Here's what I don't want: I'm not in the mood for non-fiction, unless it's a rip-roaring read (like, oh, say, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), and I don't need anything that's going to tax my brain at this particular time of year, so no existentialistic, uber-cerebral junk. Oh, and no romance crapola, either. In short, I'm looking for a plain, ol' good story.
So, I put it to you, friends: What's the last good book you read, the one that you didn't want to put down?
I'll even contribute to the conversation. A few weeks ago I read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, a book I'd put off reading for a while. Well, little Shorties, I couldn't read the thing fast enough! I highly recommend it if you've been putting off reading it, too.
Don't feel compelled to write a book review; a title and author are sufficient. Raves and book reviews are always welcome, however.
Please, please send me something that will make me read late, late into the night.
