Just started " The Lovely Bones" and so far enjoying it. I love the way the author is able to describe with few words the feelings of the different characters.

Behind the Bell by Dustin Diamond. If you are a Saved by the Bell fan, I strongly suggest reading this book. Diamond goes after everyone in this book and reveals a lot of good stuff.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Hmmm, okay.
If I weren't so tired in the evenings I would have finished Last Argument of Kings by now but I still have half way to go and my Amazon wish list is getting longer and longer and longer and longer lol

Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver

How to Roast a Lamb by Michael Psilakis

Odd choices for a vegetarian, huh.

The Psilakis books is an amazing cookbook, and really the story of his life and his family. Two Thumbs Up.

I am about 1/3 done with the new Tracy Chevalier book Remarkable Creatures. anyone else reading it? Why cant I get excited about it? I dont know if its me or if its just a dull story. After reading over 25% of this book, I just cannot get into it. Please let me know what u think.

So I've just started to try to read The Da Vinci Code because I never did before, and I wanted to see what the hype was about. OMG...the Dan Brown's writing style...it's like YA material. I never knew his writing was so simplistic! I don't know if I'm going to be able to get into it--I'm ab out 10% in (Kindle length) and I'm bored already. :/

Why did everyone love it so much?

There is a children's pop-up book, lolagranola, of King's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I stumbled across a copy at Barnes & Noble, and added it to my collection of his works.

So, what do you think of Under the Dome? Of his works, what is the closest to which it compares? I think some have said, The Stand. I have had the book for several weeks now, but have been reading titles for my neighborhood book club. You know, I found my copy of this work at SAM's no less, and it, too, is a first edition. Eighteen bucks, I think I paid.
