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.

Total Eclipse -Rachel Caine it's part of the weather wardens series. I haven't been reading much this summer. I think it's more common in colder months for me.

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. emoticon

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! emoticon . 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.

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

I'm currently reading the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I'm only on book 1. If anyone has heard of the show True Blood on HBO...that show is derived from these books

Don't read it before bed -- you'll be up until 3am reading, haha.


I've just started "Marcelo and the Real World," which is technically a young adult album but hey, I work at a middle school. I've got to keep with the times!

I just started "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy last night. Haven't gotten too far, but it looks good so far. :D

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...

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.
