Christine | 35 comments It's been really quiet around here lately so to get the conversation going, I thought I would ask what everyone's reading right now.

I'm in between books at the moment as I just finished reading "Winter Sea" by Susanna Kearsley. I found the book while browsing the library catalog and I really enjoyed it! A bit of fantasy, a bit of romance and a just a really well-written, interesting book.

Beth  (canadianbeth) | 8 comments I am currently about halfway through The Bachelor's Bargain, by Catherine Palmer, which I borrowed from the library. I am also just partway through Fall of Giants on my e-reader.

I just finished Robin Hobb's Liveship Trilogy (the first one, Ship of Magic was a book club read).

Currently reading The Long Song - it's my next book club book (different book club, this book club read Perfume last month). It's about slavery in Jamaica at the time of the slave rebellion, told as a memoir of a former slave. It won both the Orange Prize and the Whitbread Book of the Year Award, was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize. So far it's alright (fast read, anyway)

Oh, and I'm listing to Cormac McCarthy's The Road... which is just about as slow as the movie was... bah.

Suz, I also listened to The Road and hated it. I watched the movie, thinking maybe in some way it would be better, and it was only marginally more entertaining.

I'm reading The Passage by Justin Cronin and I really like it so far. Rumor has it that it loses steam midway through, so we'll see. I'm only about 22% into it.

I'm also reading The Book of Awakening by Marc Nepo. You read a short passage each day for the entire year. I like it so far. It definitely makes you think and gets you to see yourself/your world in a different light. It's not for everybody, but I do recommend it to those who want to explore the concept of mindfulness.

Kari | 19 comments I just finished Jayne Ann Krentz's latest, In Too Deep. Not a bad read. Follows her usual formula. Largely a set up for the rest of the trilogy.

I just finished The Moon's Shadow by Catherine Asaro - it's number 8 in her Skolian Saga series, but the books are really short, so it's not like, I dunno, George Martin dense or anything. I really like her stuff. Good space opera with some romance and real science.

I also finished the Wastelands and really liked that set of short stories.

I just started City and the City by China Mieville, I have a lot of his books, but I haven't read any, so I'll let you know how that starts...

I've also started Larry Niven's The Inferno. I'm a fan of Dante's Inferno, so I thought it would be fun :)

Annette (annette414) Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs (first in the series that inspired the "Bones" TV Show - but there's not much in common!)
A Hunger Like No Other - Krelsey Cole is the current Kindle book.
