Reading Lately

The book club that I am a part of is so much fun.  I love having an evening with friends and talking books and having a light snack along with it. We discussed “The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie“(ad link).  I will admit, I didn’t read the entire book.  In fact, I stopped reading it around page 120.  I was bored.  The language was not appealing to me.  The main character is an 11 year old girl that did not act her age or gender.  Then I was reminded that she is written by an adult man.  However, there were some fun things in the book.  I did appreciate that the main character had a lot of spunk and loved chemistry.

We are now reading “One Hundred Birds Taught Me to Fly “(ad link) and I am very excited for it.  It is a collection of short stories and poems.  It should be really fun to discuss with the ladies.

Have you read either book?  I would love to know your insights on them.
