I am currently reading "Stalemate" by Iris Johannsen. This got me to wondering what all of you might be currently reading. As I have stated previously, reading is my favorite pasttime. I can't imagine a day going by without my reading something.

It's good, but "A Book of Five Rings" is better, I think.

I am currently reading, "Lisey's Story", by Stephen King. I checked it out from the public library like half a week ago. And so far I have only gotten to chapter 2 or 3. But it is so good and I can't wait to finish it to see what will happen next. I am like you, reading is also one of my favorite pasttimes! I love reading!

I am a Stephen King fanatic (belong to his book club) and I really enjoyed Lisey's Story. It is filled with the suspense and surprises that one usually gets from a King novel. I started reading him back in the 70's when I was so scared I had to leave the lights on all night.lol

Well, I'm reading "The Witness" by Julie Garwood. I have a lot of interests in what I read. I read almost anything, about everything. Also, I try to read just a little bit of the Bible everyday. It's always great to have some words of wisdom to guide you though the day.

We're on the same page. Sure, I read some worthwhile stuff, but much of my reading is purely for enjoyment and escape. After all, with all the bad things happening every day you have to have something!

LOL. I love reading in the bath tub too. How do you manage to keep your book from getting wet? Try as I might I'm sure to leave some little marks on it :(

I'm currently reading Hannibal Rising by Thomas Harris. I've been wanting to read the book before I see the movie. I'm afraid I'll be disappointed in the movie though. I know after I read Hannibal and saw the movie I hated the movie. I hope they haven't done the same to Hannibal Rising.

I started reading Hannibal Rising yesterday, but only read a couple of chapters. If you would tell me that it gets better I might consider giving it another try. Guess you can tell I'm not much of a Hannibal fan. When I saw Silence of the Lambs it freaked me out, and since then I have left Hannibal alone. I don't know why because I love horror.

As of this morning, I'm between books. I finished James Patterson's Maximum Ride: School's Out. Now I have three books left from my last stop at the library to choose from. I have to decide if I will read John Saul (Nightshade) or an author whose work I've never tried. Her name is Lisa Jackson. I picked up two books by her. One is called Shiver. The other is Deep Freeze. They sound pretty good, going by the jackets. Has anyone ever read her stuff?

Right now I am reading a book called Devil's Corner, by Lisa Scottoline. I think it is really interesting and I'm not bored with it at all. I really like the characters and the content of it. I can't wait to see how it all comes together in the end!

I'm currently reading On the Natural History Of Destruction by W.G. Sebald. It's extremely good, but also upsetting as it's a non fiction book about the air raids on German cities and towns and how the German people dealt with them. I just finished reading a passage about the zoo in Berlin which had me in tears. But as I said, it's a very good book.

I am about to finish Talk to the Hand by Lynne Truss. It is a book about the lack of manners here in The States and in Britain. It is a good read. It is funny and thought provoking at the same time. It isn't a long book so if you pick it up maybe you should pick up another book at the same time.

I'm currently reading a book called Contest written by Matthew Reilly. It is quite a fast-paced book and it has been recommended by someone here on myLot. :)

I haven't held a book since March- when I graduated...(school books, that is). Just yesterday, someone sent me an e-book. It's entitled "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D. Wattles. Some friend gave it to me. I think it's gonna be helpful now that i'v just started on my journey after school. I really haven't read it much...just breezing through...skimming it over. It's kinda tiresome to read it onscreen than in the papers u know. E-books are kinda helpful but nothing beats the printed ones.

Since I publish a newsletter/e-zine for stories and poems it seems I only have time read the submissions for that.

I'm currently reading Green Mars by Kim Robinson. I love reading, but it's hard to find the time lately. Too much stuff to do at work, at home, and at school. I'm swamped, and the book is at least a week overdue at the library. I hope i can finish it soon... Green mars is engrossing. It's the second part of a trilogy about the colonization and terraforming of Mars. Political battles, environmental terrorism, philosophical battles, it's got it all. I recommend everyone remotely interested in sci-fi or astronomy check it out.

Well I just finished re-reading "The Donovan Legacy" by Nora Roberts. It's a great series of books dealing with cousins who are hereditary witches and how they function in the real world. I am thinking of re-reading the Harry Potter books so that when the new one comes out I have them all fresh in my memory. I also want to find the books that the Dresden Files are based off and read those so will be reading something soon.
