I just finished She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb a few days ago. The second time I've read it - the first time was about 8 years ago. I really loved this book!! I think I have to add it to my list of all time faves.
I am now working on Roots by Alex Haley. Always wanted to read it but I think it was out of print for a long time. It's back now because it's the 30th anniversary of the TV miniseries. The book is hefty at 899 pages, but it's very very good so far and hard to put down. I'm a little over 100 pages into it already.

I'm so glad to know I wasn't the only one who didn't care for The Kite Runner. I only got about halfway through it, before putting it down and starting another book.
I keep thinking I'll check out The Lovely Bones, but never do. It really seems like one of those books that you either just love or hate.
I've had She's Come Undone, sitting here for a couple years now, guess I should give it a try.
I started Roots when I was teaching. I got about 100 pages in, and was really enjoying it, but just didn't have the time for it.
I just checked out
The River King -- Alice Hoffman
Baby Proof -- Emily Griffin
If You Lived Here -- Dana Sachs
The Ghost Orchid -- Carol Goodman
I started in on If You Lived Here last night and think I will really enjoy it. The author is from NC, and the story is set in Wilmington, NC. I'm familiar with a lot of the landmarks she's mentioned so far, and I always appreciate that in a book. One of the reasons I enjoy Nick Sparks so much.
Right now, I'm reading The Last Days of Dogtown, by Anita Diament. It's nowhere near as good as The Red Tent, but it's not horrible, either. It's very character-heavy and not so big on action. It was slow to get started, too. But now I'm very into it and interested in seeing where everyone ends up.
I am reading THE LONG WALK by Stephen King, just put that one aside (which I NEVER do) to read THE ROAD (our bookclub selection) since it just came in and can't be renewed. I got the large print edition, it is 176 pages and I read 100 yesterday, so I hope to finish today, return it and get back to my first book.
