I just finished Eat Pray Love... Very much enjoyed some of it, and some of it's philosiphies...but wasn't overall impressed with it. However, there is a chapter on Napoli and she nailed it! I wish she would have written more on Naples!

Also just finished Hot Zone, which I picked up due to online recommendations. Surprised that no one in real life has recommended it to me, with my interests. Intriguing.

Currently reading a Louis L'amour book... The Walking Drum. For my IRL bookclub. Uhm, why???? I don't want to offend any LL fans, but WHAT are we going to discuss about this book??? It really isn't up my alley, either. I've about had it with this BC, I really wanted it to work (for me).

I liked Sena Jeter Naslund's Ahab's Wife so much years ago, until I knew I wanted to check-out Naslund's Abundance, the story of Marie Antoinette, when I espied it on the shelf at the public library yesterday afternoon. I had to return Helen of Troy. It is fiction.
I bought Ahab's Wife used a few years ago at a book sale, but it's still on my "to read" shelf. Too many books, not enough time.

I got up to chapter 3 in Bag of bones and it's losing my interest big time! It is not flowing well...the beginning was great, caught my attention, but now it's lagging. I sure hope it picks up soon..or i may stick it back on the shelf and read about 50 others before getting back to it again.
So i went back to the previous book "Inheritance" by Judith Michael. I had gotten the book for free from someone, but it was missing the last 11 pages! So i ordered a "new" used one from amazon sellers just so i could finish the book.

I love that line tigerlilly, "too many books, not enough time." Looking at my overflowing shelves, I'd say about the same thing. I catalogued 5 shelves last weekend, all double stacked. Only have 16 shelves to go. lol

I just went to the library and checked out THE SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS by Harold Bell Wright. We just got back from Branson, Missouri, and this book was mentioned many times while we were there. I wish it had shown up on my search before we made the trip. I am really looking forward to reading it.

I'm currently re-reading Alastair Reynolds's Revelation Space. Also in the fiction genre, while not exactly a book, I'm re-reading The Tales of Wyre, which is so awesome (in the original sense of that word) that it spoiled me, all other Fantasy paling in comparison.

I just read the Incident of the Dog at Night-time. Excellent book and I strongly recommend it to anyone.

I am starting The Road by Cormac McCarthy today.
