Moderator's Note:

* In order to improve site performance, long threads that are draining our loading time will be closed and we are going to be periodically starting new threads. This should help pages load faster.
* Please remember that not everyone is on a fast connection, or has a large screen, and keep your picture sizes to 800 pixels or less in the largest dimension. This will also help with page load speed.
* Please refrain from posting the same images as contained in the archived threads (eg in the old closed thread).
* Please remember to stay on topic... All off topic discussion will be removed.
* Please do not power post eg make empty posts with no Info/questions/Images - Empty posts cause threads to grow rapidly and is a nuisance to those who subscribe to many threads. Please take any private conversations to PMs or Profile Comments.

I enjoyed the book a lot actually, and I'm looking forward to the movie as well.

Thank goodness for the winter break. I'm in the process of finishing five books right now:

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Take Your Eye Off the Ball by Pat Kirwan

Sisterhood Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild by Deborah Siegel

Staying Alive: The 1970s and the Last Days of the Working Class by Jefferson Cowie

Seventies: The Sights, Sounds, and Ideas of a Brilliant Decade by Howard Sounes


With regard to the last two titles, these tie into my field of study. Or, I should say, will make up part of the research I'm conducting for my Master's thesis.

Berlinerpoplene / Berlin Poplars by Anne B. Ragde
It's about three borthers who see each other for the first time in ages when their Mother falls into a coma. It's good, but for some reason I find it slow to read.
