I just finished The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor and now I'm reading the second book in the series "Seeing Redd". He is supposed to be coming out with a third but we don't have a release date yet. This is a YA series and I am really enjoying it.

I've set aside the Last Cavalier by Dumas, for now. Too much for me to get through, all of the 18th century French history,etc...
I've started "I am Legend", the original novella. A bit more depressing than the movie.

I read "I am Legend" also and found the movie to be unbelievably different from the original. Even with the alternate ending - although they may have come a little closer to the tone of the book - it's still a far cry from the author's version.

My SIL is a published author so currently reading one of her latest books. Actually, she participated in an anthology titled, "The Spinster Brides of Cactus Corner." The time was set in the late 1800s in Arizona, during the Wild West era. Her contribution is "The Spinster and the Lawyer" which focuses on suffrage in regards to women during that era.

My parents got me 5 of the seven Harry Potter books in paperback for my birthday this year (Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince), so I've been reading them. I'm up to "The Yule Ball" in GoF right now.

Finished "Seeing Redd" and now want to read the third book. I certainly hope it comes out soon. Now I'm reading "Dark Tort" by Diane Mott Davidson. I've read quite a few of hers and they are fun, light mysteries.

I'm nearly finished with Demons Don't Dream by Piers Anthony and I just picked up The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry, so I guess that will be my non-fiction read. It's somewhat of a primer on writing poetry, something I have never really delved into but always really wanted to. It looks promising.

Reading "John Adams" by David McCullough. Excellent book if you are seeking history of our founding fathers, etc.

I was going to read another Piers Anthony book but remembered I had one by Diane Mott Davidson that I wanted to read and that should go pretty quickly, so now I'm on Tough Cookie. I'm also reading The Ode Less Traveled by Stephen Fry which is a delight. It's on how to write poetry.

That's very good reading. One that's definatly on my list. I'd like to read all the Biographys on the founding fathers. I really want to know what the founding fathers thought.


I'm currently reading Brad Thor's " The Last Commandment". It's excellant if you like political thrillers. Tom Clancy like. He has a new one coming out July 1st called "The Last Patriot". The saying is he might get labled on a death list like Salman Rushdie did with the "Santanic Verses". The "Last Patriot" will be like the Muslims " The Da Vinci Code".

I now have three fiction books going. The latest book in the Pendragon series, Raven Rise, came out today so I have to read it. My son started it this afternoon and he was bemoaning the fact that he has nobody to discuss it with so I decided I'd best get to reading.
