Right now I am reading Les Miserables, the Julie Rose translation. I have read the book years ago, and seen the musical, and the movie, but I guess I just wanted to revisit the book. I am loving it so far.

Anyone here like Joseph Heller? You may be familiar with Catch-22, but have you read his other books, especially Something Happened? If anyone has read it, let me know. I would like to discuss it.

Just finished reading "Becoming" by Michelle Obama. It is a very good autobiography, talking about her childhood and life up until her husband left the white house. It's a nonfiction book that will likely interest even those who only read fiction.
