    I'm sure that they'd be classed by most as 'girlie fluff' but my daughter talked me into reading them and I really enjoyed them (at least the first two anyway) Good escapist fantasy that caught the attention of the post Harry Potter generation - looking forward to the film! enjoy!

    That's a good plan of action. My friend owns the books and I borrowed them from her. We didn't find out about them until Eclipse was nearing release, and so read all three books in succession, then had to wait for Breaking Dawn for an excruciatingly long time. Or so it seemed to me.

    Wow, people are saying the movie sucked already? It just came out yesterday I know pre-sale tickets were sold out all over the country, however. I don't go by reviews. I go and watch and decide for myself. Plenty of people despised the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter films, too, simply because they didn't have all of the information the books contained, and because not everything was followed to a T. I heard the same about Eragon, as well. Having read LotR and the Potter series, I agree key elements were missing in the films, however, I understand that not everything can be fit in and editing must be done...

    Frauen, German Women Recall the Third Reich

    It's for a class, it is however proving to be quite fascinating.

    Anyone else out there think Twilight is rather poorly written? I read the first one as a summer fluff book, and it was good as that: fluff. The dialogue made me cringe quite a bit while reading it. I guess I would never recommend it as great lit. I didn't see the potential.

    I just finished reading John Adams, by David McCullough. I am now reading Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout. The second book was chosen for a book club. We meet to discuss the book on December 2.

    Friedman's Hot, Flat and Crowded, a good thought on how the US has squandered opportunities for stepping up in good ways.

    The Black Death which is a fictionalized account by a historian, gets into the psychology/spirituality of the time which made watching 40-80% of your neighbors die a horrible death even worse (if that can be imagined).

    Outliers which at least has the wisdom to point out that you get good at math by working at it, not just through inborn ability--we're talking regular math, not PHDs...

    The Twilight series was a nice fluff read, no deep "Where are the adults when yu need them" themes like Harry Potter. One more reference to Alice going shopping and I was ready to never find out what happened.

    The next book that I'm planing to read is:

    The Plague--by Albert Camus.

    I would appreciate book suggestions.
