I'm currently reading the latest 2 books in the Redwall Series; Eulalia and High Rhulain. I've been reading the series since early childhood - the series is about a religious order of woodland mammals who try to live peacably in Redwall Abbey surrounded by Mossflower woods. Like most of the people on here I can't wait to read these books to my kids.
I have been wanting to read the Anita Blake books as well as Anne Proulx book - can't remember the title now...

I just started Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts off that I received from REVS in the Winter Wonderland swap! I can't believe she bought me this book- I've been coveting it forever. So far it's great, I love the Yarn Harlot, so anything she's written is enjoyable.

Jan, that book sounds interesting and funny. I think I'm going to have to check it out.
I finished Summer People by Elin Hilderbrand. I enjoyed it very much. It was about a family going through chaos and loss and misery on Nantucket were it's peaceful, and quiet. I tried another book by her, The Blue Bistro, but I couldn't get into it. She has others I want to try also. They are all set in Nantucket, but they're not related stories. We'll see if I like any of the others.
I am now reading Sadie Shapiro's Knitting Book by Robert Kimmel Smith. It's so funny and sweet. It's about a 70-somthing year old woman who wants to publish a book of all her original knitting designs and all the people whose lives she touches. It's great. I found it in the free bin at the library! So cool.
Next, I want to read Agatha Raisin and the Witch from Wyckhadden by M. C. Beaton.
I'm still listening to Carnal Innocence by Nora Roberts. Jeez, that's a long book...16 CDs! Almost done, though. I thing I will listen to The Judge by Steve Martini next.

I did a lot since I last posted. I Finished listening to Carnal Innocence by Nora Roberts and The Judge by Steve Martini. I enjoyed them both very much. I also finished listening to Agatha Raisin and the Love From Hell. I absolutely adore that series. I have started listening to Agatha Raisin and the Day the Flood Came.
I finished Sadie Shapiro's Knitting Book by Robert Kimmell Smith. Great story! I also finished Agatha Raisin and the Witch from Wyckhadden. I had to actually read that one. It's the only one my local library did not have as an audio book. I have finished The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore. Hilariously grusome. I also read The Mysterious Shrinking House by Jane Louise Curry. It's a book for kids 8-12. A very short adventure book written in 1973. I found it in a box at my mother in law's garage. Very cool. And lastly, I finished Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I remember reading it when I was little and wanted to re-read it with my son. It was great. We both enjoyed it.
I am now going to start my reading for 2008 with Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I read around 95 books in 2007 and listened to over 30. I haven't actually counted them all yet. I hope to get at least 100 read and at least 40 listened to.

A while ago I read Maia, by Richard Adams...Awesome book!

Currently reading a book called The Founding Myths, which is basically about historical events that are not completely true yet are still taught in schools as the truth. Very interesting book, so far.

My mom has been bugging me incessantly about the Harry Potter books, so, I'll probably start reading those soon...lol

Still trudging along with Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald. But I did read Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Sock Book and Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd. I loved them both. Not only do they give patterns, they also tell you the basics of sock knitting so that you can plan and design your own ideas. I am on . Sock knitting is my new passion.
Demonica -- I hope you enjoy Harry Potter. It's hard to read soemthing that someone pushes at you...even if they are astronomically popular. I tried reading Maia years ago and didn't like it. Of course, I kept trying to compare the writing style to that of my all time favorite Watership Down. Totally different styles!!! I may give Maia a second chance though.
Jennyloves2knit -- I haven't read I Know This Much is True, but I have heard so many good things about it. I hope you enjoy it. I did read She's Come Undone also by Wally Lamb and that was a very good book. Glad to have you here at KH. Congratulations on learning to purl. Now you can do anything!

I'm still working on Rhett Butler's People. It's kind of a slow read anyway, and the holidays slowed me down even more.

I just started reading The Devil Wears Prada, owing to the fact that while moving back to Uni I managed to leave Sense and Sensibility at home!
I actually left loads of the books I want to read at home cos I just never thought to pack them, I was more bothered about making sure I had enough clothes. Gives me an excuse to go to Waterstones tho. I've been considering Bleak House but a lot of people I know find Dickens hard to read. I can get classics (such as Austen, Dickens, Bronte sisters) at 2 a book - any suggestions?
