Just finished The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and Where Men Win Glory, The Odyssey of Pat Tillman by Jon Krakauer.

I enjoyed both; Krakauer is one of my favorite authors.

I just picked up Brave New World by Aldus Huxley. My daughter read it for a class, and wanted me to read it. Not sure why I've never read it before. So far (page 3) it's killer!

The Kindness of Strangers is horrible it goes into so much detail about child ponography , sex addiction , drug addiction , pedofiles . It was just something i dont care to read and thought i might warn anyone who is thinking about reading it . sorry just not my cup of tea . now reading vanishing acts by Jodi Picoult much more my cup of tea .

Sounds like a book for the "worst book or author thread"

I'm reading "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks.

I know.... I have his latest one and haven't read it yet, but I know I'm late in reading this one. And why? 'Cuz when the book first came out, rumor on the net was they were already working on a movie of the book and Miley Cyrus is going to star in it.

That was enough for me to toss the book back on the shelf and read a ton of other things just to get the vision of Miley Cyrus outta my head..

Sparks writing is SO predictable (to the point of boring me now) but let me just say, if he chooses to kill the dog in this book (like he did in another book of his), I'm done with him. Seriously. Kill all the people ya like, but knock it off with the animals. Just my 2 pennies.
