Thought I'd resurrect this for the summer reading season...
Currently, I'm finishing off "The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse" by Louise Erdich. A really good but quirky book about a woman posing as a Catholic priest living in Indian reservations in the Dakota's in the late 1800's investigating a miracle. Sounds weird but its well told and written.
Also just read "The Nanny's Diaries". It was supposed to be funny, but I just couldn't get past reading about the lives of the ultra-rich and how empty, shallow, and pathetic their lives were. Others think it's hilarious. I thought it was sad.
Next on the stack is the Stephen King/Peter Straub "Black House", Elmore Leonard's "Out of Sight", and "A Lesson Before Dying" by Ernest Gaines.
Also read "Ender's Game" with my son as a end of the year school assignment. We had to read the book, write journals of our thoughts through the book, and present it to his class. It was pretty fun and I found out my son has great thoughts and writes well if he wants to.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
