Whatcha reading?

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading The Lord of the Rings, yes for the first time. Most excellent book deserves all it's praise.

Now I'm going to start The Life of General Garibaldi autobiography. "Hero of the Two Worlds" he's called.

Also I recently purchased The Children of Húrin and How Black Was Our Sabbath both of which I really want to read.

Hi all,

"The Heretics Daughter" By Kathleen Keen.

It's about a family in Andover,Ma who amoung 100+ others were accused of witchcraft and brought to Salem,MA.

Kathleen is a direct descendant of both Martha and Sarah Carrie in the book.Highly recommended.

The Kite Runner

^oooh! How is that one? I watched the movie, and I probably should have read the book first. I loved the movie, so I'm sure the book is better.

I'm reading Three Cups of Tea, Literacy Difficulties: Diagnosis and Instruction for Reading Specialists and Classroom Teachers, (for a class), and I'm attempting to preview some literature that I may be using IF I get a job that I'm holding my breath on...

I read The Kite Runner last year and it is a great book, very hard to put down. Preferred it over the movie which was also good. He has another book called A Thousand Splendid Suns which I hear is also very good so I should eventually check it out.

Both books are on my to read list, but with teaching night school 4 nights a week this past semester on top of day school, let's just say I didn't quite get to it. ;)

Waa I haven't been on for AGES!

I'm reading The Time Travellers Wife and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo at the momento. I started reading one and then someone gave me the other and I started reading the first page and now I'm just reading both here and there... I should just choose one to finish first because I keep thinking one is the other... it makes for a really strange story...

I loved The Time Traveller's Wife! The movie doesn't do it justice. I hope you like it too.

My favorite is "A Walk in the Woods" about his hiking the Appalachian trail; there were parts that had me seriously ROTFL! :D

Just read The Life of General Garibaldi, autobiography of Giuseppe Garibaldi translated by Theodore Dwight. Great read on a great revolutionary man. Here's the wiki page on him if you want to read a brief biography of him.

Now I'm reading this:
