I've read a bunch of books in the past few days, so thought I'd catch you up. You can read my reviews at GoodReads.com by clicking here , but here's a quick synopsis:

"The Great Gatsby", by F. Scott Fitzgerald -- quite liked it, and although I'm sure I was supposed to read this in school, I didn't remember a bit of it.

"A Long Way Down" by Nick Hornby -- I liked it, but while it's funny at times, it's a bit dark and the subject is macabre, so it's not going to be for everyone.

"The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid" by Bill Bryson -- laugh-til-you-cry hilarious. You have to read it.

"Change of Heart" by Jodi Picoult -- I really liked this one and read it in one day.

"Rant" and "Diary" by Chuck Palahniuk -- Eh. I liked "Invisible Monsters" so much better.

So what have YOU been reading?

    I've read the first three on the list and enjoyed them all.

    I just finished a biography of the Vanderbilt family and am about to start "My Antonia."
