The first book I read was Mostly Harmless by Douglas Adams, the last (or so I thought) in the 5 book series that starts with The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Quite honestly, I was very dissapointed in this last installment. I felt that it let many story lines go without any real conclusion and ended abruptly. I am very glad to have found out that Eoin Colfer has written a sixth book and I plan on reading it before years end. I hope that it at least touches on some of the things that were dropped in the last book.
The second book I read was Julie and Julia by Julie Powell. I am sure you have all heard of this book. It was recommended to me by my writer's group and I am very glad that I read it. The movie is a good translation but I felt the book was much more edgy and true to life. I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to anyone.
Hopefully I'll soon be posting about more books. Happy Reading!
