    I read Harry Potter, and the first chapter or so of Cold Mountain, when I was warned that it wasn’t a “happy” book. Maybe we should pick on for book club. Not The Road-I hear it’s pretty depressing. Of course, I’m still only on page 4 of Anna and the King, so I have no bussiness picking another book.
