I just finished reading The Body Book by Cameron Diaz, and it was absolutely wonderful! I'm also deep in the middle of a young adult series that has me completely hooked, The Hayle Coven Series by Patti Larsen. Oh, and I just started reading 100 Days of Real Food, as well.

i just read fortune cookie principle be bernadette jiwa - it is about brand business building-i thought it had a lot of good points and interesting facts.
after that i read a cold and broken hallelujah by tyler dilts a crime novel it was ok, kept by attention but did not have a problem putting it down.
then read supreme justice by max allan collins also a crime novel but this one i read straight thru-could not put it down.
I am almost finished with Atopia by matthew mather it is a futuristic novel about well, futuristic mind stuff-it is interesting but jumpy. Heck I would like to just try the occulus rift, never mind some of the stuff they have in this book lol

I love using Paperbackswap, so many good books and all you pay is postage when someone wants one of your books. It works great for me since a lot of the books I read, I only read once. :)

I ordered a kindle for grandson and loaded it with books, a lot of classics are free and I decided to read some of them as well so I am currently reading Swiss Family Robinson. I had realized that although that was my favorite attraction at Disney World, I had never read the book. I am really enjoying it and now I can discuss with my grandson when we finish...

It was really neat Dusty, Lori told stories answered questions and it was just a little get together. I had never been to one either and really wasn't sure what to expect. I actually just thought she was going to sign the books and be done but we were there for 2 hours just chatting with her.

I just finished Forever Princess, it's the 10th book (I didn't know it was the 10th) in the Princess Diaries series. Who knew there were so many?!

We had some authors at the women's conference a couple of years ago, they did some book signings the women went bananas over it! :)

Lauri, I just finished reading it, and it's good. But all of the Outlander books have been good.


Right now I'm reading Stephen King's Under the Dome.

I am currently reading Diana Gabaldon's newest release "Written In My Own Heart's Blood"
I've been waiting years for this book to come out. It is the next installment in the Outlander series. I'm not very far into it, but it is good so far.

Hugs, Lauri

I've read all of Jen Lancaster's books. So funny. Although the last one, "The Tao of Martha", I didn't think was that good.

I go through phases with reading, leading up to the conference I was interning for I had zero time to read afterwards I read the entire Vampire Academy series in 2 days lol.
I've been reading a lot of Jen Lancaster, Meg Cabot, probably too much chick lit for my own good lol.

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.

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. . ."

Teresa - I loved the first several Kay Scarpetta books. The last few not so much. I might check out #17.

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.

Oh Twissy, you're going to love the Book of Negroes. It's one of my all time favs. I just finished Tish Cohen's new book "The Search Angel". I loved it. It deals with the subject of adoptions wonderfully.

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.
