What are you reading right now ?

Post by jenniwhittaker » 19 May 2009, 00:06

I am always interested in what people are reading right now.... I always read something for fun and something to learn from.

Just finished 'The Great Gatsby' for fun, and 'The Little Book Of Thrift' to learn from.

Both were under $20 and both were fab reads.

Currently reading The Dark Elf trilogy by R.A. Salvatore.
It's my first time reading anything by Salvatore. I might be hooked. :shock:

Forbidden Archeology, by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson. Though I might pick up something lighter to read too.

I am reading Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust, and also listening to the Audio recording of Cranford by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell. I love classic literature. Have read quite a bit of it, but am always thirsting for more!

I'm reading a very steamy sex novel by Jackie Christian
called "Todd Brady--Football Star."

Trust me, if you want to LEARN something, this book will
teach you stuff.

You may never go to Heaven for reading it,

but this book will teach you something. lol!

Last night I read her book "The UPS Guy" (ladies get that one!)
and whenever I don't feel like "heavy, serious" books, find myself loving these smart little sex books. They are SMART now!

I'm reading Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh (hope I spelled that right) and listening to Chocolat by Joanne Harris.
I'm told Water for Elephants is very good.
