  • I have been on a Dean Koontz kick lately, so I am reading his "By the Light of the Moon".



    It's been on my pile of reading material so long, I can't even remember when I bought it, and I am finally to it. It is the last one in my pile, so I need to find some new ones to read soon.

  • I am in between books, but I just finished one called The Falcon Bride. Before that, I read Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. I also have a stack of books so big by my bed that I put my alarm clock on it, LOL.



    I have to admit: I read a lot of "crap." I have a justification though (of course!). I have a Master's Degree in English. So, obviously, I know HOW to read better books. But I also tend to have strong empathic reactions to books, so if I read serious fiction, I tend to get a little depressed. So, I try to read "light" stuff that may be fluff and have one plot again and again, but it amuses me and helps me relax.



    So, I read historical romances, mysteries, with "real" books in between.



    I am also very fond of vampires...

  • I'm reading The Kite Runner for my off-line book club. I need to finish it before next Friday's meeting, so hopefully I'll get a big block of uninterrupted reading time this weekend. It's good so far, but my book-reading time has dropped recently due to more blog-reading (and writing) - oh, and work time and family time too.



    Kim, what do you think of Wicked? My book club read it a couple of years ago, and most of them hated it. I thought it was OK but not quite what I expected. Interestingly, the club member who disliked the book the most saw the musical based on it a couple of months ago and loved that.

  • My best friend from college loves Wicked. She and her kids made their entire Christmas and birthday presents one year a trip to NYC to see it.



    I have The Kite Rujavascriptaste_strinL(selektion,3,'','','';)

    on my shelf (unread) and I want to read it so I can justify getting A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same writer!



    Has anybody read The Memory Keeper's Daughter?

  • Jen - I love that you justify your crap reading - I do the same thing ;)



    So - I am currently reading a fine piece of literature called "Size 14 is Not Fat Either" by Meg Cabot. When my work or home life hits a certain level of stress or if I am on vacation these are the only kinds of books I can read. Anything too heavy would only get chucked into the bonfire.

  • I loved The Kite Runner but haven't gotten to A Thousand Secret Suns yet. And I did read The Memory Keeper's Daughter, Jen. I thought it was pretty good.

  • Oh, and I thought Wicked (the book - wasn't able to snag tix for the musical but would have LOVED to) was awesome. Haven't been able to get into the sequel book, however...

  • I was just given a book to read called The ParentPreneur Edge. It's supposed to focus on our traits as parents that can help make us successful managers and business owners. It should be interesting.
