Correction

To my two readers, who also happen to be in Book Club:

you are right, and I am sorry. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1st, and therefore you still have at least two weeks to read The Help, not the eight days I erroneously mentioned the other day. Thank you for tuning in to this blog, though it might occasionally contain mistaken information.

Speaking of books, I'm at a bit of a loss now that I finished the above. So I thought I might try What Should I Read Next? for some suggestions. I put in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and it gave me the following ideas:

The All True Travels And Adventures Of Liddie Newton - Smiley
Twilight Saga Book Set -- Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn - Stephanie Meyer
Technogenesis - Syne Mitchell
Life on the Border - Terri Windling
The Tangled Lands - Will Shetterly
The Daily Coyote: A Story of Love, Survival, and Trust in the Wilds of Wyoming - Shreve Stockton
Nora Jane: A Life in Stories - Ellen Gilchrist
Nightwalker - Jocelynn Drake
The Tiny One: A Novel - Eliza Minot
Sword and Sorceress XX - Marion Zimmer Bradley

Hmm. The only books here I've heard of are the Twilight Saga; don't know if that's a good or bad sign. My two readers, or anyone else who might happen to stop by, have you heard of or read any of these books? Any suggestions?

Goodness knows why LOTR led to a twilight recommendation, that series is frankly sentimental trash in my opinion, under the cover of darkness of course. You should read:

"BirdSong" by Sebastien Faulk
"Mort" by Terry Pratchett
