    I agree about Angels and Demons vs DaVinci – though you’re one up on me, having managed to finish DV!

    We part company on Austen, though, and I’ve been a fan since long before it was trendy. But they’re not all equally good. (I’ve always thought I could happily smack Fanny Price upside the head…)

    Memoirs of a Geisha – if you don’t have time to read the book, the movie is a decent rendition of it.

    Lovely Bones – interesting, even though the premise (starts with the murder of the narrator) is a bit unsettling for some.

    Does anyone finish Ulysses??

    I read daVinci Code in one night – it annoyed me in that I wanted to know what happened, but was not enjoying many aspects of the writing! lol!

    I did like Pride & Prejudice when I read it as an adult but definitely doesn’t rate an “again & again” for me – though studying it THREE times through my scholastic career may have had something to do with the enjoyment getting sucked out of it!

    Memoirs of a Geisha, I definitely want to get to in either format & I’m definitely willing to give Lovely Bones a try. I’m not sold on The Life of Pi – have heard mixed reviews on that one.

    LOL, Wasn’t it “Solo Mom” who claimed ayone who said they HAD read Ulysses was a liar??? I’d put War & Peace on that same list!
