Oooo, The Bell Jar! I haven't read that since 10th grade, but I remember enjoying it. It probably appealed to my teenage-woe-is-me side. I'll bet you didn't know I had one of those! Ha ha! I'd be interested to know your opinion of Water for Elephants. I've been considering suggesting it for book club.

*sigh* The Kite Runner. Such a good book. Tough but precious all at the same time. I've been considering re-reading or at least started A Thousand Splendid Suns. You read WAY faster than I do.

Glad to hear about Nate's first hunting trip and that I'm not the only who married a Campbell who would give that speech. ;D James has yet to go hunting, but has been asking for many years. He did shoot cans with the cousins a few years back under Uncle Paul's supervision.
