what I’m reading

Currently reading:

A People’s History of the United States, by Howard Zinn.  Loving this honest and startling look at American history… Columbus is not portrayed like the Columbus I learned about in school!  (11/20/11)

Bill Moyers Journal, The Conversation Continues, by Bill Moyers.  His interviews with many, many of the people he’s interviewed over the years. Excellent so far!

Cover of "The Book Thief"

Recently finished reading:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot.   It is a must read. It is creative non-fiction at its best.

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak.  Unbelievable book about a girl, the book thief, and her survival in Germany during the Holocaust.  A must read.

Room, by Emma Donoghue.  Another amazing, amazing read.  A young woman and her three-year old child, imprisoned by her kidnapper, is excellent.  It won the New York Times Best Book of the Year award.

A Stolen Life, by Jaycee Dugard.  True story of her captivity with heartless kidnapper.  Heartbreaking.  Quick read.

Wendy and the Lost Boys, by Julie Salaman.   Beautifully written story about the legendary Wendy Wasserstien.  American theatre lost so much when it lost Wendy.

House Rules, by Jodi Picoult.  This is the first time I’ve read one of this author’s books. I enjoyed it, for the most part.  Not a great book, but good.

Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony, by Jeff Ashton.  I am enjoying this book very much; it’s interesting to have the insider’s perspective of the ordeal.   (11/20/11)

      Hey my friend! I enjoyed his book…would have liked a few more juicy details though 🙂
      I appreciated what he said about the Anthony’s – he didn’t sugar coat their impact on the case, and he wasn’t disrespectful either. I felt he struck just the right chord. He was critical yet understanding of their plight.
      Anyway, I’m sure happy you’re in the groove now! You’re movin’ and grovin’, huh? YAY!!!
