The Talented Mr. Ripley, by Patricia Highsmith. Really, she was so far ahead of her time as a writer.

I am glad to see that I am not the only person that likes to read multitude of books. Am I ADD? I just read books based on my mood? Does anyone else do this? I sure like to know.

1. Human Sigma
2. A New Earth
3. All the money in the World
4. Keys to Great Writing
5. Collapse - How socities choose to fail or succeed
6. Become a better you

And this doesn't even include the magazines. I like my girly magazines.

I prefer non-fiction. It's more interesting to me if I know there is some truth to "it"

The greatest book I ever read...hard to choose.

Yeah, Tigger, I choose books based on all sorts of things, including my mood. I have even been known to walk into a bookstore, or the library, and pick a book because I liked the picture on the cover -- or the author's photo looked nice.



My tastes are so eclectic until I am all over the place. Now that's ADD, too, isn't it?

"Water for Elephants" - couldn't put it down. It was very well written and made me feel like I was a "carnie" living during that time period. It also pulled at my heart strings a few times and had me pondering old age.

My favorite movie is "Fried Green Tomatoes" so I decided to read some of Fannie Flagg's other books. Now I'm on a Fanny Flagg kick. She often has me laughing out loud. Her writing really brings you back to a kinder and gentler time. Her characters are genuine and real. My favorite was probably "A Red Bird Christmas" it was short and sweet.

Have you read "Daisy Fae and the Miracle Man?" That was really entertaining.
