Woohoo, I was jsut about to do this, Jess. Glad you did!

Since I don't think you all are intersted in my school books, I am reading Post Mortem by Patricia Cornwell. It's super cheesy, but I am enjoying it.

Next on my list is going to be the book Dani suggested, A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby.

Sometime soon I'll be buying Cesars Way and From Baghdad, With Love. I just need to get money lol.

Right now I'm actually reading To Kill a Mockingbird...for the millionth time...for school. I skip a lot of chapters though because I already know what happens lol, so does that count?

I just started Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. First hardcover I've read in a long time because I'm addicted to eBooks. Ok, so maybe not so much addicted, maybe just cheap.

I read that! I have her whole series. I do like them. I really like murder mysteries, forensics, etc. as well as other kinds of books.


I am just about to read Survivors- True Stories of the Children in the Holocaust. I am also really interested in that. I've seen many documentaries and read lots of books on it. For some reason it draws me in emototionally and mentally.

Right now I'm reading FOR THE LOVE OF A DOG - By Patricia McConnell
It's a terrific mix of science and heart, I'm really enjoying it and although I still have about 1/4 of the book left, I highly recommend it!!!!!

and I'm re-reading a book that I just loved THE DOG WHO LOVED TOO MUCH - By Dr. Nicholas Dodman
