  1. Your Friday 56 is very interesting! I need to add this one to my wishlist.

  2. Interesting 56. I didn't realize Erin Brockovich had wrote books! I only know of her back story in the movie that Julia Roberts starred in. I will have to check out this one it looks interesting!

  3. Hmmm. A crutch and a duffle bag. I wonder how far they're going?

    Got mine up--from Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

  4. Great post Freda! That Erin Brockovich is one fine, courageous woman.

  5. I haven't read the book, but I have seen the movie and it was very good !
