DH just finished A Year of Living Biblically by AJ Jacobs (loved it), he's now reading An Inconvenient Book by Glenn Beck and Journey of a Hope Merchant by Neal Petersen (the around alone sailor).

Me: Just finished up a Dick Francis novel, Dead Heat, plus one called Retirement for Two and the very irritating New Retirementality (keep working or you'll die of boredom or lack of meaning) and waiting for my textbooks to arrive!
Next week I'll be reading American Government, Business Law, and Western Civilizations from 1869 to Present. I'm really too old to be back in college! Sigh.

I LOVED Honeymoon With My Brother--what a great story! Eat Pray Love was kind of annoying and totally self-centered, I thought. It is supreme chick-lit, though!

Krakatoa, just started it so not sure how good it is going to be.

Last book I just finished was Honeymoon with my brother. Entertaining, the type you can put down and pick up 3 days later without losing the gist of what it is all about.

Just finished 'Rescuing Sprite' by Mark Levin. About a rescue dog his family adopted. Very moving since Sprite was near the end of his life.

Also read 'T is for Trespass' by Sue Grafton. Much better than her last book. A couple of things bothered me, but they were minor.

Getting ready to start Clive Cussler's new book 'The Chase'.

Do you read cookbooks? DW says they might as well be SciFi...after she reads a recipe she thinks, "Yeah, like that's gonna really happen!".

Just finished "A Free Life" by Ha Jin (a novel about a Chinese man who immigrates to the US)---good not great.

Began The Other Mother by Gwendolyn Gross--about a clash between neighbors (one a stay at home mom, the other who works)---seems promising.
