I am starting to use GoodReads, just to use their To Read list. I cannot keep up with you guys on this thread, and the library read list doesn't display the info as well.

(I am finally starting to get interested in Jordan's "New Spring: the Novel." For the first half, I actually found the About the Author more interesting than the work!

I have so many lists around my computer that I finally decided to do two things with the list of books I want to read.

1) I keep a 12x18 monthly calendar near me and I write the book titles on it. The calendar is too big to misplace.

2) This one takes a bit more time but it really works. I send myself an email listing books. Then I move those emails into a folder cleverly titled "To Be Read."

Yeah, I am weird.

The Autobiography of Henery VIII With Notes by His Fool, Will Somers, a novel. By Margret George. Finished her book about Cleopatra before this book. I like her historical fiction.

No, weird would be if you sent yourself invitations to read the book with your calendar!

I am Reading Death Spiral by James Boedeker. Great book!!!! He nails the the military lingo as well as what it is to be a vet. Best book I have read in a while.

I started "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett last month. Still struggling through it. Will finish it before Christmas I hope. I read a little here and there, but it makes me almost nod off.
So I started reading "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Philippa Gregory and have been engrossed in it. She is a good writer. It also helps that I just finished the entire series of the "The Tudors" on Netflix before this. So, I can imagine the characters in the book, which makes it more interesting than trying to conjure them up by myself. I will miss this book when it is over. One of the better one's I have read all year so far.

About halfway through "Destruction of the Bismarck" as we speak. Excellent book so far.

3/4 the way done with Death Spiral. SEAL trained Robert O'Leary delivers extreme justice to the bad guys. I love this book.
The best $2.99 I ever spent on a book from amazon
