Catching Up on Past Books

Ok, if memory serves me correctly, we've managed to go through two books since the blog was last updated.

1. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

2. Florence of Arabia - by Christopher Buckley

I liked 'em both. :-)

Next book? I don't remember. I think we're up at Bethany's next time but I don't recall what we're reading.

hrumph... I thought we were reading something by Kurt Vonnegut, but there it is.
