I know we have an old book thread but I can not find it and it is most likely too old to post to.
I quite often read older books since I subscribe to the theory that a new book is one you have not read. I just read a good one, at least 7 on 10 scale. When I went looking for a link you could follow, I found it is now a movie, one I may have to see since it is now second run here.
For your reading pleasure I suggest: Water for Elephants
is a historical novel by Sara Gruen. It is a engrossing story about circus life in the US in the 1930's. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_for_Elephants
I hope other readers will contribute to this thread as time goes by. We can't spend all our time on the Internet.
What good book, old or new, have you read recently?
