    I really need to read Little Bee. Friends keep recommending it. And, I really loved The History of Love and didn’t realize she had a new book out!

    One of my favorite books this year was Mennonite in a Little Black Dress.

    I do take a look at the lists, but I rely more on recommendations from friends. I think you should try “Let the Great World Spin” for a powerful *powerful* story. For fun, try something by Michael Malone – I am reading “Foolscap”. For an edgy memoir, my favorite is Mary Karr’s “Lit.”
