    I love to read but got kind of lazy looking for books to read. Can you tell me what you're reading and would you recommend it.

    I am reading "busting loose from the money game" by Robert Scheinfeld.  Kind of a radical way to look at finances, weird some might say but interesting in my opinion.

      The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I recommend it wholeheartedly. It is very bleak, though.

      If you like Fiction, I just finished reading Black Out by Lisa Unger. I had never heard of her before but I stayed up half the night reading that book it was fantastic.

    Portrait of a Lady, Henry James

    yes, it's American literature at it's best. I like books that require that I leave everything else behind and this one does just that.

    I have had a horrid habit of reading multiple books at a time ever since I was a child.  So here are the books I am reading or have just recently finished:

    Angela's Ashes and 'Tis by Frank McCourt (recommended- must read in order)

    The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare - maybe a bit too drippy a read for a soldier- I'm teaching it to my 8th graders and needed to brush up.

    Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis- recommended, if you read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe first.  It's children's literature, but I am a Lewis fan.  From what I can tell, you either love him or hate him.

    A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. It is unique book on history of science, world and human beings. The book has been written in such a way that you will want to read it again and again.............no boring stuff I mean.
