Feeling Bookish

Chatty reminded me that I have books to pass on. Let me know if you want them.

The Kite Runner (good, I was okay with the ending but it bothers some people)
The Dogs of Babel (probably not the best idea to read a book about a spouse dying alone with only the dog as a witness)
Cocktails for Three (girlie book)

I finished Nickle and Dimed but I am passing it on to my mom and then anyone who is a republican or in danger of becoming one.

I am three quarters of the way through Middlesex and loving it. That one is from a friend's personal library so it won't be up for grabs. But you should find a copy of your own. A really excellent book.
