A new book added to my favorites...

My vacation book ...

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.

Amazing, horrifying, inspirational, really brilliantly told story. It's been years since I've read Angela's Ashes, but this book, in many ways, reminds me of that book. Well worth reading.

I LOVED that book. And so many parts of it were laugh out loud funny -- like having the baby and dashing out of the hospital without paying. Or trying to get the piano in the house.

And then...it really did get horrible.

One of my recent favorites too. :)

That's the second recommendation I've had for that book...will have to add it to my list.

That is a good book, a tad depressing though.

Oooh, I'll surely add this one to my list!

I just finished A Year in Provence (after seeing it listed on your "Books I Love" list) and absolutely loved it! I chuckled all the way through and have now added Provence to my ever-growing "Places-I-want-to-visit-before-I'm-too-old" list! I can't wait to read a few more of Mayle's books later this summer :)

So... thanks for the recommendations-- keep them coming!
