    The Glass Castle is a wonderful book, and what an inspiring story!! It is sad about her family, but the fact that any of them emerged from that childhood even remotely sane is a testament to what the human spirit is capable of. I enjoyed Half-Broke Horses, too :)

    I'm reading Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult right now... it's beautifully written but the subject matter makes it hard to read for me. I think I would've had a much easier time of it before I had kids!

    Btw the kindle version of Blaze of Glory is on sale until the end of March :)

    Those that like The Glass Castle might also enjoy the book by Barbara Robinette Moss called Change Me Into Zeus's Daughter. True story about her family as she was growing up. She wrote one called Fierce too.

    I like Janet Evonvitch's books.

    Also Robert Crais, Robert B. Parker, John Lescourt, Lee Child, Sue Grafton, David Carlton DVM.

    You name it, I will read it except for hard core Sci-Fi, or romance.

    Been reading the Foxfire books again, and have ordered them all now.

    I belong to Trade Used Books for Free with PaperBack Swap (the world's largest book swap) and trade books on there with others. I've got maybe 500 books listed, and there are 5.5 million I think to choose from, all free, (you just pay to ship yours off to another member.)

    But I love to read.

    At long last, Sharyn McCrumb has a new "ballad" novel: the real story behind Tom Dooley.

    She's been writing NASCAR novels, starting with "St. Dale" which was probably hilarious if you knew enough about NASCAR to get the joke. Sadly, I do not and have no wish to remedy my ignorance.

    Anyway, if you're not familiar with her work, most of her novels are set in Appalachia. The ballad novels generally move back and forth between the present day and whatever period the ballad concerned - although Tom Dooley so far is set entirely in 1866.

    Her Elizabeth McPherson series was good, too - present day chick lit kind of stuff, but funny.

    I just read "The Honourable Schoolboy" by John LeCarre' and "The Soul of a Horse" by Joe Camp this weekend.. About halfway through "Smiley's People" by LeCarre' now.

    Speed reading was the best class I had in college lol.
