    Pharsalia, by Marcus Lucanus, which is a chronicle of the Roman Civil War. One day I am going to buy it and read the whole thing. This is just an excerpt from Part One. For any American Civil War buff, the parallels are stunning:

    I've heard good things about it, so that's the only one I'm excited to read. I read some of Dubliners last year and I read Madame Bovary last Spring. Pale Fire was not a fun read. It's a poem and then analysis by someone else. Both "the author of the poem" and the "analyst" are fictional characters created by Nabokov.

    Best novel I ever read. Blew The Da Vinci Code away. Got The Lost Symbol for my birthday last July, and still haven't read it. I've drifted away from novels, especially Brown's, since they're all so predictable.

    I just finished reading "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett - excellent book about the race relations and domestic staff and employers in 1960s Mississippi.
