Fun enough I have been reading a book on each kind of diet that is out there. So far I have read 10 different ones in the last few weeks. I live with a trainer that is working on an internet business and I am helping him do research for it. It has been very interesting to see all the different views. For fun I read books by Jody Piocult.
I have been attempting to finish Stephanie Myers' "Breaking Dawn" since January. It's not because i dont like the book, it because i get so absorbed in it that everytime i start to read it, i cant put it down and then i never have time to pick it back up again... But I love her work, and the Twilight Saga.. I am a sucker for vampires.. No pun intended there.
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly.
I'm about half-way through Julia Child's "my Life in Paris". After having seen "Julie and Julia" twice, I figured I really ought to read the book the film was based on! Thankfully, I only pick it up at bedtime. It would be extremely difficult to read about all these wonderful buttery dishes she cooked at le Cordon Bleu if you were reading while hungry!
Loved the Mystical Christ, and found that so much of it is true, and the Catholic Church tried to hide a large part of it. (Not intending to ruffle any feathers here.) Right now I'm reading Nora Robert's Blow out. I'm also reading The Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy. It's from the author of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe.

Hi there! I just finished Margaret Atwood's "The Year of the Flood". It was so engrossing I had to finish it in one day, so I blew my "8 hrs. of sleep" goal last night! . I love Atwoods' writing especially "The Handmaid's Tale". It's actually kind of a similar dystopian fantasy (I hope!) Instead of the Christian Right taking control of the state ( in THT), it's Big Brother Corporations. Chilling with occasional humorous moments.
Also recently read Dan Brown's latest "The Lost Symbol". Picking on the Freemasons this time. Do Neotics really exist as a branch of science? Must attend another Google University class to find out.
Has anyone read Jodi Picoult's latest novel? We just got it in at the library, so I'm curious to hear what you think of it.

I just started "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy last night. Haven't gotten too far, but it looks good so far. :D
"Everything changed the day I understood that if I was to become a runner, I would have to run with the body I had." - john bingham
"My favorite run anywhere in the world? I recall when I lived on a small island in Greece. Because I was the only jogger on that island there was inevitably someone who would call out, saying "Why are you running?", "Isn't that bad for your heath?" or "Don't you want to stop for a shot of Ouzo?" It was quite amusing." -haruki murakami
Hi Folks - I'm new to the discussions here, and I love to read, so thought I'd jump right in. I recently discovered an author I love - Nancy E Turner. I read her second book, Sarah's Quilt, which was actually a sequel to the one I'm reading now - These Is My Words. Has anyone else read her books?

I just finished White Teeth by Zadie Smith (very interesting read!) as well as The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down (about a Hmong family and their encounters with western medicine when their little girl gets sick). Also good!
Need to pick up something new soon...
"I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is'."
Right now I'm in the middle of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which is quite enjoyable so far. I just finished "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy which was PHENOMENAL (but emotionally a tough read) and "The Book Theif" (blanking on the author), which is beautiful written and a fantastic read for any audience.
"If you don't take care of your body, where will you live?"
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everybody would do it. It's the hard that makes it great."
I like Silvia Browne books,what did you think of the Mysical Christ?I also like some of Ann Rices books,especially The Witching Hour,thats my favorite.Im still reading Catherine Coulters Beyond Eden,its an excellent book.
Well it turns out I didnt much care for Kathy Reichs books all that much.I read about three quaters of"Bare Bones",but thats only becouse I kept forcing my self to finish it,but I just couldnt do it.Now Im reading"Beyond Eden"by Catherine Coulter.Shes one of my favorite Authors.
