I've been reading mostly easy reads lately. A lot of chic lit. My brain just can't handle some of the non-fiction books that I have that I am dying to read.

Since Jan. 1 I've read

Demon Ex Machina by Julie Kenner

Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabbot

Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabbot

32AA by Michelle Cunnah

The First Assistant by Clare Naylor and Mimi Hare

Currently reading The Maque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig

All have been pretty light and quick reads. The one I'm currently reading will be the "hardest" read out of my list. I read the first book in this series and loved it (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation) so I now have the 2nd and 3rd to read.

I promised myself that my next book will be a non-fiction book. I need to get some of them read so I can pass them on.

So what are you reading right now?

I have been mowing through the books. Currently, though I am reading two:

Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind


The Grapes of Wrath.

I read books one at a time...

Read the Fever books (four of those) in January.

Am reading Greywalker right now. Having a hard time getting into this book.

Think I might read The Road next.

Just finished "In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man" by Michelle Hammond, and am now reading "Wild at Heart-discovering the secrets of a man's soul" by John Eldredge

Trying to figure out how to be a real man again I guess.

I just started "Wild at Heart" and I am really liking it. Would recommend it to most men that have been put through the ringer by their WW's.

The Good Girl's Guide to Bad Girl Sex by Barbara Keesling

rt...I loved the Zookeepers Wife. Wonderful book. I got to meet the author at the National Book Festival a few years ago.

Currently reading an autobiography of a politician (better not say more than that becasue of guidelines).

I have also just bought Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson to read next.

really trying posted 2/3/2010 13:54 PM

cant-I'm page 54 ONLY! Did it take you a while to get into it or am I just slow. Okay, don't answer that last part.

I read Picking Cotton if anyone wants to borrow it.

I love mystery/crime novels.

I just finished John Grisham's The Innocent Man his first nonfiction work and I am currently reading J is for Judgment by Sue Grafton. I love both of these authors.

I just finished "The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon" by David Grann. Great read.

Next on the list is "The Book of Ruth" for my book club.

Do you read Ann Rule? Her books are excellent.

My dad prosecuted murder cases for years (now retired) and had never read her. Needless to say, he wore out my reading chair on his last visit reading as much Ann Rule as possible. The cat was in heaven--my dad let him sit in his lap the whole time.

I'm halfway through The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Think I might read The Road next.
@Punky -- I think I've said this elsewhere, but The Road is great! It's the only book I've ever read in one entire sitting (it took me 3 1/2 hours start to finish).

SoHappyNow posted 2/3/2010 17:43 PM

I mostly read fiction.....right now, it's
Double Cross by James Patterson, The Wheel of Darkness by Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child, and The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory

neh...I loved Three Cups of Tea. I want to read his new book. But I have to finish my huge pile of books first.

rt...It was a bit hard to get into, but it is a really good book. I loved it! I had it for awhile and I read it after I went to the Holocaust Museum. I think the two combined made for a bit quicker read.

Don Quixote. I believe in torture by literature.

Just finished The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood. Excellant. Next up: re-read The Madonnas of Lenningrad. On wait list from library for The Help (23 ahead of me!)
