I'm reading 'Little Children' by Tom Perrotta, because I wanted to read the book before I see the movie (I Kate Winslet.).

It's very good! Funny, a little disturbing, and a quick, good read.

I'm reading some hot Human Anatomy and Histology text books. The Photographic Study of Human Anatomy by Rohen is a must read!

Not yet. He's coming to Seattle next week and will be making a pitstop at my workplace, so I'll be buying it there.

He's only signing a limited amount of books, but the event organizer told me that those of us active in the workplace book club will have priority for signing. Whoot!

Star Trek: Titan - Taking Wing

The first of a series with Riker as captain of the USS Titan, set after the events of Nemesis.

It's pretty good so far.

The Birth House by Ami McKay

About a midwife trying to keep the tradition in a New England town when a doctor comes in with the latest and greatest in OB care for women and promises how much easier it will be for them.

It really speaks to me. I'm not that far away from birthing and nursing babies

No sex in it so far though, that's a bit disappointing to me. LOL

The Boy Who Fell From the Sky by Ken Dornstein.

Ken's brother was one of the victims of the Pan Am disaster over Lockerbie, Scotland. The book is about Ken's journey to make sense of it all. So far, anyway ... I don't know what'll happen after page 50 yet.

It's excellent so far.

I started reading Pride&prejudice and i'm about 50 pgs in - it's funny and it's only the really old-fashioned language that's a little tricky to follow but as i've read a few other books of that time like Jane Eyre, i can just look past what they're saying at times and get the point!

It's definitely an enjoyable read

I finally got U2byU2 last week so i've started reading it too&i can't get over how moving those first few pgs are! It's incredible reading all the detail about Bono's troubles with his dad&the utterly devastating circumstances of his mum's death

It was v interesting when you read about how they were so fortunate in crossing paths! It's amazing to imagine if Edge's dad had decided to go and live in Manchester instead!

But, hey! We're sooooo lucky that they DID meet!!!!

susanp6, I have the same problem with Austen and some other classics. I tend to ususally read lighter fare, and sometimes struggle a bit when I have to use my brain while reading.

I read Pride and Prejudice this past year and really enjoyed it. I found it a little easier to get through than I had expected. Either that means I liked that one more than others, or I'm finally getting used to the writing!
