    just finished 'Time of My Life' by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi. I really enjoyed this book. Super easy read.

    Stupid crappy short stories of Sookie Stackhouse series called A Touch of Dead. Crap. Can't even bring myself to finish.

    Armageddon In Retrospect- Kurt Vonnegut. It's great. I have his Look at the Birdie on deck. They're both posthumous collections of his short stories. Love him to death.

    Yeah, they were crap. And I was warned not to bother, but I had to. I think I read it in an hour or two, that's how much material was there.

    I just started reading "The Gift of Fear," and am freaking myself out. I'm paranoid enough already!! One of the mommy boards I belong to kept raving about it (and "Protecting the Gift" from the same author), so I snatched it up. I'm kind of inching my way through it ... it doesn't help that he starts out with a true story of a woman that was stalked and raped (and escaped being murdered).

    I wish I would have listened to all I heard before buying it, every review was like "crap". Oh well what can you do?

    I'm having to read Creating a Culture of Competence for work. Even by business-book standards, it is practically coma inducing.

    Same here. I'm waiting for Langdon to meet an intelligent and brave woman like Sophie from DaVinci Code. I hope it's not Katherine.

    Amazon.com: Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman (9780385522267): Jon Krakauer: Books

    Pretty good book so far, it's the story of Pat Tillman, the ex NFL player who ended up getting killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan. The author (who also wrote Into the Wild) does, in my opinion, a good job of switching back and forth between Pat's background and life along with that of Afghanistan's conflicts during the 80's that sowed the seeds for Laden.

    Brain candy time: Jackie Collins 'Poor Little Bitch Girl'. I am properly ashamed but needed something I could read without actually having to think. It's working.

    I found the whole book pretty terrible, I enjoyed Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code, but this one was just crap.

    I'm currently reading A Stroke of Midnight by Laurell K Hamilton, it's pure fluff.

    I'm listening to Till We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis, and reading The Pen Commandments by Steven Frank. I am enjoying both of them. The Pen Commandments is well written and very entertaining, and best of all really inspires you to put pen to paper.
