12544 I read it today. Still mulling it over. I did learn a lot about Chinese history. I knew some of the WWII stuff but not the immigration interrogations or the Confessions era.

12544 I finished Mudbound. It wasn't my cup of tea. I know some people have really liked it. For me, it was too careful and I just didn't get swept up in the story.
Started Bless Me Ultima and Gods Behaving Badly. Four books going now, sigh, I have got to quit doing that!

12544 trying to slog my way through Mudbound. Not liking it so far. I have another book I keep dipping into called Primitive People: A Novelbut I'm trying to stay focused. sigh. so many books, so little time. I'm giving Mudbound until Page 50 before I throw in the towel.

12544 Glenda - Try bookmooch.com. You will have to list some books to trade and there is no guarantee but it's worth a try. As long as you have Internet and a Post office nearby then you can use it.

12544 I wouldn't mind reading this. I was going to try another book by Lisa See, who would be a new author for me but I'm good with Shanghai Girls

12544 I finished The Passage by Justin Cronin, gave up on The Pastures of Heaven by John Steinbeck. I had ordered The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for my niece through Bookmooch.com but when it came I thought, what the heck, and started reading it. Yesterday I toured some garage sales/thrift stores/bookstore and picked up Bucket Nut by Liza Cody so have started it as well. It's about a female wrestler detective in England, I think she's supposed to be Cockney from the way the dialect is written. Whatever, it's lighthearted and fun and most definitely a departure from the heaviness of The Passage. I've also never read a "cozy" mystery quite like it.

12544 I'm new to goodreads. I belong to two other groups, TNNBC and Constant Reader. I hung out in Chick Lit for a while but it wasn't my thing. I'm hanging here as well trying to decide if I've room on my plate for a third group or if this is a good fit for me.
My current reads are:
