Bald In The Land Of Big Hair: A True Story by Joni Rodgers
4.0 out of 5 stars Made me laugh out loud, May 11 2002
I really appreciate the author's humor in this book. I am dealing with big health issues and relate on many many levels to much of what she talks about. Her wit and self-deprecating humor, combined with her honesty about the stuff that isn't funny makes this book really ring true for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it - hated it, May 10 2002
It took me a while to get into this one. My sister had read it and just raved and raved about it. I started and felt like I was just plodding along. But about halfway through, I finally got caught up in the characters and the plot. I was incredibly unhappy with the resolution. This is one of those "Bridges of Madison County" books where you just want to shake the stupid characters and ask what they were thinking. I was not happy with the ending at all. But it was a good read overall.
Girl With a Pearl Earring: A Novel by Tracy Chevalier
4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and good, May 10 2002
This little book has great characters. It doesn't take long to read, but it will stay with you for a while afterwards. I have passed it on to several friends and family and everyone has loved it. The characters feel real and you want to know what's going to happen to them. It's fun to imagine that this is really how the painting came about.
