It's been months -- sorry! -- but I'm finally back! I was having trouble logging in for a LONG time. It seems the problem is finally solved.

So what has everyone been reading?

I just finished We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver. Just seemed like an appropriate thing to read in wake of the Newtown shootings. Cry

Also read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston, for a women's commission discussion group here at work.

Not sure what is going to be next up.

Good to be back!

I read, and own, the 2006 Harper Perennial Modern Classics edition of Their Eyes Were Watching God, with the PS section at the end with additional material. Is this the edition you read?  It's an amazing book, and a real classic cited by many other writers.

I haven't read We Need to Talk About Kevin, but I've been checking for it at the library.

Welcome back!

 It's good to see you back. It seems that I still have to log twice each time. Yesterday I gave up on The Territory by Tricia Fields after about 40 pages. I've got quite a stack of books and this one wasn't holding my attention. I've got Temple of a Thousand Faces by John Shors going on my kobo and The Cream Puff Murder on my kindle but while I'm waiting to pick up River's End by Melody Carlson at the library, I'd better read What Happened to my Sister by Elizabeth Flock. I think it's due back to the library soon.

Hi Bev, Roberta, Ruth and Kathie!!!!

It has been cumbersome to deal with this site, lately.

I loved Their Eyes Were Watching God when I read it a gazillion years ago. I should probably plan on reading something else of Zora Neale Hurston's.
