This month I read: The Five People you Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom, and Some People and Some Other Places by J. California Cooper.

Last month I read the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, and The Known World by Edward Paul Jones

the five people -- did they make that into a movie? i recently saw something about that in the paper...

also, what did you think of davinci code? it warped my whole idea of religion (which was already a bit shaken since the last time i went to church willing was over a decade ago)...

Five People was made into a tv movie, but I did not watch it. I heard that the movie was not as enjoyable as the book.

I really got into the Da Vinci Code. I enjoyed reading about the symbols. Also at the same time, I remembered that this was written from one person's perspective, so I am sure things were made up. All churches have their dark secrets.
