    Oh, I'm so glad to hear someone else has read CA and other works by Mitchell, brdgt! (Well, I know someone else had to be reading his stuff, but I mean more local-to-me ;) I'm glad to hear that another of his reads also holds up to the impression CA made.

    artgeek - thanks for mentioning. Actually, I'd read Writing on the Body first, then Oranges second. I liked them both but agree that the styles were quite different....

    I just recently joined a bookclub -- although I was out of town for the first meeting. The book was Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. It was much larger than books I normally read (743 pages), and the subject matter was not my usual. But the book and characters were so wonderful and magical. I started reading and kept going, finishing it within a week. I was bummed once I finished it and wouldn't get to discuss it at the bookclub meeting -- even though I was told there isn't much discussion about the books anyways(!).

    Now I'm re-reading Soul Proprietor by Jane Pollak. It's a great quick-read with lots of life and business advice put in a human way.

    I finally finished Confessions of an Economic Hitman. It was a little depressing and naughty enraging so I kept putting it down. But the elections were looming so I finally finished it.

    It's very eye opening and I highly recommend it.

    Mosaic - you do realize that this book is the second in Gabaldon's Outlander series, right? I think there are six books. I'm trying to get through the first - Outlander. I have some friends that have read the whole series and LOVE them. In fact, my one girlfriend said that Dragonfly in Amber was her least favorite of the series - so look what you have to look forward to!

    Hi Michelle! YES(!) you can imagine how excited I was when I heard it's one of 6 books in series! Great to hear this was the least of your friend's favorite -- lots to look forward to. I told a friend about Dragonfly and she went out that day and bought it, but decided to read Outlander first. I hope to read it when the holiday craziness slows down. Wishful thinking....

    I've read Rubyfruit Jungle (for the same class I got Stone Butch Blues for) and I liked it, although I hated the class discussion about it. I have Winterson's books on my books to read list, along with Sarah Waters who I've been wanting to read since I saw the Tipping the Velvet mini-series. It's always nice to find out a writer is a nice person in real life (I've had a few run-ins with jerky authors online and once in person).

    I start to read a book which was ( Getting Started in Electronics by Forrest.M.Mims ) about the electronics. Actually I wanted to learn some thing about the electronics and thinking to manufacture some thing myself. but unfortunately I had to go out side that's why this book is still in the pending.
