Starting Over

I finished Thin Air yesterday and then read A Catskill Eagle also one of the Spenser Series, it was an earlier one that was checked out of the library when I got to it on the list. Again very easy PI read. I started that series this year and am going through them pretty quickly I usually get two every time I go to the library. I went to the library yesterday (before finishing Thin Air) so when I go to read today I will just reach in the bag and grab a new one. Some of the best I've read so far this year: Bean Trees and Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver, I can't get into Poisonwood Bible I pick it up every time I finish all my books before I get back to the library. Bet Me by Jennifer Cruisie was a cute fun read and along the same line was Lucky Stars by Jane Heller and Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella. White Oleander by Janet Fitch was much better than the movie, and the movie was okay.

A fun book

Ok first let me claim my previous post. That was me who finished the Five People and will be reading Lolita when I come in November.

I LOVE that Erika made links to the books. I still havent been able to play enough to figure that out.

The last book I ordered, which should be arriving today is a fun one. It is called Furry Logic. If Amazon gives you a choice to look inside do so.

I added a link to what I think you mean - check it out let me know if it's wrong. For some reason I first read it as FuZZy Logic. Linking is really easy, highlight the word you want to be the link click on the little chain in the toolbar next to font color and paste the link.

DaVinci Code

OK, now I can do it. If we have to sign our posts, it also needs to be a rule that if we comment as Amazon Reader we need to sign them too.

Between those two books I mentioned I also read Lost Light by Michael Connelly; a Private Eye kind of story a quick and easy read and I liked very much: Perfect by Judith McNaught, large hardcover that gave me carpel tunnel holding it up but I stayed up all one night finishing it. And before those I read The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri that Erika gave me. Also very good.

I got Angels and Demons from the clubhouse and read that and now am looking for the DaVinci Code. Angels and Demons was a prequel to TDC so now I'm ready to read that.

Loving this

As I posted I am reading Five People you Meet in Heaven. I agree that it is not as good as Tuesdays with Maury, but it still is keeping my attention.

I am saving a book for my trip, Reading Lolita in Tehran. I am looking forward to that one.

Thin Air

I am currently reading Thin Air by Rober B. Parker. It is about 20 in the Spenser series. This series of books spawned the Spenser for Hire tv show with Robert Urich, oh somewhere in the 80's I think. I never did watch the show but the books are pretty good. Standard PI stuff, easy read. With not working I have had plenty of time to ready this year and have read over 100 books so far, only a few of them "good" books as opposed to trashy, easy novels.
