  1. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khalid Housseini
    I've heard a lot of good things about this one...hope to read it one day...so many books so little time...sigh.

  2. I read both Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines (John Green) in October. I liked Katherines better than Alaska (but I think I might be in the minority on that).

  3. Frankenstein--nice choice for October.
    I had my first official session with my personal trainer the other day. Since then, with my quad muscles shredded, I've been walking like Frankenstein.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
