The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan. Enjoyable, but not my favorite YA fiction. This really seems more especially geared to 5th and 6th graders than older kids. Not a thing wrong with that, just not as captivating as say, Harry Potter or the Inkheart series.

Cell by Stephen King. It's very good so far, but it's sort of the same theme I read in The Stand. I love S.K. So I thought I'd try one of his newer books.

Finished Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach. Each chapter discussed different ways that human cadavers are used after death or different ways they are disposed of, for lack of a better word. Very interesting! Roach approaches the subject in a funny yet respectful way, which to me would be a very hard thing to do. I recommend it, but it's not for the squeamish!

Now I have one of the most wonderful conundrums to have: which book do I read next?

Took me most of a month to read the five books in Jean M. Auel's "Earth's Children" series. Not because they were particularly slow or heavy, but because I was deliberately taking my time because I was savoring every word. According to the back flap, she's supposed to be working on a sixth book, though it's already been eight years since the fifth was written. Of course there were twelve years between books four and five, so I guess all I can do is hope she finishes it before either she dies or I do.

After finishing that last week, I decided to reread Stephen King's "Insomnia". Glad I did because this time through I was able to pick up on a few things I missed (or didn't ascribe importance to) the last time I read it, which was right after it came out. Of course the things I missed first time around probably didn't mean that much because I had not yet read all of his Dark Tower series at that time.

Currently rereading James Patterson's "Women's Murder Club" series because I noticed a 9th one in the store the other week. Couldn't afford to buy it then and hope to get it in another couple of weeks, so decided to reread the first eight in the meantime.
