    Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel. I don't want to be disrespectful to people suffering from severe depression, but she does sound very whiny and overdramatic.

    Just finished 'Lone Survivor'

    Amazon.com: Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10: Marcus Luttrell, Patrick Robinson: Books

    It was recommended to me by the owner of a car wash center, so I bought it. It's the true story of the sole survivor of a 4 man Navy SEAL team in Afghanistan, 2005, as told by the survivor himself. You may have heard about it, and how he survived.

    Aside from the annoying political jibes, it's a pretty intense story of survival. In fact I'd rank it as one of the greatest tales of human survival against tremendous odds ever, I think an ordinary person would have given up in such hellish circumstances, and by that I mean the will to live.

    I guess it took some measure of courage to admit how his team ended up in the predicament in the first place. He was the sole deciding factor in what to do with some shepherds that happened to come across their hide site. Should they kill them and save their hiding spot? Or would they release them despite the overwhelming chance that they would be compromised?

    Their situation was not unlike what happened to an Army Green Beret team during desert storm, 1991, where their recon position in Iraq was accidentally discovered by some kids.

    Highly recommended, some painful moments as he describes his own brothers in arms gunned down, and of his ultimate will to live, and those unlikely heroes who helped him survive.

    Finally finished Pillars of the Earth. Recommended, even if it is on The Oprah's book club list.

    Moving on to The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir.

    I read:

    A Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Klepas (romance novels aren't usually my thing but this was cute) and Undead and Unreturnable. I am going through that series book by book. And really really dig it.
