What I've Been Re-reading

Here are some of the book I've been re-reading lately:

The Fifth Son by Elie Wiesel (One of my all-time favorite books.)

The Other Side of the Door by Nicci French (I think the older books from the husband-and-wife duo are better than the newer ones. My favorite from them is Killing Me Softly.)

Kiss and Tell by Cherry Adair

Rock Me
by Cherrie Lynn (Really enjoyed this one enough to almost want a tattooed guy of my own.)

Unleashed by Cherrie Lynn (Not quite as good as Rock Me.)

Girl Meets Girl by Susan X Meagher (It's amazing how not different female/female love relationships are from female/male ones, at least based on this collection of short stories.)

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (I can see why all the Pride & Prejudice fans also appreciate this one.)

What have you been reading?

I've been wanting to read Elie Wiesel's night, but haven't yet.

I checked out Eragon, but haven't started into it yet.

Somebody else recently mentioned North and South - I must get a copy soon and find out what all the hubbub is about.

@StephanieD--I'll look forward to seeing what you think. :)

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
