Well while we were on vacation the 1st week in July I decided to finally try the Sookie Stackhouse Series. My boss noticed one day that I was reading them & sold me all 9 of hers for only $20 all I had to buy was the next to last one. So thanks to my boss, I am now on book 5: Dead as a Doornail & will probably be starting book 6 in a couple of days.

After I completely read all 10, I've got a couple of Harlequin NASCAR series books to start & a couple of other various book laying around waiting for me to start reading them.

This must be a trend... I just finished reading the 10 Sookie Stackhouse books! Loved them! Can't wait to read them again! Now I'm reading Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich for my book club.

I was reading "Tilt a Whirl" by Chris Grabenstein. I didn't like the main character so I'm having a hard time passing the 1st chapters.

I'm reading "World War Z" by Max Brooks. Very interesting.

I'm currently reading a book called "War" by Sebastian Junger. A book about the war in Afghanistan. So far it is a good read and very accurate based on my readings right now.

Currently reading Atonement by Ian McEwen. The writing is tremendous.

Late last week I finished "Where the God of Love Hangs Out" by Amy Bloom. It is short stories, and at the end I wished there were more. I found it "better" than "Love Stories in This Town", by Amanda Eyre Ward, even though I had read her other books and enjoyed them very much.

Now I am reading Chris Bohjalian's "Secrets of Eden". Some of his books I have really liked and a couple of others not at all. This one is okay. I plan to finish it but not rave about it unless it changes in some way, which I doubt, because I think all the characters are in place.

I've reserved at the library the new biography of Karen Carpenter. I'm not that familiar with her and probably would not have sought it out on my own but it got a very good review in the NYT Book Review section last weekend.

Excellent book, because of that book I've read just about everything she wrote.
Wish I had a good command of French as I would love to read the original version versus the translated version.
