a survey

After wanting to read it for a while now, I have finally finished ***Corelli’s Mandolin|http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/067976397X/qid=1091057930/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-1093109-7623326?v=glance&s=books***, by Louis De Berniernes. I found it to be a very touching story with just the right amount of historical context to be interesting. Beware, however, it caused me to shed many tears!

Having just finished my latest book, ***The Blue Journal|http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0399148027/qid=1091056631/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/102-1093109-7623326?v=glance&s=books***, I have found myself without a new read. Normally, I’d just go to the Library and walk around until some title catches my eye.

I thought that today I’d see what you, our fine readers, might recommend to me. Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite read, or the most recent thing you read. That way I can go to the library with purpose. And maybe I’ll read somthing that I might not have otherwise 🙂

Oh, and I think that I would relegate my latest read to a list of beach books. It was somewhat enjoyable, but mostly I felt gypped by the ending. It was just a good, mindless, easy read.

    Ah, the plethora of possibilities, as I librarian, I must weigh in.

    1. Pride and Prescience by Carrie Bebris
    2. Jane Austen in Bocca by Paula Marantz Cohen

    Adult Non-fiction:
    1. Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts
    2. The Fabulous Girl’s Guide to Grace Under Pressure by Kim Izzo and Ceri Marsh

    Something from the YA section:
    1. Mate and Dates and Inflatable Bras by Cathy Hopkins
    2. The rest of the Mates and Dates series

  2. Bethany

    I just finished “The Nanny Diaries” and it was fabulous. You might have read it already. It’s light, and funny, but hits close to home having been a nanny and housecleaner for wealthy types myself.
