    I am now reading Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks. It is really good so far.

    Just bought it Friday... "Animals in Translation". What did you think of it Jess? Also bought, "You: The Owners Manual". Hope to read both before Christmas, but it takes me awhile!

    Hi :)

    Pretty good, just real busy. Thanksgiving was fun and very family oriented but a bit hectic at times all the same. Thanks for asking. :)

    I am now reading The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman.

    I'm just a few chapters in and I'm already gobsmacked. The clash of the Hmong and American cultures and the young girls life at stake... it's a must read for those who are really interested in cultures.

    I'm looking to read Animals In Translation next and then start the Harry Potter series. ;)

    I haven't finished it yet, I'm about halfway through, but the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is phenomenal.

    Right now I am reading Soiled Doves by Anne Seagraves. It's very interesting. I picked it up when I went to Tombstone a couple months ago.

    One of the books I have going right now is The Celts: The People Who Came Out of the Darkness, by Richard Germ.

    Don't think it ever made the best seller lists ;)

    Just finished 'Son of Shadows' by Juliet Marillier. It's the second book in the Sevenwaters trilogy and I'm looking forward to reading the third, but I think I need a break from it for a while.

    Not sure what I'll read next. I have soooo many books here I want to read. I wish I read faster. LOL :p

    Cass.

    Oh, Cass . . . I've read Son of the Shadows several times - it's a favorite of mine . . . you've reminded me to look for the other two books the next time I'm in the used bookstore :)

    Have you ever read Pamela Dean's Tam Lin? http://www.amazon.com/Tam-Lin-Fairy-Tales/dp/0812544501

    Right now I'm reading The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell.
    I've been wanting to read it for a long time and I finally bought it. It's very interesting, I'm enjoying it so far.

    I'm in the process of reading Born To Win by Patricia Craige and I just placed an order for a bunch of books on Amazon so I'll be busy. Also reading The Other End of the Leash for the 4th or so time. ;)

    That is always on stand by in case I don't have a new book at the time :)

    Right now I have had Stephen King's Cell started for about 2 months now............I read the first chapter, put it down and forget about it for a couple weeks, then start over. At this rate I will never read it.
    Normally I read myself to sleep at night but lately I am already sleepy enough by bedtime.

    The last books that I loved was the Left Behind Series. Great books!

    The very last book I think I read was...The Blind Mirror by Christopher Pike. It's an adult novel and now that I look again he's got a newer series out called Alosha.

    I just started Marley and Me. Liz lent it to me several months ago, and I just now started reading it. I have been too scared I was going to cry!
