I saw something about that story on a news show a couple weeks ago, Nappy_curly_crown, so maybe someone powerful will hear about it and make amends to her family. It's an amazing story... she's helped so many people.

I'm reading Sins of the Father at the moment. It's really good, one of those that make you stay up late to find out what happens next.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
I'm now reading Isabel Allende's "Island Beneath the Sea" and really liking it.

I'm reading 1Q84 by Murakami right now and loving it. I definitely recommend it.
Haven't read this whole thread so not sure if someone mentioned it, but I just put down Room by Emma Donoghue.
I had heard rave reviews from 2 people, and always see it in the staff picks section at book stores. It won a ton of awards and whatnot so I thought I'd give it a try.
Bought it yesterday around noon, and just finished all 321 pages. I couldn't put it down! So, so good. The fact that it is written from the perspective of the 5 year old boy adds such a strong element. Highly recommend this book!

"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Beasts of New York

A violent, epic, action-packed urban quest full of very eccentric, often hilarious, extremely dangerous characters who also happen to be animals the wildlife of New York City, to be exact.

I loved this book, although the end dragged on a bit. But even so, I would give this a 4.5 star rating. Very enjoyable.. makes you look at squirrels, cats, dogs, and birds a little differently.

I'm currently reading the second book in the hunger games series "catching fire". So far so good!

I just finished Great Expectations. Something I'd always wanted to read, but never gotten around to. Next I'm on to Containment Room 7 and Big Foot War 2. They are horror, which is a "from time to time" reading genre for me. But more importantly (to me) they were written by people I know. I have to support the creative natives.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

It's also the first Stephen King book I've read. I must find more!

A feel good book
CurlyFireHorse
Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny
Right now I'm reading The Flame Alphabet, Putting Makeup on the Fat Boy, and Ninth Ward.

Nappy and Gretchen, I heard about that book as well. An excellent subject.

I am now going to write down Emma D.'s book and Bekka's, then request them both from the library.

I'm reading the first in The Sandman series of graphic novels (rec. by nynaeve) and a book about handwriting in America.

(I'm also rereading The Onion's Our Stupid World. And I just read The White Mitten, a children's book, because the drawings were so good.)
