I try to have one fun book and one that will teach me something going at the same time.

I grabbed the first book in Terry Brooks' High Druid of Shannara series Jarka Ruus; I also have Manda Scott's Boudica, Dreaming the Eagle queued up.

For some pseudo "brain food" reading I picked up The Introvert Advantage (How to Thrive in an Extrovert World) by Marti Olsen Laney.

Tomorrow morning, I pick up the new Harry Potter book, so my Costco books will be put on the back shelf.
I read
NIGHTS OF RAIN AND STARS a few weeks ago!
It's a really good book. Set in Greece ( lol...so it had to be good).

wasabi, I buy my books from Costco also. Such good prices. I also forgot to mention that I am also reading Everyday Italian by Giada De Laurentiis. Now it just need to decide what to cook out of it. So many good recipes.

I finished reading the books in my previous list. Here is what I am reading now:

First Rider's Call by Kristen Britain (Although it is not scary this one kept me awake one night last week. I read it before I went to bed and then could not go to sleep.)
Flashback by Nevada Barr (This one is starting out to slow for me, I doubt I will finish this book.)
Flyboys A True Story of Courage by James Bradley

I'm about 2/3 of the way through The DaVinci Code. Very cool story! I can see why it has caused so much controversy but I'm just reading it like the fictional story that it is. I recommend it.

Have you read The Scarlet Feather? (Maeve Binchy)
I love her books I have all of them. At the moment I'm reading Shelia OFlanagan's Too Good To Be True.
Have you read any Cathy Kelly? She is in that same style as Maeve.
I love reading its so relaxing and its an escape from everyday life!

Just finishing Steve Berry's "The Third Secret" in reading to myself. In reading aloud, we're finishing up "The English Governess at the Siamese Court." Both excellent!
