Great Read

I decided once we moved to LA that I was going to join a bookclub through meetup.com, so that I had a good reason to read some really great novels as well as meet new people. The first meeting is on the 19th of this month and the novel we selected to read is called The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I borrowed it from a neighbor and hoped that I would have it finished by the bookclub meeting date, but it was such a great read that I finished it in about 3 days. It is such a compelling story and I couldn't put it down. Michael is actually reading it right now. He picked it up last night as soon as I finished it and he actually only has about 30 pages left to read. For anyone looking for a great novel to read that you will fly right through, you should definitely pick this one up.

I was also excited to see that they have made a movie of it and it will be out next weekend, the 16th. For anyone interested here's the trailer. If you read it
or end up seeing the movie, let me know. I would love to hear what you t
hink of it.
