I read the Hunger Games. I was happy to finish it but now I don't remember a thing about it. I have read the Scarlet Letter several times and will probably read it again. Currently I am reading Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf and not enjoying it as much as I did A Room of One's Own. On my Kindle I am reading Don Quixote: I have also started a number of "fitness books"on the Kindle.

Someone once commented that I liked reading better than I did eating. Not true I do both at the same time, a bad habit perhaps but one I am not willing to give up right now especially as I seem to have found my "goove" and have lost a pound now and then or at least maintained my weight. Starting weight on April 1, 212 163.5 Current weight 148.0.

I find this a hard question, seriously. I just finished reading Star Wars: The Fate of the Jedi series. My son got me into them. I have a Kindle that I absolutely love but I find I end up having four different books going at the same time.

After finishing the Game of Throne Series (and waiting for book 6), I wanted to sink myself into another big series... so I'm reading the Sherlock Holmes Adventures. I had never read these in school so after seeing the recent BBC version, I have someone fun to imagine as the character.

My Ticker is reflective of Halloween. I should reach my goal by Halloween 2013. (crossing fingers)

Last night I read The Great Gatsby again. I forgot what a great book this is! It is a short book so it was an easy read.

After reading book reviews in the other thread, I just downloaded Abraham Lincoln the Vampire Hunter. Someone stated that it was though provoking so I thought I would give it a try.

I am loving this so far. It's about a man's year long attempt at baking the perfect loaf of bread. Along the way he shares stories about nutrients, diseases, bakers, and society in general. Fascinating.
