Well I'm well into the 2WW and this is a particularly hard one. I love to read so - do you have any book suggestions for me?

Thanks!

If just in general -

I love anything by Nicholas Sparks, have read all of his and they are quick good reads.

I loved Memoirs of a Geisha, The Other Boleyn, Secret Life of Bees, The Memory Keepers Daughter.

I'm reading "Room" right now for my book club and it's disturbing, but good.

I've read all of those but The Other Boleyn. I started it, but couldn't get into it. All of them were decent books.

My all time favorites are The Red Tent and The Art of Racing in the Rain. I don't know one person who has read those and didn't like them.

OOOh Celry! The Red Tent was such an excellent book!

You may like Queenmaker by India Edgehill if you liked The Red Tent.

Have any of you heard of Trade Books for Free, Book Swap, Trade Audiobooks » PaperBack Swap I've been trading books with other members for about 6 years now.

I read the book Escape by Carolyn Jessup not too long ago. It was really good. Its a true story about a woman who escapes from one of those polygamist sects and it is a true story.

I also used to like all the Mary Higgins Clark mystery type books.

And I LOVED Memoirs of a Geisha too!
