    Apple Turnover Murder by Joann Fluke (very good! Although bad to read when you are on a plane and want to try those recipes that are in the book)

    A Case For Love by Kaye Dacus (great book)

    The Raven Saint by M.L. Tyndall (really good!)

    Wow, DarkLady. AFter just one read of Ethan Frome, I was hideously depressed. I'd hate to tackle that many in a row.

    Speaking of depression, I've been really fighting with it and so went for some light reading from the 'youth' section. (yeah, I'm kinda slow) so I opted to start the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Not bad, no Harry Potter, but entertaining at least.

    Finished 1906. With some of the subjects touched upon I am surprised that the film adaption is being paid for, in part, by Pixar.

    Not sure what I will start next. My school had a used book sale and I picked up fourteen new titles, including the just read 1906. Guess I'll work on The Second World War: Volume I: The Gathering Storm by Winston Churchill until I decide.

    I just finished The Second World War: Volume I: The Gathering Storm recently... Was 1906 worth reading?

    I am now finishing up The Complete Writings of Thomas Paine. I started reading that forever ago, and got distracted with other books, so I need to tie up the loose ends so to speak...

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    Got done reading Stephen King's IT, last week. It was alright but got sidetracked just a bit too much, even for a King novel. And the ending got rather insane.

    Currently reading John Steakley's Vampires. It was loosely the idea of which "John Carpenter's Vampires" was based upon, a movie which I think, though somewhat short, is incredibly underrated.

    Have any intention to read the other five volumes? I got the whole set for Christmas, but am in no rush. 1906 is a nice quick read that I would recommend.

    Currently working my way through The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand for a scholarship competition. About 200 more pages. Beginning was slow but it's really interesting now.

    You should watch the film at the very least just to see the death of Henry Cameron, which is hilarious.

    If I can find it. haha. I love Toohey. He's the antagonist I love, the kind that seems to be helping but is really a manipulative person. My favorite quote is when someone says he doesn't understand how firing someone will help things and he said something along the lines of "You Don't. I do."

    Re: What book are you reading? (or just finished)

    i am reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for the 6th time (i like to re-read them at least once a year). Go Gryffindor!

    And I just finished Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks. It's a really awesome concise overview of current radical feminist politics made for people who dont have degrees in gender studies (i really like to rep my Women and Gender Studies department-holla!)

    I also recently read Commited: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage by Elizabeth Gilbert (it was no Eat, Pray, Love, but it was a really quick enjoyable read).
    "The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after." ~ An imagineer

    Finally finished Under the Dome by Stephen King. Kinda Lord of the Flies-esque, it was a great book with a, IMO, not so great ending.

    I'm going to start re-reading Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner for a book report for class.

    I love Anita Shreve, but the way she wrote "All he ever wanted" I couldn't get past the first few pages.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
