I just finished "Good in Bed" and loved it! Its one of those books you don't want to end, I keep thinking about the characters and wondering how they're doing, lol. I also read "In her Shoes" and "Little Earthquakes" by Jennifer Weiner.
I just got "Good in Bed" a chick-lit book. Haven't started it yet. I really liked the Sue Grafton books. But I like to read fluff most of the time. So I just skip over the Kinsey backstory. I figure it's just so people can read any book not in order for fun, or get into the whole series. I love her landlord Henry. He's adorable. And her sarcastic/dry humor is right up my ally.

I've read that and I just finished the next one in the series, "Lost In A Good Book." It took me a while to get into the first one too because I couldn't figure out all of the weird stuff in her world, but once you get into it, it's not bad. The second one is a lot like the first.
Finished up the "The Eyre Affair" really liked it. It was a bit strange,out there and quirky. Some reviews have likened it to a "grown up Harry Potter type book" or "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy type book". If your an English lit buff or "Jane Eyre" fan..you might want to give it a try...although it did take a few chapters for me to get into it.

Ooh, thank you! I will put both on my Amazon list
by the way, soho, if you like mystery novels, check out paco ignacio taibo. his novels are quite surreal and strange, and really twist up the whole hard-boiled genre. a lot of his books talk about the current state of mexico in a roundabout way. he's one of my favorites. really terrific. also, i can't recommend mario vargas llosa enough. he's peru's most famous writer and he veers from denigrations of south american society to these wonderfully free-wheeling accounts of cosmopolitan life in lima to off-the-wall discussions of art history! he is so wonderful and fun and lush and heartbreaking and thought-provoking. check out "aunt julia & the scriptwriter" for an introduction... but "the war of the end of the world" is my favorite. it's based on a true story about a town in brazil that is established by this madman prophet and his crew of prostitutes, thieves, beggars... and they make a military stand against the brazilian army. it's incredibly epic and may be my favorite book of all time. sorry for the long post. i'm a book junkie.
