I am reading Dreamweaver MX 2004 The Missing Manual and The Elusive Truffle by Mirabel Osler. I've just finished Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl.

I hear that! I've read it quite a few times myself. I'm actually listening to it on cd in the car right now.

Danielle Steel's THE KISS
Danielle Steel's IMPOSSIBLE
THE DA VINCI CODE (re-reading before the movie comes out)
and
THE MAGIC OF OZ ( I'm slowly re-reading the whole series)

I have the new James Patterson book beside my bed too... I'm forcing myself to read all these others plus a few library books first.

Okay, be warned I'm a book-a-holic now I'm on the Wild Baron by Catherine Coulter... I read pretty much everything, from Stephen King to Julie Garwood, to J K Rowling... if it catches my eye, it catches my brain lol.

By the way before I forget, has anyone ever read Cooking for Dummies, sounds basic but it comes in handy... another one I like is Cooking for College Kids (dating back to my own college days)... a little off topic but just thought I'd mention it...

American Gods by Neil Gaiman was a good read, very intelligent. Also Anthony Bourdain's 'A Cooks Tour' is a staple bedside companion.

2 weeks ago I finished the last book in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and now I am on the 2nd book in the Narnia Chronicles and it's every bit as good as I remember it being!

The Return of the Wolf by Steve Grooms.
An excellent book on the history, howling, breeding, and hunting strategies of wolves as well as the misunderstanding of the wolf.
