I love that picture for It's Monday!I've heard of Summer of My German Soldier and will have to look for your review. The Writing Class sounds like an interesting title as well.

Out of Africa has been a book I have wanted to read for a long time. I should get to it. I am looking forward to your review!

I started reading Shogun about 4 or 5 years ago. I got about half way through and for some strange reason I didn't pick it up again. I did enjoy it but I would have to start from the beginning again. Hope you are having better luck than I did (I'm sure I will get back to it).

I read The Summer of My German Soldier last summer. I had to take my car to the dealer for some work and I sat in the waiting room of the dealership reading it and weeping. It is so good. I wish that it was read more by teens today. It is certainly a book that begs to be discussed.

@Karen, how could you quit halfway through? I would think about quitting if it weren't for the hours and effort I'd put in so far! No quitting for me. Not, at least, after more than 700 pages!
