Barbara Kingsolver is a powerful, lyrical writer. Her book Prodigal Summer manages to slip you science lessons here and there without your knowledge--at the moment, all you know is that you are thoroughly immersed in the lush Appalachian life she weaves for you, able to hear the birds trilling, see the tan blur of a coyote, feel the honeysuckle in your hand.

One half of Poisonwood Bible is one of my favorite books.

I'm intrigued by libraries and MySpace. I haven't jumped on the latter bandwagon yet, but it sounds interesting.

One half?

That book sticks with me. I still find food for thought just from my memory of reading it.
