the anne rice book. i knew it was going to be a good one and that i would enjoy it immensely. i meant to read it a long time ago, but i think i was somewhat offput by the suggestion on the cover that it might be as good as "to kill a mockingbird." i just can't help it! that is THE book for me and the thought of another coming close is both thrilling and unrealistic at the same time. anyway. this is a solid read. if you like literature set in the civil rights time period, you'll definitely appreciate this one.
and now i think i need to return both of these to the high school library this week, so i can pick out some more historical fiction. after all, i have another cub scout campout this weekend. the forecast for friday night is currently at a balmy 25 degrees farenheit. if you don't see me here next week, you'll know that i've become a popsicle.
