message 1: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (heysus74) | 97 comments In the second half of January, I finished Parnassus on Wheels, The Three-Body Problem, Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living, and Zeroes.

I'm 40% through with The Shadow of the Wind on my Kindle. I keep putting it aside and picking up other books, even though I've enjoyed what I've read.

I started on In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom a couple nights ago, which I'm reading on paper, and today I plant to start on Killing Floor, my first Jack Reacher novel.

Susanne (heysus74) | 97 comments Britany, I just picked up 84, Charing Cross Road from the library. It's a lot thinner than I was anticipating.

Claire, my nephew and I are in the middle of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire right now.
