finally got book 6 of Earth's Children Series "Land of Painted Caves" by Jean Auel.  Been waiting for this for awhile. Just finished "Heaven Is for Real" by my high school wresting teammate Todd Burpo

I just started "Youth in Revolt" yesterday.  So far it's pretty hilarious.

Halfway through 'Alone" by Lisa Gardner. A must read for the detective/CSI type!

I just noticed a few days ago that there was a new book out for that series. I thought it was finsihed ages ago. I'll wait to buy it though, since I'd prefer it in paperback like the rest of the series.

In the middle of The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens. It's a fictional autobiography of a Siamese twin whose head is connected to her sister. So far it's pretty good.

For those with a Kindle I recommend the Professor Vook series. They are short textbooks on a ton of subjects, and they're free!!

I know they're technically "Young Adult" books but I just finished the Hunger Games trilogy and it was awesome. I picked up the first book on a whim and ended up reading it all in one sitting. I then went and got the next two the very next day.

Two thumbs way up!

The Koreans. Its certainly not an academic book, but it is an interesting point of view none the less. The authors has lived/did live here for a long time, and he has an opinion worth hearing (even if it has a lot of holes in it).

Anything by Cormac MacCarthy is great (although the Road is a bit heavy)

I just finished reading several novels by Amanda Quick aka Jayne Castle. I'm trying to decide what to read next.

I'm reading Of Love and Slaughter.  I can't remember the authors name at the moment.  The book is about 2 farms (that's owned and managed by best friends) that gets hit by foot and mouth disease.  I'm not very far into the book but it looks promising!

I am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The writing is quite flat, but the plot is beginning to pull me in -- I'm about a third of the way through. It's good enough for an unwind.

Right now I am reading Water For Elephants and Nother to Envy (both great books!)
Books I have read in the past 7 months
The Giver (3 day read, better then I remember)
Me Speak Pretty One Day (some of the stories were good)
Assholes Finish First (really funny but not for everyone)
Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang (If you think Chelsea handler is funny you will LOVE all 3 of her books!)
