DonnaMaria, I just finished "I hate my neck" and I really enjoyed it! I literally laughed out loud throughout much of it (the purse chapter was hilarious!!). I forgot how much I enjoy Nora Ephron...thanks for the recommendation!

I kept thinking of Heartburn while I was reading it and her marriage to Carl Bernstein, lol

Glad you liked it! It really was a great read!

The purse chapter and the chapter about plastic surgery were my favorites! Any time I see a woman in a turtleneck I think of her! My turtleneck years are fast approaching!

The Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts

An old vampire Lilith is declaring war in ancient Geall. Morrigan, an old goddess, has charged Hoyt with finding the chosen circle of six; a sorcerer, a shape shifter, a warrior, scholar, witch, and the lost one. They will form an army and lead them against the vampires.

Hoyt travels to modern day to find some of the circle, then to Ireland where some find him. Some training and then back in time to Geall where he rides Dragons like a war horse.

Great books so far. Would make an awesome movie.

I guess I'm still technically reading "A Fighter's Mind" since I haven't finished it, but I haven't opened it up in a few weeks. That's cool, though: i'll have plenty of time to read it during my trip to & from Belize next week!

I have been reading "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis for over 6 months now. It's taking so long because I have to keep going back and rereading certain chapters because there is so much to grasp!

I've been reading Pawprints of History! I don't remember who the writer is. I find the effect Dogs have had on history to be fasinating! Some of them have actually had a huge impact on human events. For example the Mew Foundland that saved Neapolean from drowning to the dog that indirectly cuased a war! According to ledgend they also had a big impact on the life and work of Saint Packtric!
