Just a quick note on a couple of books I'm reading at the moment.

My online book club is reading and discussing Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I really am enjoying this book, and learning a lot about Nigeria and the Biafra civil war of the late 60's. I really wish this book had a map so I could follow the movement of the characters.

To balance out the seriousness of Half of a Yellow Sun, I started the humorous book, Can't Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg. It's a warm fuzzy book, set in Missouri with familiar characters.

Now I'm having a hard time deciding which book to read in the evening :)
