Some of the best books I've read in the last few years are Stieg Larsson's three books - check them out! I also liked Maeve Binchy's "Italian Teacher" (not sure the title is quite correct)
"I don't know which weapons will be used in the third World war, but in the fourth, it will be sticks and stones" --- Albert Einstein.
I read "The Shell Seekers" - and I watch the PBS series "Doc Martin" which takes place in Cornwall. Randi, I've read a couple of Maeve Binchy's books and really liked them! I read "The Hiding Place" in high school.
When I went to the bookstore to pick up this quality measurement book, they had a table with a sign: Books Everyone Should Read. There were classics on it - The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, Animal Farm, and the diary of Anne Frank. There were also a couple I have not read - "Night" by Elie Wiesel and Khaled Hossaini's (sp?) "One Thousand Splendid Suns"- I think that's the title. My sister-in-law teaches middle school language arts and "Night" is one of the books she has taught. I re-read The Great Gatsby when the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio came out. Didn't get it in high school, didn't get it in college and I still don't completely get it. Will try to get to the library soon. During summer (through September) the library is open Sundays from 11 AM until 3:30 PM- wish they would do it all year round!
I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!
Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
"That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas
"We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays." -- Persius, first century Roman poet

Just finished 12 Years a Slave -excellent.
I am back and forth reading "Bleating Hearts: The Hidden World of Animal Suffering" and also "A Street Cat Named Bob". When Bleating Hearts brings me to tears I read some of Bob to cheer me up.

Just finished "Perfect" by Don Larsen. His account of the Perfect Game he pitched in the 1956 World Series. I saw that game on TV, and have read another book about it. This was really interesting - he went inning by inning and he's finally realizing what is going on - only no one will talk to him about it.
Now I'm reading another sports book - about the history of the NHL.
