    A Prayer for Owen Meany : A Novel by John Irving. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys--best friends--are playing in a Little League baseball game in New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills his best friend's mother. Owen Meany believes he didn't hit the ball by accident. He believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after 1953 is extraordinary and terrifying. He is Irving's most heartbreaking hero.

A prayer for Owen Meany

A memoir that will move you with its crude, funny, slap in the face realism. You will never see things the same. Perceptions will be changed

Believe it or not I hadn't read this book until last year...and then I listened to it. Fantastic!

With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

Three's Next- Three to Get Deadly

In One Person by John Irving I've loved John Irving since high school. This book is no exception. It's not my favorite!, but it is wonderful. The themes are classic Irving, with additions, as usual.

A fascinating retelling of the Lewis and Clark "Corps of Discovery" expedition. History so exciting, it reads like a novel.

Read the "Odd Thomas" series. It is sooooo worth it.

Again, one of my all time favorites. Laugh out loud funny, yet so very touching too.
