I can see why it was popular in high school, it's an interesting format for a book. Different that the typical novel.

Yes, this was a good book. Did anyone see the movie?

I finished Dear John the other day and loved it! I will have to see the movie when it comes out on DVD. I am now starting the first book in the Percy Jackson series. A bunch of the kids in the elem. school are reading them, and I'm interested in seeing what they're about. I've read that they are being compared to Harry Potter.

Decisions, decisions! Morelli for me. I love these books. Funny, when I read Kevin mentioned Sandra Bullock as Hilly in The Help(I LOVED this book), I have always pictured Bullock as Stephanie Plum!

I will set up a sticky for a separate discussion thread as soon as I'm done here.

I will also make an announcement on this week's discussion show about what we are doing.

Ladies and Gentlemen....start reading.
Thanks Kevin!

OK, I just finished my favorite book I've read this year (so far):

Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean: How a Generation of Swashbuckling Jews Carved Out an Empire in the New World in Their Quest for Treasure, Religious Freedom--and Revenge
by Edward Kritzler


I found this nonfiction piece to be exciting and fascinating. I had no idea about how much the pirates of the Caribbean (and the trade routes between the New and Old Worlds) were involved in international rivalries and battles. Pirates weren't just robbers of the seas, but there were very much financed by Monarchs and big businessmen. In addition, it is amazing how the Inquisition tried to spread along the Caribbean to wipe out any non-Catholic enclaves. This book is a must for anyone interested in pirates, little known Jewish history, international intrigue, or a new perspective on a relatively unknown time in history. Lots of fun and filled with enlightening facts and true stories.

Now, I'm on to Disney War, by James B Stewart.

Hi Kathee. The Nook must be a New England thing.

I just finished The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks and I really enjoyed it! I've started another one of his novels titled The Choice. I'm really excited to read his other books.
I also finished a book titled Nice Girls Don't Get Rich by Lois P. Frankel, PhD. A great book!
I'm hoping to find an out-of-print book called The Last of The California Girls, so hopefully when I journey to half-price books soon, I will be able to find it; I've heard nothing but excellent things.

I've been getting books together for my next Disney trip which is rapidly approaching. So far I have my GRE Test Prep for Dummies book, The Last Song, and The Choice (both my Nicholas Sparks)

I ordered a bunch of bargain books from Barnes & Noble (these were cheaper than on the Kindle, and I rationalized that I can make some money back by selling them at a garage sale!); the first one I am reading is "Mommy Millionaire" (http://www.mommymillionaire.com/mommy-millionare-book/). As a retail business owner, a lot of this book is very interesting to me; even though it focuses on people who create their own products (whereas I resell items I buy wholesale). Anyone who does sells their own handmade items and wants to build their business would find this very helpful!

New to the DisBoards


HI! I've been listening to the podcasts and now have ventured to the boards! Heard about this thread on the podcast so I must jump on and put in my two cents worth.

I'm currently reading Charlene Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. Have the twilight series to read next. Of course when a new Evanovich comes out I have to put everything down and read hers.

Free Kindle Books

Amazon just posted this link on Facebook: http://www.amazon.com/b/?node=2245146011

I love loading up on the free classics....even if I don't read them, I just feel smarter with them on my Kindle!!

I just finished reading "Dear John" too , it was so good
I almost don't wanna see the movie , because I know it probably won't live up to the book.

As far as Evanovich/Stephanie Plum go, Morelli all if the way for me. I'm not liking how Ranger has been pursuing her lately (just finished book six). Even though Morelli's track record is awful, I think he really cares about Stephanie.

I'm reading Fantasy In Death by JD Robb/ Nora Roberts.

The In Death series is a favorite of mine. But anything by Nora is a winner to me. I don't just have a TBR (to be read) pile... I have a TBBW (to be buried with) box. And Naked in Death is #1 on that list. The hubby knows that if I die first and he dosen't put my books in with me... I'm coming back! LOL
