  1. Thanks for the link up!

    I loved THE HELP. It’s being made into a movie, so I can’t wait to see that. I haven’t read THE LACUNA, but I’ll have to check that out.

    Have a peaceful and joyous holiday season!

    Thanks for the gift of The Help – I have enjoyed sharing it with others as well! It really took a “hold” on me as I have continued to remember parts of the story and even imagine other scenes with the characters. Love you

  3. Let’s see—I’ve been a reading slacker this year, but…
    1) Newer titles:
    Strength in What Remains – Tracy Kidder
    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – Stieg Larrson (yep, followed the tide…)
    2) Also loved discovering anew (for me!):
    A Walk in the Woods – Bill Bryson
    Santiago’s Children – Steve Reifenberg (now at ND’s Kellogg Cntr… every idealist do-good-aspiring college student/grad should read!)
