I am reading a heavy book at the moment, but I want to finish it.
It turns my stomach at times, but I'm interested nonetheless.
"Anno Domini" by Barnaby Williams

I have read so many many great books over the years, hard to choose one favourite. One that left a positive impression was
"Quantam Carrot" by Leslie Kenton's son...his name escapes me right now.It only cost $2.
Another $2 book I got a lot of value from was "The Paper Midwife" the name of it's author excapes me now too.

I like a book that makes me laugh too.
I am constantly reading magazines, trawling for new recipes. I found some beauties the other day, can't wait to share them with K

"The God of Small Things" Arundhati Roy
"The Good Earth" Pearl S. Buck
"The Giver" Lois Lowry (I read it in junior high, and it still makes me ask and wonder about life and how the world should run)

Right now I'm just reading textbooks and assigned books for school. I haven't had much of a chance to read leisurely since I began college. However, I am finishing up on Flanagan's book, but other than that...

Favorite Books:

The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
Human Croquet - Kate Atkinson
I Know This Much is True - Wally Lamb
The Ground Beneath Her Feet - Salman Rushdie
Jany Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
The Hobbit - Tolkien
The Remains of The Day - Kazuo Ishiguro

Currently reading:

I just finished Kate Atkinson's "Emotionally Weird" which was a really fun read and "A River Runs Through It" by Norman Maclean, which was just perfectly written. I also recently read "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel, which I highly recommend. I just ordered a book of short stories by Kate Atkinson, which I'm really looking forward to reading.

I don't know if I can pick favorites...

"Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte
"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen
"Doomsday Book" by Connie Willis, also "To Say Nothing of the Dog."
"If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by I dunno who...
"Return of the King" (my favorite of all Tolkein's books)
The James Herriot books

I'm not sure what else. I know I'm missing plenty. Do short stories count? I absolutely love "The Lady with the Pet Dog" by Anton Chekhov.

I'm reading nothing now but school books. I have an unfinished collection of Chekhov stories that I'd like to get back to...
