I'm trying to figure it out, but today my plan is to change my flight so i arrive from london at xna a few days before the wedding and buy a one-way to Albuquerque a few days after the wedding. I really want to be there its just figuring out if its the best plan bc it kinda means leaving here for good i think... life is confusing:) but i would LOVE to see your face!

The Kite Runner was so good wasn't it?! I think you will really like The Three Musketeers. I read The Catcher in the Rye in high school and absolutely hated it, but that could be because I was in high school. I really recommend adding Persuasion to your list. It is one of my favorite Austen books right up there with Pride and Prejudice.

Have you read any good non-fiction lately?
