But I'm bringing a bunch of good trash to read at the beach. And I can't wait.

Can't wait for the movie.
Nah, save your money, the film really stinks right up till the ending where they're all singing "Shall we gather at the river"

Although I did like the fact that they used The Doobie Brothers original version of "Black Water" for the opening theme.

claire, licia-

try reading Dee Henderson's books. mystery/romance genre. I really like the interplay between the characters. Some even made me laugh out load. She has a couple of different series.

also try Francine Rivers.

Both are Christian writers, but it's not "in your face".

I could never get past Deuteronomy....
I should try the plain english (easier to read) versions. I think we have one.

lol on the wastewater book comments.....

oh - also started reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Does anyone know if this is a true story?

I've always liked Danielle Steele books too Sizzlin :) I bought a book about two months ago and havent read it yet "in her shoes" by Jennifer Weinner. I've been debating whether to get the dvd first or read the book. I typically like to read the book and use my imagination first, and then see how the movie compares. I think it's time to read that book on my front porch, on a nice sunny day, or even a warm rainy day for that matter :)

My favorite author is James Patterson. I read all his books over and over again.

Right now I'm only reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.

I usally read 5 or 6 books at a time but not this time.

Still trying to finish up the beach books I took to OBX - Janet Evanovich, and one of the Ladies Detective Agency series. Also have to polish off the Stephen Jay Gould book of essays I borrowed from a colleague at work.

When the weather cools off a bit, I wil re-read at least one Jane Austen book.

Here is what I am currently reading:

The Field Guide to Geology by Davis Lambert. Basic geology reading, but a good refresher nonetheless.

Feather River Country Adventure Trails by Tom DeMund. I have made a goal to hike at least two of the local trails this summer, so I am reading this book to decide where to go.

Rockhounding California by Gail A. Butler. This is just to find some interesting rock formations in the local area.
