I'm alternating between, Pride and Prejudice, and The Friday Night Knitting Club (at least I think that's the title, I can't lay my hands on it at the moment to check)

I just finished The School of Essential Ingredients and I thought the author was trying WAY too hard. It is the smushiest, mushiest, prosiest book I have read in a long time. She did get me with one turn of phrase that really stuck to me but wow, it was way over the top in practically every description. It was very "like water for chocolate" - food is magical!

I'm now reading The Last Single Woman in America and so far it's pretty funny.

Shadowmarch by Tad Williams - fantasy, slow start but i'm in the middle now and it's excellent so far. HUGE book though, and there's a second one just as big to read when I'm done.

I just finished "The Time Traveler's Wife" about a week ago. Loved it!!!

Next, I think I might start "No One You Know" by Michelle Richmond (I think that's her name). I read one of her other books "The Year of the Fog" and really liked it a lot, so I hope this one is similar!

I didn't really read much in August, but did manage these two:

Living in a Foreign Language which I read prior go going to Italy. While in Italy I read Virgin Suicides. Now that I'm home I'm reading Middlesex. I'm almost done with the book (starting part 4 today) and am finding it really odd, strange, interesting and compelling all at once.

@alinell - 'Middlesex' is superb! I really loved that one.

I just started "Metropolis," by Elizabeth Gaffney, about turn-of-the-century NYC and Barnum's Circus, and I'm in the middle of "Man's Search for Meaning," by Viktor Frankl, a holocaust survivor. Excellent.

I read 2 books over the weekend:

Hello Goodbye - tearjerker! Hated the daughter, but I must have cried 3 times.

Let the Right One in - got the book after I watched the movie. Really liked it! But I like vampires

I have been traveling a good bit the past month so I have listened to several audio books. All the Janet Evanovich books read by Lorelei King are very entertaining. DH and I get such a laugh from them. We listened to FINGER LICKIN' FIFTEEN and PLUM SPOOKY this weekend. One warning - it does contain adult material. I would not want to listen to this with either my mother or my children.

Tracy - I loved Nora Robert's Blue Dahlia and the other "In the Garden" books.
