Finished The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson really good book.

The Constant Princess by Phillipa Gregory. It was really good; most of what I knew about Katherine of Aragon was from her later years, so it was interesting to read about her as a young woman.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I just finished the Twilight series and was in the mood for more vampires. This is much creepier than Twilight, but I like it. It's a slower read so I can savor it. *shiver*

I recently read "A Mercy" by Toni Morrison......very good.......I'm now reading Barbara Walter's Audition.
Does an audiobook count?
I heard much about Twilight, and I found it online, I finished it and am now listening to New Moon. I wanted to 'read' the book before seeing the movie, so I was glad I found it so fast.

I've got my hands on Cherry Adair's books about T-FLAC counter terrorist force. Hot stuff. Operatives who are wizards.

I just finished American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. I didn't like her other book, Prep, but I thought this one was very good.

Now I am starting Robinson Crusoe for my mother/son book club.

I just finished reading Nappily Ever After and Nappily Married by Trisha Thomas. I agree with the previous comment by missmonie; they're good chick lit but a little bit raunchy at times. I've started reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.

Water for Elephants is wonderful!! Enjoy it!!

I just finished New Moon in the Twilight series and am borrowing Eclipse tonight.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

Beautiful Boy by David Sheff.

Its about his son's drug addiction. I wanted to read it sooner but I waited for the paperback edition to come out. I can not put this book down. Seriously. My grades are suffering.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.
-Henry David Thoreau

I read A Thousand Splendid Suns this summer and agree that it was an unbelievably good book. I'm currently about 20 pages from finishing Angela's Ashes. It's also really good. I'd highly recommend both books.

I'm currently listening to Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston. It's ok. Not as good as some of his other books I've listened to.

Next up is Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters.
