      1. Tell me what you think of Becoming Jane. I loved the beginning, but then it seemed all conjecture.

        I read In Cold Blood years ago, and still recall how cold I felt. Reading the book is similar to watching a train wreck – you know something awful is about to happen, but you cannot tear your eyes away.

      2. I love Gathering Blue. Lois Lowry is an amazing writer and The Giver is one of my favorites. Let me know what you think of Gathering Blue.

      3. Ms. Place:
        I just watched Becoming Jane today and I loved it. At first, I wasn’t sure if Anne Hathaway could pull off an English accent let alone THE Jane Austen, but overall, I was pleased by her performance. I loved the beautiful cinematography, costumes, settings, and of course, whenever there is a notable British novel to movie adaptation, casting directors raid the Harry Potter cast for notable British character actors. James McAvoy (is that how you spell his last name) was incredibly sexy and charming. That alone recommends the film!

        The Giver is one of my all time favorite books too! Gathering Blue is next on my TBR list. This week, I happen to be reading my library finds in the order appearing on the post. I finished Fighting Ruben Wolfe today (it was a very short read but so good that it cinches my idolization of Markus Zukas even more), I just started Out of the Dust, which is promising. I predict I will start Gathering Blue sometime tommorrow.
