What are you reading?

Stephanie

I may not like the cold weather, but it sure gives me an excuse to wrap myself in a blanket & read till my eyes start to blur. I’m happy to say that I am reading much more since buying an eReader. My current read is the 1170 page hefty tome that was so rough on my wrists, it was the inspiration to make the purchase in the first place. (The hardcover version was donated to my local public library.)

Since obtaining a Kindle, I have been on a Stephen King marathon having read UR, then re-read The Talisman, then Black House, and am now reading Under the Dome. (I really like it.) I’ve also read Little Bee by Chris Cleave, The Gift of the Magi by o. Henry, The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, and at least a dozen “samples” of books I have since deleted.  And since joining the social website for book lovers called Goodreads, I have at least 50 more samples of interesting and highly rated books to peruse after this one is finished. Though today I did briefly contemplate re-reading the unabridged version of King’s The Stand in honor of the recent announcement of it FINALLY going to the big screen. (I’m secretly hoping that Gary Sinese will be called to revisit his role of Larry “Baby Can You Dig Your Man” Underwood though I doubt it.)

So what are you currently reading?

  1. What a great day to answer this question!! I just got Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss in the mail today! It is the sequel to The Name of the Wind…completely Wonderful, Thoroughly Engaging, “believable fantasy.”

    Funny thing, though…and perhaps this is related to a childhood habit of putting my library books in the order I wanted to read them… I am saving this book. I really want to read it, but to each book, the right moment. Am I the only one?

  3. I just finished Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections, which was great. I have started Naked by David Sedaris, which was set aside for me to complete Kitchen Confidential, by Anthony Bourdain. I’d recommend any of these books.
