I am reading Hide and Seek by Fern Michaels. I've read several of her books this summer -- quick and light reads. I'm enjoying the series.

Janet | 1 comments I am rereading the Sara Paretsky novels about V.I. Warshasky, an intrepid but vulnerable female detective who lives in Chicago. I love the descriptions of Chicago and V.I.'s courage and humanity.

Carol Nain (focus2me) | 18 comments I'm reading "Girl in the Mirror." It's a guide, if you will, on Mothers and Daughters in the Preteen Years and beyond. My daughter just turned 10, and oh boy, what a difference one more digit makes!

I am reading Book 5, "The Black Circle" by Patrick Carman. It is in the 39 Clues series -- mysteries for children primarily between 8 - 12 years old. My nieces also read these books. I have really enjoyed the books in the series and look forward to each new book!

Kathie Just started The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. There has been A LOT of discussion on this book and author at my house and it's time to actually read the book for myself.

Carol Nain (focus2me) | 18 comments Creative Counterpart by Linda Dillow.
The catergory is Marriage. One who ponders these pages will be refreshed by a delightful profitable discussion of marriage and homemaking. It will confirm (not tear apart, as society does) the role of motherhood and wifehood to a level of dignity and significance.

Kathie Just started Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon. I heard about this book on the Books on the Nightstand podcast (which I highly recommend) and was really eager to read it. The book explores the concept of self-identity in three stories.

Carol Nain (focus2me) | 18 comments I am now reading "Life's Too Short to Fold Your Underwear, by Patricia Lorenz. I like to alternate a heavy deep read with a light read.I am finding it to be hilarious.

Carol Nain (focus2me) | 18 comments I just finished reading the book, "Becoming a Godly Wife," by Gil and Dana Stieglitz.
It is a book that I will purchase so that I can work on these areas at a slow pace. There is so many different subjects covered in this book that I will need to dissect it and work on their recommendations for the rest of my life. For example, the simple act of being an active but detached listener. It explains how men and woman are wired differently. I could work on this aspect alone for months before I master it. But, boy, the rewards do seem amazing enough to put the work in to gain a more spiritual and strong relationship with my husband and gain him as a soul mate, not just a paycheck that doesn't pick up his socks!

Carol Nain (focus2me) | 18 comments I'm going to read, "Handle with Care," by Jodi Picoult for my November book selection. Anyone else interesting in joining me?

I'm reading "The Day the Falls Stood Still" by Cathy Marie Buchanan. It is debut fiction. The book is well written. Good character development and good story.

Kathie Just starting The Anthologist by Nicholson Baker. This book was discussed on the Slate book podcast and sounded like a great combination of literary and humorous.

message 22: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Marie Buchanan (cathymbuchanan) | 3 comments I'm reading After the Falls by Catherine Gildiner. It's a coming of age memoir. Her first memoir covered her remarkable childhood in Lewiston NY, a stone's throw from Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls ON is my home town and hence my interest in Catherine Gildiner's work. Her books are funny and clever and poignant.
