message 1: by Beth (new)

Beth (bethanny) Just finished Austenland by Shannon Hale -- a fun, quick read! I really liked it.

message 2: by Beth (new)

Beth (bethanny) Peace Like a River by Leif Enger -- it's fantastic. Lovers of language will love it; the writing is both lyrical and readable.

message 3: by Silver (new)

Silver The most recent books I have finnished are The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, Catch-22 by Joesph Hellar, and Dr. Jykell and Mr. Hyde by Rober Louis Stevenson.

TheReadingKnitter/ Kasey (thereadingknitter) The last books I finished were Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult and Sisters by Danielle Steel. I'm hoping to finish Eclipse tonight.

TheReadingKnitter/ Kasey (thereadingknitter) And I finished it :) hehe

TheReadingKnitter/ Kasey (thereadingknitter) I liked Eclispe much better then Twilight. Eclispe left me hanging and I can't wait to read Breaking Dawn to find out what happens next.

message 7: by Silver (new)

Silver I just finnised The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco, really interesting and thought provoking book

message 8: by Jenna (new)

Jenna (backwoodsbabble) I just finished The Gypsy Morph by Terry Brooks. If you are a fan of his, you'll love it!

Heading on to First Among Sequels (Thursday Next) by Jasper Fforde. It's got my attention quicker than I thought.. if only there were more hours in the day.. sigh

message 9: by Silver (new)

Silver I have recently finnished The Ambassadors by Henry James. He is a difficult writer to grasp, and there are parts of the book I do not completely understand, but I think he is still a compelling writer with a lot of depth, and I enjoyed his works. It is a good story and I have glimpses of understanding.

message 10: by Silver (new)

Silver Yes, it is a book that takes concentration, or a lot could be missed. It is not the kind of book you want to read during commerical breaks while watching TV

Beth A. (BethALM) I finished Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. It was really good, I loved it.

I also just read Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card. It was a bit disappointing, usually he's pretty good.

message 12: by Kristie (new)

Kristie (spedkristie) Just finished JANE EYRE....I highly recommend it. Very easy to read classic!

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

So far I really like Jane Eyre! I can't wait to discuss it with you!

message 14: by Beth A. (new)

Beth A. (BethALM) I just finished Dragonforge by James Maxey. I really enjoyed it.

Hi Beth, I'm interested as to what you were disappointed with in this. Have you read the preceding books in the series?

Ann from S.C. | 14 comments Hello, Just finished NEW MOON, and THE STUPIDIST ANGEL. Now I am into THE STAND and THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET.
I am old on GRs but new to this group:)

message 17: by Ann from S.C. (new)

Ann from S.C. | 14 comments It is a short and quick read. And pretty good too.

message 18: by Beth A. (new)

Beth A. (BethALM) Logan,

I have read the Ender Series but not the Shadow Series. I loved Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, and Xenocide, but I lost interest with Children of the Mind. It was really slow, especially the first half.

But Orson Scott Card is still one of my favorite authors. Most of his books are really good.

message 19: by Stef (new)

Stef (buch_ratte) | 499 comments Yesterday I finally finished DREAMLAND by Kevin Baker. Liked the book although it wasn't as good as the first part of the triology, PARADISE ALLEY

message 20: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) Last night, at about 3am I finished A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Not my favourite out of the 3 including this one I've read, perhaps because it's just too famous.

message 21: by Julia (new)

Julia (juliajs) | 30 comments Hello, new to the group. I have just finished David McCullough's Truman, all 992 pages! It really was an interesting read and great to understand about someone I had not been that curious.

message 22: by Petra Eggs (new)

Petra Eggs (PetraX) I just finished Forensic Nurse. Load of rubbish. Badly written too.

message 23: by Beth (new)

message 32: by Kathy (new)

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 139 comments While waiting for my electricity to come back on last week (6 days), one of the books I read by flashlight was The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop by Lewis Buzbee, a nonfiction title that was a fascinating memoir of Buzbee's years of working in the bookselling business, along with all sorts of interesting information and tidbits on books, printing, and all things books.

message 33: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 1 comments Just finished A Three Dog Life, a Memoir. It was a quick read, sweet, and a little sad, but very honest. I would def. recommend it!
