    Tell us about a great book that you are reading! .....or have read. .... or have heard about and you want to read!

    As much as we would like to, we can't quilt ALL the time. I love to read a LOT!

    I'm currently reading "Devil in the White City", mostly because the movie is coming out. I like to read the book first - sometimes it helps when they have to cut the movie down to 1.5 hours.

    Edge of Evil by J. A. Jance. I buy most of my books at our semi-annual library book sale, 50 cents for hardbacks and 25 cents for paperbacks. I buy enough to last until the next book sale then take back the ones I have read and buy more. Cheap way to read. There is always a good selection. My only problem is that I sometimes buy one or two that I have already read and turned back in. Oh well, it is for a good cause.

    I am reading "In the Company of Others" by Jan Karon. It is part of the Mitford series. About a Reverand and his quiet town, very enjoyable characters. I also just finished reading "Darkly Dreaming" the book that launched the Dexter series on HBO.

    Just finished The Noticer by Andy Andrews. It's a very thought provoking book.

    Now I'm reading Indian Creek Chronicles by Pete Fromm. It's a story of a college kid who gets a job in Montana overseeing salmon eggs and spends the winter alone in the wilderness. So far, it's a fun read.

    Next up will be The Story of Rachel Calof. It is the diary of a Russian Jewish mail order bride that came to North Dakota in 1894.

    Just started You had me at Woof. It was a Christmas present and it is about how a Boston Terrier (which I have two)teaches a woman about love. Only about 20 pages into it.

    I am reading...listening to it on CD actually..the Help by Kathryn Stockett . When my book club started this book I wasn't quite thrilled. There were so many others on the list that appealed better to me than this one. But I went to the library to see if they had it...darn it...only on audio. Well..let's get it over with..I said to myself...I was glued to the story before the first disk was over. =)

    and a Susan Hill mystery - new to me and very good.
    I'm a big mystery reader and finding a new writer who's written alot is wonderful.
    Thanks for the Against the Law suggestion

    "Shadow Tag" by Louise Erdrich and listening to as I sew, "Divining Women" by Kay Gibbon. Both are good reads but Shadow Tag is painful as it it about the decline of a marriage. Erdrich is an excellent writer so will finish to the sad end.

    Just finished "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" (true story) about a woman whose cancer cells were removed and used for testing without her knowledge and has led to a multibillion dollar industry and questions the privacy laws for medical research.
    Do I sound like the retired librarian I am (LOL).

    I just started Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer. Got it for $1 at the dollar store. So far, so good.

    I am also listening (on CD) to "The Help" by Stockett. The voices of the readers are wonderful, aren't they?

    Great story! Historical fiction. I am loving it!

    I really enjoyed this one! I believe Jennifer Chieverini (sp?) has a new book due out in Feb. I can't wait. I love her books. My husband found 5 or 6 of her books at a used bookstore at the beach last summer and he bought all of them for me. I was so surprised!

    LOVE the Mitford series! One of my all time favorites.

    Been reading a lot by Karen Kingsbury - just pick up what I haven't read when I go to the library.

    I get all my books from the library. They also have a lot of audio books - we get them when we travel and my husband gets them for his work commute.

    Just read one about a detective with a dog named Chet - the series is told from the dog's perspective. Spencer Quinn is the author - the first in the series is "Dog on It", but I don't remember what the latest one was called.

    Forgot what you read - my mother and her friend get books at the half-price book store - there's a section of paperbacks really cheap. They now have THE LIST - where they write down what they've read. I'm not to that point yet, but sure am disappointed when I get in to a book a few pages and realize I've read it. :(
