What are you currently reading?

Not involved in any books at present. I've been doing a bit more writing  these days so lots of my alone-time is spent in that way.

Fisch, 46

Right at the moment I've bundled up all my library books for the bookmobile tomorrow. I'm re-reading CLOSE QUARTERS by Angela Thirkell and ROYAL ASSASSIN by Robin Hobb. I've just finished this week's TIME and NEWSWEEK and have started reading THE NEW YORKER. This evening I plan to start Katie Hickman's DAUGHTERS OF BRITANNIA: THE LIVES AND TIMES OF DIPLOMATIC WIVES and Caroline Stevermer's WHEN THE KING COMES HOME.

Jill, 60

I just finished reading The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan. I haven't started a new book yet. I'm catching up on my magazine subscriptions: The Sun, Yankee, National Geographic and Smithsonian.

Laura, 36

Beautiful Losers by Cohen. Not that good.

Alias Irrelevante

A magazine and I can hardly keep up with that!

Tracy, 24

Kennedy's The Four Freedoms (about the US during the depression and W.W.II), Angela Thirkell's Close Quarters, an English mystery called Blood Sinister, by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. I just finished Rebecca Well's Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisters for my book group. In the car, I'm listening to Scared Crows.

Just about a gabillion things for school. Plus on on Real Voices of Boys (what boys really think about life. IT's great) and not one but two books on The Murray Vampires and the killings in Florida in...1996(?) But the very last thing I read was Maxim. God i love that magazine.

Melodi, 19

I'm not really reading anything at this time. Kinda feel pathetic about it.

Felicia, 35

I am reading five things right now, nothing holds my attention long so I read a bunch of stuff at once. "QBasic Fundamentals and Style" "Windows 2000 for Power Users"... for school, blah
"HTML for Dummies"... so I can build my site (yes I am a geek)
"Practical Solitary Magic" to become a better witch and
"Fellowship of the Ring" because, again, I am a geek.

Maggie, 22

The Complete Idiots Guide to Organizing Your Life

Russell, 36

Mostly a lot of periodicals - the New Yorker, Newsweek,  newspapers.  I'm about to start Liza Dalby's novel The Tale of Murasaki.

etoile, 20

I usually have 2 or 3 books going at once...with that said, I just finished "Skipping Christmas", by John Grisham. It was hilarious. Now, I'm going to continue "A Widow For One Year" by John Irving.

Jennifer, 19

I am currently reading "If Chins could Kill" by Bruce Campbell

NIcole2, 20

The Oxford History of the Classical World, Gone with the Wind (from 1939 ...not quite a 1st edition), Penmarric...also rereading Lord of The Rings...that is all I can remember, offhand.

age unknown, parts unknown

'bridget jones' diary'. it's pretty good.

Becky, 16

Son Rise by Barry Neil Kaufman. It is a true story about his son who was diagnosed with Autism and how his family "reached him". There was a movie done of it once that I would LOVE to get my hands on.


I am currently reading "the Prayer Of Jabez. I received it this summer and even though it is a small book I want to be able to concentrate when I read it. It is very interesting.

Marci, 56
, OH    USA

Hotel New Hampshire, by John Irving... and I've been trying to read Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea, but it's a struggle...

Johanna, 18

"Diary of a Texas Birdwatcher: Connie Hagar of Rockport"

Reba, 50+
Silver Spring

I just finished the latest book in the Left Behind series. I believe this was number nine in the series, something like that. Anyway, this has been the most enthralling series of novels I have ever read. The first book started when the true Christians of the world disappeared. The series is going completely through Tribulation. The books are very accurate, biblically speaking. If you are not a religious person, like myself, it still makes for one hell of a read.

Aaron, 22

I'm reading my email, man.

A-Dog, 19
McMinneville, OR   USA

I'm reading a book called "Traitor's Moon" by Lynn F-something. Its a fantasy novel, the third in a series.. a good series so far, im enjoying it.

Talia, 24

You're question! lol ;) really though, nothing. I don't have time to read right now, I'm busy too much.

Dianne, 17

"Countdown" by Frank G. Slaughter, a 1970 fictional drama about the US space program. You've going to have to check the used book shops if you want to find a copy of this one.

Jonathan, 19

A computer screen.

Karen, 22

Till We Have Faces-A Myth Retold, by C.S. Lewis

I am reading a book about the Mustang Ranch in Nevada. It is a legal house of prostitution. Its a really interesting book about the women who work there and why they work there.
