Just finished The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub. Not sure what I want to read next, but I'm thinking maybe something by Clive Barker. Possibly Great and Secret Show followed by Everville. Or maybe I'll skip both of those and just read Sacrament.

I'm finishing "Green: How you can be part of the new energy revolution" by Jane & Michael Hoffman.

I just started "Bury my heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian history of the American West" by Dee Brown, which is really cool because I love books about the American West, especially Indian related books.

I'm nearing the end of "Life Sentence" by David Ellis. This is a political based story. It's an ok read. I have about a week left of this one.
And then I will be starting "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer. I am looking forward to this one.

If you like science fiction/fantasy I also recommend Stephen R. Donaldson's The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever. If you make it past the first chapter you will be hooked.
I loved it to. What did you think of the ending? I downloaded the entire series on audio, unabridged. It had 2 different readers but they were excellent!

I'm in the middle of it right now and am very pleased, but then you can't go wrong with Baldacci!

Don't worry scranton, I'm from Jersey and I only heard the term Metrosexual a year ago. You'll like DaVinci Code. When you're done, read his other one Angels and Demons, I liked that one even better.

Okay, I know I said I was going to read a Clive Barker. Changed my mind and took down my copy of Lord of the Rings yesterday afternoon. By the time I set it down to go to bed last light, Frodo, Sam and Pippin were just heading down the hill after their night among the elves and, looking back up the hill, saw the Black Rider at the top. I look forward to their dinner with the farmer and the flight to the ferry, as well as the entrance into the Old Forest.

I'm supposed to be reading The Zanzibar Chest, but can't seem to get into it...maybe I'll shelf it for a while and give it another try next year.

In the mean time I am reading A Respectable Trade. Set in the late 1700s, it seems to be a parrallel story of a man stolen for the slave trade in Africa, and a society lady who marries a shipping owner. It is okay so far.
