    Another Insane Devotion by Peter Trachtenberg - fiction, well written and has a kitty pivotal character!

    Some of the best books I've read in the last few years are Stieg Larsson's three books - check them out! I also liked Maeve Binchy's "Italian Teacher" (not sure the title is quite correct)

    I read "The Shell Seekers" - and I watch the PBS series "Doc Martin" which takes place in Cornwall. Randi, I've read a couple of Maeve Binchy's books and really liked them! I read "The Hiding Place" in high school.

    When I went to the bookstore to pick up this quality measurement book, they had a table with a sign: Books Everyone Should Read. There were classics on it - The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, Animal Farm, and the diary of Anne Frank. There were also a couple I have not read - "Night" by Elie Wiesel and Khaled Hossaini's (sp?) "One Thousand Splendid Suns"- I think that's the title. My sister-in-law teaches middle school language arts and "Night" is one of the books she has taught. I re-read The Great Gatsby when the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio came out. Didn't get it in high school, didn't get it in college and I still don't completely get it. Will try to get to the library soon. During summer (through September) the library is open Sundays from 11 AM until 3:30 PM- wish they would do it all year round!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I am back and forth reading "Bleating Hearts: The Hidden World of Animal Suffering" and also "A Street Cat Named Bob". When Bleating Hearts brings me to tears I read some of Bob to cheer me up.

    Just finished "Perfect" by Don Larsen. His account of the Perfect Game he pitched in the 1956 World Series. I saw that game on TV, and have read another book about it. This was really interesting - he went inning by inning and he's finally realizing what is going on - only no one will talk to him about it.

    Now I'm reading another sports book - about the history of the NHL.
