I usually read more than one book at a time; right now I'm reading one of the Amish fiction books by Beverly Lewis, "Shady Grove" by Janice Holt Giles, doing a Bible study by Beth Moore called "The Patriarchs", and whatever other reading material I run up on.  I am a firm believer that one cannot have access to too many books.

I'm halfway through Dead to The World, by Charlaine Harris. I was in need of an easy reading, was curious to see what Ms. Harris was about and I thought that seeing the original book in a store here was a sign. I had to buy that book. I did.
I discovered that it is the fourth of a series (Sookie Stackhouse), and I haven't read the other three. Not a problem, she's good at keeping you updated on the main character's past.
Am I enjoying the reading? Not *that* much.
Next time I'll read she's compared to Laurell K. Hamilton I won't be able to stop my head from shaking as in disbelief.
Her characters are vague. It is a light-hearted reading, period.

Continuing to plod my way through The Prince, and Other Writings by Machiavelli, after setting it aside for almost a year.

A couple of Doctor Who novels a friend loaned me, to tide me over until the next season starts on SciFi.

I'm also about to start a reread of Conrad's Heart of Darkness (the horror, the horror) and Melville's Benito Cerino so I can do a comparative analysis of the content and themes. (Not homework, just a personal project of mine.)

I'm reading "Island" by Richard Laymon. As brilliant as usual.
Next I'll turn my attention to Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood.
Later I'm going to the bookshop to fetch a copy of A Box Of Bunny Suicides, which is going to be a present. If you don't know Riley's books, get one. They are a real must

Excellent book! I'd also recommend his short story collection, After the Quake, if you haven't read it already.

I'm currently reading Teaching Lolita in Tehran, a memoir by an Iranian woman, about attempting to teach American literature during the days when Khomeini's totalitarian government was forming. Interesting stuff...some of it rather hard to read, given the persecution and rampant killing that went on during that time.

I just finished cry wolf by Patricia Briggs. it is about a alpha male werewolf and his Omega werewolf mate. It was good. i give it a 8.5 out of 10.
Insanity is a fun state of mind. I can amuse myself and have my friends wanting to get me a straight jacket and a padded room.
