Julie Ahhh, one of my all-time favorites! I hope you enjoy this. I'll see your knitting projects and raise you two scrapbooks, guitar lessons and a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle of wine corks that matches- to our despair- the varying shades of our dining room table. I'm managing 3 pieces a day. :D

Chris :-))

Julie, if you can believe it, I remember way back when you read this on the CLBB and how much you loved it and it's been on my list ever since! I loved his book, "An Equal Music," and since he is also a poet, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Or, let's put it this way, anything can be better than last (this?) winter's read, "An American Tragedy," a tragedy in that I actually finished reading it and case in point of when the movie was far better than the book! :-))

And I think you've got me beat with that jigsaw puzzle, holy moly! ;-) Good luck!

I tried to read Suitable Boy but struggled with the names and keeping up with who was who so I gave it to my sister and she loved it.

That happened to me too. About 300-400 pages in, I *finally* got it. But, I'm 1,000 pages plus, and still going back to the family trees! :-))

Sally Bushnell Hi Chris
Well done you. My sister said it was hard and she is an avid reader!!!
Do you know there is a sequel out now and \i think it's called A Suitable A Girl.

You're right on the title, but I heard it was coming out in 2013? But if it's out, perhaps next winter's read! :-))

Oh thanks for that I wasn't sure if it was already out there, I shall have to buy that for my sister now!

I've read that and I was only "eh" about it. For a good long book, I'd recommend "Sacajawa" by Anna Lee Waldo. Unfortunately, it's longer at 1424 pages, but I remember pulling an all nighter in college so I could finish it!

Erin I used to own a copy. Funny, I have no idea what happened to it. I read it in the mid 90s.


message 12: by Erin (new)

Erin Wow, I remember no racy scenes in Sacajawea. I'd re-read it if it wasn't for the fact that it is as long as it is!
