i love books!

today i got some alone time so i decided to wander around barnes & nobles for a few hours. i am now in 2 book clubs & was in search of one of the selections ~ the sunflower by richard paul evans. i searched it on amazon to see what it was about, but apparrently, i didn't pay attention to who the author was when i looked online. when i got to b & n i was completely surprised because the book that i found there was very different. the one for my book club by richard paul evans is about 2 people who find love unexpectedly after they've both experienced tragedies with their respective engagements. the sunflower book i found on amazon is by simon wiesenthal and is his memoir of time spent in a concentration camp & the ability to forgive. i am much more interested in the one that is not my book club pick. so now i have composed a wish list of books i'd like to read ~ but now being part of 2 book clubs, don't know when i'll get the chance to read them. :) you can click on the title of each of the books below to see what they are about. tell me if any of them interests you or if we have different tastes in books.
