Just finished, "The Spire". Richard North Patterson. Best of his I've read in a long time. Was sorry when it ended. Trying to get into the one I am reading now. We'll see!

I just finished City of Thieves by David Benioff. I thought it was an excellent book.

I am moving on now to "The Lost Continent"

I think you might change your mind about favorites after you read Breaking Dawn.

Yay! My book came it.....The Girl Who kicked the Hornets' nest! Boy, I gotta say Amazon UK is pretty fast, and for $26 that is probably what it might cost here anyway (Is it? I so seldom buy hardback new releases I've got no idea what it would cost) In any case I would have paid $9.99 to get it on my Kindle. I wish I knew you wanted the second one in paperback, they had that too, for around $6, I could have ordered it for you, LOL!

Really? It's in the theater? I didn't realize that.

I'm reading "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. Wanted to see the movie, but I'll wait for it to come out on Netflix. Thought I'd read the book meantime.

Oh, my mistake, Miguel's Mom. You said you were "rereading" Breaking Dawn and I totally missed that. I thought it was your first time through.

I am reading In The Woods, an Irish mystery. About 1/3 into it, and it's starting to get my interest.

Picked up Kristen Lavrensdatter...it is over 1000 pages, so I've been avoiding starting it! But it is about a period I haven't read about before, 13th century Norway.

Let the Great World Spin authored by Colum McCann just won the National Book Award. The story revolves around a day in the lives of six different New Yorkers who watched Phillip Petit, an aerialist walk between the unfinished twin towers on that one day in 1974. I've had good luck reading books of some of the former winners and enjoyed the excerpt so it's on my list.
