Why has it taken me so long to discover this thread? I am currently working at Barnes and Noble, so books = love.
I'm reading Anna Karenina for my Russian class right now. I'm only on page fifty so far, but I really like it.
I just finished Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende. A friend let me borrow it and I am glad I took her up on it, because it was a great book! If anyone happens to be at all interested in the California Gold Rush (I know, what a random interest), it is done from a different perspective than most everything else existing on the topic.
