    I loved Shadow of the Wind too, so i bought his next one The Angles Game.... beware, that is even more dark and depressing (but still a great book!)

            I'm so excited....FI just told me that he wants to buy me an ereader for xmas!! Now it's up to me to pick out which one I want. I'm leaning towards the new Nookcolor that's coming out this month. But if anyone has opions they want to share I'm definitely open to suggestions!

                I have the Nook. Personally, I wouldn't go with Nookcolor. It's geared more towards tablet people like the iPad. If you're going to do serious reading the LCD screen strains your eyes. I'm INLOVE with my nook. Go to facebook and join the nook page. There's a ton of discussions on both. I don't see why you would need colors for books. They aren't in color, they are black and white. Unless you read a ton of magazines. But that's just my opinion!!!!! Oh and the Nook gets an update this month! YAY!

                  I am kind of a tablet type person, lol....I haven't bought an ipad yet, but have very seriously considered one (and it's still not out of the running really). I was actually thinking of getting one as my ereader but it's a little bigger than I want. I have the Samsung Galaxy S phone - which is all touch screen, and has a super bright display screen, and I totally love it. So if the nook color is just kind of a bigger version of my phone I'd love it. But you're right - hours of reading my be an eye strain. I think I'm going to take your suggestion and check out the facebook page tho!

                    Well..I don't know if it is really Canadian...I just assumed so since it's available at Chapters Indigo...which is Canadian!

                    And yes Heather...you are my honourary canuck!

                      I just finished a few books that were recommended in this thread.

                       

                      The glass castle - good book!  It was one of those books that I just kept thinking "OMG are you kidding me?" while reading, but not in a bad way.  In a way that I just had to keep reading lol.  When I was done I felt compelled to tell someone about the book and what happened in it.  Unfortunately that person was my husband who really didn't care.  But at least I got it out of my system :)

                       

                      Diary for Nicholas - I needed a really fast easy read and this was the perfect book for that.  Kept my interest and I finished it in 2 days.

                       

                      The next one I'll start this week is the Girl with the dragon tattoo, since all you ladies rave about it!
