I would just like to give a shout out to SNL for giving my husband such a creative idea for my Christmas Present. That's right folks, he followed the advice of Ryan Sandburg and Justin Timberlake. If you haven't seen the video clip-just go to youtube. You will find it and even if you don't want to admit it you will think it is funny. Thank you babe that was thoughtful.

So I know that I am probably one of the last people on earth to read this book but I just finished and I am completely "haunted" by it. WOW. In California I started a book club with some friends and forced them to choose this book as the first. We then moved and I didn't really pick it up until the other day. Since I declared a readathon and drove Seth nuts by doing my usual OCD reading routine. That's the problem for me and books, I can't seem to put them down, I just want to finish. I get obsessed with finishing and talking about the book. So much so that I drive people crazy. Anyway....I am an emotional person but not with books. I am pretty good at detaching myself from the characters and I rarely cry. I think the last book I cried was "Where the Red Fern Grows" but I was 8 and those were different times. This book however made me stop and sob several times. I don't want to go into details because I want a certain member of my family to read the book but each "sad part" (for lack of better words) hurt me on a different level. At the end I wanted to call Mrs. Bestor and ask if I could write a book report just for fun. Great book, EVERYONE should read it.
Post Script: When I reread my post I couldn't read "just for fun" without the Nacho Libre accent. (Thanks honey)
