I am still just so happy that I have fallen in love with reading.  Since I started these in April, this is the most books I've read than in the last ten years of my life combined.  It makes me happy!

I would highly recommend The Help.  I can wait to also see the movie that comes out next month.

I just started How to Talk to a Widower and I can tell I am going to love Jonathan Tropper's writing.  I am literally on page nine and he is fabulous -
It's supposed to be charming having rabbits in your lawn, a selling point, incontrovertible proof that you've made it out of the city and into the rarefied country air of suburban Westchester. We may be driving enough minivans and SUVs to singlehandedly melt the polar ice caps, may be retrofitting our stately eighty-year-old homes with enough fiber optic cable to garrote the planet, may be growing Home Depots, Wal-Marts, Stop & Shops, and strip malls like tumors on every available grassland, but we've got these rabbits, scurrying back and forth across the lawn like a goddamn Disney movie, so case closed.  We are one with nature.
Love it.

Reading anything good lately?
