    I'm a total book junkie. I read about 10 a week. Most recently I've read:

    The Secret Garden
    The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love
    Helen Keller: A Life
    Bleak House
    The Pickwick Papers
    Marie Curie and Her Daughter
    Sleeping Arrangements
    Pride and Prejudice
    Portrait in Death
    A Year in Provence
    I Don't Know How She Does It
    The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc

    Thanks for all the great ideas this thread has given me!

    I've ordered several out of print books from independents on Amazon.com and never had a bad experience. The books have always been as they were described as far as condition and the prices are for the most part, very fair. I've even ordered a couple of first editions and been VERY pleased. Most of them were in better condition that described.

    I don't read many biographys, because most people lives simply are not novelesque, but I recenty re-read, Get Happy, a bio of Judy Garland, was excellent, what a life that woman had, a very unhappy one. Drugs, booze, homosexuality, fame, insanity, heartbreak...

    Wow, what was the insanity part, not to mention the homosexuality?

    Every now and then I get on a biography kick, especially if there are several books about one person.

    I read that a few years ago and loved it. A good fast read that made me laugh out loud on the bus on the way home from work. The second book isn't as much fun, imo.

    I've read it so many times (before and after the movie) It's not too bad. I love the way Helen Fielding writes. Like sweetpea, I didn't enjoy the second one as much as the first.

    His Dark Materials, Books I, II and now partway through Book III. Simply fantastic; can't really describe it, but would love to discuss it with anyone else who's read it.

    This is one of those trilogies that stay with you for a long, long while.

    I loved it. And unlike Raindance and Sweetpea, I loved the second one as well. I liked it in part for the writing, and in part because I related rather too well to Bridget.
