Sunday night, I started reading A Thousand Splendid Suns, by...I forget his name right now but it's the same guy who wrote The Kite Runner. Last night I finished it. It was UNBELIEVABLY good! It's been a very long time since I've read a book so good that I felt compelled to stay up all night reading the end. Everyone should check this book out!

I did listen to that book on audio - I'd sit in my car long after I'd gotten to my destination because I couldn't stop listening.

Khaled Hosseini. I've been meaning to read this one and I just checked our library's catalog and it is checked in (allegedly - I'll find out from sure when i get there) and it just so happens I'm between books at the moment so thanks for the reminder.

Another I've been meaning to read because I heard it was good is The story of Edgar Sawtelle - but of course all copies of that have been checked out.

But don't worry, sister! I put a hold on it!

Feeling any better? Any good hallucinations lately?

If A Thousand Splendid Suns has at least one picture on every page I'll buy and read it. If not, I'll just stick to reading Green Eggs and Ham every night.

The Kite Runner was amazing, so I'll be sure to pick A Thousand Splendid Suns...though lately reading is much like eating veggies to me. Something I have to do but really don't like...how sad is that!

Hope you're feeling better, so ignore my email and feelings of loss! Though I'm sure you're craving meat and mayo pancakes, lol!

Oh and...um...67 days and counting...give/take!

I haven't read it yet because I loved The Kite Runner so much. It's the book club pick for June, so I will read it.

Oh, and concerning "Confessions of Yakuza", it's definitely a "wait 10 days for." I hate that too. I always forget why I wanted to read the book in those 10 days.
