I'm reading "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe. It is really good.

I just finished reading: The Secret Under My Skin by Janet McNaughton.  It was decent.  I would give it a B-.  I certainly would try another book by this author.

I've just finished Ted Dekker's Red and have now started on his book White. It's an okay book so far but the idea of a seperate reality that comes alive during dreams is somewhat mind boggling to think about.

I just had to buy A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for a class. I haven't read it before.  It is a very long book.  Have any of you read it?  I hope it is interesting.  I can't believe I was never assigned to read this in high school.  It is one of the most popular books so surely it is good.

LOL!  I'd suggest Trout Fishing in America, but you'd probably run into the same problem :-)



Don't got much trout in our area, but I'll give your book a try. I usually fish for bass and crappie. Any crappie books you can recommend?

I'm currently reading Simone de Beauvoir's Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter.

I love this line:

"She was trying to get rid of a religious hangover."

[COLOR="Navy"]Any book by Danielle Steele is a crappy book, in my opinion :-)

Right now I am struggling through Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I had the book mentioned to me by several people then Oprah chose it for her book club, saying she could not put it down so I was real excited to read it. I just cannot get into this book and I am halfway through it. I keep thinking that any moment I will get to the “can’t put it down” part. Now I feel like I have to finish it since I am halfway through it anyway.

I had a similar experience with "Trinity" By Leon Uris. it took 300 pages, but I did finally get hooked.
Follett is a good author, but I like his spy novels better.

I am currently in the middle of two books:   The Executioner's Song by Norman Mailer, and In Search of [SIZE=-1]Schrödinger's Cat by John Gribbin.  So far, The Executioner's Song is making my head hurt more!  ;)

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.
