I am reading Disturbing Pieces by Robert N. Porter. It is a thriller. A boy gets 6 pieces of jigsaw puzzle as an anonymous birthday gift. More and more pieces arrive later. Eventually the puzzle point to the disturbing past of the father. Family starts to race against morbid adversary.
I'm reading "Ghostwritten" by David Mitchell, the author of "Cloud Atlas". It's a series of vaguely connected stories and protagonists, with each chapter bringing someone entirely new to the forefront. I'm really enjoying it.
I'm also listening to "The Great Gatsby" in my car as I have long commutes some days. I read it in high school but thought it was time for another look.
Great suggestions! One of my 2013 resolutions was to read a book a month. I got into the bad habit of neglecting books in favor of the internet. Listening to classics in the car is a wonderful idea. Chose yours as best answer. Aloha, Stephanie
Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It's very sad in the first half, but then everything is turned around in the second half. Kenyon had been writing about Acheron for about 10 novels, and then she finally wrote his entire story. It's perfection and my favorite of her books.
I'm reading Clementine by Cherie Priest. It's a steampunk novel about a female spy during the Civil War who's assigned a mission to pursue a runaway slave (making a living as a pirate) that's pursuing an airship full of Union military equipment. She ends up taking sides with him against the Union army because there's something shady about the "equipment" on the airship and because the the ship was stolen from him! I read Bonecrusher, another steampunk novel by Cherie Priest and it was great so I'm expecting the same from Clementine. Thus far it's turning out to be pretty good.
I have to agree with you that Disturbing Pieces sounds intriguing.
victoria and Abdul By Shrabani basu.This book is about Queen victoria and her Urdu teacher Abdul Karim.
I am currently reading Michael Crichton's "Pirate Latitudes". I just finished reading a couple of his other novels: "Micro" and "Next". I had never read any of his work before and just got on a kick of reading his work. I've seen all the movies based on his work, but I am now a fan of the literary work that he did while he was still living. I am enjoying this latest adventure story so far.
Just finished The Summoning and now I am on to The Awakening.
I am reading That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis. It is the third book in his science fiction trilogy. It is a little difficult to read because of the language and sentence structure. I am actually reading it for the second time. I like the other two books in the trilogy better, they are: Out Of The Silent Planet and Perelandra.

for easy reading.A soothening book perhaps.I don't want tragedy or excessive violence. I prefer Oliver Twist to great expectations. But a full comedy is always welcome or something that does like 'they happily lived ever after'. Or an inspiring or calming nonfiction.Thanks in advance.

Does anyone still read an actual newspaper?I miss sitting at the table with my coffee and reading the newspaper, shuffling through the sections, reading the classifieds, etc. I stopped my subscription years ago. Do you still get the paper?
