I am currently reading the Stephen White murder/mystery series. I'd heard of him years ago because he is from Boulder and writes about familiar restaurants, hot spots and other places in Colorado. I'd been meaning to pick up his work and somehow never did.
A woman at work has his whole series and lent them to me. They are very entertaining and I've turned Furry Husband on to them. He wasn't a big reader until he found John Sanford. He read all of Mr. Sanford's books and entered into a slight depression because there were no more. I was trying to find him some more murder/mysteries he'd like. I'm on book 6.... Furry is on book 7.
I'm also reading Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. Another person at work gave me this and the 2nd book in the trilogy. I've had them for over a year and figured I should crack them open... this one is slow going. I read a bit and put it down for a long time... it's not a bad book, I guess it hasn't quite sucked me in yet. ?
Furry Husband's Mom gave me Canal Town. It is an old, old book. She says it was a favorite of hers. I got about 10 pages in and I'm not sure I can finish it. I'll try though.
I just finished Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts . I was a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE Stephen King fan in my teens and 20's. I haven't really read a creepy or horror genre book that I loved since. I tried a few and gave up. This collection of short stories was REALLY GOOD. There were 3 in particular that gave me serious creepy feelings and as I got further into them I wondered did I really want to continue for the case o' heebie jeebies they were gonna give me? I was out of practice for a spine tingler!
I have Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia on my desk at work for breaks and lunch hours.
I also have The New Basic Training of the Young Horse by Ingrid and Reiner Klimke and 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse and Rider by Jec Aristotle Ballou at home to pick up and read...
What books are you reading and what are some of your favorites? I'm always ready for a good read!
