wow, I'm impressed! I'm so happy you're doing this--I can get inspired and have a heads up on some worth while books.

You should post like a top ten of your favorites. I only read like 12 books a year, so I like to make them worthy of my time :)

I would love to be more well read, but I struggle with time (once I start a book I get a little obsessed and everything else gets put on hold) and not knowing where to begin. you're a very good example!

I have to admit that at times things do get put on hold around here sometimes due to my reading. A character flaw of mine, I guess.

May I suggest my favorite book, the Book Of Mormon, which is, to me, the best book in the world.

Then, to keep in the same spirit, finish it off with a little Stephen King, like I do. Its like chocolate and dog poop, they go oh so well together.

cha right!

OK, the books that I will admit to reading since the 1st of the year are:
1. Carla Neggers "The Rapids" She is a very good romantic suspense author. If you want to read her works start with her 1st book because the characters continue from book to book.
2. Nora Roberts "Red Lily" Book 3 in the Garden Trilogy. (I've read them all ha ha.) In fact almost all of her books.
3. Jayne Ann Krentz "Lost and Found" another romantic suspense author. I had never read any of her books before. It was OK.
In progress is "Isaiah: Prophet, Seer, and Poet" in my quest to understand the Isaiah scriptures in the Book of Mormon I decided to tackle it. Really deep stuff!!
I read alot of books because my condo on wheels dosn't keep me busy.
