A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

It's taking me forever to get through it... my hairdresser even commented the other day that it's the same book I was reading last time (over 6 weeks ago...) but I'm loving it ... I'm a ridiculously slow reader

I think I've picked up this book at least five times with the intention of buying it. I've always put it down.

You've sold me.


Right now: Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell (if you haven't seen, there's a little book club for this starting in the "sound like a geek" thread in good reading) and The Places that Scare You- A Guide to Fearlessness, Pema Chodron. I've been needing that book for a few years now.

Finished Emma's War, Deborah Scroggins. It's a decent primer on Sudanese Civil War.
