I just finished Duma Key a couple weeks ago.

I liked it. It was a good 'summer read'.

I'm reading The Pact by Jodi Picoult now. So far it's ok.

I'm just about to start Duma Key as well.

It was a very good book. As you can imagine, it was very sad to read about all of the atrocities in Rwanda. However, Immaculee's story is a good one. I am amazed at how she was able to (for the most part) focus on the positive and could continue to see the good in people. I do not think that I could have or would have done the same.

Definitely a good read.

I had the same issue, but I stuck with it and was glad I did. It's definitely an interesting read if you can get past that.

I just started Skinny Bitch. After about 1/3 of my patients recommended it and my coworker threw it on my desk, i gotta read it! lol.

The book i keep picking up here and there over the past several months. I always thought adventure racing sounded interesting, but after reading 3/4 of this book, no way!:

I liked Skinny Bitch. I had to skip over the animal chapter though but the rest of it was fantastic.

Hey, you might like this other book about Rwanda by Fergal Keane:

Season of Blood.

I was telling Razzz that it was the first book about Rwanda I'd ever read and I was completely blown away and destroyed by it. I believe Mr. Keane is a BBC reporter. You can feel his rage, disgust and shock as you read this. It's also a quick little read, unlike the more lauded book, We wish to tell you that tomorrow you will be killed with your family by Phillip Gourevitch. That's also a good book. But the Keane book is...wow...it's a dagger.

I just finished this little gem. As I've been reading the recent thread "Is Indian Giver an offensive term?" in the Post Race Tent forum, I've thought a lot about what this book says about behaving like a decent friggin' human being.

I am going to be starting Dragon by Clive Cussler tonight.
