I'm REALLY trying to get my kid interested in the Hobbit, it was a book that completely changed my life as a grade 7 kid. (I think it was grade 7, anyway.) But there is no way I will sit through THREE OVERDONE MOVIES based on a simple, unpretentious, rather short book like the Hobbit. The values and philosophy represented by Tolkein, C.S. Lewis and their circle at Oxford had absolutely nothing to do with big old Hollywood money-grabs.

I'm reading "The Dog Stars" by Peter Heller. It's a little different from what I usually read and the writing style kind of throws you off now and then, but I'm conviced I won't be disappointed with it.

Just finished "The Encyclopedia of Me" by Karen Rivers of British Columbia, Canada. She's done quite a few YA or preteen books, but this one I thought was exceptional in concept, character, humour, relevance and quality of writing. I recommend her work to anyone, but especially to girls in the puberty- or almost-puberty-zone.

I just started reading "The Serpent and the Rainbow" by Wade Davis. A nonfiction book about zombies? I'm there!
