My neighbor Nona gave my the complete works of Lilian Jackson Braun about a reporter that has two Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum and they solve mysteries. At first I thought how silly, but now I'm on book number four. No heavy reading - just entertainment.

I just finished reading "Pride and Prejudice," the other night and started "Tale of Two Cities" last night.

Mo10C, I'm going to keep with it then. I think part of the problem is that I only read it on occassion during my break at work. If I take it home with maybe I can give it attention for longer spans of time.

I just finished reading, The Speed of Light, by Elizabeth Rosner. It is told from 3 different characters point of view. The typeface is different for each character, so you know who is telling the story when it switches back and forth. It is a well written story, covering some serious issues in a creative manner that doesn't bore.

Now I've started Dan Brown's, Digital Fortress. I believe he wrote that before he wrote The DaVinci Code, but it is unrelated as far as I can tell.

I'm going back to school, taking online classes, so I have also started reading the textbook for my Environmental Ethics class. Some of it interesting, but I hope I have the discipline to keep reading a textbook. (or at least as much as assigned to read)

Ccdogmuffin, no comment on, "The Drawing of the Three"? That pulled me in so deep to "The Dark Tower" series I was amazed. "Calla of the Wolves; The Dark Tower V", wasn't near the book that you just read but I still can't stop reading because I have to know what happens.

I should be ploughing through a book about German grammar – Yawn!

Instead I just finished „Sick Puppy“ and just started „Lucky You“ by Karl Hiaasen. Very funny.

Also I just ordered „Watchmen“ by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons but it’ll take about three weeks for delivery.

Saw a lot of old favourites listed here – Steven King (especially Gunslinger etc.), Dean Koontz, Anne Rice... I also love anything by Michael Crichton.

The Calvin and Hobbes comics are always good for a giggle.

The Nania series? Wasn‘t that the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? Can’t remember too much of the plot but I know I loved it as a kid. Another good children’s book was “Folk of the faraway Tree†– anyone know who wrote it?
post #72 of 555
Dwarfie - the person who wrote the Faraway Tree series was Enid Blyton. Dang, she was my favourite as a kid! I loved her books!

Yeah thats it!Its by C.S. Lewis.

Actually, I think it's Narnia.
post #75 of 555
It is. I really enjoyed those stories when I was younger, too. They are a good example of allegory and probably C.S. Lewis' easiest books to understand. In high school I tried reading his book, The Screwtape Letters, but just couldn't stick with it. But, back to the Chronicles of Narnia-if you're interested Pooky, after you read them, some of the books have been made into movies, both with human actors and animated.

Moon by James Herbert, I only started it yesterday and I can't put it down.

Finally, the library got me a copy of Patricia Cornwell's Blow Fly! I've been on the hold list, for three months and I finished it, today. Heckuva shocker. Hope Scarpetta can finally settle down, with a nice guy.

I am now reading the Summons by john grisham...
usually i dont like his books but this one is ok...
I just read a really good book called Gap creek...

After 'Moon' I started 'Night Probe' by Clive Cussler. I finished that today so I'm off on the hunt for a new read. I really want to read 'Sahara' before the film comes out because it's one of the two 'Dirk Pitt' books I don't have yet.

To keep our heads prepared for the coming national election, we are reading "The Bush-Hater's Handbook, a Guide to the Most Appalling Presidency of the Past 100 Years," by Jack Huberman, and Ron Suskind's "The Price of Loyalty, George W. Bush, the White House and the Education of Paul O'Neill."

We just finished Michael Moore's "Stupid White Men... and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation," and we have his latest, "Dude, Where's My Country?" on order.

We guess that situates us.

According to the UK press I have been reading of late, the irony may be that Dubya is likely to be reelected, while, on the other hand, it is not unlikely that he will have led Blair to defeat. All will be well.... We pray.

I just finished 'Sahara' by Clive Cussler and I've started 'Trojan Odyssey' the new book, When I finish it I'll have read all the 'Dirk Pitt' books.
post #85 of 555
Clive Cussler is AWESOME!!! I read one of his books and I thought it would be boring but I really got into it. I wouldnt mind being Dirk Pitt!

I am reading Island of Bones which is not bad at all.
post #86 of 555
Just finished "Fury" by Rushdie and "The Five People You Meet In Heaven" (my mom wanted me to read it - same author as "Tuesdays w/Morrie") and am starting "Life of Pi".
post #87 of 555
I just finished Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier and am starting the next book in that trilogy, the 3rd, called Child of the Prophecy.

New author to me, I like her work a great deal.
post #88 of 555
Well, I finished 'Trojan Odyssey' (I didn't sleep but I finished it) I really don't know what to say about it. The book was great but it looks like there won't be anymore Dirk Pitt books I can't say too much in case someone else wants to read it but it seemed like a proper ending. I did read that Clive Cussler was considering retirement but that his son Dirk Cussler may take over the series. I guess I'll have to move on to his Kurt Austin series

Hello everyone,

I just started reading this cool series entitled "Warriors" by Erin Hunter. It's a fantasy series about a little house cat named Rusty who meets a "clan" of feral cats. They are the ThunderClan, and they are suffering for their territory and need more warrior cats. They are being persecuted by another clan of cats, the ShadowClan. Rusty will leave his comfortable home and join the ThunderClan, if he can endure the warrior training. This is pretty neat, but I usually like fantasy novels about cats. There are about 4 volumes in the Warriors series. I'll probably read all of them.
