Loved this book & passed it on to my niece who also enjoyed it & passed it on to her daughter.  This is how you get people to keep reading.

I have pulled out my copy of  "White Trash. The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America." by Nancy Isenberg....started but got very occupied with life.  Time to complete it!

@nyadrn   I have to start posting here again, it has been a long time!  Of course I am still reading, but lighter stuff due to lifestyle (stress) demands. Hope you are well.  The only place I post these days is the Front Porch but maybe that will change.  I do miss this thread and TV Talk.

20 years ago, when I first read Zadie Smith's "White Teeth" - I was really impressed. A work of fiction about a British family.  The unique style of writing that this 21 year old author developed was astonishing!  I loved it!   It immediately became a blow-away international best seller.  If you haven't read it - I highly recommend you do so.  Since "White Teeth" - I read a couple more of her books, but did not care much for them.  Am presently reading her "The Autograph Man".  It's going OK.

I tried reading Atlas Shrugged many, many years ago and all I can say is Boring.  Most of the books I read are between 500-1000 pages so the length didn't bother me.   Reading is my addiction & I couldn't imagine wasting time on this book.
