So far I am really enjoying it.
That book really, really touched me. I think it's absolutely beautiful. <3

Is it obvious I got $150 in B & N giftcards for my nook?

And I read fast.

Miakoda - if you like Nicholas Sparks - have you read "The Guardian"?

Currently reading Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. It's pretty **** good and has taken me totally by surprise. The opening was astounding.

But it has pretty high ratings and reviews so one would expect it'd be good.


Uhm....other than that haven't had much time to read a whole lot. Read a lot of James Herriot, including his biography. Oh and ''All My Patients have Tales", which is alright. Kind of in the same vein as Herriot but not as good of story telling IMO.

Also finished reading A Canticle for Leibowitz, which was quite good and a different method of writing. It's about religion in a post-apocalyptic world.

I like them as they are easy reading and developed enough to get me involved.

I have not read it yet, but it's on my "wish list". Have you read it? Is it good?

GO, I have all of J.H.'s books. I love them and reread them at least once a year!

Yes, I enjoyed it. Similar to most of his books, it was a touch predictable, but, as you said, easy reading and enjoyable.

I put aside my last book because I found another Dean Koontz book I hadn't read- "Velocity."
