I have not been here to this part of the forums in a while. I'm reading James Patterson's I Alex Cross and re-reading some of Jan Karon's the books from the Mitford series. If you have never picked up any of the Mitford books I say do it. You won't be able to put them down. They are inspirational, funny and just plain charming. I go to my library's book sale and stock up.

Well, I am re reading all the Nancy Drew books. Mostly because they have large print and I can see it. I can't read regular books anymore. I also am getting books on tape from State Services for the Blind and right now I'm listening to a Miss Manners book. There is not a very good selection of large print books, I've noticed.

Lisa--do you enjoy romance novels? Someone at church brings them in to place in our book/magazine collection box (we donate them to the hospital waiting rooms) and I have noticed that the Harlequin Intrigue have "large print" written on the cover.

As for what I am reading--I just finished reading Lamb, a novel written from the point of view of Biff, Jesus' childhood friend. It is totally irreverent and hilarious. It does contain profanity and sexual situations, but nothing pornographic. The author makes many biblical references and states flat out in the afterward that the book is not intended to be a theological statement of any kind.

My priest listed it as a favorite for light reading--and is in agreement that if a novel which is unabashedly tongue-in-cheek can make a person rethink their faith, then maybe the faith needs a little help. I highly recommend the book and give it two thumbs up.

I've been reading the Nero Wolfe books by Rex Stout. Our local library gets rid of books that aren't read, so I had to order them from amother city.
