Well, not right now. More like "what books have you been reading recently".

E=mc^2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation, by David Bodanis--great book if you're into physics, and certainly a fairly unique approach.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms (or San Guo Yan Yi, or 三国演意...) by Luo Guanzhong (which I am not spelling in character input method)--around 13th-century Chinese historical fiction. XD It's still a good book, though.

Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien--need I say more?

The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien/Christopher Tolkien--I actually am reading this over again bit by bit as a sleep aid. <_<

What a delightful book! *sighs*

Am reading "The Idiot" by Dosteyevsky. (Not the right spelling...why do people have such hard to spell last names?) It's quite interesting and full of Russian cultcha. \:D/

I just finished a book called: The Giver

Someone needs to read it so we can talk about it. It's a creepy/social kind of book. Makes you think about how society is now.

I also just finished "Breathing Underwater" which is about a guy that is physically abused by his father and then starts abusing his girl friend (being controlling at first and then hitting her) and gets ordered to take a anger/abusive managment class or something and he finally sees what he's been doing. Anyway, it was an ok book. Bad language though.

Anything by Frank Peretti rocks too. ANyone reading MOnster?

I'm reading White, the last in Ted Dekker's Circle Trilogy... then I'll probably read Frank Peretti's newest novel.

Last night (actually, early this morning ;) ), I finished reading A Quarter For a Kiss by Mindy Starns Clark. It's the fourth book in a series that has money in all the titles. I can't wait to read the next one, because the end left me with a cliffhanger of sorts, and know I want to know more details about what somebody said! The other books were pretty good too: A Penny For Your Thoughts, Don't Take Any Wooden Nickels, A Dime a Dozen, the one I just finished, and then the next one that I want to read is The Buck Stops Here. I'm guessing that the fifth book will be the last one, unless she switches to Canadian money and includes a twoonie book. :D

Right now I am reading a History book for a few weeks ago (we got it in the mail after the History week it was for). It is called "Almost Home." By Wendy Lawton. It is a pretty easy read, besides that she uses words that they used in the colonial days. Thankfully in the back she has a mini Dictionary of the words she used!

Way to go, Bearliz - I'm re-reading through the LOve Comes Softly series right now! I'm about halfway through the last one, Love Finds a Home. I hadn't read any of them for a couple years, and then really wanted to. I love those books! They're fun to read, yet not entirely fluff. There are real issues and characters that you can relate to, as well as interesting storylines.

Recently I've been reading Peanuts comic books. :anxious: I don't know if comics count as a book, but I've really been into them lately. I didn't use to really like Peanuts, but a few months ago I started to develop a deeper appreciation for them. The president of the Bible college that I attend like to joke that Charles Schultz is his favourite theologian, but to a certain extent, I can see how that could be true. They're also just fun sometimes! \:D/
