    Just picked up 'Skinny Bitch' and have skimmed through it.
    I LOVE that they talk about the Alkaline vs Acid food debate and how poisonous chemical additives like Splenda and Equal are to your body.

    Yeah, I always think it's better to use sugar than to try and mess with S & E. Shortcuts with consequences.

    Started on Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse last night. It's so funny going back and seeing what passages I had underlined from 5 years ago.
    I'm finding new favorites like this one "I saw that Haller was a genius of suffering and that in the meaning of many sayings of Nietzsche he had created within himself with positive genius a boundless and frightful capacity for pain."

    I just read the Madonna book by her brother. If you are looking for anything new you will not find it here. Totally white washed. Madonna is a stingy hard ass bitch. Surprise!

    Sounds good. I just put in a request to my library and a bunch of people already have beat me to it. I'll wait my turn.

    Last night, I finished Dearest Anne. From a reader review:
    Finely translated into English by Dalya Bilu, "Dearest Anne: A Tale of Impossible Love" is the story of Rivi, many decades after a lesbian love affair with her teacher. The teacher, Michaela, has passed on, and Rivi returns to Israel to pay her condolences and mourn a relationship that could never be. Faced with the results of her decision in life, she turns to her notebooks addressed to Anne Frank to help her reflect.
    Amazon.com: Dearest Anne: A Tale of Impossible Love (Jewish Women Writers): Judith Katzir, Dalya Bilu: Books

    Right now I'm reading Fun Home.

    I just polished off Twilight and loved it. Purchased the paperback on Friday, brought it with me to a BBQ yesterday, finished it in bed last night. Starting New Moon tonight!!

    I'm glad that you will check out 'Skinny Bitch,' it's quite enlightening ariesallover. I hope you enjoy it.

    Would have been nice if he confirmed whether or not Sean Penn really did tie Madonna to a chair and left the house.

    Finished Fun Home by Alison Bechdel last night. Psychological nuanced. If comics can be literature, then this is it. She uncovers the story of her dad as a closeted, unhappy gay man and also tells her own coming out story in an artistic but disconnected family.

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist- Moshin Hamid

    I had read 'Moth Smoke' by the writer a couple of months back and I enjoyed it, so now I'm reading his newest.

    After this I have 'The Garden of Last Days' by Andre Dubus

    Started David Sedaris' Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim. It's not LOL funny like Me Talk Pretty. It's more wry, astute in characterizing his family, more psychological. I'm halfway through it. My dad went into liver failure a couple weeks ago, and the hospital/caretaking merry-go-round has me half nuts. Reading books and doing ChaCha is keeping me sane.

    I like David Sedaris but I find I laugh out loud more when I hear him read so I usually download his audiobooks-or even better-see him live.

    I'm reading The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. It's very very very good although some truly disturbing things happen. I guess the sequel Children of God is excellent too and makes The Sparrow seem even better as it ties things up.

    I'm surprised there haven't been movies made of these.

    Has anyone else read them?

    No, but I read her 'A Thread of Grace' and really liked it.
