Hmmm. Like I said, sci-fi is so not my genre, but my daughter might like it. She read all the Narnia books and through 4 in Harry Potter.

She might like it based on what you said. She's not even close to knowing what its like to read overdone concepts.

Thanks, Ben!

If she likes Sci-fi, get her the "Ringworld" books by Larry Niven. They are incredible.

Recently finished books:
"Ringworld," "Ringworld Engineers," "The Ringworld Throne" and "Ringworld's Children" by Larry Niven. Very good Sci-Fi, as is usually the case with Niven.

"Ender's Game" and almost all the sequals (eight books so far with two on deck) by Orson Scott Card. This was some of the best and some of the strangest Sci-Fi I've ever read.

"Lord of the Flies" by William Golding. Absolutely amazing book.

"Hearts in Atlantis" by Stephrn King. Certainly not his best work, but far from the worst. I actually enjoyed it much more reading it for the second time.

On deck:
"Eldest" by Christopher Paolini.
"The Lord of the Rings" again, for the eleventy-first time.
"The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King.
And, to get geared up for July 21st (will it ever get here?), the "Harry Potter" series.
Almost forgot...
"Animal Farm" and "1984" by George Orwell.

On deck:

The Plot Against America (Philip Roth) (Lindy gets elected president and the nazis win)
Thunderstruck (Eric Larson) ("true crime story" of Harvey Crippen & how he was captured through new invention - the wireless.)
The Historian (Elizabeth Kostova) (some kind of vampire novel that got great reviews)

The Watchman? I saw that at Target and it caught my eye, was planning on going back to pick it up. Have you read it yet?

Yeah, that's the one supposedly about Joe. I read so many books I rarely buy hardbacks. I have quite a few reads stacked up right now but decided to read Roots again. Every now and then I revisit.

No way, I'm far too cheap for that! I put my name on the list at the library long ago though.

For sure I read In The Heat of the Summer and probably a couple more. I remember that one because in the end the reporter leaves Miami and goes to work for the Greeley Tribune....

Anyone read any Daniel Kalla? First time read - Rage Therapy. So far it has been able to maintain my interest.

Yes, I read that one and The Analyst, loved both of them. Love his style, very "to the point" and exciting.
I'll be reading a couple more by him this summer for sure.

I can't wait until July 21st. I didn't start reading the Potter books until last summer. So this is the first book I have had to wait this long for. I had a little wait for Halfblood Prince but nothing like this. I never thought a kids book would get me as hooked as these. Her writings are amazing.

If July 21st were tomorrow it wouldn't be soon enough!

BTW - They're not exactly "kids books" any more.

I think I'm actually jealous of Paris Hilton ... I would love to have 3 weeks of peace and quiet to read 10-15 books. And the WHOLE daily paper.

I would take notes on the books I read to cement the info later. I'd prolly select a few textbook-type titles on topics I'm interested in as well as a few novels.

I hit the library book jackpot today but damnit if I wasn't at the lake and didn't get the message in time. 'Lean Mean Thirteen' is in for ME! Woohoo! Can't believe I'll be getting it so quick!

I could have already had it done or most of the way there if I'd gotten the message earlier. Damnit.
