I read anything and everything by Grisham, Barbara Kingsolver, Jennifer Weiner, Patrick McCabe, Nora Roberts, Maeve Binchy....and those are just to name a few. I read voraciously, always have.

My latest find has been author Diana Gabaldon. I am making my way through her 5 novel "Outlander" series, currently reading "Dragonfly in Amber". I honestly don't think I have ever enjoyed characters and story lines as much as these books by this incredible author Has anyone read anything by Gaboldon?

I read Outlander a few years ago and was surprised at how much I liked it. (I'm usually not much for historical stuff ... but somehow I'm apparently a sucker for time travel stuff - especially if there's romance involved. )

I have the second in the series, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I love that book, I love John Irving. I have his latest book Until I Find You but I never started it. I used to read so much more than I do now.

I got the Bob Woodruff book In An Instant today, hopefully I will start it over the weekend.

Another Gobaldon fan! The 2nd one is good...I am 3/4 way through it. I didn't think I'd like it especially since I struggled thru (but ended up enjoying) The Time Traveler's Wife. But I am going to Ireland/Wales/Scotland/England this fall and will see so much of the areas that they mention and talk about in the book...so much history there, so that makes it even that much more enjoyable for me. I am going to read all the volumes in the series.

I'm currently reading Four Fires by Bryce Courtenay, and it's fantastic.

I've just finished a book by the author Arnaldur Indridason, I guess the name of the book would be "Women in green" in english. Oh it really was a good book. I liked it very much

Right now I got a lot of books that I want to readXD

Has anyone read 100 Years of Solitude? I've heard from others - some of them literary types - that it's choppy, jumps all over the place, and is hard to follow. I loved Love in the Time of Cholera, and was looking forward to 100 years. Should I give it a shot?

I just finished "The Last Juror" by John Grisham over the weekend. Was so disappointed when I came to the end of the book Swear I haven't read a story yet by him that I haven't loved!

i just did a massive research project for a school class on "all quiet on the western front", a book about soldiers in WWI, and i think it's one of the best books i've ever read. i can't do it justice here, but trust me, i'm glad i chose that for a three month research project over something else


other recent books:

-pride and prejudice - that and a tree grows in brooklyn are my favorite books of all time

the year of magical thinking - i got this out because my grandfather died a month ago and i've heard this is a great book on death and dying, and it's meant a lot to me

i'm currently reading hillary clinton's autobiography, because if she's running for president, i want to make an educated decision as to whether i hate her or not. unfortunately, i'm going to miss voting in 2008 by five months


also reading stupid "chick lit" books to make up for all the hardcore thinking i've been doing for the past few months
