I am now reading "Nights of Rain and Stars" by Maeve Binchy

Oh, that is such a good book!

My friend just gave me "Well-Schooled In Murder" by Elizabeth George, I'm going to start reading it this weekend.

"A Wild Sheep Chase" by Haruki Murakami.  It's better the second time.

Well the author Peter Haining talks about the story behind who Sweeney Todd was if he had existed. He talks about the stories...myths..some facts based on his research. Takes a look at the 150 years of history of the Sweeney Todd story and just kind of gives his views and opinions on what his research showed him. I picked up the book because of Johnny Depp's part in the movie Sweeney Todd back in Dec 2007. So from curiousness stand point..i decided to pick it up. I think it's going to be pretty fastinating anyway. :)

I found my copy at a bookstore called Barnes and Nobel.

A book called "Middlesex" by somebody- Stephanides.  It's about a hermaphrodite that comes from a Greek immigrant family.  Promises to be very interesting.

It's by Jeffrey Eugenides, and it's a masterpiece.

Only two people mentioned U2-A Diary. :( Is that because everyone else has already read it? I'll tell myself that's why.

Already read it.  I loved it - found out a lot of new things about the band. Love the pictures too!!!

Thanks for writing about my favorite obsession - 4 talented men from Dublin, Ireland,

'The Real Story Of The Demon Barber of Fleet Street: Sweeney Todd' by Peter Haining( will be a Medium Length. Read)

U2 Diary Matt McGee..( will be a long length read)

'Public Enemies' by Bryan Burrough(will be a long length read)

 & 'The Host' by Stephenie Meyer. will be a VERY long length read)

But ALL of these books are going to be a Fantastic read! :)
