I miss our reading list thread. Thought I'd start a new one. A few of the great books I've read lately were weekend books. You know, not very long, kinda big print, those ones that used to be on the best seller list but you found them in the clearance section?
The Dogs of Babel (Carolyn Parkhurst) - just a touching story about dealing with grief. I just loved this book.
The Family Tree (Carole Cadwalladr) - funny and enlightening story about trying not to turn into your mother.
also read a flop. It's a well celebrated sci-fi book. Though I'm not sure why it's sci-fi OR celebrated, to be quite honest. Dhalgren (Samuel R Delany) has incited in me ire like that I haven't seen since 11th grade English Class (the scarlet letter). I got to the last chapter and just threw it down and walked away. I just hated this book so much words can't even describe it.
Right now I'm working on Raymond Feist's Riftwar Saga, the first book Magician: Apprentice. So far I am really enjoying it.
What's everyone else reading?
