What I'm reading - The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I haven't seen the movie yet, I wanted to read the book first since I had heard it was so good. And they were right... it's really really good! I don't really read as much as I would like, I am usually crafting something in my free time (did I really say free time, like I have any of that!)

But each night last week I would sit and read and I looked forward to that time to myself... to be quite, not move a muscle and engulf myself in someone else's life story. It's quite a stress reliever to stop thinking, or stressing about all the things I need to do and just send my mind off to another place in time. Like always, when I finish a really good book I say... gosh I really need to read more often.

Mmmmm, what should I read next? Any suggestions?
