So what book are on your bedside table right now? Just being nosy.
OK here's mine: Women in Love, DH Lawrence, Wollstonecraft and Godwin Memoirs, Bede Ecclesiastical History of the English people, Selected Poems TS Eliot and Ladybird 'learning with mother book3'. I also have the playscript for 'We happy few' which I must learn by mid november.
What books do you have and why?
"The Watchers", by Dean Koontz.
I've read it many times before--I always drag his old books back out every so often, just because I love them, lol.
Kane and Abel, Geoffry Archer- Remastered edition. Brilliant!
I love to read before I go to sleep, but I got addicted to hubbing for a while. lol And then I got interested in making videos. So, by the time I hit the bed at 1:00-2:00am (sometimes even later), I was just too tired to read. Recently, I found a book I bought from the library sale for 25cents... a romance by Lynn Kurland, "With Every Breathe I Take" (Whoo! so cheesy!), which I started reading last year but never finished. I had forgotten what it was all about... so I started reading it again from the beginning, and I am loving it.
I have a Kindle so all of my books are at my bedside
I just downloaded some more free ones to read. Currently I'm reading a Just William book from the 20s.
I just got done reading American Assassin by Vince Flynn. Excellent book. All of his books are good.
Next is either Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy or SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper.
Kindle for me too. I just started Charles Frazier's "Nightwoods". You have to wait a decade between each of his novels, so it's pretty exciting when one comes out.
I'm re-reading Sylvia Brown's Life on the Other Side and her book on dream intrepretation. To add to the stack I'm half way through Michael Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer. Love those other worldly experiences and the law stories.
I think it's really fascinating what people read. It's often quite in contrast with what people think you are.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas. It's been there a long time, it's a long book!
How you can make $25,000 a year with your camera + an Aussie book by Judy Nunn
for now !

I have no books next to my bed-side at the moment. I have several hundred books in my room, but don't read in bed.
I like ti have some inspirational short stories or good poems. I like to read before sleeping.
I'm on a reading slump. I have books on my beside, but nothing new and interesting. Currently re-reading We by Zamyatin, but not getting very far. Some works on this forum sound appealing, may give them a try, but I hate to leave a book I've started until I finish it.
The purer papers. Not an easy read, I am reviewing since the last read 3 years ago. This is my third read through.
The meaning sort of soaks in over time.
I have the Bible, What do you do with a Grumpy Kangaroo?, and Thomas and the School Trip. The Kindle is plugged in and charging on hubby's side.
What's a Kindle? I've heard it mentioned before.
google amazon kindle, it gives all the details. It is awesome and there's a new version soon to hit the market, Kindle Fire.
It's a wireless reading device.
I'm now reading:
Dissolution - C. J. Sansom;
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S. Thompson (okay, so I'm a late bloomer when it comes to modern American classics )
and a Clive Cussler.
If You Ask Me - Betty White's latest (2011)
and Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay.
I love to read while in bed and currently I am reading A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
Just finished "The Winter Sea" by Susanna Kearsley.. Anybody who liked this would like "The Vigin Blue" by the lady who wrote "Girl With The Pearl Earring." Still reading "What the Dog Saw" by Malcom Gladwell. About to start "Fall of the Giants" by Ken Follett. Listen to it books on tape and want to read the book to make sure I didn't miss a word. Can't wait for the next book in the trilogy.
The Twelfth Insight by James Redfield and Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11 by Wayne Barrett.
I'm about to start on Harvest Home, by Thomas Tryon. I read it every fall! It's a great book!!
I'm almost a third of the way through "The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters" by Gordon Dahlquist, which I've enjoyed so far.
Just finished "Invisible Woman" by Anne Strieber; almost finished with "Keep Still" by Eleanor Taylor Bland and about to begin "Free Lunch" by David Cay Johnston

I've seen a few forum threads/questions about reading lately - asking what types of books you like to read, or how many you've read in the past year, etc....but none have simply asked: what book are you reading right now? So c'mon, bookworms, tell us what you got. I'll start:Currently: A...

Do people nowadays prefer to read in the Internet rather than actual books?Do people read books at all nowadays? I noticed that not many people prefer to go to the library for books, what do you think?
