    Up and Down. History of servants in the UK. Pretty fascinating stuff, actually.

    I just got my copy of 'Push' by Sapphire, the book that inspired the movie 'Precious', in the mail. Once you get over the horrible language it isnt that bad. Yes, theres a lot of cursing but also the main character isnt very educated so her writing it in 'broken English and limited vocabulary', as an Amazon reviewer said, might get on ones nerves at the beginning.

    Well, its better read I guess. At the end of this article theres an excerpt from the book. Check that out if youre interested. Then you combine that with the graphic descriptions of what her parents put her through, that could also put one off, but myself, I wanted to know how she got out of there. Ive only read the first chapter but I hope to finish it sometime soon. And its a relatively short book, only about 170 pages with some added poetry that may have been written by Precious, Im not sure.

    I just finished 'Created: The Destroyer' by Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir and am now about to attempt to finish 'New Moon' by Stephenie Meyer.

    Book 2 of the Dexter series. I cant put it down. Read the first book in like 4 days, and I'm almost done with #2. I like that I have faces to put with most the characters, it seems more real. I almost feel like Dexter/Michael C. Hall is just telling me a story.

    You know, I liked book one but the ending really let me down. I feel it left a real sore spot in me and that may be why I have yet to touch the second. You say it only gets better?

    I just finished Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. It was really good! Now I'm reading The Surgeon by Tess Gerritson. Really intriguing!

    I just picked up Portal by Imogen Rose. Its supposed to be something like Twilight and The Time Travelers Wife. Ive heard nothing but rave reviews and it was cheap so I snatched it up.

    Just got two history books in the mail: London in the 20th Century and The east End 1888 (year of Jack the Ripper, etc.) Can't decide which one to dip into first.
