I just finished The Host by Stephanie Meyer. She wrote the twilight series and that is her first book for adults. It was really good.

Colleen, I'm totally jealous of you getting the Kindel! I'm trying to save up for one myself. :)

Colleen in Pa - Ahorsesoul that dark lover book looks good too.
Do read the series. It is better than Twilight. I think Showtime should make them into a series for TV.

I´ll never get enough of Christmas :)
Still reading the Christmas Cookie Club from Ann Pearlman
I finished this book a week before Christmas. I wanted to try some of the recipes but was too busy.

Now I'm reading Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde...I loved his Thursday Next series (alternate literary universe, a bit "out there") We'll see if this lives up to that.
I am also reading Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow...about two infamous hermit brothers on Fifth Ave...another odd one, but interesting so far (100 pages in)
I'm going to see if my library has either of these.
Update: Have one of the Thursday Next series and H&L on order at my library!

Right now I am reading The Queen Mother, The Official Biography
Now sure I would enjoy this. I'm still upset that Lady Di didn't get to be Queen!!!!

LadyEvenstar - P&P is one of my all time faves...please let me know how you like this one...I may have to put it on my list! The Kindle was a complete surprise...DH and my mom conspired together! Keep in mind what you will save on books...new hardcovers go for $9.99-$12.99. Many older novels can be found for as little as $0.99! Several are FREE!

Ahorsesoul - Try to start with The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel, Jasper Fforde (it's the first in the series and sets up the "alternate" universe, circa 1985 UK). There are lots of inside literary jokes - imagine a world in which someone can steal a character out of a book or rewrite a novel's ending and change history...I thought it was hilarious and have enjoyed the entire series. Fforde's Mystery Crimes series was not as entertaining IMO.

Happy Reading!

Kindle is great - I can't tell you how many big fat books I'm carrying around in very little space.

Also finished 1632 and on to `1633.

Foxpaw, how are you liking 92 Pacific Boulevard? I really like the entire Cedar Cove series and I'm anxiously waiting for book 10!! Have you seen the cookbook that goes along with the series? That's on my wish list!

Right now i'm reading The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz.

For those that have read The Christmas Cookie Club, is it good? I've been wanting to read it but of course our library doesn't have it so I would have to buy it. Just wondering if it's worth it.

I just finished "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" (Wroblewski) and thought the ending was rather flat and disappointing. Now I'm reading "The Bourne Identity" (Ludlum); I loved the movie and the book is pretty good so far. :)

Fluttering happily in the clouds!!
"The Bankers" by Shane Ross. Sorry, I can be an economics nerd at times (cos the other book I am going through when I have a few minutes is "Who really runs Ireland?" by Matt Cooper).

angel-love...I really liked "92 Pacific Boulevard". It is based around the Sheriff of Cedar Cove. I love this series...it is seems so real. I went to Debbie Macomber's website and was even able to download a copy of the map of the fictitious Cedar Cove, that is kind of fun.

I have seen the cookbook and it looks very good. WE are on a rather strick diet so I am not tempting myself with receipes that I cannot or rather should not use...LOL

sorry this has taken me so long to answer...I have been MIA for a while here...hope you enjoy the book...

Not too long ago, I saw the most beautiful Owl in our Old FL Oak tree in our front yard. Then, I stumbled across the book "Wesley the Owl". The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and his Girl. By Stacey O'Brien. It's a true story and so interesting. I now have this infatuation with Owl's.

Reccommended Read!

I have just started reading 16 Lighthouse Road. I also just adore Debbie Macomber. The Library just called and The Christmas Cookie Club that I had on hold is in, so will need to get it this week-end.
