I'm currently reading "Thomas Jefferson:A Strange Case of Mistaken Identity" by Alf J. Mapp, Jr. Hard reading for me, but I do enjoy reading books about our founding fathers.

I finished The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein-wonderful book. Now I'm back to two books at a time.

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

My cousin sent me Eat, Pray, Love...It's on the best seller list and I am sure it's fabulous...Only I haven't been reading much, as I have discovered the internet,

that was a while ago, though...

finished "The Magic Cottage", by James Herbert; still suffering withdrawal, but I've started "The Stand" by Steven King and it seems like a goer.

The Long European Reformation, as part of my belated sruggle to get an education. The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist was the last book I read for pleasure, it should be read by every student of life.

I read The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists last year. It's certainly thought provoking.

The Sunflower by Simon Wiesenthal



If you've read Night by Eli Wiesel and liked it this would be a good book to look into

It was a good one. A lot of information and well-written. In exploring the motivations behind a murder committed by members of a fundamentalist sect of Mormons, the book does spend quite a bit of time dwelling on Mormonisms' rather bloody early history in America. It did drag in the middle. But I'd still take it any day over the stuff I normally have to read for my group.



I recently read two graphic novels: The House at Maakies Corner by Tony Millionaire, and The Trial of Colonel Sweeto , which is a collection of dark-humor comic strips from a website called The Perry Bible Fellowship.



Now I'm back to reading books I think I should have read, but haven't. I'm on The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier.

slops, gloops, and gruels.

Ive been reading Dracula by Bram Stoker, but its taking me forever to finish since he killed off my favorite character I haven't had much drive to finish reading :P.



So now Im re-reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Lolita has to be one of my favorite books! Its strange but so much fun to read .

I'm reading The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson right now. It's very interesting, even though it's a lot different than what the back of the book says.
