    Never hurts to check out our friends' bookshelves for ideas for our own reading.

    I am reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski.

    It was a bit scattered in the first 50 pages, but improved after that. I'm only 160 pages in, but I'm having one challenge in that I can't figure out how old he is during the early part of the story (like when they see the stray or he helps deliver the puppies.)

    1632 by Eric Flint - a sci-fi alternate universe

    also - the latest Diana Galbadon on my Kindle along with War and Peace and the Bible.

    I'm a somewhat eclectic reader:)

    I rarely read fiction and usually have a few books going at one time. I just finished "How God Wants Us to Worship Him" and am almost done with "Why We're Not Emergent". My book club starts Sarah Palin's book next week so I'll be doing that with them over the next few months. I have "48 Days to the Work You Love" waiting on me, too.

    I am currently reading Debbie Macomber's 92 Pacific Boulevard, the 9th in her Cedar Cove series and "The Time of My Life" by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi.

    Waiting for "29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving can Change Your Life" by Cami Walker from the library...should be her within the week.

    Canadian Jingles do you like that book? I know the reviews were good... but I just couldn't finish it.

    I finished reading 'Germs' by Robert liparulo yesterday - bioterrorism thriller.

    I struggled through the first 50 pages. I thought it skipped around onto side stories too much and a lot of stuff that didn't seem relevant like the history of the farm. I'm at the part where his father has died. It's a little slow right now, but not bad.

    Any idea how many pages into it you got?

    I must've read around 100 pages... then I gave back to its owner (she didn't read it either).

    Oh, and for those who haven't heard of it, Goodreads.com is a great place to read and write reviews and see ratings for those you are interested in.

    Right now I am reading the 1st book in the Mitford series: A Home in Mitford.
    It is very sweet.

    Plus trying to catch up with all my magazine reading! You think having 6.5 weeks off I would have gone through a lot of magazines but alas, I did not.

    In Nov of last year I was looking for something to read at the library. A book (Dark Lover) actually fell off the shelf in front of me so I figured I should read it. I was hooked. Now I am not a vampire fan, a romance fan or a fan of happy ever after stories. I am picky and want a good story line. JR Ward wrote the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and they have really caught a lot of fans. Some people are using them to spice up their relationships and others are looking for a 'brother' for themselves. (warning, adult reading material)

    The Outlander series I read last year. I ordered them from the library and read the whole series one right after the other. Love them because they have a great story line wrapped around the characters. A friend and I have been reading these books since the first book came out in the early 90s. I have never been able to get into the Lord John books.

    Happy Reading

    Right now I am reading The Queen Mother, The Official Biography which DH gave me for Christmas. It's quite a big book, as can be imagined, but very absorbing. It's rich with history but also very personal. I even shed a few tears last night when I came to the part where they found that her husband King George had died in his sleep. That's pretty rare for me, especially in a non-fiction book.

    I just finished "Pirate Latitudes" by Michael Crichton - supposedly a finished book found after his death. It was OK - not nearly as good as his usual stuff.

    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 was totally spoiled this year and got a Kindle for Christmas - I love it!!! I think DH just wanted to get rid of the stacks of books in our family room! LOL!

    Colleen in Pa - I like the Michael Chrichton books too (... didn't know he died though). Ahorsesoul that dark lover book looks good too.
