emoticon Have we been slacking off on our reading?

I know I have. Ever since I got HuluPlus and Netflix on my Nook I've been catching up on shows. It's definitely less expensive. I can't believe how much I was spending on books.

But I had to catch up with my favorite P.I. Kinsey and just started reading, W Is for Wasted by Sue Grafton.

Last night I watched the Hunger Games on Netflix. It was pretty good, but the books are so much better.

Right now, I'm working on The Paris Wife (historical fiction based on Ernest Hemingway and his first wife) as well as Beneath the Sands of Egypt: Adventures of an Unconventional Archaeologist ( a highly engrossing memoir). It's a departure since I usually read mysteries and fluff, but both are worth reading.

Awww, the classics are always fun Fiestyrenes. If you like Jane Austen stuff, have you come across the lizzie bennet diaries? It's a modern version of "Pride and Prejudice", set today with Lizzie Bennet having a youtube vlog, and some of the characters had twitter conversations.

I found out about it late, so I'm only catching up on it now and am around the Thanksgiving episodes (like episode 65? There's 100 of them total).

www.lizziebennet.com/

The weird thing is, my favorite character is Lydia Bennet. And if you've read "Pride and Prejudice" you know how really odd that is.

.....

Oh, since I went off topic on books, I'll give a list of a few: I got in an odd mood at the library yesterday. I picked up "Storm Front" the new book by "Richard Castle", the Nathan Fillion character from the ABC tv show. It's funny and kind of a James Bond parody/spy story genre. It's mostly action fluff but funny. (For fans of the show, there's a cameo of Nikki Heat and a minor character named "Roy Montgomery"). emoticon

I also picked up a book about Richard III that apparently inspired that dig where they just recently found his bones? It looks intriguing, (but the print is so tiny!) emoticon

And finally, I picked up "Anne Perry and the Murder of the Century" that I read about in the Washington Post book review. I had heard the Victorian mystery writer Anne Perry had been involved in a murder when she was young...from what I've read so far, it's a very bizarre story. emoticon

I need to print out this thread so I know what to pick up my next library visit! emoticon

I didn't get very far in reading The Witness. After 30 pages it seems pretty predictable.


So now I just started Open and Shut (Andy Carpenter Series #1) by David Rosenfelt.

I'm beginning a new book "Hidden", by Tomas Mournian.

"When Ahmed's parents send him to a residential treatment center known as Serenity Ridge, it's with one goal: to "fix" their son, at any cost. But eleven months of abuse and overmedication leave him desperate to escape. And when the opportunity comes, Ahmed runs away to San Francisco.There, he moves into a secret safe house shared by a group of teens. Until they become independent at eighteen, the housemates hide away from authorities, bound by rules that both protect and frustrate. Ahmed, now known as Ben, tries to adjust to a life lived in impossibly close quarters with people he barely knows, all of whom guard secrets of their own. But even if they succeed in keeping the world at bay, there's no hiding from each other or from themselves. And there's no avoiding the conflicts, crushes, loneliness, and desire that could shatter their fragile, complicated sanctuary at any moment. . ."

I just finished the Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwall...I got half the way through it before I realized it was book # 17 in a series, it was a good book by itself but I don't think I'll be catching up from the beginning...
This week after all the festivities I plan on reading The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova.

Hi Della!

You mean Lisa Scottoline. I've read all her books! So good.


I finished a short story - A Cat Was Involved: A Chet and Bernie Mystery eShort Story
and just started A Fistful of Collars (Chet and Bernie Series #5) by Spenser Quinn.

The short story was about how Chet came to live with Bernie.

Well, I'm listening to (at work) Why My Third Husband Will be a Dog and I'm reading Killer Smile both by Lisa Caroline. I really enjoy this author.

And, I'm listening to (in my car with my son) The Big 1-0. Its a kids book about a boy turning 10 - its a funny, great book.

I've just finished reading a holocaust title (one of the subjects I read about the most). Gertruda's Oath by Ram Oren. It was an interesting, albeit emotionally challenging, read. I'm picking something a little lighter for my next read.

Oh the Diane Mott Davidson books are good. Have you ever read Joanna Fluke? Those are really interesting too (although I figure I oughta give a warning considering the site: it's bakery set mysteries).

On a completely different type of mystery, I'm reading a couple of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. It's kind of a cross between Harry Potter and Robert Parker shamus style mysteries. Dresden is a private investigator in modern day Chicago...and he happens to be a wizard.

Fat chance by Dr. Robert Lustig.He goes through the science of what causes obesity and the real culprit of the obesity epidemic. it isn't entirely what the authorities want us to believe. I highly recommend it.

I've started reading "Maladaptation", by L. A. Fields.

Overview: Sixteen-year-old Marley Kurtz is an incurable bookworm who is sent to a program for maladapted youth in Loweville, Colorado after his parents discover he has been having an affair with a man forty-three years his senior. Once there, Marley befriends the wry yet optimistic Missy, who is fifteen and pregnant in the lowest town on earth, and falls in love with Jesse, an ice-eyed sociopath with an outlaw for a father and a corpse for a mother. As the stress of the summer causes Marley's physical and mental health to decline, it is unclear which of his new friends has the worst influence on him, or whether the instruction of a small town's Baptist-run therapy group will do more harm than good to everyone involved.

Just finished reading "All is Grace" by Brennan Manning. Also re-read "the Ragamuffin Gospel" also by Manning. I keep going back and reading bits and peices of "An Arrow Pointing to Heaven" by James Bryan Smith, which is about the life if Rich Mullins.

I LOVE reading Amish fiction. I had to take all my books back to the library a couple weeks ago so I wouldnt' be tempted as I studied for finals. My problem is that when I get a good fiction book I can't put it down til I'm done. Even if that means 8 or 10 hours reading for a longer book... =) I guess one could have worse habits, eh? haha. My favorite Amish fiction writers are Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston and Shelley Shepard Gray. (I'm sure I could think of others if I thought long and hard enough.) ;)

Just read all of the House of Night series, waiting for new one
to come out in October.
So I'm currently reading the Atlantis Code by Charles Brokaw.
I highly recommend Waking the Moon by Elizabeth Hand. It's one
of my faves.
I love clue solving, treasure hunting books.
I don't read non fiction or gore.

Breaking Free by Beth Moore

Stephanie

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-3 (ESV)

Sarah's Key

It's 2 in one. One chapter is set back in 1942 and being told by 10 year old Sarah's point of view when being rounded up by the French Police. She wants to protect her brother so hides him in the closet. Next Chapter is 60 years later and is written in the view of an American journalist investigating the roundup.

How about this Sarah, LOL!

I just finished Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen Series #1) and now am going to start Strawberry Shortcake Murder (Hannah Swensen Series #2) by Joanne Fluke.


Lisa - The second part of Kinsey & Me so depressed me I had to put it down for a few weeks before I finished it. I guess it was pretty much autobiographical?


In Bossy Pants I wanted more gossip about Saturday Night Live, but there are a lot of good parts throughout.

Dusty, I finished Kinsey & me and all I can say is WOW! This wasn't what I expected at all I didn't dislike it but I was kind of disappointed if that makes sense.

Also I had purchased Bossypants months ago so I'm going to power through it. emoticon

Exactly! I wasn't expecting or do I like short stories. Let me know when you finish the second part.

Bossy Pants was ok. Nothing great. I was looking for something lighter to read and that was ok. If you can get it on sale that would be good.

Dusty,

So far it really isnt what I thought it was going to be either. I really thought it was going to be a more detailed look at the whole process and background I wasn't expecting short stories. But, I am a Grafton fan from way back so I'm enjoying it. I'm about half way through.

What did you think of bossy pants? I was going to read that next.

Jodi Thomas's latest book in her "HARMONY" series. The Chance on A Lifetime.
I am not usually into romance novels, but I love her writing and the Texas setting of small town Harmony.

Kate

The only place we live is in this moment, right now. The past has been and gone, the future has not yet happened, all that exists is the now. You can glance at the past and the future but keep your eyes trained on the present. It is the cutting edge - We laugh, we love and we learn in this narrow band of time. - Kate Yianakis

I tend to read multiple books at once. Today I'm reading Shiver by Karen Robards.
