It's always interesting hearing what other people are reading. I'm reading the book Multiple Blessing, written byt Jon and Kate Gosselin. This book is about how they got where they are with their 8 children...twins and whatever you call having 6 kids are once.

I'm reading The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. I'm about half way now even though I started it about a month ago. o_O I haven't been reading the past two-three weeks at all. Hopefully I'll read a chapter tonight. I doubt it though since my friend is sleeping over. =P

I don't know about you, but I found The Lord of The Ring series way too dark for my tastes. At least, the movies anyway. I've never been able to read the books. I think I tried reading them back when I was in middle school which was like 15 years ago, and I couldn't get it them.

I tried reading them a few years ago as well and I kept falling asleep after the first two chapters. However, for some reason, I find the book extremely engrossing now. It's still a little hard to concentrate on at some points but the enjoyable parts far outweigh that (it's not as heavy a read as David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, that's for sure!). The movie's did get pretty dark, yes, but I feel that the LotR series is one of those trilogies that everyone should at least attempt reading by the end of high school. So voila - I'm going to finish these three books! xD

I am currently reading "Buffet, The making of an American Capitalist". I am about half way through the book. I think it is interesting the life that Mr. Buffet has had. He is not a ver active person, he seems to sit around reading company financial reports through out most of the book. The book does give some good ideas for investors though. I would suggest this book to anyone interested in the stock market.

Try his authorized biography, "The Snowball" which I know is in the bookstores and libraries at this time. I put in for it at the local library and waiting my turn on it.

I am between Tears of the Desert by Halima Bashir which is a woman's account of her life and the current situation in Dafur. The book is probably one of the saddest stories I've read in a while besides the young lady from Stolen Innocence. But that let's me know there's a lot of wrong in the world that needs undoing.

The other book I am reading is Kimberla Lawson Roby's "Sin No More"; I have been reading this series for a while and I find it quite an interesting read. About a minister who does wrong, has a child out of wedlock, and now has to face the consequences behind it.

I just started "Highland Bride" by Bertrice Small. I am really into historical fiction that has actual historical events and elements. "Multilple Blessing" sounds good too. I'll have to put that on my "to read" list. I just started a discussion yesterday on how many books to you read in a month. I love your input on it, if you have time.

I just finished reading Multiple Blessings this afternoon. It's not bad, although I wish there were more pictures and that the story went further along the years. I think it "stopped" approximately after the sextuplets turned one.

Hi CRSunrise, I have just finished Blindsighted by Karin SLaughter; a gripping detective story. I intend to start on The Remorseful Day by Colin Dexter - his series on Inspector Morse has always been very interesting.

Hi there. At the moment, I'm reading Jeffrey Archer's "Prisoner of Birth". I'm not far into it but it certainly looks interesting.

I'm reading (actually rereading for the fourth or fifth time!) "The Importance of Living" by Lin Yutang. It's a basically a book about the enjoyment of life written from a very positive point of view. What I really like about it is its many excerpts from Chinese literature and Lin's commentary on those classic works -- I think he was a great translator. As a philosopher, I think he's a bit too cheerful, but he does make some good points, too.

I'm currently reading Elijah, the third installment in Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalker series. The series is about different nightwalkers (i.e. demons, vampires, lycanthropes, etc..creatures who walk the night.) Frank has a different take on her demons; they are elegant controlled being who control certain elements, like fire, earth, wind, etc. Elijah is the story between the brave demon warrior and his relationship with the tempestous Sienna, queen of the lycanthropes. Frank's prose can be wordy and sometimes unwieldy, but she can spin a fascinating tale enough to make me read her books.
