One Book Down, A Million To Go

So I finished the book "The Notebook" last night. It was ruined for me. I should've read the book before I saw the movie a million times. All I did when I was reading it, was comparing the two. I did not cry while reading the book, yet I cry every time I watch the movie. Go figure.

This line keeps popping up in my head though from the book................

Poetry, she thought, wasn't written to be analyzed; it was meant to inspire without reason, to touch without understanding.

Wow, so it is OK to not fully understand poetry.....every poem I've ever read I've analyzed over and over. Thank you Allie for enlightening me.

Now I pick up another book to read. This one is called "A Million Little Pieces". Some of you may have heard of it. The big controversy book on Oprah.......James Frey got ridiculed on stage because not all of it was true, some of it was embellished. Hello people! This book is about a person suffering from addiction. I always thought it was cruel what Oprah did to him. He is probably now sitting under a bridge with a bottle of whiskey. Thank you Oprah.

Anyway, that's my reading update for now!

What are some of your favorite books? I am always curious as to what others are out there reading.

I very much agree. Oprah was so over the top! The book was great. I was okay with a little embellishment, it was a great read. I felt really sorry for the guy and it knocked Oprah down a notch in my book.

I'm not a huge reader, but anything from nicholas sparks, I loved...LOVED "P.S. I love you".

I just finished "all I really needed to know I learned in kindergarten". Cute essays about life.

Memoirs of a geisha was really good too, luckily I read the book first!

A million little pieces has been sitting on my shelf for about 6 months, I should pick it up, dust it off and read it. Oprah was wrong. Screw the book club bitch.

and that's all I have to say about that....

I'm in the middle of 2 right now.
The Innocent Man by John Grisham and
The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer.

I really like Nicholas Sparks too.

Oh I can't read two books at once....I get confused easily. I have to start a book and read it from front to back before i can pick up another one.
