I'm reading You Suck by Christopher Moore but I've just realized it's a sequel to a book I read a LONG time ago so I'm going to leave off with this one and pick it up after I re-read the first one.

I'm also the last person to get around to reading Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julia Powell. I'm sorry I waited to so long.

Out of Africa - Isak Dinesen - I've only ever seen the movie.

The Friday Night Knitting Club - Kate Jacobs

Bitter is the New Black - Jen Lancaster

And I'd like to get my hands on a copy of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Still reading The City & The City, but I only have my e-book on loan from the library for another day, so I'm going to have to finish the last 100 pages today. Next in store is Dark Places, and I have a couple "real" paperbacks to read once I'm done those two.


Doing this one day at a time.

I am working on Codependent No More by Melody Beattie - might have to read this one twice - I think up next is the last Twilight Book (again). I would also like to finally read The End of Overeating - it's been sitting around for month!

Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels. I saw this on the thread about weightloss fiction. I'm about halfway through. I wish she had fleshed out the characters a bit more, they seem a tad cardboard, I don't get a good sense of them; they are just there.
