The book club I attend sporadically with my teacher friends picked this book for the meeting next month. Now, I can't go to the meeting, but have heard the book was pretty intriguing. So, I started the 971 page historical fiction-ish book last week and have really been into it. Tyler keeps asking "When's your book report due?" I imagine my reading time will be really cut short when the baby arrives, so I am soaking it all in now. And let me say 723 pages have not disappointed yet. I highly recommend this book!
Right before I started "Pillars" I finished this puppy:
It was really interesting, apparantly popular in the 60's, and I wouldn't call myself a HUGE Leon Uris fan, but the information was quite enthralling. I would recommend this book for the educational (although completely slanted) point of view about the conflict in Israel. I would say I cried at the end of this novel, and felt pretty drained, but am glad for having read the book.
So, that's pretty much what's been going on (other than the normal house cleaning, errand running, child rearing). I do have more to post from the weekend, and it'll totally fall way after the fact, but the pics are too cute to not post. Maybe I'll finish the last couple hundred pages and can get back to the norm again.
