we're discussing this one at the end of the month, but i DARE YOU not to read it in a week. it's really that great.

in my hands is a true story of a polish woman who is studying to become a nurse when world war 2 begins. she tells her story of saving her jewish friends, and many others, from the nazi's. when i finished this book i was in awe of what an amazing woman irene is. i hope you pick up your copy asap. it will inspire you to amazing heights. i look forward to discussing it with you oct. 30th!

I would hate to live there as well. I say as I am watching my friend's son. Crazy! Can't wait to read the book, though I am a little scared, because I always cry when I read anything about WWII. But I am going to try nonetheless. Thanks for doing this book club!

The book sounds good; the newspaper story sounds ridiculous!

I will mimic my grandmother and say, "What on earth is this world coming to?!"
