I'm halfway through THE TAKING by Dean Koontz. Can't decide yet what in the heck it's all about, but it's a good read so far...

What are you currently reading?

"The Frontier Army 1865-1890" by Robert Utley, going to a Grand Army of the Frontier muster next weekend and thought I would re-read it again.

"Little Boxes: The Architecture of a Classic Midcentury Suburb" by Rob Keil.

It's about the Westlake District of Daly City, which is just South of San Francisco. Some of you may be familiar with a song in 1962 by Malvina Reynolds called "Little Boxes". It was an anti-suburban folk song about this very neighborhood.

Nothing currently.

But I recently finished The Shopaholic and baby. IT's the latest in that series. Very good. :)

ThatsMyGirl, I love reading anything by Jodi Picoult. She spoke at the annual Brady Author Symposium last year at our local college (Catawba College). I had not read any of her books until she was announced as the speaker, so I read My Sister's Keeper and Harvesting the Heart before hearing her. After reading those books, and hearing her speak, I have worked my way through almost all of her books. I have not yet read 19 Minutes, but one of my friends just finished it and really liked it.

I just finished Sweetwater Creek by Anne Rivers Siddons (one of my favorite authors) and I liked it very much. I am in the middle of Judge and Jury (James Patterson) and so far it is not one of my favorite Patterson books.

Next on my list is The Love Wife by Gish Jen. She spoke at this year's Brady Symposium and I read her book Mona in the Promised Land before attending. I'm not sure if I liked it or not-it was different. She spoke a good deal about The Love Wife so I decided to read it. I understand from her remarks and from several of my friends who have read it that it is written very differently from the norm in fiction. My friend, who is probably one of the most well read people I know, said that she was not sure what to think of it, but she was glad she read it. We'll see!

blacklab1973 --

What is Marley and Me about? I had that book recommended to me a long time ago on this forum, and it is on my "purchase" list, but I forget what problem I was having with Misty at the time which prompted someone to recommend it to me...

I just finished Cesar's Way. I don't like him, but I had to read it. The book was more like an autobiography of Cesar's life. The celebrity name dropping got boring.

I just finished reading "Marley and Me"

It's an essential read for any labrador owner :). I liked it but it wasn't a gripping tale or anything. Just a pleasant read.


I've taken to calling my dorky lab pup "Waddy" which is what the kids in the book called Marley.
