I am currently reading a Psychology book "You are What You Think" by David Stoop. It is about how someone's thinking patterns can affect their life and their attitude about different aspects of life. It also is about how someone can maximize the productivity of their thinking patterns and maximize the positive ways to think.


After this book, I have 47 books total on my to do list for books to eventually read.

At least I know the next 47 books that I plan to read.
It will probably take 3 years to read all of those books because I don't have much time to read these books most of the time. For the free time I do have to read these books, it definitely feels worthwhile and time well spent.

I just finished the 11th volume of the Sookie Stackhouse series. I reread the first 8 and then took the last three volumes from my to-read pile.

Now I'm already halfway through "The Doomsday Book" by Connie Willis which is better than I expected even though there's quite a bit confusing language inside.

I'm currently half way through "The City of Fallen Angels" by Cassandra Clare. I'm ready to finish it so I can move on to bigger and better material before I head back to my academic studies.

Picked up "The Moon Looked Down" at the library last week by author Dorothy Garlock. I haven't read anything by her before but may read more of her writing. She has 46 other novels. Amazing how some just seem to crank them out and this one, a novel, seems to be pretty well historicly researched. It takes place during WW2 in a small town in the heartland of the US.

Just started "Relic" by Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child. So far, just into the first few chapters, it seems like it will be one of the better books I've read all year.

Willow is a great book!! So is "Cut" and "Impulse" They depend on what type of books you like though.

Just finished The Big Year by Mark Obmascik. This was the book that inspired the movie which didn't do all that well. The book is quite good. A mildly humorous tongue in cheek look at obsessive hobbies, specifically bird listing.

Not sure whats next, looking.......(usually mysteries)

Reading The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson for my book group. It's an odd book, but I am kind of enjoying it.
