What are you reading?

I have the lastest book from my favorite author Anne Tyler called Noah's Compass which I have been saving for the "right moment". I have vacation coming up and I have it all planned. I'll paint my living room by day and reward myself with Anne Tyler in the evenings.

Franklin and Eleanor An extraordinary marriage by Hazel Rowley. I heard an interview with the author on NPR and the book sounds great (I have only read about 2 pages so far). FDR and Eleanor have always fascinated my so I was so excited when I heard about this book.

Finished "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" a few weeks ago and now 1/4 of the way through "The Girl Who Played With Fire". "...Dragon Tattoo" took a bit of getting used to the writing style but once you're into it (about 100 pages) it actually goes pretty quick...hard to put down! "...Played With Fire" is the second book in the series and I'm loving it just as much as the first.

I saw that one... the cover looked intriguing, but I was on the way out of the bookstore and didn't stop to look at it. What is it about?

'Girl with a Dragon Tattoo' is effectively a crime novel isn't it? Keep meaning to watch the film

Textbooks!!!!

When finals and graduation (finally!!) are over next week I will reward myself with "Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard to Think Straight About Animals" by Hal Herzog. I think it looks deliciously intriguing.

I just finished reading the "Saga of the Seven Suns" by Kevin J. Anderson. The seven books make up a remarkable piece of fiction. Kevin J. Anderson wrote a lot of the Dune sequels and spin-off books.

I am currently re-reading the Inheritance Cycle that starts with the book Eragon. Each new book is better than the one before. I'm currently awaiting the fourth book in the series.

Yes, they are a series of crime novels....with very complex and interesting main characters.

I plan to watch the Dragon Tattoo movie (the one with English subtitltes). I hear it's excellent but can't imagine they could have put the details in the movie that are contained in the book. Still, it could be good...
