Re-reading Don't Wake Me At Doyles By Maura Murphy. It's a remarkable memoir. It's incredible.

Another Simon R. Green, "Deamons Are Forever." Love his writing, just picked up his Hawke & Fisher books, I'll be delving into those soon. I just spend a wad of cash at the bookstore, so I have many delights waiting for me for the next couple of weeks.

Gosh...I used to hate to read because I was forced to read books I didn't like when I was in school but now I always am reading something! I can't keep up with more than one books so I only read one at a time! Over the past two months I've read the following books and all of them were fantastic!!

The Twilight series, all four books,
The Host also by Stephenie Myers...not about vampires!
Downtown by Anne Rivers Siddons
Plantation by Dorthea Benton Frank
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

Gotta show my love for "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts. It might be a more guy-ish book (the author escaped from an Australian prison, went on the run to India, surviving and starting a free clinic in the Bombay slum, and wrote a book about a man who escaped from an Australian prison and went on the run to India, surviving and starting a free clinic in the Bombau slum...) I've bought two copies at full price to give away so far. Lovely vision if India, and surprisingly introspective, given the adventurous subject matter.

I am reading The Angel Experiment (Maximum Ride, Book 1) by James Patterson and I am also listening to I, Alex Cross by James Patterson. I did not realize until just this second that they are both Patterson books as they are very different from each other.

I loved the Maximum Ride series, great fun. I really enjoy James Patterson, but he can't seem to keep up with me
