Just finished Night World volume 2 Just started on volume 3.. It is a collection of 3 short stories about vampires, witches, stuff like that but all the storys go hand in hand with the other stories. They arent to bad... I have been on a Vampire kick since I read Twilight LOL blush.gif

small hijack: This topic reminded me of a book/movie in my childhood days. I am not a reader but, in my (10-11 yr old) childhood, the most popular book was "Love Story" with Ali McGraw and Ryan O'neal and the book was suppose to contain a lot of "bad words". I got caught with it and my Mother made me give it abck to the girl I borrowed it from, before I could read the first page. I requested that Movie as a gift one time. highjack over: carry on tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif If you can find it, it's an aweosme love story!!!

Currently: "Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You" by Lewis Grizzard. Somehow I'm not getting as much enjoyment out of it as I did years ago when I read it. It almost reads like "East of Eden" for me. That was a book that I just could not pick up. This is the same way. Not sure I'll finish it.

On request: "Candide" by Voltaire. Recommended by a friend.

On hand: "My Sister's Keeper". I bought it Friday and after I finish the above two, I'll read it next.

Running a little behind on my goal of 50 by the end of the year.

I plan on reading that one on my flight to Singapore. I have a 5 hour layover in Tokyo both ways so I'm sure I'll get it finished in time to see the movie in the theaters!

You'll enjoy Candide. I also recommend getting a copy of Leonard Bernstein's operetta based on the work - great fun, and an incredible overture.

Read The Red Tent years ago. IT was a took book!

I am reading the Sookie Stackhouse series (that is what the HBO show True Blood is based on) I am hooked on the books and the show.

Also reading Carpe Demon and The Devil in White City.

Carpe Demon is an easy reading choice and the first in a series.

The Devil in White City is historical nonfiction. It is very interest but it is taking some time to read. There are a lot of dates and names. It is about the first world's fair and a serial killer in that period. I would recommend this one.

I have been listening to a new author to me. Blaze Clement. She writes light mysteries about an ex cop who now has a pet sitting business. 1. Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter. 2. Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund. She has a couple more but I could only get these 2 for my MP3 player from Cobb County Library.

I'm so excited! The library called and "Candide" is ready for me to pick up.

Devil in the White City is a great read. Clearly illustrates the difference between now and then. Erik Larson has done a couple of good books.

Yall should try Anita Blake Series by Laurel K Hamilton
very much like a grown up twilight or an Anne Rice.
You have to be nice first. When that doesn't work, you can be mean. Once you've been mean, noone will believe the nice anymore. So be nice, even if it hurts.
More life lessons from Anita:
There are some things more important than physical survival. You've got to be able to look yourself in the mirror.
Guns aren't designed for comfort. It's one of the few things that are worn by men, that are as uncomfortable as a pair of high heels.
Change is inevitable and leading change makes it positive. Availability is not a qualification. Hope is not a strategy. Potato chips are not a vegetable, and hot dogs are not a meat. Feedback is a gift, and anyone who "unfriends" you on Facebook because of a disagreement wasn't truly your friend at all.
