I've really enjoyed reading the posts about favorite books, but haven't posted too much myself. I have a Kindle, and love going to the Amazon site to download free (or low cost) books. The recent read was "The Giver" by Lois Lowry. This is a book my kids read in middle school (and loved). It is a futuristic society and is really engaging. If you haven't read it, give it a try.
I read "Dragon Tattoo" and thought it was okay. The movie is good (although there is some pretty icky violence), and Daniel Craig is good as the main character!! Just my random thoughts!!
