    Right now I am reading
    Texas Angel by Judith Pella.

    I have never read any of her books so far and I actually really like this book. I cannot put it down. I love when you find a random book and just love it!

    Just finished "The Lightning Thief" from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I know, it's teen reading, but my daughter's like them and I like to read a series. I figure it gives us another thing to talk about. I've read the HP books, the Eragon books and the Ranger's Apprentice books as well.

    Almost done "Sea of Monsters" (book 2 of the Percy Jackson series). I'm actually enjoying it. It's light reading for me, but the story is told pretty well and I like Greek Mythology stuff, too.

    Awesome book. In fact, that whole series is awesome. If you plan to read the whole thing, be sure to do it Farseer Trilogy -> Liveship Trader Trilogy -> Tawny Men Trilogy. The middle trilogy doesn't impact the lives of the characters in Farseer/Tawny Men, but there's a lot of things that will make a heckuva lotta more sense if you'd read Liveship first.

    Plus it's a good series on its own.

    That's a wicked awesome series. Maybe by the time you're caught up, he'll have the next book out......read faster **** it!

    That's another great book. Incredibly funny and, unfortunately at times, quite true to the life.




    Currently I'm reading "QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter" by Richard Feynman.

    I'm now "reading" A Lion Among Men. I have Son of a Witch on hold, too. Both are on a Playaway. Wonderful when you're shopping/driving/don't care to interact with people.

    Just finished rereading The Year of the Woman by Jonathan Gash It gives an unsentimental, un-romanticized view of what it's like to be a poor girl in Hong Kong while also being suspenseful and exciting. Oh, yes, and just a dash of the supernatural--but not your average supernatural dash!

    This author generally produces mental popcorn; it's fun while you're reading it, but there's not much substance. This book, though, is excellent.

    God's Debris. Amazing, thought provoking book written by a cartoon writer. Loved it.
