Finished Heart of Darkness, I liked it quite a bit. I thought it was beautifully written for someone who didn't speak a word of English until they were an adult.

Also finished Henry IV part 1, it was pretty great, but rather confusing with many similar names/nicknames/etc. I just started Henry V.

Also reading a book called Invisible Cities, by Italo Calvino, it's so good!

Right now I'm reading Moby Dick. I'm really, really enjoying it.

Inheritance by Paolini. It's book 4 (and supposedly the final) in the series.

Reading his dark materials..
(Amber Spyglass to be exact)

Again.

lol is it weird that I read a comforting special book I've read a million times after I finish a new book? I feel like I can't move onto another new book without doing it lol

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Please....someone, anyone, tell me it gets better. I'm on page 91 and bored to tears. I can read anything, but this is testing my yawn prevention.

Yes, this! It ended up being a favorite, and I'm dying having not read the next one yet. >__<

I'm reading "Self-Portrait" by Gene Tierney. <333

I've got a few pages left. I am actually kinda disappointed. I figured out two of the "mysteries" on my own and somewhat at the beginning. And I'm having a hard time connecting. But based on the reviews, it must just be me. Lol

I did just order the second book (nook) so I'll start it tonight when the kiddos are in bed.

I'm reading "Reefer Madness" by Eric Schlosser (author of Fast Food Nation.) Interesting but not as good as Fast Food Nation IMO. Just finished the Twilight series...finally got talked into reading them, really liked them actually.
