Just started reading The Time Traveler's Wife on my Kindle, and I picked up Kaffir Boy from the library a few days ago.

Errr....I have been buried in textbooks and the infamous internal revenue code.

I do hope to finally begin reading Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People.

Wicked Craving by G.A. McKevett

So far so good. I am trying to get into mystery and I think after this book, I'm going to be REALLY into mystery.

Just started "Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean M. Auel. As much as I was looking forward to the tale, I'm finding it a difficult read, as I find myself having to constantly backtrack to make sense of something I just read. And putting the book down means having to backtrack almost constantly, every time I pick it up again.

That's too bad I absolutely loved those books. I read them sooo long ago when they first came out. My niece named her daughter Ayla.

Actually, I think the problems I'm having with reading this have more to do with other problems in my life right now. If I could find the time to sit for several hours and read, I'd likely have no problem with the reading at all. Sometimes it just sucks when life gets in the way of enjoyment.

The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte. Not sure about it yet. It's a literary mystery/thriller, but sort of hard to get into so far.
