clown Whatcha reading?

I'm reading a fun book, "I Remember Nothing," by Nora Ephron. It's a laugh and a half. She tells some fun tales, from her interesting childhood as a Beverly Hills child of a movie screenwriter father and academician mother. Went to college and her folks published her letters home verbatim in a play they co-wrote (it's well known, but I forget the name)!

She got an eastern education at Wellesley I think, and into journalism in NY in interesting times... from the Beatles to Watergate... to how she banged out "When Harry Met Sally." She's got a funny take on a lot of things. I loved reading her, "I Hate My Neck." That was a good one, too.

I just read two books actually, all day yesterday.

The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker... freaky, spiritual mystery/serial killer novel. Pretty intense and a fast read.

Supreme Justice by Philip Margolin.... legal thriller which takes place in Portland, OR and Washington DC. Great book if you like legal suspence stories that have strange twists. I was not expecting the ending, and I am pretty darn good at predicting them.

I brought with me: the Lincoln Lawyer (I read this years ago, but want to reread before I see the movie when I get back). And Sing Me Home by Jodi Picoult.... love her books -- usually thought provoking and make you just a little uncomfortable by your thoughts.

If I finish those, I am going to breakdown and buy Fall of Giants by Ken Folliet...... It is cost prohibitive but, I don't know that I can wait any longer.

I'm more of a non-fiction reader at times, and I would highly recommend "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin deBecker. Very good book, especially for all the single moms out there to help you understand how to live your life in comfort rather than freaked out by the media all the time.

On the fiction side, anything by Robin Hobb is good and for murder/mysteries Cara Black's series set in Paris is wonderful. Very detailed and intricate. "Murder in the Marais" is the new one I believe.

Yes, deBecker's "Protecting the Gift" (meaning children), and "The Gift of Fear" are excellent, and what they most wonderfully are is an acknowledgement that all of your parental instincts and intuition are GOOD. I got "Protecting the Gift" at the Dollar Store about ten years ago, read it and gave it to my mom, and then she got copies for all my brothers and sister. It's interesting and USEFUL, easy to read and well worth actual full cover cost!

If you are interested in going deeper into one line of problem intruders out there, there is, "Conversations with a Pedophile; In the Interest of our Children," by Dr. Amy Hammel-Zabin, which I read last year (after hiding it in my bookcase for a year... totally repulsed at the idea) and was very, very impressed with as a tool of awakening for parents which could make a big difference in their ability to foresee a potential problem. She (Dr. Amy) was an young music therapist who could only get work at a prison, and therein she found herself able to tap a resource that she offers very carefully to us all. It's not sensationalistic or graphic. It's cleansed of that yet manages to pull open the drapes on a line of thinking that it's so good for us parents to KNOW about.

Blue Latitudes has disappointed me as my next book, and I can't get "Bitter is the New Black" at the library right now, which sounded so good, and I need a new book. What else are you reading folks?[COLOR="Silver"]

I've considered rereading Twilight because it drew me in quickly... though I guess number 1 was a little slow at first, I also knew the excitement was coming regardless of what I was reading. Seriously though once they start sitting next to one another in science class and about burning up in hotness I was beyond hooked.

Yeah, maybe I'll reread that as it is such simple reading I probably only need 15 or 20 minutes here and there.
My daughter ate up the Twilight books ravenously... which shocked me! Just tore them up as fast as she could and I was SO excited to see her being such a reader! The storyline caused me to have much feminist discussion with her about it, and I could not keep her from running headlong into the next vampire-esque series she found, "The Dead" series, and now she's into another one, has to check the entire series out at once, and tears through them. This one thankfully has goddesses and things I like better, but still plenty of vampires and keepers of the faith, whom I will not allow her to tell me about (she wants to tell me so much of it) unless she translates vampires into bunnies and keepers of faith into frogs, because vampires and such just give me the CREEPS!! The titles are things like, "Marked," "Betrayed," "Chosen," "Untamed," "Hunted," "Tempted," "Burned,"Awakened." I am trying to steer her toward more seemly literature, but so far, she LOVES these, laughs, and has cried, too. She says, Mom, I know it's not REAL, Okay, so, the "bunnies" have a thing that the "frogs" can't do, and.... cracks me up.

Just picked up a few books, one was an oldy (not really) but a goody:

Material World. They take representative families from many countries and put everything they own out in front of their home and tell about what it's like in their country. Great for adults or kids.

Companion book is Hungry Planet, where they take each family's food for a week, say how much it costs for it, and representative meals.

Can't say how much my family loves these books.

Brass Bells: My daughter ate up the Twilight series too. I had a problem with the Marked, Chosen, so on so forth series... I read the first book and there were some real adult themes that I thought, for my daughter at 12, were too mature. Kind of like a harlequin romance.

For your daughter, try to get her into Ann Rinaldi. My daughter LOVES this author. She writes historical fiction. One of the books is written at the viewpoint of Sarah, the daughter of Paul Revere. I have read these books as well, and they are WONDERFUL.

My A is now reading the classics, but that took 2 years of me convincing her that Emma and Jane Austin were worthy reads! She just finished Wuthering Heights and said to me that it reminded her of the Twilight series.....

Yea, it's strange. I took my d to the movies of the books, of course, she HAD to see them, and I am so bad, I could not help myself from busting up laughing loud and long when sparkling white wierdo Edward and family arrived at the lunchroom. I thought, "oh, I get it, it's a big parody!!" But, it wasn't, it was SERIOUS.

I'm going to look into the Ann Rinaldi suggestion. I don't like my d reading all the nasty stuff that is in those Marked books, and I've been trying to steer her toward the classics, as well, but, I think probably my love for the period movies has turned her way off the Bronte sisters, etc. I laid down the law: after this series her next book was to be mom-approved, period.

I still have nothing to read for myself yet...

Oh i almost forgot the Hunger Games series..they are pretty good....LIttle different but i speed through them

Sookie Stackhouse series is good for the vampire lovers (although not suggested for kids) actually all of Charleine Harris books are pretty good, she has a few other "series" she does.

Hunger Games? Okay, that's the second time today I've heard of Hunger Games... I have a friend who is on the crew for a movie they're making of it somewhere not too far from her home in Charleston, SC. I'm going to check that out.

I recently read "Half Broke Horses" by Janette Walls. Very good, interesting, true story (labed fiction due to the first person voice the author chose to write the biography of her grandmother). Set in hardscrabble Texas, less hardscrabble New Mexico, and Arizona, her grandmother's life swept across those states, on foot, on a donkey, and, one day in an airplane she piloted herself. The story's settings are all such vast landscapes, it's a little taste of being there.

Just finished the "29 Gifts". Good book, and I was interested in the lady's backstory.

She had MS and decided to give a gift everyday (maybe even just helping someone) with no need to receive, and found it opened her heart and life.

I love Jodi Picoult too, I have read all of her books and they are great, especially Songs of the Humback Whale, My Sister's Keeper, and Handle with Care. Those are my favorites by her, and I just bought Sing Me Home, so when I finish my other books I will get into that.

I am currently reading Shantaram by Gregory Roberts, it is book written while the guy was in prison for robbing a bank and his heroin addiction and about how he escapes prison and writes of his experiences living in India....very good so far. Soon to be made into a movie and Johnny Depp will be starring, love him =)

One of my favorite all time books is No Ordinary Moments by Dan Millman...it is mostly a self help book for learning to live in the moment, let go of control, be happy...so many great things he helps you with that anyone can relate to in their lives, including dealing with single parenting, addiction, anything. He also has alot of other great books, or you can watch the movie Peaceful Warrior, a book of his that got turned into a movie. Hope you guys check these books out, very good!

The Giver. M saw it in a second hand book store and insisted I read it. He read it in 5th grade and it made quite an impression on him. Very interesting so far!

Sookie Stackhouse series is good for the vampire lovers (although not suggested for kids) actually all of Charleine Harris books are pretty good, she has a few other "series" she does.
I read the first 5 books of that series and to me the first 2 sucked, maybe it was because I watched the series first. Anyway, I like the old school vamps these modern vamps and werewolves are such an in justice.

I'd be all for a book club around here. That would be fun!
Right now, the only thing I'm reading is the book I read to S at bedtime, which right now is "Ella Enchanted"- don't remember the author's name- Devine? Levine? I have to admit I'm a bit of a sucker for good kids' fiction. It's often as well written as for adults, but there is something more straightforward about it that I appreciate.

O didn't really get the handful of scenes that were a bit too mature, she's so disgusted by kissing and such still it was fine for her.

O also has loved the Sisters Grimm and now she's on her last of the Children of the Lamp series. I think the author's last name is Kerr?

No one on this list is into Game of Thrones? Not even my genre, really, but I could not put them down. Finished the last one a few weeks ago and went to buy book 6 (was supposed to come out in Oct., now maybe 2014) and found out the author is always years later than his estimated publish date! Boo... but they are really, really well-written.

I bought Material World years ago for everyone in my family for Christmas. I am surprised they have not updated it yet, but it really makes you think when you see the family in Bhutan that has 3 pots, some great rugs and a few sheep and contrast that with the Texas family whose stuff takes up the whole cult-de-sac outside their house!

Is it appropriate for young teens? Something about the title makes me think my oldest would enjoy it. I'll have to look into it or better yet, just read it on my own first!

Oh, Game of Thrones sounds interesting. I like dark novels.

I am totally a vampire freak. My favorite series of all time was the Vampire Chronicals by Anne Rice, but right now I am reading the one of the Carpathian novels by Christine Feehan. I read the first House of Night book by P.C. Cast, and put the second book on hold at the library, but it was checked out and there was one person already on the waiting list to get that book too!

I am also writing a book, almost done, getting ready to start my second novel. About........can you guess....vampires! Needless to say, NOT child friendly!

But I also like fantasy books, especially books about dragons, I love dragons too.

I like my historical fiction!

I just started reading "And The Mountains Echoed," by Khaled Hosseini (author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns... Loved his first two, read Kite Runner twice. Problem is I'm thinking I should put it away for now, not going to be getting much reading time with all the stuff going on here with start of school!

---------- Post added at 10:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:03 PM ----------

A really neat and quick read is The Girl with the Pearl Earring (can't recall author) Based in the 1600's on Vermeer's paintings it is the made up story of his life and was awesome! I kept the website of his paintings handy while reading it.

Room.... creepy and awesome read. (not historical fiction LOL)

Oh and I just finished The Boy with the Striped Pajamas. It was like Room in that it is written from the child character's eyes. Both did a great job!

B read that for school.

The last couple books I attempted to read (cause I didn't quite finish) were Social Transformations (by Stephen something or other) and a book about the super-colliders and finding the "god particle". Which they did find recently.

My favorite read was probably "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson...so bizarre.

I'm not really into fiction or romance novels.

There is a Canuckian author I am familiar with who is writing some scathing expose's.
There is the raunchy "The Secret Life of Squirrels...the other rodent". And he is already working on the taudry follow up, "Free Love and Acorns, What Exactly Happens in those Oak Trees". I'm giddy with excitement for those releases!

I read his Bio years ago. He was a great Commander. I also read a book called "The War Magician" About a British Stage Illusionist who used his skills to hide the whole port of Alexandra and make Rommel think the Brits where where they weren't. He was assigned to Brit Intel and blew them out of the water.

I'm reading a short book of Kurt Vonnegut's first and last works. The first work was written in the late 40s but wasn't published, and the the last was what he was working on when he died in 2007 (approx 50 yrs after the 1st work). It also includes a nice forward and interesting commentary of both works by his daughter.

I think it might be called "Be Careful What You Pretend to Be", but I'm not sure. The book is upstairs, and I'm downstairs.

Trebor those sound like great books! There is a whole series of rodent books worth reading. "Beavers: why we love them" might be of interest to you. Forget the author's name but might have been Jake Castor. I recently finished "Apocalypse Meow" the story of end of the world from a cat's perspective.

nice.

when things settle down I would like to find a good book to envelope myself in. I'm just not sure what I want to read? I always find myself drawn to books about how the world works or how people coexist. I need something different as those get boring .

Anyone know a book that you can't put down?
