ErinCBC (booksin140) | 236 comments Let's bring Twitter's Friday Reads to GoodReads, shall we? What is everyone reading right now?

I'm reading Paying for It by Chester Brown. It's fascinating, but also a bit creepy! Paying for It by Chester Brown


Marianne | 94 comments I'm reading Open House by Elizabeth Berg. Just started and so far I like it.


Nicole | 12 comments I am reading Red Riding Hood MTI by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright by Sara Blakley-Cartwright.


Petra | 432 comments I'm reading The Little Stranger, which is gothically eerie.
I'm listening to Forgery of Venus while in the car. It's an interesting parallel-universe type of story about a modern day artist who "becomes" a 16th century artist (actually becomes that person) by some sort of strange mind/soul meld thing that hasn't been explained yet. Odd and yet intriguing. The main character is a bit of a dud, though. Kind of whiney and "woe is me".

Great idea, Erin!

Been a reading diet for the past couple of days (darn that nasty sinus flu thing), but hope back on the band wagon shortly. Before I got sick, I started Aztec by Gary Jennings Aztec by Gary Jennings

Magdelanye | 103 comments The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Comments about this book comparing it to Special Topics in Calamity Physics intruiged me, so I finally tracked down a copy and began it Friday. So much for housework this weekend.

Rosina I am reading The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld. Interesting read, liking the historical info about New York City in the early 1900's.


CJC (CCCalgary) | 63 comments I was reading Throne of Jade on Friday - great books when you are looking for a quick read. Dragons in the 1800s - who could ask for more?!
