Books, books, books...

So, this has been quite a couple of weeks reading books for me... my poor family and house. I blame Harry Potter for some of it, but mostly it is the fault of some good friends who keep giving me good things to read. Case in point: the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. A teen romance about the "new girl" in school falling for this HOT vampire. Yeah. I NEVER would have picked it up from the bookstore... romance?... teen?... VAMPIRES????... but I got obsessed and read the first two installments in 2 days. Luckily, the third came out Tuesday and my lovely friend, Jenny, and I were at Costco at opening time to get our copies of Eclipse. Last night, we had our regularly scheduled book club and reviewed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and had great food and discussion (sans children of course). Now, it's Corelli's Mandolin again for this month and then... any suggestions?
