I did not think I would be but I picked up the Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I am not one for love stories but this is on a whole different level.

Pick it up it is good.

I read The Time Traveler's Wife a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.  I read it rather quickly and I think that helped me keep all the characters straight.

I thought I was a quick reader but I got so confused at times.  I couldn't tell whether that guy was coming or going?  Moving forward or going back.  I did cry hard at the end though.  If you liked that book you would love Jack Finney's Time and Again.  You also get some great history about NYC.  That is a favorite of mine.

We read 'Time Traveler's Wife' for my book group - it was one of those books that everyone seemed to enjoy. I liked it, too. Even when I wasn't as interested in the story, I found it very readable.

I just finished The Time Travelers Wife. I found it confusing at times, but I enjoyed it. I posted it, and it got grabbed almost immediately.

I have a damaged copy of it that can be a freebie if anyone orders from my shelf.  It is a trade paperback with water damage but still readable

It's my favorite book. I hope they don't do a movie! There's no way it could live up to the book, they'd have to cut out so much and I like the way I have Henry and Clare and everything else in my head.

I just finished Time Traveler and absolutely loved it.  I can't wait for the movie either and I agree, a book on Alba's life would be so cool.

That was a good book. It wasn't really what I was expecting, but hey, sometimes that's what makes a good book. I can't even remember where I got it, and I don't believe I have it anymore, but thanks for reminding me. I think that's one I could read again!

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult is amazing.  So is the one I am reading now.

They are making it into a movie in 2008 with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana.

This one is in my TBR pile. I'll have to move it closer to the top of the list.
