Yep, I've read this one too, but I'll have another go-round with it.

I've heard a lot about this one. I'm going to see if I can get my hands on it.

Awesome choice! I read it over Christmas Break and loved it. I could hardly put it down. Very empowering.

I am so glad you are enabling my bad habit! I devour books, but since having a baby, I decided that I needed to stop so I could be a good mother. I have missed my oldest and truest friends dearly. Your blogger book club has been fantastic! I can now read and feel like I have a reason to be reading, and it isn't for my own selfish enjoyment. Thank you.

I just had this recommended to me! I will have to check it out.

Fiauna said...

It's all checked out and on hold at my library (so it must be good). I'm just going to have to take a trip to Barnes and Noble.

I'll be headin' over to B&N to pick this up today! I'm very excited!

But not so much excited about the fact that my word verification thingie is "hooker"...what? I most certainly am not!
