What book(s) are you reading right now?

Recommended Posts

I love getting book recommendations, so I thought I'd start this thread up again here at the new farm.

What book(s) are you reading right now? Or, are any you've read recently that you enjoyed? Do share!

I've got two started right now, On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan and Paul Auster's The Brooklyn Follies, which I'm especially enjoying so far.

Great idea to restart this thread!

I recently finished these, and loved all of them:

"The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan

"Cable News Confidential" by Jeff Cohen

"How I Learned to Cook," edited by Kimberly Witherspoon

Right now I'm reading:

"Don't Try This At Home," also edited by Kimberly Witherspoon

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon

The latter is especially fascinating, and it's a very easy read. The author writes the main character, an autistic 15-year-old boy, in the first person. The boy is trying to "play detective" and solve the murder of the neighbor's dog.

^ Teresa, my daughter gave me that "Dog" book to read. She LOVES that

guy! I'll probably start it this weekend.

The last really excellent book I read was Secret Life of Bees. It was an

instant favorite. Then I gave it to Melissa and she loved it, too.

Sharon, I like James Patterson, too, and have not read one of his in ages.

Got to get reading!!

Barb, I read The Secret Life Of Bees a while ago. I loved that book. If you liked that you should read her book called "The Mermaid Chair", that's another good one.

Oh, you would love this James Patterson book I'm reading. It's yours when I'm done with it.

Toni, I've heard great things about "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time". Let me know how you like.

I'm currently reading "Diary" by Chuck Palahniuk, he is a great writer.

Also, "The Golden Compass" by Philip Pullman. The movie comes out in December. That trilogy is THE best.

^^ The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime is fantastic. I loved it.

Gina, you might have given it to me!

^ My friend Debby just recommended Pompeii to me. I've always been

fascinated with Pompeii. It's definitely on my list.

I recently finished John Lennon: The New York Years by Bob Gruen (given to me by a dear friend). Very insightful....with more of a personal twist on the lives of John & Yoko. I enjoyed it a lot.

Also loved "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz - words to live by.

I just finished three books on the way home:

"Hello Darlin'" by Larry Hagman

"Just a Guy" by Bill Engvall (haha, this will be the 5th time I read that one).

and "You Can't Fix Stupid" by Ron White (didn't like that one at all, but I managed to get through it). Now I'm going to read Jeff Foxworthy's book (yeah, I'm on a "Blue Collar" kick. LOL)
