19519 Dr. appt for me this Thursday including a mammogram. Once a year without fail!
Right now I am watching a DVD of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and really enjoying it...how about you?

19519 ugh! I also hate grocery shopping. Such a thankless task. And still, the family will complain that there is "nothing to eat!"

Right now my kids are packing for camp, and my husband for a business trip. I am going to have some bachelorette time. I am planning outings with Friends, movies, reading and sewing. So, plans this week, how about you?

19519 Truly a classic...I will definitely re-read it this month so I can join the discussions.

19519 Hmmmmm. What am I missing? Not interested in this one so far. The parts about Chicago history are boring me, and the parts about the phsycopath are chilling. I may have to move on to my reread of Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and maybe come back to this one...

19519 I am also going with one I would love to re-read:
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn  by Betty Smith

and for longest title, The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death  Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal by Laurie Notaro
"The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal. Sounds funny!

19519 The movie is pretty good, as I recall. Can't remember many details, but my husband even remarked on its merit-so that has got to count for something!

19519 I tried reading it a few years ago, and the strangeness got to me so that I never really did get into it...is it worth it to try again?

19519 I read this a few years back-so I will need to do a quick review. I do remember really liking it!

19519 Just finished. Not bad-I gave it 3 stars. I have to admit that about half way in, I started skimming all of the parts about politics and war-I was only interested in the Bonobos! Vanessa was a brave woman! I'm fairly certain I would have been out of the Congo quickly-and never looked back-Bonobos or not. So, bravo to her!

19519 For decade read I choose "Our Town", a play. One of my absolute favorites! Easy to read and finish!
Our Town by Thornton Wilder

For horse book, how about children's lit?
King of the Wind King of the Wind  The Story of the Godolphin Arabian by Marguerite Henry

19519 Decade Read: All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque All Quiet on the Western Front
Why have I never read this before? Shameful!

For Ugly Cover (From My Own TBR List): Internal Combustion  The Story of a Marriage and a Murder in the Motor City by Joyce Maynard Internal Combustion: The Story of a Marriage and a Murder in the Motor City
The cover is an ugly car with BLOOD on it! And since I am originally from the Detroit area, my interest is piqued.

19519 I knew a tragedy was going to happen-but I did not see one of that magnitude coming! I agree with Lindsey that the MaryBeth (mother) character's reaction did not seem huge enough. I could not believe she was out and about shopping just 3 weeks later. I'm pretty sure I would be catatonic in some mental institution...

Will probably finish tonight...

19519 I like it so far...right now I can sense the tension building in the story, and I'm just waiting for "the other shoe to drop"...

19519 Thanks Lindsay! Like you, I already know there is no way I will give up my real books! I just want some different options. I am not even considering the color version of Nook, so it's between the 2 basic B&W versions. I've heard about the page number thing, that d/n really bother me. I'll keep your suggestions in mind. Is it easy to use? One reason that I am considering the Nook, is that "REAL PEOPLE" can help me if needed at my local BN. Can I hanlde the technology on my own? Keep the suggestions coming ladies...

19519 This is not a suggestion for the group, but rather, I NEED a suggestion. I'm ready to step into the world of technology-I'm going to buy an e-reader. Which should I get, KINDLE or NOOK? I would appreciate any/all comments. Thanks!
Feb 24, 2011 01:38PM

19519 Sounds good-I think I'll see if Blockbuser can get it for me...
Feb 22, 2011 02:12PM

19519 For decades "The woman in white" The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and

for "Alex Award" "The whistling season" The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig
Feb 13, 2011 03:57PM

19519 Yes, different author on the sequel. Her name escapes me at the moment...

Has anyone read anything else by De Maurier? I was looking on Amazon-and she has written quite a few other books! I wonder if any are worth a read?
