It had its moments and some books were better then others... I would have taken different roads but alas ... Mr King said no whining in his epilogue

I finished "Salem Falls" by Jodi Picoult...very good but not as good as some of her later books. Still worth reading if you like her books, though.

I finished "Love Walked In" by Marisa de los Santos and "Whistling In The Dark" by Lesley Kagen - both were EXCELLENT!!!

Now I'm reading "Perfect Match", another book by Jodi Picoult. I'm hoping to have all of her books read by the end of the year.

I am in heaven! At my new job, there is a whole shelf full of books I haven't read!! It will give me something to tickle my brain during down times since Harry Potter is taking over the rest of my life (I must have been beyond ADD not to get through these books in middle school).

I started reading The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingslover, but it dissappeared from the shelf. I want to borrow it from the library once I'm done with the Potter books. It's good so far, and this coming from someone who is a huge supporter of missionaries.

In lieu of that, I started reading Jurassic Park. It is very good so far, especially since I am into paleontology. I find the format a little odd, but it is still very good. It gets a lot more into the deep science of it all than the movie did, and I like that a lot.

I read that book a loooong time ago and I remember I liked it even more than the movie Which happens a lot

Well with the school year starting up, i am no longer able to read for pleasure

I am currently reading The Republic of Plato, Beowulf, and Writing a Research Paper in Political Science

They are all not as bad as they seem. I am actually quite enjoying Plato! My reading list is going to be quite long once winter break come

Tomorrow is the release for the new Dan Brown book The Lost Symbol.
I preordered it for my Kindle so it will be delivered in the early morning hours. I will be up since I have a graveyard shift..trying to finish up what I am reading now to be able to start it as soon as I can. I have only read DaVinci Code so am hoping this one is good as well.
I also finished reading The Devil in the White City. Not exactly what I was expecting but a good read nonetheless. I will be putting Thunderstruck by the same author on my 'to buy' list.
I love that fall is almost here..it's my favorite reading season with the crisp coolness in the air, snuggled on the couch with a good book...

That was a trait of Chrichton - he seemed to throw himself into each novel and really dig deep into the science behind the subject, if you liked that try any of his other ones, Airframe, Timeline (my fave) He was a great writer.

Thanks! I will definitely check those out. I also want to try The Andromeda Strain. I saw the movie for Timeline, and it was BAD, so I was averted to reading that book. I'm sure the book is good, but still.

I agree that Timeline as a movie was horrid but as a novel it was delicious!

Another Kindle owner who awoke to find The Lost Symbol already downloaded.

Gotta love that.

Also a Michael Chrichton fan. I have read everything.....but read Timeline 3 times. It's far and away my favorite. Embarassingly.....I even liked the movie version.

If this type of thing appeals to you.....I suggest The Eight by Katherine Neville.

It's not available for the Kindle ...yet, but is available as a paperback.

Awesome book.

Just a quick FYI regarding "The Eight" - the sequel came out the end of last year I believe. It's called "The Fire". I got it several months ago but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I'm not sure sure if it is available for the Kindle yet either...
