    Reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is very good thus far.

    I love THE SHACK! Even though I cried through the whole book. It's a book I'll read again some day.

    discloser re: the shack

    it is a book based on a man's weekend experience with GOD, Jesus and Holy Sprit.
    it does not preach
    it does try to convert

    it is a feel good story of inspiration and forgiveness no matter what your faith

    i preferred the audio version to the written word.

    I am also reading The Help. So far, I really like it, but I am so appalled at the treatment of blacks in Mississippi during that time. I grew up in the South during this period, and although I recall a lot of segregation issues, none of it compares with the abusive and degrading treatment shown in this book. Ok, I'm getting off topic. I also read Water for Elephants this summer, which I loved and Steven Tyler's Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? This is definitely not for the faint of heart - Very graphic. It's a miracle that any of them lived through all of that. Hey San Nic, I see that you have a new book coming out. Is it going to tell us what happened to Luz and the gang?? Also, when do you think it will be out?

    I've read a number of Khoury books over the last couple years, The sign and The Sanctuary were decent. Through sheer boredom, I've been polishing off a bunch of the Clive Cussler stuff lately too. Just a word of warning, avoid the Matthew Reilly books. Most of them are barely edited rough drafts and his propensity for absurd cliffhangers and resurrections will probably have you rolling your eyes and either laughing or swearing, depending on your own personal tendencies.
