    One of my favorite recent books is one called "The Genesis Code", by John Case. Very cool mix of science and religion, and it has one of the best layperson explanations on genetics I've ever read.

    Anything by Neil Gaiman. Stardust (although the comic book version is better IMO), Good Omens, and American Gods are all really good books.
    Hunter S. Thompson is always a good read too.

    BF, you have to read it! It's so funny...and the 2nd one too. Think it's called 'The Edge of Reason' not as great as the first one, but still funny.

    I just bought 'Sophie's World'. Not sure if it's recent. Anybody read it?

    I've heard that Koontz's very good. Was reading 'A Bad Place' which I didn't have the chance to finish. ('Borrowed' the book from someone )

    raindance, I'm going to disagree with you about "The Edge of Reason". I think it's even funnier than the first. Of course, I picture Colin Firth as Mark which makes it all the better.

    I guess why I liked the first one is because of her hang ups on her lack of relationships and that was so funny

    Speaking of the 2nd Bridget Jones, they're going to do a movie on it, released next year. Makes me think how Colin's going to play 2 roles. Mark Darcy and COlin Firth himself

    Is Renee Zellweger playing Bridget again?

    My recent favorite read was the Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman (I read everything, childrens, adult, sci fi, non-fiction, everything). I just finished the Amber Spyglass last week.

    Yes I heard about that too! I heard Bridget is going to interview George Clooney though instead of Colin. I was pissed.

    Sorry about the threadjacking. . . .

    Here's another beach read suggestion: Mr. Maybe by Jane Green. Also The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin.

    Edit: Shazzer, yes Renee just signed on for $15 milliion I believe.

    Stuart Woods writes good summer reading.
    I just finished "A Short Forever". One from his Stone Barrington series. He's an ex-cop/lawyer/now a PI.
    Dirt, Dead in the Water, Cold Paradise were others of his I enjoyed.

    Also the "Di Vinci Code" by Dan Brown
    It was interesrting through the end.
