Things I dream of...Time Travel:  "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett 
Read "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett late this summer and it literally took me back (as if I had been there before!) to Mississippi in the late 50s and 60s.  Absolutely amazing read!

I found out about it accidentally on a flight to Florida in the free airplane magazine, can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this one!
