    And they live in tents in their back yard because they bought three books from their Amazon wish list and their spouses tossed their sleeping bags at them...poor dears.:p

    To get this back on track, I'll tell about the three books I rescued from the sale cart at the library last week:

    A Lesson Before Dying-Ernest Gaines

    A Hole in the Earth-Robert Bausch

    Salt Dancers-Ursula Hegi

    Today I came home and found a RABCK (Random Act of Book Crossing Kindness) waiting for me - 253 by Geoff Ryman. It's a book that I've been looking for for ages but have been unable to find, so I'm so grateful for the kind BookCrossing member and her surpise act of kindness!! (the member who sent it was LittleMoo, by the way :D)

    If you like Doctorow's historical fiction, give Ragtime a try. I liked that one as it was about late 19th century America and industrialization, a time period that is a favorite of mine. The March should be very interesting as it is a Civil War piece that received a ton of press. I haven't read it, though I'm curious as to what others think about it.
