Where are the children by Mary Higgins Clark

When I was younger I loved Mary Higgins Clark. I quit reading her stuff after a while though because it became so predictable. Always the person you least expected was guilty and after a while, that became the person you automatically suspect… you get the idea. This was one of her first, so I expected it to be better. It wasn’t. I’m just too old and too single to appreciate the idea of the victimized, na├»ve woman and the oh-so wonderful man appearing just in time to save the day.

Reading Lolita in Tehran

Read about this book in O magazine. Had to read it. Broke my rule about buying new books, and it was well worth every penny. The value of literature. You have to love books to understand it. Ideas are universal and transcend geography and religion and backgrounds. Eye opening regarding the lives of women in Iran. Gives you a new appreciation for living in the U.S. We tend to be so ignorant regarding the lives of people in other cultures. Loved this book so much.
