Now I'm reading A Pint of Plain (did I post that already?). It's non-fiction, really amusing.
Just looked up The Book Thief. Sounds interesting, so it went on my Amazon wishlist. I still have about 10 books to read but I cannot resist ordering at Amazon when I still have about 5-6 books left. Altho' rereading is a great idea, I have so many books it would take some time to read some of the older ones again.

just finished the second book of the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson...School's out forever.
Read the first book with my son for a school assignment and enjoyed it. for those that have read James Patterson's adult books..The Lakehouse about the kids with wings, these books are enjoyable.

Dreams in the Witch-House by H.P. Lovecraft
Centennial by James A. Michner

I Usually set one down after a bit and pick up the other, pretty odd mix of stories to be reading simultaneously.

Ticky, I love Michener. I've read everything he'd written.

Don't so much get into Lovecraft.

Centennial is one of Michner's best, IMO. I also have the miniseries of 12 VHS tapes. The movie is almost as good as the book.

I'm reading Dead Sleep by Greg Iles. The man can write and it amazes me that he is able to write from a woman's perspective in this book.

Well, I'm taking the plunge into the ever popular "Life of Pi". Sorry---it just is not good enough writing to capture me. I will probably stick with it, now that they have cut to the chase (I skipped 50 pages). I found the anecdotes early on dredfully padded, going on for page after page. I haven't laughed once.
