ohhhh. I love Jodi Picoult's books. I have one of her books waiting for me, I can't remember which one, but, I'm still working my way through Dune. I'm not usually a Sci Fi reader so I'm reading it slower than I normally would.

I am working on Wicked the Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. (trying it again.) If i put a book done too long i have to start a different one then go back to it.

Currently, I am reading "Toepicks, Cadaver Dogs, and Sports with No Balls" by Sherry Bosley. I am loving it....it is pretty much her thoughts on being a mom, her daughter's skating career, and other things in life. It's a quick read, but very amusing!!!

Next I plan on either reading "Book Club Selection" by Kathy Griffin or "19 Minutes" by Jodi Piccoult since I have been saying that I will read that book for years now! haha

I just started the Sookie Stackhouse series.

Right now I'm reading Dead until Dark. I'm almost halfway through it. It's pretty good so far even though I'm not fond of first person

I'm on the last two chapters of The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. It was an okay book. Next up, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

I just finished Replay, which is all about what you would do if you had to live your life over again (very cool) and now, I've just started Outliers, which is about success and the fact that it's not what it appears...only in the beginning of it, but so far so interesting! :)

I am desperate for a good novel. Haven't read one in ages.

Picoult's 19min is a great book.

Hmmm, maybe it is not a novel I am looking for.
I have a course in CA which means I am traveling (long flights) and hoteling all alone for 4 days and nights. I NEED BOOKS!!! Recommendations greatly appreciated. :)

Now is Replay the kind of book that will cause regret? Not looking for that.

Has anyone read The Great World Spin (http://www.amazon.com/Let-Great-World-Spin-Novel/dp/1400063736/ref=wl_itt_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1DTA5VIE2JNWP&colid=325H10B1UAA1X) by Colm McCann? If so, what did you think of it? I just put it on my Christmas wish list based on a review by Frank McCourt.

I finished The Christmas Pearl (is it a novel with recipes, or a cookbook with a story? Half the book is recipes: Southern recipes, probably not very diet-friendly!) and started reading To All a Good Night (a collection of 3 contemporary romances) but don't know if that kind of sexy fare is really up my alley: so I stocked up on Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb (darn it, now Dusty Springfield's ghost moves into my brain cells and starts singing the same-named song) and 3 Xmas-themed cozy thrillers. Also gotta save room for the next Mary & Carol Higgins Clark holiday story (getting to be an annual habit) and something grittier, maybe go back to Hush, It's a Game or Slay Ride

I am in the middle of Perfect Life by: Jessica Shattuck. Like the storyline, but some parts seem to drag. Those I just skim over though.

juggling three books right now! A collection of HP Lovecraft stories - very good! and some Robert Jordan prequel hubby insists that I read... but then I was at the bookstore the other day and surprise!! one of my favorite authors has a book out. So I dropped everything for Juliette Marrilier's Hearts Blood. So far, so good!

I'm currently catching up on my three magazine subscriptions since I'm WAY behind!

I recently finished The Host by Stephanie Myers. It was phenomenal. I am a big Twilight fan as well and in my opinion The Host is even better...brilliant. I hope she plans a sequal to it.

I'm reading The Other Eden by Sarah Bryant. I'm usually more of an urban fantasy romance type... but I do have to say so far the tone and air of this has a bit of a supernatural feel to it. Though I suspect it will have a normal ending.

My next book planned is Sleeping with the Fishes by MaryJanice Davidson. Something nice and light to get my mind off things.

Omg..I LOVED Sleeping With The Fishes!!! I love the Queen Betsy books too!!

Jodi Picoult's "Harvesting the Heart" is a difficult read. It made me really upset. I didn't even finish it.

"songs of the humpback whale", also by her is AMAZING.

currently...im reading textbooks for class O_o
