Waiting: The True Confessions of a Waitress by Debra Ginsberg.


Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman. I am almost finished and I don't think that I like it very much. The story is about a woman who has no power over her actions because of a man, despite the pain they cause her family.


I'm reading Love in the Time of Cholera [by Gabriel Garcia Marquez], as it has been on my list of unread classics for years. I hope to finish it some time this year.


Diet for a New America by John Robbins; Stupid White Men by Michael Moore; The Art of Getting Up (a history of graffiti) by Stephen Powers.

Amy A.:

Memoir from Antproof Case [by Mark Helprin].


Currently I've been reading the warning labels and directions on the cans of spray wall texture and patching plaster ... What I want to be reading is Tom Spanbauer's new book, Now is the Hour. If you don't know this [Idaho-raised] author, then pick up The Man Who Fell in Love With the Moon and then move on to his other works. He's one of my favorites! My son, Nick, is about Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs [by Giles Andreae] these days.


Just got a library copy of Between the Bridge and the River by Craig Ferguson (yeah, that Scottish guy from The Late Show). This is not normally the kind of book I would pick up, but it's getting good reviews so I'm giving it a try.
