What Are You Reading?

I just started Ya-ya's in Bloom and I have been reading The Summer of the Bees. I don't imagine I will want to read at the castle but I intend to catch up on some past reading while I recover.

During my recovery, I read all my "series" books. Jan Karon, The Harry Potter Series, and The Dark Tower series by Stepen King. Now I'm reading a fascinating auto-biograpy for the 4th or 5th time called "When Rabbit Howls." Anyone who is familiar with a woman who calls herself "Truddi Chase" and saw her on Oprah Winfrey will be familiar with the stroy. She is actually a "Multiple" Meaning she has mutliple personality disorder (what at one time was referred to as "split personalities.") This is the first book ever written by a multiple compared to others written by their therapists. She is an amazing survivor. I just wish I knew what has become of her/them as she/they had refused to integrate into one person.

This book gives a fascinating glimpse into how the mind works, especially when one really considers all the layers that makes up a person's personality.

Happy Reading Everyone!

what I'm reading at the moment

I like to read pretty much anything, but right I am reading Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook, The Wedding and Nights in Rodanthe, are my favorites so far.

thank God, I thought I was going to be the only J.R. Rowling on the list. I am a speed reader, and reread every book in the Harry Potter saga within three weeks of my castle visit. I know Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is due out on July 16, as I already have one on reserve! I am currently reading my way through the Lemony Snickets. I'm kind of like a kid that way. Oh, O also read the FBI thrillers by Catherine Coulter. Good stuff!
My cell phone has a "countdown" feature and I've set it for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Since the American (sorry, ugh!) edition is the one that will get here for the pre orders, I am having a friend send me one from London.

I've only found Lemony Snicket #1 here in English (don't care to read it in the Hebrew translation) and I love it! I swear, when I was a kid I used to turn all those soupy "it all comes out right in the end" children stories into Lemony Snicket takes in my mind. Too bad I never wrote them down!

I remember reading a Nicolas Sparks book that was excellent. Called something like, Message in a bottle, at least messages in bottles was a big part of the story. It was very heart touching but with such a sad ending. I prefer happy ending but that one was a very good story. Right now I'm reading Mutation by Robbin Cook. He is one of my favorite authors. A few others are, Dean Coontz, Micheal Crichton, John Saul, Tess Gerrisen, Sue grafton, Jeffery Deavor, Robert Bakker,Carl Sagan, Michael Palmer and of coures Ray Bradbury to name but a few. Reading has always been one of my most favorite things to do. I keep at least a half dozen books beside my bed waiting to be read. I read on average two books a week and have done so most of my life.

But I also read every Discover Magazine, Science News, Popular Science and Readers Digest. Along with a few others some times that I don't subscribe to. Isn't reading wonderful?

I also love reading Encyclopedias, I started reading them when I was ten. I thought they were one of our families most valuable possesions. But then we never had a TV. I still don't have TV in my home.

I am currently reading, The Collected Works of St.John of the Cross, particularly "The Dark Night."

I have been invited to join the Third Order Carmelites (Catholics who already have a vocation 'married or single', but would also like to be a nun/brother as well). Well, St. John of the Cross is one of the major saints and inspirations of the Carmelites and I was curious about this particular man and his influence on the charism and spirituality of the order. This book is absolutely breathtaking and it makes the past 2 years of hell make so much sense! Goodness the peace it has brought to my soul is amazing!

As far as other books, I have to say that I pretty much read about my faith; I can't even tell you the last "normal" book I read... and I don't know if that is good or bad . I homeschool my children, therefore as their religion teacher, I feel that I always need to be prepared for any question they may have so this has been my "required" reading lately.

I am reading Beach Music right now by Pat Conroy (also wrote Prince of Tides which was awesome) I want some really good books for my favorite time of the year...( especially this year since I figure I deserve it after just going through the hyst crap and being stuck in "the jungle"!

Just finished "True Believer" by Nicholas Sparks. I thought it was well worth reading. Also just finished this morning "Velocity" by Dean Koontz. It was excellent!

I stocked up on libarary books before my surgery, and really enjoyed the following:

Hour Game by David Baldacci

I can definitely recommend these books.

Good wishes to everyone - Fawn
