    I thought for sure this was already here somewhere! I went to the Friends of the Library book sale yesterday. I got "serious" books but also the one I'm reading now: Pearls Before Swine http://tinyurl.com/5kbnol

    Walt Whitman's Civil War, by Walter Lowenfels.

    http://www.amazon.com/Walt-Whitmans-Civil-Capo-Paperback/dp/0306803550

    (A collection of Walt Whitman's letters and journal entries; full of insights in some ways more profound than his poems. Highly recommended.)

    I read Raymond E Feist's Into a Dark Realm yesterday, and it was very disappointing compared to his earlier work. Am still considering buying the next in the series despite it receiving poor reviews. Despite the jaded nature of his recent books, they are still quite compelling.

    Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult. After 9 months of reading books that were written for kids, I'm easing my way back into adulthood.
