I am writing to see if you guys can help out a group of people to win a contest in ideablob. The winner gets 10000 to help launch their idea. As book lovers, I am sure that you guys are aware of the literacy problem that american confronts, and this group is trying to launch a a program to help conbat that amongst at risk girls. The project is called Girl Talk: Read to Achieve and you can help make it a reality by registering (it takes no less than a minute, I swear!) and voting at http://ideablob.com/ideas/2431-Girl-Talk-R

What else have you all been reading of late?
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
Audrey Niffenegger's innovative debut, The Time Traveler's Wife, is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.
I am only 3/4 of the way through Wicked, having received my copy last Friday.
I think we'll skip a 'December Book of the Month' since it's a very busy time for most people. Hope that's ok?
Anyway...I've babbled enough. I look forward to reading next month's selection with you all!
