I am not going to be abandoning Blogger for Facebook. Now that the novelty has worn off, Facebook is a fun place to get in touch with "lost" people, but you can't really do any writing there. So Blogger still has its place.

I like LibraryThing, also - you can write reviews, get free books, etc. I was reading some other people's reviews and came across a reader who didn't like To Kill a Mockingbird quite as much the second time around. The first time she read it, at age 14, she thought it was the best book ever. I have to admit I never *loved* TKAM. The books I loved that were assigned in high school were Catcher in the Rye and Gatsby. What books did you like from your high school curriculum?

I made a new recipe tonight (new to us). It's basically cauliflower, penne, tomato cream sauce with herbs, and some Parmesan, which is then sprinkled with breadcrumbs dipped in olive oil and baked. Yummy.

One of my favourite books ever, which I originally had to read my sophomore year of high school, is The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. I remember being really surprised by the solution to the mystery and I enjoyed how the story was told from different points of view.

I remember you recommended that before. I should get off my butt and read it :)

I should warn you that it starts off a little slow, at least in my opinion. But it was worth it in the end. :)

Can I get the recipe for the cauliflower-penne thing? Sounds like a good thing I could make MIL for dinner when she comes over.
