Whatcha readin' gang?

I also can’t help but devour those books. They may be easy to read but they are just so funny. Any part with Grandma Mazur is almost certain to have me laughing.

Just finished The Science of James Bond: From Bullets to Bowler Hats to Boat Jumps, the Real Technology Behind 007’s Fabulous Films, by Lois H. Gresh, Robert Weinberg. Eh. Thought it would be better, somehow…

Now reading Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads, by Rosalind Wiseman. Don’t even have kids but still find it interesting.

I agree. I couldn’t get though it, either. If you haven’t read it yet, you might find Memoir from Antproof Case worth your time. Helprin does much better writing as an old coot.

I’m reading Almanac of the Dead by Leslie Marmon Silko. So far it’s slow going and depressing, but I’m not far enough along yet to chuck it.

I’m rereading A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, and I have On Off by Colleen McCullough standing by.

I just put down the autobiographical novel I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, with some relief - really couldn’t get it into it, so I quit after 70 pages. I’m now reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, a literary thriller which despite some good points just isn’t living up to its reviews, alas. Over Christmas, I hope to dive into Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals, about Lincoln’s Cabinet during the Civil War.

Mostly I’m reading my notes and outlines, with some of other people’s notes and outlines for variety. Also several “Crunchtime” commercial outlines.

I’m sorta managing to read Salt: A World History on the side as well. Mostly in the bathroom these days; I’ll get to it in a serious way after exams.

I just finished “Small Things Considered” by Henry Petroski. Avoid this book.

I’m just getting done with “The Bible Unearthed,” by Finkelstein and Silberman. I find it to be a fairly tough read because of its format, but worthwhile. Unfortunately, I know little about archaeology, so I’m able to read it as critically as I’d like.

I’m also reading “One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I’m going to hate when I get to the end of it.

Let’s see. I just finished Jim Butcher’s ‘Cursor’s Fury’ which I enjoyed. Can’t wait for the next one. I’m halfway through Douglas Clegg’s Mordred: Bastard Son, which I hope improves soon. So far I am not very impressed. Mildly intrigued, and still optimistic. I have a lot of books waiting to be read, so I haven’t decided what will be next. Possibly Lois McMaster Bujold’s ‘Palidan of Souls’.

Don’t tell anyone, but I might go out and get 7 and 8 tonight.

So… Ranger or Morelli?

I thought of you – I know what a fan of his you are. Antproof Case is on my Amazon list – thanks for the recommendation on that.

I also was disappointed by it, though I did finish it. (Of course, I was traveling, and that was the book I had with me…)

Both! And completely wasted on Stephanie. :wink:

Both, with me in the middle. :smiley: Yummy!
