I've finished the 2nd Game of Thrones book and decided to do something a little lighter. I've started on the Percy Jackson series. Very much like Harry Potter so far. It's easy reading and I'm enjoying it.

Having a month off from school has provided me with time to read, finally! So far I have read The Revenge if the Radioactive Lady by Elizabeth Stuckey-French, Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich and almost done with Heartburn by Nora Ephron.

I'm about a third of the way through "An Irish Country Doctor" by Patrick Taylor. One of the main characters is...an Irish country doctor...and he's training a newbie from the city. Their interactions are hilarious.

I'm reading Middlesex and parts of A People's History of the United States. Both are excellent so far.

I didn't read it, but the movie was great.

While on vacation, I finished The Round House, read The Girl with the Cat Tattoo (you can skip that--not too good, not too professional) and started The Black Box.

I've read Perks of being a Wallflower. It was a good read.

I've been listening to Lord of the Rings on audiobook. I rewatch the movies and reread the books every year or so. The Hobbit reminded me to do it again. Being a college student I decided to do the audiobook for the first time and I have to say, it's fantastic. I've been using Audible. I think it's $15 every month and you get 1 credit which can go to any book regardless of price, which is cool because the LoTR audiobooks are $26 a piece!

I'm going to reread the Silmarillion as well.

But I have a long list of books I need to read. I'm currently trying to catch up with the author of the Drizzt Do'Urden series. He keeps writing them and I can't keep up! If anyone here likes fantasy that's an amazing series.

I'm also trying to get through some educational/nutritional type books. Sugar Shock and The End of Overeating are the two I'm most focused on.

There's a cool website called Books Should be Free where you can listen to audiobooks free and with no download, in various languages. I believe they are books from the public domain read by volunteers, so some of the quality isn't the best, but some are pretty good.

White Noise, by Don DeLillo - love it so far! I try to read about 1/2 of the books my husband has to read for school so we can chat about them. I'd try to read them all, but they read like 30 novels a semester!
