I finally finished Haroun and the Sea of Stories. Didn't love it, but it wasn't the writing. I'll have to give Rushdie another try. While slogging through Haroun, I did manage to read another No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency book, which never made it onto the list since technically I was also reading the Rushdie.
On to something totally different: Julie & Julia. Food and cooking, yummers. Will start that this afternoon while at chemo with the Goose.
