I am also reading a WONDERFUL book, The Lost Wife. It is another WWII/Germany story and I cannot put it down. I absolutely LOVE my Kindle and am just reading like mad. I can now read on the bus, standing up, which is awesome! Makes the bus ride go by so quickly. I'm a little sad for this book to end because it is so good.
The weather here has also been great. We are in the rainy season but have no rain! This also means no snow for Tahoe, which is really probably upsetting the economy over there AND travel plans for many. But, I don't mind the sun!
