Just finished The Terrorist Next Door and I highly recommend it. The author footnotes his resources. A lot of the information I already knew, but the connections and betrayal regarding specific people and their terrorist connections I had NOT known.

Hi HTHOMAS,
I've read two books by Nicholas Sparks. The Notebook, which I adored. The other one I'd have to look up, but I didn't like it and never read any of his other books.

Recently finished The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen which was a cute book.

I thought I'd start a new thread on books for us parents that enjoy reading. (when we find the time?) LOL

I started a new book thinking the author was a woman, but no, it starts off with a very opinionated/narrow minded man who only loves modern literature that, as he says later, hits him over the head with their points. He is forced to read Emma in school and he finds it all trivial until he's hit over the head with his similarities to Emma. LOL Then he starts to realize how wonderfully Jane Austin wrote and that she didn't need the in your face plots, or smut, or big adventure to capture the readers. I'm not very far into this book, but the title is:

A Jane Austen Education: How six novels taught me about love, friendship, and the things that really matter. =)
