I have decided to start reading all the books people have given me, but I haven't read yer. I'm reading Blind Side by Catherine Coulter now. It's too soon to know if I like it or not yet.

I just started reading Zero Day by David Baldacci. Someone gave me this book a few months ago and I have finally gotten around to reading it. This writer lives in Virginia like I do. It seems like an interesting book but, I have just started it,so I don't really know if I like it or not.

With my goal of reading 3 books of ~300+ pages this summer, I have read 2 now! Both are amazing books covering WWII era, great characters, great generational estates, spanning several countries, and with richly beautiful detail. Love, loss, and finding strength...these are historical fiction and written from a female narrator's perspective.

- The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley
- The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons

Footnote: I wish I had this much dedication to physical fitness though. Maybe I need to try listening to books on Mp3 while walking? Would love recommendations if so!

Just finished "Walking on Water", the last of the "The Walk" series, by Richard Paul Evans, and "Have a New Teenager by Friday" by Dr. Kevin Leman. Both excellent reads. Looking for something funny and light, but might just start the other book that I got from the library - "The Power of Four." Can't remember the authors right now, but somewhat DaVinci Code like, I think.

I have challenged myself to read 52 books in 2014. So far I have read 30 with the most recent being Wild:From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. This was an enjoyable read, I did find her writing somewhat repetitive though. I would recommend it. The book I just started yesterday is called Duncton Stone. It is part of a series. The first series of 3books is Duncton Chronicles and Duncton Stone is the 3rd book of a series which follows it. I am really frustrated with these books, I started reading them because I remembered them fondly from high school and I am not enjoying the second series as much as the first. The books are all 500 pages long and could be condensed into 250 each. The stories are all about moles. Little animals that burrow. It is based in England. I have two weeks to get through this last book. If I haven't finished it by then, I will give up and take it back to the library.

Here is a list of what I'm reading (too many going right now!)

1. Mr. Pip by Lloyd Jones (this was May's book selection, but I'm still trying to finish it)
2. Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler (June's book, just starting)
3. Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach (non-fiction; a little funny, but still tedious for me)
4. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (almost done)

I have a couple of different books going at the same time. It makes my husband crazy, but I figure if I can keep up with more than one television show, I can certainly keep up with more than one book. I just finished "The Hobbit" and am now working on the first Lord of the Rings book. I am also currently reading the 4th book of the "Left Behind" series..."Soul Harvest" It's my second time through the books. The other book I am reading is called "Cocktail Hour" by Tara McTiernan. Its on my kindle and I am having a hard time with it because the antagonist in this book really makes me mad and I don't see how the others cant see through her. I read, get angry and have to put it down...LOL

I'm reading "Three Steps to Enlightenment" by Gary Rutz and also "The Spark" by Chris Downe.

I have a bunch of free ebooks that I downloaded, but I want to get through some of these books on buddhism and enlightenment that I downloaded when I was learning about zen buddhism while researching a paper on Japan for my Multiculturalism class. I am intrigued by the idea of enlightenment. As soon as I get done, back to some good ole' fiction!

Hi everyone! I'm Alana! I am currently reading Between Sisters by Kristin Hannah. It's not bad, but I'm having a hard time digging in to it. It may be because I've been reading a lot of YA and it's just a different style of writing.

I am currently reading " The Supreme Macaroni Company" by Adriana Trigiani. I have not read anything by this author, but I am a new fan. She is a great writer.

I am also reading "Killing Jesus" by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. It is an interesting read.


Happy Reading.

I had a longing for Nora Roberts and swamps so I am re-reading Carolina Moon. Out of all the TV adaptations of her books, it is the only one I think they did any justice. But I love all Nora Roberts books pretty much. I just finished Tribute before this one and I think I will read High Noon, before moving on to some quality time with Anne Rice.
