The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo -- Stieg Larsson

You never know what you're getting into for reading. I know a lot of people were reading it; but I must tell you I just came across a really graphic sex part so you will probably want to consider this if your interested in it. It has 800+ pages and other than the above mentioned has kept my attention.

I have several reads going........ which is new for me. I'm usually a one-book-at-a-time, otherwise I get confused....LOL.... I made a 2011 commitment to read a little more non-fiction and perhaps self-help, which I gave up a long time ago........

Non-Fiction = The Mindful Way Through Depression
Knit Together - Debbie Macomber - started last night

Fiction - Wicked Prey, John Sandford - I fall alseep when I try to start this, so I have no idea what it's about yet... though I've read the first chapter.. LOL

Yes, I'm a Jane Austen fan too. Especially if Colin Firth is playing Mr. Darcy on the dvd!

Aria - I got a copy of When Food is Food and Love is Love at my library. It's a set of CD's so it's more expensive to buy than just a book. (I checked at Amazon). But it is so helpful because it has application exercises to work on. Let me know it you can borrow a copy so you can see if it's something you would be interested in. Okay?

wow, Linda -- I picked it up about 3 yrs ago, and read that one... It took me a while to get into it, but i agree, it is very controversial back then... and I do agree, it has "calmed down" these days. Just so you know, if you want it "read to you" while you are reading... or such there is voice recordings available free @ www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page

I started reading Jane Eyre yesterday. It's a little hard reading, but I'm already into it. It's ironic that when it came out in the 1800s, it was considered very controversial. The author, in her preface to the second edition, mentions "the timorous or carping few who doubt the tendency of such books as "Jane Eyre" in whose eyes whatever is unusual is wrong; whose ears detect in each protest against bigotry--that parent of crimem--an insult to piety, that regent of God on earth." Nowadays, Jane Eyre doesn't seem controversial at all, but back then it was very startling to a lot of people.

FINALLY finished "Under the Dome" on my Nook. Oh my gosh that thing was so long it took me 6 MONTHS to finish it!!!

For fiction right now I am reading "Soul Identity" by Dennis Batchelder on my Nook (I read it while I bike and treadmill) and I will be starting "Heaven is For Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back" by Todd Burpo for the Be Your Best Book Club's March read sometime this weekend, I hope :)

I read the 'Left Behind' series back when he wasn't quite finished writing them and I'm not sure I finished the last book or two. I don't really remember much about them now though so I'd have to start over again at the beginning but I wouldn't mind reading them all again :)

I have made a 2011 commitment to read more non-fiction. I started with several on Buddhism, Happiness and Positive Thought. However, I'm a huge mystery fan and have finally succumbed...........so I haven't read Grisham in a long long time.........

The Broker - John Grisham.

I wanted to read The Penny, Joyce Meyer with this team this month. I ordered it from Paperbackswap.com at the end of January - and there is some glitch.. I haven't received it yet.(this has happened before). I'm not convinced I will get that package, so now there's not much time left in Feb. I will look for the March read.

I finished 'Have a New Kid by Friday' and also Whoopi Goldberg's "Is It Just Me or Is It Nuts Out There?" Pretty good books :)
Checked out several books from the library that I'd like to work on now ...
'Happiness Now' by Robert Holden
'Happy for No Reason' by Marci Shimoff
and
'Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting' by Lynn Grabhorn

Wandered into that aisle of the library and these books caught my eye :)

I'm reading Charlotte Collins - a Continuation of Pride and Prejudice by Jennifer Becton. It tells the story of Charlotte's life after P&P, beginning with Mr. Collins' funeral. It's really good, and shows how women, even of the higher classes at that time, were almost slaves to men. I liked Charlotte in P&P and understood why she chose to marry Mr. Collins, but I like her even more in this book as she finds herself, and her True Love.

I am reading a book I got at the church rummage sale last August. It is called, "Oh my Stars" by Lorna Landvik. It takes place during the depression. A young girl loses an arm working in a factory. Sometimes you can guess where a story is going to go, but with this story, I have no idea. I am enjoying reading it.

I finished reading 'The Penny' by Joyce Meyer ... an EXCELLENT book, btw, if any of you would like to read it for Laugh-A-Lot's Be Your Best Book Club book to read and discuss this month :)

Will be starting 'Have a New Kid by Friday' this weekend ... I need some help for Her Royal Highness, Miss Katelyn, lol!

Stepping outside of "my box" and am reading: - Discover the Power Within You - Eric Butterworth.

I mostly read mass market fiction, crime, mystery..... but am trying something different for 2011. My last read was: The Art of Happiness - Dahli Lama

I've ordered The Penny for this month's read, but it hasn't come yet. I have TONS of Joyce Meyer books, but did not have that one............. Hope it gets here soon!

I spent yesterday and today reading Dean Koontz's 'What the Night Knows' :)
Will be starting on Joyce Meyer's 'The Penny' for the Be Your Best Book Club on this team once I catch up on the housecleaning that was neglected for the aforementioned two days of reading :P

That is a favorite of my daughters.

Only got three chapters read yesterday. I took it to the hospital, but was too hard to read with all the people coming in and out.

I'm reading *Uncommon Gratitude* by Joan Chittister and Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Canterbury) It's a small book but filled to the brim with wisdom. You can read it many times and still find something more.

I am currently reading, and about to finish :), Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic. It is an awesomely inspiring book about a guy who was born without arms or legs and how his faith has brought him to rise above his limits to lead a happy and full life. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anybody! LOVE it :)
He also has some videos on YouTube that are really inspiring and worth the time it takes to watch them :)

I absolutely LOVE to read whenever I get a chance, which isn't as often as I'd like unfortunately, and I always like to hear about what other people are reading too :)
I thought it would be kind of fun to have a thread on here where we can share what we're currently reading. Or we could post when we finish a book with a short summary (can be VERY short if you want) and what we thought of it.
I'm always looking for new books or authors to give a shot and it's just kind of interesting to see what else is out there :)
