After I finished DaVinci Code I started reading the books he wrote before that one. Good writer.

I got Stephen King's "Cell" for Christmas. Looks good. Can't wait to start it.

If you have kids or like reading childrens books...I am reading "The Door To Time" by Ulysses Moore to my daughter. The writing is just so-so, but it is an interesting adventure. It really doesn't end. There is a second book coming out in June 2006.

Made in Detroit: A South of 8 Mile Memoir by Paul Clemens. What to say? I'm horrified at what has become of my city. I can only hope that one day it'll reinvent itself.

The Other Side of Me by Sidney Sheldon. If you read his novels (The Other Side of Midnight, etc.), this is his autobiography. Besides being an entertaining read, it's a great example of someone who manages to mess himself up time and time again and still succeed.

Yahoo, I just picked up the book "WICKED" by Gregory Maguire (on a shop, no less!) I saw the play last year and can't wait to read the novel.

I haven't had much time to "read:, but I found some CD books to listen to on the way to and from work. So I get about an hour and a half of reading in per day. Right now I am working through the Cronicles of Narnia.

I was reading the "Winning by Loosing" book by Jillian the trainer from Biggest Looser, but my 2 weeks were up and I had to give it back. I will probably purchase this book as it was a good one.

I just finished "False Memory" by Dean Koontz. It was the first book I read in a while that was a real page turner. I didn't want to go to work or anything. I just wanted to stay home and finish that book!

Corrie, when you finish Wicked, be sure to pick up Son of a Witch.
The author is a genius.

I have recently read a series of mystery books by Anne George. It's nice, easy reading, with humor. They are about two sisters (age 60+), and how bad things seem to find them. It's good reading.

Call me crazy, but I LOVE resets!
Yes, even cosmetic resets.

Jan,

I'm not sure if you were asking about the Koontz book but I'll answer in case you were. It was not scary at all. It was very suspenseful but there was no supernatural or horror element to it.

I'm reading "The Giver" by Lois Lowry for my English class. Excellent writing, interesting, but kind of disturbing....

NYKat, yes I was asking about the Koontz book. My husband loves him but I don't like horror or gore. Thanks. The Giver by Lois Lowry is a wonderful book, and you should be disturbed by it. There are also two other books which Lowry doesn't call sequels but are follow-ups.

I been reading Suze Orman's The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke. It's been awesome so far, answering all my important questions regarding retirement, savings, credit cards, the works. I'm also starting on a new book called Stones From The River by Ursula Hegi, about a dwarf's life in World War II.

I just finished reading "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Interesting concept, darn dull book. I also recently finished Leaving Cecil Street by Diane McKinney-Whetstone. That one was very interesting.

Just finished "Undomestic Goddess" by Sophia Kinsella. Great characters. You feel like you are part of the book. The only downfall is the story is very predictable....but you don't really have to think when you read this one...so it kind of takes you away from the "real world". Fun too!

She wrote another one I want to read titled "Confessions of a Shopaholic". Her titles are so ME.

I am reading Lawless Lovers by Dixie Browning.

Pretty good book. It has two small books in one. The first was good but she just cut it off at the end. Made you want it to continue.
The next book I am just starting. They do carry the story and make you seem to be a part of it.
And of course, she makes up that MYSTICAL lover. Wow to find someone like that.
But then he would probably be prettier than me and that would piss me off and I would shoot him or something.

Donna,

I read Confessions of a shopaholic. It was OK, it was just a little hard to swallow because of the lead character's profession. I have Shopaholic goes to New York but haven't read it yet.
