For some reason, after reading murder mysteries for, oh about 50 years, lol, I have gotten "hooked" on novels involving the ocean - the deep south -- families who live there. I have gone thru all the Dorthea Benton Frank my local library has; recently "discovered" Anne Rivers Seddon, I think is her name (I'm typing at work, so I don't have it close by). I would LOVE hearing the waves and seagulls -- ahh, that would be bliss!

I'm reading a super book called How Children Succeed by Paul Tough. I wasn't expecting to like it so much since I don't have any children to worry about, but it's covering lots of great things about psychology, sociology, and education -- some of them very surprising.

Thanks for starting the thread, Smiling_Sara! It's one of my favorites.

GardenerJoy I have heard that book is awesome!

I just finished A Hundred Summers, and it was great. It was a lovely cap to the end of summer. I am about to pick up The Power of Habit... becuase I have some pretty crappy ones taking control over my life right now!

Only able to squeeze in one book at a time as of late. Started reading Mockingjay, and am dreading the movie. I know I'll be a crying fool.

Still halfway through the fifth book in the, 'A song of Ice and fire' series.

Wish my college books weren't so big!

I just finished A Casual Vacancy (JK Rowling) and haven't decided what to read next. So many books, so little time!

I just finished State of Wonder by Ann Patchett and liked it a lot until about the last 40 pages... Hmmm... Hate when that happens. I'm on the lookout for something new to read while on the treadmill. I'll keep my eyes on this thread for ideas!

alinnell - You must read her new book A Cuckoos Calling. She wrote it under a pseudonym Robert Galbraith. I am hoping she plans to make it a series.

I'm currently reading Single, Sassy and Satisfied.
It's proving to be an amazing book on the biblical view on why it's okay to stop sitting around waiting on someone to complete you, but to live your life on your own and love every minute of it. The rest will take care of itself.
