Book Recommendation

Has anyone else read this? I could not put it down! The Glass Castle is the memoir of Jeannette Walls, a big shot gossip columnist/journalist, who grew up practically homeless and very impoverished. Although parts were depressing, I loved the way she and her siblings ultimately rose to success. And, although her parents had their problems, Walls is loving and respectful. It's one of those books that make you appreciate your abundance.

i love your recommendations and this cover is too cute to resist. i admit, i love judging a book by it's cover, typeface and layout.

am i terribly shallow?!

I agree! This is an extremely fascinating and eye-opening read. I highly recommend it also. I read "The Kite Runner" per your recommendation and thought that was an awesome book, albeit quite brutal in places. What a world we live in!
