Question Of The Day - Wednesday, September 23rd!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Good morning! It looks like it's going to be an unusual weather day for late September....hot and rainy....how odd!

Here's today's Question Of The Day!

What is the title of the last book you read?


I think the last book I read was Lee Child's "Gone Tomorrow." I LOVE his books, and pre-order them from Amazon.com, when he has a new one coming out. He just doesn't write them fast enough!

"Puppy Chow is Better Than Prozac" by Bruce Goldstein... an EXCELLENT book about how animals can change our lives for the better and give us something to live for, even when faced with overwhelming challenges (in this case, mental illness). I recommend this book to ANYone. My husband is reading it now, he loves it already.

I've been on a Betty Smith binge. Yesterday (home with a Fibromyalgia attack) I finished Tomorrow Will Be Better, read in it's entirety Joy In the Morning, and started A Tree Grows In Brooklyn when I went to bed.

Before that I read The House of the Scorpion and A Girl Named Disaster, both by Nancy Farmer

I just read "Portuguese Irregular Verbs" by Alexander McCall Smith. Now I'm onto the second in his series, and it had me laughing out loud!

I agree with you about Lee Child!

The last on I finished was The Cat Who Walks Through Walls by Robert Heinlein. I liked The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and wanted to try some of his other books. Unfortunately, I didn't much care for this latest book at all. About 2/3 of the way through, it went from a vaguely plausible alternate future to total craziness with alternate universes, time travel, 2000 year old people, etc. I had to struggle to finish the last of it. Oh, and the cat (actually a kitten) only appeared a couple of times in an incidental manner.

Now I working on Moby Dick. I never had to read it in school, so I wanted to see what I was missing. I can pick up classics pretty cheaply at the used bookstore, so I have a rather large pile of them now.

Last one I finished was Charlie Huston's The Mystic Arts of Erasing all Signs of Death. It's a bit odd, centering on a Hollywood cover up and a turf war between crime scene clean-up companies, but it's a quick and amusing read.

The last book I read was YOU CAN'T DRINK ALL DAY IF YOU DON'T START IN THE MORNING by Celia Rivenbark. Celia is a very funny writer local writer who has written several books and has a column in several newspapers. She's also lives right across the street from me, and I Kittysit for her and she Kittysits for me. Very funny book.

Tell Me Where it Hurts by Dr. Nick Trout...its an autobiography about a day in the life of an Aminal surgeon. and it was REALLY good my sister stole it from me while I was mid-page to look at it and didn't give it back for a few hours. LOL. and right now I'm working (slowly) through child Development and Education for my child development class.

I think it was The Bourne Betrayal - based off Robert Ludlum's Bourne series.

I just started reading "Hello Vodka, are you there? It's me Chelsea". Only on page 50 but it's pretty funny so far.

Is this book recommended for teens?
post #20 of 27
I would say that is appropiate for teens. It's a great book that shows differences in cultures, different ways of life, religion, beliefs, etc. It is about an 18 year old girl, so it is also relateable.

Well....I can't remmber the last one I finished because it was so long ago, but currently I am reading "How Alberta is leading Canada into environmental armageddon and doesn't seem to care". Its about the oil crisis and very interesting.

Just finished "Warrior Rising" by P.C. Cast. It's one of her "Goddess" series of books. Think Harlequin Romance meets Greek Mythology mixed with a touch of today.


I'm currently reading "The Little Friend" by Donna Tartt.
