I make a reading list each year, I log in to the university's recommended reading list and pick out some of them!
I have more books than I will ever read! I am suppose to be reading The Devanci Code! At my son's request! This looks to serious to me but I will give it a try!
He will probably make me take a test!

I did read Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich, that was interesting! It showed how most people can not make a decent salary and support a family!

Good thing he is staying on campus and going to summer school or I would probably be spending my whole summer reading!

I'm going to start "The Damnation of Theron Ware" by Harold Frederic. I picked that up at a book sale at the library. I kind of have a summer re-read list: "The Life-Giving Sword: Secret Teachings from the House of the Shogun" - Yagyu Munenori, "The Way of Aikido: Life Lessons from an American Sensei" - George Leonard (that's a cool book) and "Walden" and "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" by Thoreau. I had to read those in school, but when you have to read something, you kind of miss the point. I've read a lot of Maeve Binchy, however sometimes her stories are kind of the same...they start in 1950's Ireland, a group of friends, betrayal, that sort of thing.

Remember I been reading the book :
15 minutes
Today was flipping the tv remote channels & came across this movie & the wording & actions of the bad guys made me stick around & watch..sure enough it was the movie "15 minutes" so I taped the rest of it!
Good timing on my part :)

I've been working my way through my collection of Sue Grafton's "alphabetical" mysteries. I'm up to "Q is for Quarry" (skipped "M" because some time back I got rid of the hardcover, and haven't bought a second-hand paperback version to replace it yet).

I think "R..." was just released - have to check out the second-hand bookshops, or (gasp!) get a library card.... (I'm notorious for not returning library books. I think I'm on the TPL's hit list - "shoot on sight", or something! I tremble to think of the dues I owe...)

I also have several boxes of books that were sitting in my friend's basement for fourteen years to sort through and figure out which are keepers and which aren't.

i agree with you. i prefer reading a book before seing the movie. It's what i did with harry potter and the lord of the ring. i had read all the books before having seen the 1 st movie of each.
But i also read a lot of book in english. The one i'm reading now is in english. I really like this language. Now i'm waiting to be strong enough in dutch to read books in dutch. At least i can already read the paper in Dutch.
I didn't read this book "secret window". what's the story?

I just finished reading A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and I really enjoyed that. That was a few weeks ago so who knows when I'll pick up another book and what it will be.
