Specials by Scott Westerfeld (I gave this three out of five stars on Goodreads.com) This conclusion to the highly entertaining "Uglies" trilogy was "just okay for me, dawg." I wanted the love triangle to be a bigger part of the story and I had a hard time imagining what "Specials" look like. I thought the end was a little too "pretty little bow". Still, worth reading if you've been hooked by "Uglies".

I really dislike the "for the good of the group" mentality on Big Brother. It's getting old and boring.

What are the rumors circulating about them? And family members? Huh? I see everyone talking about how bad things are, but I can't find anything solid about bad things when I search. What is going on?
Kind of a stretch, maybe, but is this it?

We pay postage for books borrowed from libraries inside our consortium, and postage plus an additional $2.50 for libraries outside. Typical postage is around $2.30. The library will buy almost anything requested, though. That's a good thing since our closest bookstore is 45 minutes away. A "big name" bookstore is more than an...

Their endurance of such an unbelievable task and...
The Preservationist by David Maine (four out of five stars on Goodreads.com) A fictional account of the story of Noah and his ark. So good I don't know where to start. Noah's wife, their three sons and their wives all have a voice in this story about surviving the end of the world. Growing up, I only ever thought of the ark as a happy boat with cartoony animals and a pretty rainbow over the top. I'm kind of disappointed this story wasn't ever presented to me in...
How long have Jon and Kate been married? I wonder if they aren't just a little itchy. Years 7-10 are tough. I can't imagine dealing with that many kids, a production crew and media backlash through those years of my marriage. Probably would have made great tv, though.
