I'm with Kimbaby. The book I read most consistently is the Bible. After that, I dabble with The Baby Whisperer for Toddlers, What to Expect the Toddler Years, and Beyond the Big Talk (about teens).

I believe McCall Smith lived in Africa for a large part of his life - and I like the fact that he has little bits that let's you KNOW he knows his localities well. I can't speak for his Africa knowledge, but his Edinburgh knowledge is spot on!

I just picked up a copy of The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand at the library to see why everyone talks about it LOL! So far it's not bad and I see some symbolance in it but....

This was the same reason I read Catcher in the Rye. It was okay but I don't understand why it's considered a "classic".

Dating can be Murder, by Jennifer Apodaca. A nice light giggle.
