circe, I remember the first 30-40 pages of the first book were a little dry. Are they important? No. The book essentially starts when the protagonist meets the old rich guy. Larsson is candy, but it is well-written candy.

I agree with RSN - I couldn't keep track of who was doing what to whom in the beginning of GWDT and it didn't matter once the story got going. I was wishy washy about the book. The story keeps your interest but I thought it was written a bit oddly at times - like it had never been edited (or at least not well). Funny though - after thinking that, an english professor told me that the books were not edited - they were published as they were orignally written. Since the author died before they were published, supposedly they were published "as is". I did just buy the second book after reading a few things in between. My friends keep telling me the third book ties everything all together.

I'm reading Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.

It's fantastic. Can't put it down.

I'm reading My Life From Scratch for a book club.

It is an easy read and I am enjoying it.

The Help.

God it's good.

Oooh, IL, I just borrowed The Help from a friend. I think I'll start it next.

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer was amazing. Very powerful and tragic.

The Help was a terrific read!

I'm reading "Sorrow on Sunday," by Ann Purser. It's part of a mystery series set in a present-day English village, but the sleuth is a working-class mother of 3. She's an awesome protagonist.

Yes, it was! My understanding is that a movie base on the book is in the works...

No heavy stuff for me right now!
I just started Clive Cussler's latest Dirk Pitt adventure, Cresecent Dawn.
Good reading in the car during holiday season...

A few on the night stand right now;

3 Days in August by Buzz Bissinger: about Tony La Russa, the St Louis Cardinals' manager.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Moshin Hamid. Just started, but is so far a fascinating read.

Today it's Carl Hiaasen's "Lucky You." I love Hiaasen. The first one I read was "Skinny Dip," which was a really fun read.

I just finished "Violets are Blue" by James Patterson (part of his Alex Cross series) and have started "Gap Creek" - so far, so good...
