What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

I'm on the third book of the series Erec Rex. It's very good, sort of a mythological fantasy thing. A sort-of-friend introduced me to it, he says they only get better so I'm very excited.

I finished You'll Think of Me today, very good. I am re reading Return by Karen Kingsbury. It is the third book in the Redemption series.

Just started this morning: Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette. It is the third and final book in her Out From Egypt trilogy.

I just read "Sunset Lullaby" by Robin Jones Gunn, the third and final book in her Christy and Todd: The Baby Years series, and it it was wonderful! I won't ruin it for anyone else planning to read it, but I loved it and found the ending especially touching. :sniff:

I'm reading Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson. It's a contemporary/historical. The historical is set in 1940 Germany/England, the contemporary in modern day England. Very good so far.

That sounds interesting, Laurie!

I'm reading "A Note Yet Unsung" by Tamara Alexander. It's the third book in her Belmont Mansion series, and it's very good so far! The main characters are musicians, and I don't know much about music, but the story is very compelling!

I finished Catching the Wind, excellent book. Up next for me is A House Divided by Michael Phillips & Judith Pella. It is the second book in their Russians series which was orginally published in the 90s but can still be found online.

I always saw the Russians series in my church library back in the day, but I never read them. I always thought I should and just never did. One of these days I'll have to finally do it!

I just started "Hearts Entwined," a novella collection with stories by four authors I really like! The first story is by Karen Witemeyer.
