I just finished Lovely Bones - it was a lot better than I expected based on the blurb on the back. BG84 - I agree - parts of the ending were a little disappointing, and I didn't get a few of the resolutions I was expecting, but it's a beautiful book. Gets a big from me.

I'm now planning on reading Wuthering Heights and Dracula again. Oh, and To Kill a Mockingbird. All big favourites of mine and due for a re-read.

At the moment I'm reading Marketing text books ready for my exams in a couple of weeks

I think I'm the only person I know so far who didn't enjoy The Lovely Bones. I think the author is a fantastic writer, but by about half way through I felt like reading the book was a chore and I just wanted to get it finished so I'd find out the ending. Probably says more about me than the book though.

I've only just started reading Tipping the Velvet but I'm enjoying it so far, and quite a few of my friends have said they've loved it, so I'm hoping it's going to be a good read.

Before I met Mrs. BAW, during those tranquil years of separation and divorce from the first wife, I read EVERY Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy novel, it seems that I have a stack of books just waiting and wanting to be read dating back to Patriot Games.....just no time or bad!

"A Peace to End All Peace", David Fromkin. Very useful in understanding what's going on in the Middle East.

"Wanted man (in search of Bob Dylan)" by John Bauldie. It's very interesting, and it includes what other singers think about him.

Read Tipping the Velvet and liked it...
In the middle of Cold Mountain--it's not the fastest book, and I tend to read quickly, so I've had to slow myself down a bit for it so that I don't freight-train right through it.
I buy lots of books that just sit on the shelves and then I go to the library and get 6 or 7 at a time...and then only read 1 or I decided to not get any library books for a while and work on the books I own. So next up is Donna Tartt's The Little Friend. Has anyone read it?

I'm reading 1916 which is a fictionalized account of the Irish rebellion.

Very good book...

I've just finished reading Big Fat Love by Peter Sheridan. That man is a brilliant writer. His previous books 44 and 47 roses are excellent as well.

And now I'm about to start reading Stupid White Men by Michael Moore

I bought an autograph copy of that when I was in Northen Ireland a few years ago. Have you read anything else by her? I have one or two of her other books (in storage in the US now so I can't remember whether it's one or two!), but haven't read them.
