where's Meeganie ? As a Kundera fan as myself I was wondering if she could give me the English titles of his books for I read them in French

*thinks her wedding's approaching...*

It's quite fun and very easy to read.
I recommend it.

Next book is a biography of Marlon Brando. I have never read biographies before. Don't know if I'll like it. But I love Marlon Brando, so ...
Another nice coincidence: I just spend an entire week watching Marlon's movies!
He was an excellent actor -- so sad the way he ended his days!

Hey Valentina ! I see we have some things in common !

I studied A Streetcar Named Desire this year and we watched the play a lot.
Did you watch it ?

I somehow paid tribute to him on a pic I posted in the Photos Thread. (Lemonade) I can't remember which one it is actually...

A bientôt ! / See you !

Marie

Yes, I watched it.
Unfortunately, I can't tell you the other movies I saw, becuase I just know their Italian titles.
Je regrette. Pardon!

There's no way I can narrow it down to just one book. But my favorite book that I've read recently The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.

I read it a long time ago, and remember really liking it. Oddly enough, I can't remember what it's about. I know it's considered and American classic. Doesn't it have something to do with racism in the South? I really should re-read this one.

To Kill A Mockingbird is the story of a Southern lawyer (Atticus Finch) who defends a black man who is accused of raping a white woman.

I know this because I have seen the movie with Gregory Peck.

I must read this book

Someof you mentioned Secret Life of Bees...amazing boook. Some of you also mentioned Girl with Pearl Earring and Lovely Bones...loved them both.

A fabulous book is called The Color of Water..I forget the author. This is an easy read about a white Jewish mother raising about 10 black children in Harlem by herself. It is a great book.

Also I loved the Yaya Sisterhood and Little Alters Everywhere series. The book was much better than the movie.

I've just finished reading "To Kill a Mockingbird", excellent book, one of the best I've read lately
Now I have to finish "Dubliners" and few others that I'm reading at the same time...
Is it only me or do other people do this as well, read several books at the same time?

vivaSA : I can't read several books at the same time. I did it at university because I was always late to finish them but when I read for my pleasure I read one book after the other.

PS great avatar viva SA, it used to be mine a few months ago !

Marie (reading The Object of My affection at the moment)
