I'm always reading several at once. I put the Outlander series on my wishlist on my nook. Have heard a lot about it and will have to try it. I swear there is not enough time in the day to read. I have over 100 books on my wishlist and i have a few already downloaded and a whole stack of paper books...if I could sit all day and just read I'd be a very happy girl lol

Reading Lie with Me - Stephanie Tyler, I Beat the Odds - Michael Oher, From This Moment On - Bella Andre, and The Vow by Kim & Krickitt Carpenter. Sounds funny but what I'm in the mood for tends to change, hence why I have so many books going at once

I have started reading miss invisible by Laura Jensen walker. About a plus size girl falling in love. Only 22 pages in and I'm enjoying it.

I'm reading "My Life as I See IT" written by my dad. He only made 50 copies but am so honored to have his book and have that special insight into his life as a rural farmer and then a pioneer of Alaska. We all have our story and his was amazing.

I just finished 'The Name of the Star' by Maureen Johnson and 'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green. Both were amazing reads for different reasons. Now I'm on the hunt for something new but so far nothing has really caught my eye. Hmm...

I've read the Outlander series and it is definitely good... I found it a bit slow in the middle... but I've found that to be pretty typical of book series that have more than 4 books.

I just recently read 'The sisters brothers" - it was different and I really enjoyed it

NurtureShock, by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. Interesting data summaries that debunk some of the common ideas about what kids need. It was recommended by DS12's headmistress. The first 3 chapters (praise, sleep, and race relations) have been very enlightening!

the 7 books of the outlander series add up to about 8000 pages (in paper back). if you only have time to read a little at a time, they would keep you occupied for a while. i work from home, when there's work to do, but most of the time is free time. my husband looked at them and said "that'll keep you entertained for a couple weeks" heh.

i'm such a nerd. i'm looking at the first book all eager to open it up and get started... but i also love that anticipation before starting a new book, especially the first book in a series. i almost cried when i read the last book in stephen king's 'dark tower' series, because i wanted to keep reading about the characters!

I just finished Death Comes to Pemberly and it absolutely sucked. I'm now reading Jane Lynch's Happy Accidents and I'm enjoying it.
