    I just finished "A Live Coal in the Sea" by Madeline L'Engle. It's the first time I've read one of her adult books; I loved the Wrinkle in Time series. This had some references to astronomy, but no time/space travel. It was pretty good, although I didn't love it enough to re-read it.

    Arc of Justice by Kevin Boyle.

    I don't normally read nonfiction, but this is really compelling. Has anyone else read this book?

    In the past month I have finished The Vineyard, read White Oleander, and The Brethren (John Grisham) I would reccommend all 3.
    I might as well work. I'm in a bad mood anyway.

    I just finished Kite Runner. What a beautifully written story.

    I'm reading Al Franken's "The Truth: With Jokes". As always, I can't believe that anyone voluntarily votes Republican.

    I'm reading "The Last Templar" by Raymond Khoury but I think I'm going to throw it to the wall (which is what I do when a book starts to annoy me). By page 335 I'm getting impatient with it, I don't like one of the main characters and I'd like to kick him really badly... never a good thing.

    I'm slogging my way through Donna Tartt's The Little Friend. I couldn't put down The Secret History but this one is sloooooow going. So far I'm finding it quite disappointing as well.
