Ooh this book starts off good! I think I need to pay closer attention to the dates. I'm starting to notice that they're from totally different points in time (depending on which character's perspective you're reading). I just can't put it down right now! So glad I snagged this book from Michele's donation pile! Always donate your books to me! Lol

Michelle Lemaster is on page 85 of 295 of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Funny so far. Pretty problematic, though, in terms of Earl (talk about negative stereotyping- I'm on a wait and see how/if this character is developed in the story. It was the same in the movie. Loved Earl, but....... ). Already seeing some small, but significant, difference between the film and the book, as one might expect.

Looking for another light summer read. Maeve Binchy always delivers a great story with great character. Looking forward to this one!

It's not really fair to say I'm on this page. I am reading the essays in the order that which they appeal to me.

Michelle Lemaster is on page 313 of 576 of My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales
There's really not enough room in an update to write about all the different sensations I'm getting off this book. I think I'm heading in a whole new exciting chapter of my reading life. I'm entering (much like the show "Who the Bleep Did I Marry?!!"), I think I'm entering the fantastical world of "What the Bleep Am I Reading?!!"
Standouts so far are Neil Gaiman (Think: Coraline) and Kelly Link. Twisted.

I'm realizing there is a lot I don't know about Jewish Culture as I read this book. I'm wondering what distinguishes Ladover Hasidim from other parts of Judaism? I've much to learn...

I picked up this book due to its unlikely comparison to Bless Me, Ultima. Not seeing much of a connection yet...

Reading is slow when you are simultaneously reading two books! It doesn't help when one has work, school and kids to boot!

David Sedaris is my new joy! I'm on my third book this week! I can't seem to get enough of the laugh-out loud moments he affords me.

So far a little hard to get into. Though there are sparkling moments I'm still waiting for it to "get good."

Pip's pish-posh attitude is leaving me disappointed in him. He treats poor Joe like a stranger practically!

This book feels decadent like a cashmere throw and a cup of cashew nut hot chocolate in front of a crackling fire...

In London now. Meeting a whole new host of characters. Still liking Pip though I'm sad about his shame for his humble beginnings.

Still reading about Artie's train wreck of a life. Provides a nice light modern balance to reading Great Expectations.

I've had my first creepy encounter with Mrs. Havishem (Play! Play!) and am about to embark on my 2nd. This is really a fun read!

I love Pip right off. His inner dialogues, in spirit and spunk are reminding me of Jason in Black Swan Green right now...
