    I enjoyed The Da Vinci Code as well but liked the book before it Angels and Demons the best. Many people don't know to read A&D 1st. I got both books as Christmas presents and was told to "read Angels and demons 1st" or I would have just read Da vinci 1st and not enjoyed it nearly as much without the background info in A&D

    Thanks to a post from the "Great Non-Fiction" thread (I think), I picked up Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer today. I'm about halfway into it, and I've been lurving it. It's absolutely incredible. When I finish the book, I bet it'll keep me thinking for a while.

It was made into a great movie by Sofia Coppola starring Kirsten Dunst, and the book is very good as well. I saw the movie first though, which probably ruined the reading experience a bit.
    Middlesex is the best book I've read in a long, long time, so I will check out The Virgin Suicides. I just started The Time Traveller's Wife.

    I'm re-reading Jeffrey Sackett's horror novels now ("The Demon", "Candlemas Eve", etc.), and will re-read "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" in preparation for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".

    Lotus, me too! I'm about a third of the way through it and am hooked, can't wait to see how it turns out and if it stays as good as it started. It will be interesting to see the Henrys 'catch up' with each other as Clare grows up.

    Lotus and Jamie, let me know how you like The Time Traveller's Wife. I've been meaning to read it quite some time though, so I'll make it my next book purchase. I read the first couple of sample pages on Amazon and was intruiged. It seems like just my kind of book.

    HappyCynic, if you look back through this thread, you'll see several of us love The Eyre Affair and its sequels.

    I'm actually reading Fforde's latest, "The Big Over Easy." It's not out till later this month, but I snagged an advance copy.
