    What did you read in March 2007?

    Fiction:
    Possession: A Romance[/i] by A.S. Bryatt - While I skipped most of the poetry, still very enjoyable.

    Comics:
    Supermarket by Brian Wood (Author) and Kristian Donaldson (Illustrator) - Fun.

    Fables (Volume 7): Arabian Nights (and Days) by Bill Willingham - I was hoping for a bit more, but at least things are moving along.

    Non-Fiction:
    Where We Lived: Discovering the Places We Once Called Home, The American Home from 1790-1840 by Jack Larkin - Full of beautiful photographs and some useful information.

    Audio:
    The Whole World Over by Julia Glass - Not as good as Three Junes, but still excellent characters and relationships.

    I started reading Eragon. My son loved the book and recommended it to me.

    I can't really remember.
    Some books by Peter Dickinson:
    Eva
    The Weathermonger
    Emma Tupper's Diary

    The Weathermonger was the best of all those. Emma Tupper's Diary was good up till the part when they found real lake monsters.
    Eva was meh.
    Peter Dickinson is (was?) an environmentalist.

    Raven's Gate by Anthony Horowitz. It was good, but really I like the concept better than the book.

    Roswell High: The Watcher by Melinda Metz: I didn't like it and I'm glad I didn't buy the whole series when I was obsessed with the show.

    Sing the Four Quarters by Tanya Huff: I loved this and I'm very anxious to read the rest of the series.

    First Rider's Call by Kristen Britain: I'm a bit disappointed with this series and expected to like it a lot better than I have so far, but I'm still looking forward to the much-awaited third book.

    And I skimmed through a lot of romance books. I'm getting rid of a lot of books before I buy a house this coming fall/winter.

    I'm still trying to get through Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell. It's getting much better, but the book hasn't caught me so that I all I want to do is read it. It is a good read though.

I thought they all were wonderful. <u>Mrs. Dalloway</U> literally left me breathless. Her first novel was not as wonderful, but it sure was better than her husband's novel on the same shelf.

    I can't remember what I read in March; I was too panicked about finishing my coursework for grad school and surviving the teenagers in my classroom. We've had two weeks off since April 1 and I am reading a storm. It feels decadent.

    Flannery O'Connor - The Violent Bear It Away
    Mark Twain - The Innocents Abroad
    Thomas Bailey Aldrich - The Story of a Bad Boy
    Tim O'Brien - Going After Cacciato
    Sandra Cisneros - The House on Mango Street

    All of those were for class, too--the perils/pleasures of being a lit major.
