Thanks GB! Sounds like a typical King. I'm going to be hitting Pillars of the Earth next and then Under The Dome...I have too many new books to choose from right now and then a bunch of Tess Gerritson's to re-read. So many books, so little time

I've just read up from where I left off of this thread quite a while back. Interesting reads.

I work in a library, so I have access to a great selection and often have more than one book going at the same time. Right now my light read is Body in the Attic by Katherine Hall Page (a murder mystery). Other books that I'm reading are Time and Chance by Sharon Kay Penman (an historical novel), Everyday in Tuscany by Frances Mayes (headed there in a couple of months) and The Entitlement-Free Child (which is parenting book).

I've written down some of the titles mentioned here to put on hold at work. Great suggestions!

I've been reading "The Book of Negroes" by Lawrence Hill. I absolutely love it, finding the time to finish it is the problem...

I just finished reading The Passage. It was a great book. There will be two more in the series, but they have not been written yet so I will have to wait.

I just started Blood Oath and I am really enjoying it so far.

I'm nearly done with "For California's Gold" by Joann Levy. If you like historical novels this one's for you. The story of a woman and her family heading west is truly a compelling read, and nearly impossible to put down from the very first page.
I highly recommend it, as it's the best I've ever read on this personally interesting subject.

Really loved Richard Olney's autobio, "Reflexions," so now am rereading his first book, "the French Menu Cookbook."
Really underscores the meaning of "basic skills and techniques."

I'm reading "Under The Dome," by Stephen King, but I picked up "Eat, Pray Love" today and may switch for a bit.

Just finished "swimsuit" by James Patterson, and started "the asylum prophecies" by Daniel Keyes, which I pretty much can't put down...
