actually written quite well and keeps me entertained. I just hope the recipes are good and somewhat easy. As soon as a recipe looks hard or enlists too many ingredients I tend to give up. I just simply hate cooking but am hoping to change that!

How is the Jane Green book? I've been thinking about trying something of hers.



I just finished Baby Proof by Emily Giffin. Not sure yet what I'll start next. I've got over 50 books queued up on my Kindle. I need to stop buying books until I read a few more, but I'm addicted...lol.

The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe

As soon as I finish I plan on watching the movie, then figuring out what to read next! Damn school for taking away time to read leisurely.

I really like Jane Green books, I have maybe 3 more of hers to read and I will have read them all. The characters come to life in her books and they are quite humorous. If you like Emily Griffin I would say you will like Jane Green. I like both authors and they are similar.

Cool. I'll definitely try one out then.



Edit: You and I must really have similar taste in books. Was just browsing back earlier in the thread and saw you also like Dean Koontz... one of my other favorite authors. I'm actually reading Hideaway now.
