'On Saudi Arabia,' by Karen Elliott House
City of bones(cassandra clare) acheron (sherrilyn kenyon) and if you could, try a bit of my book that i posted in a hub
The Associate....so good...a bit of a different twist to it.
Just finished A Bend in the Road and Safe Haven...
Currently reading "Captured at the Imjin River" by a UK soldier who was a POW during the Korean War.
Currently reading The Socialite Who Killed a Nazi with her Bare Hands. (How could you not pick up a book with a title like that?!) It's certainly interesting. I am also reading Dhalgren for my fiction fix.
I'm currently almost through "Wuthering Heights." Next book up is "Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain to see if it is better than "Huckleberry Finn" which I have recently read.
Les Miserables- I got it on kindle and didnt realise it is quite so long
I adore AJ Jacobs, Ive read his first 3 books, but I know he has at least one new one out and I can't wait to read it.
Currently reading the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. After that I have so many to get too that It will keep me busy for a LOOOONG time. lol.
I am reading a book called "Thinking, fast and slow..."
Have to admit that I am not enjoying it much but I hate not finishing a book that I have started to read
Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think - 2013
Interesting that this thread popped back up. I was just thinking about going to the library next week and checking out a half-dozen books. Haven't done that in awhile.
1. Genesis Secret by Tom Knox. It's proving a surprisingly good read of the lost secrets/mystery thriller variety and has also drawn my attention to the existence of the Gobekli Teppe site in Kurdish Turkey, where the oldest temple in the world (c. 10,000 years old) was discovered in the 1990s.
2. Y Llyfr Ryseitiau: Gwaed Y Tylwyth by Nicholas Daniels. A children's fantasy, which I am using to push myself further in reading and understanding Welsh.
3. The 13 Curses by Michelle Harrison. A teen fantasy of a girl trying to get back her brother, who was stolen by the fairy folk. I ended up having to wait to see someone in the bank, so popped out to the nearest charity shop to find something to read while I waited. Not bad so far.
I've just the finished The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (Tressell) read it years and years ago, but gained even more insights this time. Also become a beta reader for a friend- read first chapter, excellent. Even though the genre is not really my thing, I knew it would *get me* in that first chapter, she's an excellent writer.

Have you ever read a book that had you looking over your shoulder?A long time ago I read a book by Peter Straub, "Ghost Story" and it was so terrifyingly eerie, I had to sit with my back to a wall as I was so creeped out while reading it. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up...

I'm reading Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. The story follows a number of families and individuals as they evacuate Paris in 1940 following German invasion. I am a huge fan of historical drama novels, which is why the book caught my attention. Although it did take me about 50 pages to really...
