    The other one was getting so big so I thought I would start a new one... I hope no one minds.

    Same as the old thread just fewer posts.

    Thanks for getting the new thread started Cindy, the other one was getting pretty big!!

    I'm reading The Doctor's Wife, still not in love with it, but it's interesting, and I'm eager to see how it plays out.

    Getting ready to start Mercy by Jodi Picoult. I'm really digging her books right now, so I'm trying to read as many as I can. After that I've got a couple by Marian Keyes to read.

    I finished listening to Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan on my way home today.

    I enjoyed it, though it took me a while to finish because of listening to it. It was about a young girl from a wealthy family in Mexico. When tragedy strikes, she and her mother leave Mexico to come to the United States to work.

    Kelly, this is a book for the younger set, no? It's on our reading list for Kevin's book club (which, btw, although it has gone very well, is probably going to go on hiatus for a while, as none of the other parents seem willing to host the discussions, and with the new baby coming . . . )

    Yes, it is! It was an audio book I borrowed from my school's library (middle school so 6-8 grade.) One of her books, Becoming Naomi Leon, was one of our 5th grade Battle of the Books selections, when I coached the team at my other school. My DD, in 5th grade, also read it this year (she got sucked into it while listening to it on our way home from school, but was missing parts in the 20 or so minutes before I picked her up. so she checked it out at her school.) I'd say anywhere from about 4th grade up would be a good age range for it. I believe it is considered to be YA.

    Sorry to hear none of the other parents are willing to take on the book club for a bit, while your family adjusts to the new addition, it's such a great idea, and something that would be fairly easy to host.
