Joanna, I read The Help for bookclub this winter.  WONDERFUL book!!

Socal, I love the Spenser series.  Quick, easy entertaining reads and so sad the author passed away as I always pick those books off the shelf as they are always good!  Love both Spenser and HAWK!

I just started reading again.  Am currently reading The Apprentice by Tess Garritsen, a Rizzoli & Isles (new TV series) book.

I am taking a one book break from my non-stop political reading and am just starting "The Help." Lee,  I've heard wonderful things about it, and read the first chapter on Amazon.

I'm also reading "Help".  Is a good read. 

If you haven't read  "The Memory Keeper" you might want to try that one also.  I will say again, loved "Sarah's Key".  Think I read somewhere that it is to be made into a movie.

Started and finished reading "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein this week while off work recuperating.  Made me cry like a baby at the end, but great storytelling from the viewpoint of a dog.  I need more dog wisdom!

While in Florida, I visited the Marjorie Rawlings State Park. I was familiar with The Yearling (the movie) but had never read any of her books. After seeing her home place- hearing her history, I became interested in her as an author. I got from the library The Cross Creek Cookery (some narrative but mostly recipes) and Cross Creek. Finding it very interesting.

I am reading Decision Points. It is absolutely fascinating.  No matter what side of the political fence you sit on, it is an incredible behind- the - scenes history lesson.
And the way he describes how he met and fell in love with Laura made me cry.

I finished Palm Trees on the Hudson a couple of weeks ago. It is a true story about a man who was a decorator in Manhattan and met Judy Garland. It is the Prequel to the book Taking Woodstock, which was made into a movie.
