Lost Symbol in next up on my reading list, though it might be as much as two weeks before I get to it because I'm currently in the middle of rereading King's Dark Tower series. (I know, I know. I just reread it less than a month ago. But I have been (re)reading lots of my Stephen King books lately and this just seemed the perfect time for a reread. )

Stephen King rocks.I love his books and have read all of them.I couldn't name one favorite,but some books of his I liked a whole lot are The Regulators(written as Richard Bachman),Needful Things,Cell,The Stand and It.He has a new book coming out called Under The Dome...can't wait to read it!
I am not reading anything at the moment,but I have many favorite books I have read(and re-read)
1. The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons...theological arguments aside,these were 2 incredibly riveting books.I read Da Vinci in one night because I couldn't put it down.
2. Memoirs of a Geisha...beautifully written and a sensual and compelling read.I loved the descriptions of the kimonos and I adored the movie.
3.A Tree Grows in Brooklyn........a classic and beautiful story,everyone should read it
4.The Little House...it's a children's book but it is so lovely that I had to include it.
5. All of the Little House on The Prairie books
6. All of the Harry Potter books
7. Megan McCafferty's Jessica Darling series
8. Anything by John Grisham
9. Anything by John Nance
10 Anything by James Lee Burke

Love it, was one of our best book club discussions. Keep trying to tell my D to read it.

Currently I am reading Lion Among Men, the third installment in the Wicked series. Just finished Son of a Witch (#2), and have Wicked waiting on my nightstand!

Wow, I haven't been in here in a while!

I have just finished "The Next Thing On MY List" (good book), "By The Time You Read This", "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" (stupid book) and "A Reliable Wife" (another disappointment).

I'm currently reading the book "Holly's Inbox"... it's a years worth of a girls emails (the whole book is written in email format). Pretty entertainnig.

What did you think about Shutter Island? Did you read on here that it's going to be made into a movie? You may have even been the one telling us about it, I don't remember. Anyway, I can't wait, and I don't see many movies at all.

I'll have to check into this. I love psychological mind games.

The Invention of Air and the latest Patrick McManus mystery...polar opposites. Like them both so far.
