About meretired librarian; love books, but have trouble remembering what I've read.

My mind is like a library where all the books I've read have fallen off the shelves and are scattered here and there.

Now I am organizing my books with LibraryThing, and things are going so much better.

Thank you Dick

My mother neve liked her name because she lived in the time when the movie 'Aurore' came out. A french canadian movie telling the true story of a little girl named Aurore that got basically killed by her step mother following a life time of physical abuse. That little girl lived not far away from my mother'home town and she got name after her... sad.
Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thanks for the good wishes! I've been meaning to read Fear and Trembling for some time now; I'll try and get to it soon. Also, I've actually been considering becoming a librarian myself.
I felt the same way about Life of Pi when I finished reading the book with my book club. But, we had one of the most arousing discussions going back and forth as to which ending was the true outcome. Also, I find even though I read the book a couple years ago, I don't think I have discussed any book as much as this novel. Although not one of my favorite reads, the story has certainly stuck in my mind and has provided some interesting conversations.
I agree there is a lack of magic in "Life of Pi", and I am surprised that it has created such hoopla as well. Do you have a favorite read these days?
