    I just finished Maximum Ride by James Patterson. I'll start a new book tonight, either Theif of Souls by Ann Benson or Dragon's Lair by Sharon Kay Penman. Decisions, decisions...

    I'm reading Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris. He is absolutely hilarious...my friend can't read any book by him in public because she laughs out loud and gets strange looks

    I've been reading through Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books again so I'm up to speed and can read the newest one that just came out. I'm also currently reading through the Kate White books since her new one comes out next month. I love my mysteries!

    Thank you for reminding me that I've been wanting to read some books by David Sedaris... I've heard sooo many good things about him.

    I just did a huge trip to the library and here are the books i got (i've bolded the ones i've read so far):

    1. Angry housewives Eating Bonbons
    2. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
    3. Confessions of a shopaholic
    4. Nine parts of desire (about muslim women)
    5. Pledged: The secret life of sororities
    6. Expecting Adam by Martha Becket
    7. The House on Mango St. by Sandra Cisneros
    8. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
    9. The Poisonwood bible
    10. In the name of Salome by Julia Alvarez
    11. Under the Banner of Heaven (about mormon fundamentalism)

    I found Pledged the most interesting for its analysis of American culture (particularly the status-conscious aspects of the South), House on Mango St. i liked b/c i really enjoy S. Cisneros' writing style (latino immigrant culture), 9 Parts of Desire was an interesting look at Muslim women's lives in the middle east, but it is a bit dated now (was published 10 years ago) and is a bit too ethnocentric towards the West in its analysis/critique. Confessions of a Shopaholic was a light, entertaining read but nothing of substance. The Red Tent was alright, it reminded me of The Mists of Avalon.
