Going to start the Twilight series again - want to see if the books are better than the movies, or if the movies are better than the books.

One of several of the Icelandic mysteries by Arnaldur Indridason. The first one I read was Jar City and I'll probably read all of them.
Good reads. I enjoyed the ones I've read.

I just started "Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I'm loving it. I keep snickering out loud. I've been saving it for a long weekend. I'm having a read-binge.

Have you read any Christopher Moore? Those will make you laugh, too!

I don't think I've heard of Christopher Moore. Will have to look him up.

Shrek recommends "Lamb" by Moore be read first. I loved it too, he has read more of hisbooks than I have.

I'm reading British Brides, a collection of short story romances that take place all over England and Scotland from the 1300's to the present day. Yes, I know it is not something most men would read but I'm 68 years old and quite secure in my masculinity. I'll tell on myself and declare that I'd rather read a scintillating romance than any other genre. Who's my favorite? Why Jane Austen of course.

Finished Midnight Rambler (meh. I like Swain but this one didn't do much for me.) and started on The Complete Calvin & Hobbes.
