I finished the "My Boyfriend's Dogs" book tonight. I enjoyed it. It's fairly light reading, but it's a good story and I felt like I got to know the dogs in the book, too

I just finished Thereby Hangs a Tail, by Spencer Quinn. It's a PI novel told from the point of view of the detective's dog/partner Chet. (Who would have been a K-9 officer but for an embarrassing incident at the graduation exercises. It involved a cat.)

Not great literature, but a very enjoyable read. The first book in the series, Dog On It, was also good.

I'm rereading The Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind. But Wizard's First Rule will always be my favorite of that series.

I just finished reading a book of essays by David Foster Wallace. I usually don't like books of essays, but this one was great. It's called "Consider the Lobster". After reading one of those essays I am now going to read Dostoevsky, I think The Brothers Karamazov would be a good choice.

Remember me talking about Bob? He got his first novel published and it's a great, fun read. Amazon.com: Alias Baby Girl (9781591333029): Robert W. Godwin: Books

Revolutionaries by Jack Rakove

Its a good study on the men who wrote our founding documents. Its a study of their lives up to 1774, whe nthings started to get really heated. It talks about what probably made these men, who were otherwise generally wealthy and prosperous in their own right, risk it all to create a new nation.

Just finnished LKH's new book Bullet. (Or maybe it is Bullets...don't remember.) It was decent. Seems like the series is coming to a close, of which I am greatful. I would rather it had been wrapped up a few books ago then this painful drawing out of the plot line. There's no...suspense to it anymore, just sex and magic solving problems. (Which is good in its own right, I just miss the suspense of the police investigations and the sexual tension between just a few characters.) The biggest OMG moment in this book was when a main character got shot, but then you knew he wasn't going to die because sex and magic fixes everything.

Going to start in next on Jim Butcher's Changes. I already peeked at the ending, because I am bad, and all I can say is Oh. My. God.

And I'm also halfway through Terry Goodkind's Temple of the Winds. I've reread the series often enough that I know what is going to happen, but I still get sucked into the story.

Just recently read "Latham Rising" by Rosenberg and "Flight" by Jan Burke. Currently reading "The Guardian" by Nicholas Sparks.
