One of the books I've read more recently was "Caballero" by Jovita Gonzalez and Eve Raliegh. OUTSTANDING book!!! Romance, intrigue, deception, humor - all the makings of a great book.

Default So many books!

Currently:
Roger T. Ames "Dao De Jing"
-- Great for those already introduced to the Dao, but I think it would be a bit daunting for the uninitiated
William Least Heat-Moon's "River-Horse"
-- My bedtime reading for the past three months, very pithy and leaves a good thought in my head
Petfinder's "The Adopted Dog Bible"
-- Preparing for my next companion
Recently finished:
Carl Hiaasen's "Nature Girl" -- fun read, as his always are
Ted Kerasote's "Merle's Door"
-- A must for those that love dogs
Thomas Steinbeck's "Down to a Soundless Sea"
-- great views into old Big Sur characters
Linda Greenlaw's "The Lobster Chronicles"
-- nice read, got us into that Maine idea.

I agree with your hubby. I don't care for the Dark Tower series, either.
And, much as I love his horror stories, I love the Dark Tower series even more! Have read and reread the series close to a dozen times since the final volume was released in 2004.
Just finishing a couple of Peter Straub books and next up on my reading list is the newest Dean Koontz, Relentless to be followed by James Patterson's Swimsuit. (Then I think I'll reread the Dark Tower series once again!)

Fast Food Nation, the book, was quite compelling and very informative.

Today I watched the movie of the same name. Here's a warning: Read the book first, else you won't get the movie. The movie is mostly a fictional screenplay that looks at the lives of illegal immigrants who end up working at the meat packing plant in Greeley, CO (in the movie it's "Cody" Colorado). There is very little of the book in the movie, so if you don't read the book, it just looks like a depressing movie about some people getting used and abused by everyone.

I just finished "Person of Interest" by Theresa Schwegel. Very slow until page... 300!! And it doesn't have 350 pages, pffff. I wouldn't finished it if I wasn't on vacation.

Now I'm reading "A Grave Denied" by Dana Stabenow. (One of Kate Shugak's novels). Slow starting, just like the rest of the series. Let's see what happens.
