Salt is on my to-read list, have heard how interesting it is.

Just finished Ann Patchett's Commonwealth and OMG, OMG. I read a lot and it's one of the best novels I've had the pleasure to read this year.

The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore

I recently read, The Fool and wanted to follow up on the (sort of) sequel because of how enjoyable it was to read.  The reason I say "sort of" sequel is because Pocket is the main character in both books.

The Fool was hysterically funny...I'm about 1/3 of the way through and this one isn't quite as funny, but it's still a good laugh.

The Fool is a parody of King Lear and The Serpent of Venice is a parody of both Othello and The Merchant of Venice.

I really enjoy Christopher Moore. My favorite is Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Friend.
His books are great as audio books for road trips

Set another goal for myself. I'm going to try to read 1 book per week.

The one for this week is The Girl in The Spider's Web, the post-original author's death sequel to the Millennium series (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). It's OK. I don't think the new author actually understands the characters. If he writes any more, I probably won't bother.

I like the San Francisco books: You Suck, Bite Me, A Dirty Job--haven't finished Secondhand Souls yet. I think my favorite, though, is the Christmas book The Stupidest Angel (involves a LOT of characters from previous books, but still fun even if you haven't read them.) Come to think of it, I think my brother made off with my copy. Must retrieve before Xmas.

It seems like no matter what book of his I grab next I will be highly entertained.  I am just happy that a co-worker had suggested his works because he thought they would mesh with my sense of humor--because they definitely do.

To change pace here, I am now reading "Harvard Business Review's 10 Must Reads On Emotional Intelligence" and the June 2016 issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.

I am currently studying The Millionaire Fastlane by M.J. DeMarco.



I have read the book once, I finished a couple of days ago and now I am studying the book chapter by chapter.  I am taking specific action steps to apply the book now!

I have envisioned creating a course to study the book so that is my next life project.

I really enjoy books because they can enlighten and inspire the reader to take actions to improve their life.  Books are the bomb!

My "to read" list has just grown exponentially after binge reading through this thread.

I am currently reading "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee

I am disappointed with it.  I feel it goes off in all different directions and I wasn't exactly sure what the point of the story was until about 3/4 of the way through.  Also, I had read "To Kill a Mockingbird" right before (I hadn't read it since high school) and a few things in "Go Set a Watchman" were described in what I remembered as the exact same way as in "To Kill a Mockingbird" (I had already returned TKAM to the library so I couldn't fact check this).  It bothered me for some reason.  Talking to my sister she suggested maybe to tie the books together?  I am not sure you would need to tie them together since the book is set in the same location with most of the same characters.  Anyway, I have about 75 pages left and wouldn't recommend this book....although its possible something fantastic could happen in those last 75 pages that would change my mind--I find it highly unlikely.

When GSAW came out there was some controversy. Apparently the author never wanted it published and it seemed like it was a first draft of TKAM. It was suggested that the author suffered from dementia and was manipulated into allowing the publication. TKAM made me bawl, so I didn't see the need to read GSAW, but I know many people who were upset. They felt a great literary classic had been stomped on.

I'm reading Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. I think the movie was better.

I didn't know that, interesting...It definitely has not ruined TKAM for me, but I think I just had some pretty high expectations going into it.

I like to read a book and then listen to it on audiotape.  Did that recently with the Illiad, the Odyssey, War & Peace and Moby Dick.  Read the Brothers Karamazov twice, doing the audio cd of it now.  Just finished Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by Joyce (much easier going than Ulysses).  And just got started on Lolita by Nabakov.

Looking back, I'm continually amazed at how poor my education/exposure was to these classics.  And I had a pretty decent education.  Trying to make up for lost time.

I have a weird fondness for YA novels from the 1940s-1960s. Through sheer coincidence, this week I happened to pick one up that has been sitting on my shelf for quite awhile--Tradition, by Anne Emery. The plot concerns a Japanese family that move to a midwestern community in 1945, and the reaction of the neighbors. It was fascinating...if you subbed in a Muslim family, it could easily have taken place in the present day. I thought it was very well-done for its time, in that the white family who are the main characters take awhile to come around to the idea of the new neighbors (especially as they have a son fighting in the Pacific).

Just started Descent by Tim Johnston




Just finished Descent.  I wouldn't recommend this book.  I found it very hard to get through and wasn't impressed by anything about it.  The first thing that turned me off was the author's style of writing.  I did not like how he wrote at all.  Also, I have yet to read a book where each chapter goes to a different time and/or different character.  The transitions for this were not well written and at times I found myself wondering who the chapter was about or how it fit into the story.  I figured the plot may be good enough to keep my attention and overlook these things....but it wasn't.  It wasn't until page 280(!!) that it felt like a thriller, but that only lasted a couple dozen pages.  I also think the book went on much longer than necessary after the climax of the story.

Next up....completing the Hitchhikers Guide Series.  I have recently read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" so now it is onto "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe," "Life, the Universe and Everything," "So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish," "Mostly Harmless," and "Young Zaphod Plays it Safe."

Wow that takes me back.  I loved those!

I'm currently reading Anathem by Neil Stephenson.  It's absolutely amazing.  It's a great sci-fi story, and the ideas on consciousness that he develops over the course of the book (I'm about 2/3 in) are really interesting.  It's set on a world (very much like Earth) where scientist / philosopher types are cloistered away for 1, 10, 100 or 1000 years at a time to think deep thoughts.

yay, I loved these books too when I was in grade school.
I checked it from the library for my kid last week.
But she has TOO many books queued up and may not get around to it.
Apparently, it doesn't compare to Last Kids on Earth

I'm about halfway through Hidden Life of Trees.
A great book which may affect how I walk through forests the rest of my life.

Add to her pile.  The Chronicles of Prydain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chronicles_of_Prydain) series is fantastic as well.  It is based on Welsh mythology (the Mabinogion mostly).

Most recently--Crosstalk by Connie Willis. It's not her best, but I'll be honest, it still sucked me in. I was almost late to work because I got to a really exciting part over coffee this morning!

I have gone back to the Flavia de Luce mysteries (tween girl in 1950s England) by Alan Bradley. I got into them when the first couple were out and then lost track of the series in the interval between books.

Also read "Thrill" by Robert Byrnes--an older mystery about the sabotage of a new roller coaster. The prose was what you might call workmanlike but I enjoyed the unusual subject matter.

Just finished  The Affinity Bridge  (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3472342-the-affinity-bridge)
Basically a cross between Sherlock Holmes and steampunk.    It is the first in a series featuring the same characters.

I'm a huge Conan Doyle fan and like Victorian/Georgian settings in general.  Not a huge steampunk fan but it is okay.
It was well enough written that I am moving on to book 2 in the series.  Maybe rate it, say, a 7 out of 10.

Read The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis over the holidays.  Was decent but not as good as I was hoping. 

I'm a computer geek for my job, so now reading three books about different DevOps sections, including The Phoenix Project (which is very good), the DevOps Handbook is on deck, and I got about 35% into Continuous Delivery from the Addison Wesley Signature Series.  That one if very dry.  Good info, but a hugely boring book to read and I work in this field for a living.

Picked up a bunch of books at the library for a donation.  I ended up with about 20 books for $20, so thought that was a good deal.  A Tom Clancy, couple Cara Black novels, some Ken Follett, four travel books about places we may go someday and a few others.  Set my Goodreads goal to 12 for 2017, as I hit 10 in 2016, but that was honestly mainly in the last quarter, so I may find I blow the 12 out of the water.

The Gender Game by Bella Forrest (1st book in the series).

I am about 1/3 of the way through...the author has a writing style that is very easy to read.  It is keeping me engaged and I plan to read the rest of the series.

The Night Bird - Brian Freeman.

A Kindle First book. So far pretty interesting and a very easy read.

As part of my push to read some of the classics, I'm reading Brave New World by Huxley.  Much faster/easier read than the last classic I read - Lolita.  So far BNW reminds me a lot of Philip K Dick's work - amazing ideas with only so-so writing style.
