Gayle,

I apologize for missing the book discussion meeting about “Water for Elephants.” I DID read the book. . My friend Matthew (of 100-words fame) also read it and he thought it was poorly written. I grade it a little better, but there are so many circus books these days. I found the nursing home sequences personally disturbing, but that is probably because I am closer to that scene than you are. I am not looking forward to that. Of course, many of us draw the die-in-a-hurry straw, so I may not have to face Nurse Cratchet after all.
