2 down, way more to go

I recently finished women food and god by geneen roth. I'm not one that usually reads "self-help" books, but I've struggled with my weight most of life and as I am working on getting it under control, again, I though maybe trying to take care of some of the "underlying causes" might be a good thing. I've heard Oprah mention this book a few times, and it made a couple good points. I wouldn't say its a must-read, but for anyone wanting to change how they think about food, it may do some good.
I'm am almost finished with "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. I usually wait to see the movie after I've read the book, but my little sister dragged me to the theater because she had to see it and didnt want to go alone. Now I've finally gotten around to reading it and as usual, the book is better than the movie. I am quite enjoying it. When it comes to civil rights, I usually like reading more historical books rather than fiction about that era, but this is a page turner for me.
