    I just read 'The Seeress of Kell' by David Eddings (I know, I'm such a geek ) and it was amazing. I would definitely reccomend it

    I just finished this book as well. It was beautifully written, and you could definitely see where each of the characters was coming from. I cried quite a few times...

    Perhaps I should read the book.....now there's a thought.

    I've been wanting to read "My Sister's Keeper." It's definitely on my list. I've only read snippets of Jodi Picoult's work, but from what I've read I'm hooked. I've just finished Leslie Schnur's "The Dog Walker." Cute book. I'm currently reading Maria McCann's "As Meat Loves Salt," and William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying."
    Ludicrous speed!

    Read "No Phule like an old Phule" by Robert Aspirin and Peter J. Heck on Wednesday, started on Thursday and finished "Tattoo Blues" by Michael McClelland on Friday. Got two more books to read this week.

    I finally picked it up myself to see what all the fuss is about and, yeah, it's a fun page-turner. I just wanted to take a peek at the beginning while I was in the bath, and fast-forward to some very pruny toes about an hour and a half later.

    I'm about halfway through now, and am enjoying all the historical, cultural factoids, and conspiracy theory stuff. We can talk about it when I'm done--I'm avoiding the Da Vinci Code thread in this forum like the plague until I'm done. I don't want to inadvertently read any spoilers! *sticks fingers in ears, sings Lalalalala!!!*

    Isn't The Hippopotamus excellent? Glad someone else here can vouch for it.

    Well, since so many people whose opinions I respect seem to like Good Omens I guess I'm going to have to get it next. American Gods just came in the mail this weekend, so I'll wait until after I'm done with that--I love Half.com!

    Hi All

    I love to read and do so for entertainment, so tend not to ready anything too heavy. I generally prefer mysteries, thrillers, courtroom dramas and a few classics here and there but have now read most of my fav. authors. At the moment, having purchased about 5 new books last week, and no knowing where to start, I started reading most of these:

    The Bride Stripped Bare by Anonymous - very insightful so far.
    Postcards from the Bed by Marian Keyes - this a compilation of articles written for magazines (can read 1 then go to the next one later)
    Harry Potter & Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling - this is my first Harry Potter experience and I became thoroughly addicted, so read all of them and am now waiting anxiously for number 6 (much like about 5 gazillion other people in the world)
    No 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall - started this in between Harry Potters, but unforunately I left in on the bus going to work so will have to buy another. I was enjoying it so far but my Harry Potter addiction was too strong to allow me to finish it.
    Halloween Party by Agatha Christie (about the 4th time) - bedtime reading - I basically remember what happens in the end so am able to get to sleep without needing to finish before I go to sleep.

    Cheers
    Jen

    I'm currently reading Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book the Tenth: The Slippery Slope

    It's a good book, and it's a good series
