    What Book Are You Reading?

    I know this has been done, but I thought I would start it back up again.

    I love to read. Mostly fiction so I can escape a little bit. I seem to go in phases though. I'll read like crazy and then I won't read anything for some time.

    I just started "The Lake House" by James Patterson. I got this book from Amy or Staci at one of the pet talk meetings. Thanks guys! Its pretty good so far and has me hooked right from the beginning. I recommend that you read "When The Wind Blows" first. Good Book. I'm getting ready to curl up on the couch and read and thats what made me think of the question.

    I think the last book that I read was "Faking It" by Jennifer Cruisie. Good easy read that made me smile. This is the first book by this author that I have read. It turns out that she lives in Columbus, Ohio. Not too far from where I live. The book was based around that area and there where alot of references to places that I knew. I loved that!

    So, what book are you reading? Also, what books do you recommend?

    I read everything by Dennis LeHane and think he is terrific. Saw the movie "Mystic River" and am waiting for the movie version of "Shutter Island" which is, IMO, his BEST novel!

    I also ready EVERYTHING by Patricia Cornwell, Robin Cook, Mary Higgins Clark and Karin Slaughter

    Last book I read was "Stone Monkey" by Jeffery Deaver (also love the Lincoln Rhyme series by Deaver and this is one of them)

    I love to read too.

    Right now im reading for the 2nd time is "The Outsiders". We read it in school, and Im just hooked on this book! Its really great. It's really sad in some parts, and funny in some. I also saw the movie at school, and now Im hunting every movie store to find it.

    I just finished one that was really good called "cold Fet" I can;t find the bok right now, but will so that I can tell you who wrote it! It was a murder mystery (just about all I read) and was very exciting. For once I didn't guess who dunnit!

    The Lake House... is the the sequel to the one about the bird-girl? I liked the first one, though hubby laughed at me the whole time I read it telling me it was such a stupid concept.

    My driving manual.

    I'm also reading "The Ultimate Guide to Dog Training" as well as "A Walk To Remember". Both are great books!

    "When the Wind Blows" is one of my favorites. Thats why one of my cockatiels is named max. "The lake house" is good to. One day I will have birds named Peter, Wendy, Matthew, Ozamadias (sp), and Icarias (sp).

    I'm reading "Circus Fire" by Stewart O'Nan. It's an accounting of the 1944 Hartford Circus Fire. I started reading it on the plane on my way to CT last night. VERY interesting!!! Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus has had MORE fires where MANY animals perished before 1944. I can't put it down!!

    I LOVE to read. I'm averaging a book a week right now, but that will change soon when school starts.

    I'm currently reading Marian Keyes' Rachel's Holidday. Its my third book by her and I love her writing. Its totally girl reading...not too intense, funny and totally real! I love it!

    I'm half way into the last book in the "Left Behind" series and I hate it! I read the first ten and this one is really not good.

    My friend is reading The DaVinci Code, it sounds really good...

    Everyone's books sound interesting. I'll have to check some of them out.

    Except for yours, Kay Ann! Those novels you read....very boring!
