Which book are you in the middle of at the moment? Are you enjoying the storyline or has it been a chore to get through?

I'm currently reading Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon. It's a time-travel type romance which isn't my usual type of story but I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm reading Aphelion by Emily Ballou. It's taking a bit of getting into, but I'm determined it won't get the better of me!

'The Last Oracle' - James Rollins

The Pact is one of my Fav Jodi Picoult book.

Im currently reading "Prayers For Rain" by Dennis Lehane. Who also wrote "Gone Baby Gone" and there is a movie by the same name starring Casey Affleck. I don't usually read crime/thriller but after reading the Millennium Series by Stieg Larrson, I was hooked. Plus the movie was good too.

Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks.

I don't normally read his books, but so many people love them, I had to find out what all the fuss was about.

Wasn't that impressed by "Slan" btw...I found the ending left a bit to be desired...

I think it has been 'made' into a movie already.

I keep on trying to find free books on my kindle. I bought some free sample ones and free ones show up in my recommended list now. I have 26 unread ones in all genres. It's kind of nice actually to read genres which I don't normally read. I'm also studying so a few pages of my text book on the train in the morning or evening.

You should just read all the stories on Stories Space Louise...that's always free...

What am I reading at the moment? Why, this forum thread...of course...
Actually trying to psych myself up for writing a long story...there should be a thread "What are you writing at the moment"...

I've been keeping up with (and laughing at) his Twitter posts for a while now and just recently read the review on Amazon for his book. It sounds like a great read.

A few days ago I finished "Bright Shiny Morning" by James Frey and yesterday I made a last minute trip to the book store and picked up 2 new ones - "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen and "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks.
Anyone read any of these before? Any thoughts/critiques?

The Mermaid's Madness, by Jim C. Hines. it's a series that recasts Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White as sort of Charile's Angels in fairy tale land - very light weight but good fun!

I've just read a seriess of detective novels done by a husband and wife writing team who call themselves Barbara Allen. I'm really enjoying the humour and the fact that it's not a typical detective novel. I downloaded all the books in their Antiques series.

Has this inspired you to write another chapter or 10 in your series? Please say yes, please say yes.
