I'm re-reading a short story by Stephen King right now called the Langoliers... I heard there was a movie at one point but I've never seen it.

Also slowly re-working my way through The Mists of Avalon.

:]

I recently finished reading "The Shack", and plan to read many times! Just.plainWOW.

Currently, I'm reading my favorite book of all time, "Helter Skelter" about the Manson murders. If I'm not mistaken, this is my 15th time LOL. No, I'm not obsessive, I'm not! I'm NOT!

I read the Shack and loved it too. Rooms by James L Rubart is very similar. I bet you would like it too.

It's not the murders that occurred that fascinate me, it's how Vincent Bugliosi put together a case like that, with the little shreds of evidence. And, it's one of those books that when I read it again, I ALWAYS discover something new.

I think I was an investigator in a previous life or something LOL

I thought The Friday Night Knitting Club was a good book, but it's kind of heavy. If you are a mature reader it might be alright, I know when I was 12 I usually read things several years above my age range. If you aren't into "Boohoo" books, maybe not.

When I was a pre-teen, my FAVORITE FAVORITE books were The Song of the Lionness Quartet and The Immortals Quartet by Tamora Peirce. Fantasy with young female heroines. I still read her books today. She knows exactly what to give young adults.

The stories in her books though are very engaging and addictive. All of her fans are not so patiently waiting for her next book since she left us with 3 cliffhangers in Echo in the Bone.
I think I'm going to take a break from it for a while and try to come back. I feel like I should really like it, I just have to get over that initial hump and get into it. I think one of the draws for me is that there are so many books out in the series already. I HATE reading a book in two days and then having to wait a year for another one to come out.

They dramatize these books so much. I guess it took place in the South, also.

He was the prosecutor. His other books are excellent too. I love his method. Legal pad after legal pad filled with questions; questions for every contingency. He works for weeks on his cross examination.

I'm an absurdly fast reader and it takes me way longer than 2 days to devour a Gabaldon book lol...that's another reason why I like that series - lottssaaa pages. :D
