I just read The Great Gatsby from cover to cover tonight/this morning. Now I'm mad because I don't have anything else to read.

I love Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books! Mystery with some good humor!

Right now I'm reading Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner...It's the sequel to her Good In Bed. Chick-lit, as nynaeve77 said, but I like it! I liked Good In Bed better than this one, but it's still good.
I have found myself laughing out loud & then looking around to see if anyone heard me...lol
I'm on Three To Get Deadly...good, fun reading, which I've needed for a while since no more school!

I can't recommend these two books enough. Absolutely loved them both.

I just finished The Subtle Knife and am waiting for someone to return the last book in the Dark Materials trilogy (I am a library junkie).

While I wait for the Amber Spyglass, I'm reading the 2nd book in the Septimus Heap series.

I love mysteries/suspense/crime dramas, especially if they're peppered with some humor, so I love Carl Hiaasen...just finished Skinny Dip. I'm also a James Patterson fan...just finished The Quickie and am now reading Beach Road.

Those are good. I was returning books this AM and took two in for a man that was returning just two (I had a bag of them). So I am going to check out the Bartimeas (SP?) Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud....looks good.

I've only read the first book in this trilogy, but I really loved it.

Oh yes! I think this is one of the best true crime books ever written. It absolutely chilled me to the bone and creeped me out when I first read it (many years ago). If you like true crime books, this is a definite must.

I just finished "Black Cross" by Greg Iles. Really suspenseful and kept me interested until the end which is hard to do anymore. He's one of my favorite writers these days.

I'm listening to A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. Amazingly, emotionally-wrenching good.

When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. Highly enjoyable.

Also Hard Times, Studs Terkel's book about the great depression.

I'm a little behind the times, but I'm reading Wicked by Gregory Maguire and really enjoying it. I also loved Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister.

I'm reading Vanity Fair again, I love that book.
I agree about the Jane Austen books, they're great to read!

Wicked was great too!

.

I read "Hard Times" way back when and really enjoyed it. Shoot, maybe it's time to read it again considering we might be on the brink of another depression.

I just finished "Lipstick Jungle" by Candace Bushnell (Sex and the City). It was strangely compelling even though when I finished it I thought to myself, "is that it?"

Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins

Totally good book, whether its true or not (I personally think its filled with half truth), the book puts a lot of things into perspective and puts things into light. I definitely recommend it
