Potter was great. I am interested in Michael J Fox's story but I read Devil in the White City by Erik Larson last year and it is remarkably good. I see it everywhere now in Target and places. I had to convince my best friend to read it, but now her husband is reading it and her sister in law is proposing her book club read it.

It was interesting and well written non-fiction.

I'd say Brindle but only if it deals with a penguin

Have you read everything by Kundera Meggie ?

Very good book I read it last year and I'm gonna go see the movie tonight

On the poll, I voted Harry Potter because it's the only book I read between the ones you named. I think it's the worst episod of Harry that Rowling wrote till now. Only the scenes implicating Voldemort were entertaining.

May I suggest you, if you like fantastic books, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer ? And if you like fiction and romantism, Interview with a vampire, by Anne Rice.

I'm struggling through Life of Pi...

Angels and Demons is okay, if you ignore the writing. Keeps you awake, at least. I'm reading Pride and Prejudice right now along with about 2343 other books. I have them all on my bed, too. There's never enough time...

edit: Damn, that was smiley heavy... *refrains*

I don't read much Just no time. I read DaVinci Code a year or two ago. Then I went out and bought the other Dan Brown books. While there are similarities between DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons, I did like the latter a lot. Would like to re-read DaVinci Code again, at least before the movie comes out in May... may have to hit up Mom-in-law to borrow the book again...

Oh, and never read the Harry Potter books, just not really that interested , but I have seen the movies with my daughter And I don't recognize the others, so I voted for Michael J. Fox
