Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese, excellent.
The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker, excellent.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett, just started but seems promising.
Which Snow Leopard are you reading? I saw two on Amazon. At first I thought you were referring to The Far Pavilions by MM Kaye because that begins with a birth accompanied by the roar of a snow leaopard. I read that so long ago, I'd like to try it again. Had to check out a romance recommended by your dad's bible group, so I just downloaded Scarlet Thread to my Kindle.

Wodehouse (one of my favourite authors), The Snow Leopard, The Scarlet Thread (a romance that my father had to read for a Bible study group and recommended), Flatland, Indian Summer and Firmin. I also just popped The Reader on my pile and want to start that soon. I think that's about it!<br /><br />How about everyone else? Anything good, bad, great?<br /><br />Terri<br />
