I am re-reading "Prodigal Summer" by Barbara Kingsolver, and am also reading "We Need To Talk About Kevin" by Lionel Shriver (fabulous book BTW). Awaiting me are "Taft" by Ann Patchett, several Jodi Picoult books, and several Anne Shreve books.

Finished Black Order by James Rollins, author of Map of Bones. Both books are fabulous. If you like intrigue, mystery, history and suspense, I highly recommend these two books.

Currently reading The Next Accident by Lisa Gardner.

I'm still plugging along in the series of "China Bayles" mysteries by Susan Whittig Albert. They're all centered around Texas and lead me to believe I can make a SERIOUS effort at greenthumbedness. Not Happening!! Love the books, though

I just finished the Glass Castle and thought it was wonderful. A great story of how strength of character leads to success.

Wendy,

I also loved Three Cups of Tea!

It give credence that to the idea that one person can make a difference.

The Lance and the Shield by Robert M. Utley. Life of Sitting Bull. Tragic and very well-documented. Lots of local interest. I can sit in my living room and am right where it happened, so to speak.

I recently finished this:

Dan Koeppel. BANANA: THE FATE OF THE FRUIT THAT CHANGED THE WORLD (2007).

It's not a bad read, but I wish it had been written by Mark Kurlansky - he has a knack for those kinds of books:

Kurlansky. COD: A BIOGRAPHY OF THE FISH THAT CHANGED THE WORLD (1998).
Kurlansky. SALT: A WORLD HISTORY (2003).


Now this was a good read:

Maureen Ogle. AMBITIOUS BREW: THE STORY OF AMERICAN BEER (2007).
