Soliciting Comments–Book Raves Anyone???

Looking for a good book to sink my teeth into.

Maybe a good story…

Maybe something thinkative…

I dunno.

Has anyone read anything worthwhile lately?  Leave me a comment if you have…  I need a new book!

  1. Of course I just finished “Motherless Mothers” by Hope Edelman. What else does a Motherless mother read, right?
    Glad you stopped by my blog…I’ll be back to yours!

  2. I just finished Devil in the White City if you like a little true fact crime. I also recommend anything by Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything or The Mother Tongue or Made in America, especially. He’s great at little anecdotes and very funny. If you like children’s lit., I would also recommend The City of Ember or Eragon. I also just finished Lies my Teacher Told Me about the distorted view History books give, very intriguing, and The Joy Luck Club but since I watched the movie first I think I ruined the effect. Whew, I also need a new book to read but can’t afford my Borders/Barnes and Noble addiction right now and I don’t know if I can get a library card while I am hiding out in another state. 😉

  3. The Princess of Burundi by Kjell Eriksson and Ebba Segerberg was good. I think the author is from Sweeden, but the book was great. Also the
    Revenge of the Kudzu Debutantes: A Novel by Cathy Holton was good and girly.

  4. Thank you for the suggestions one and all… I guess all I had to do to get comments was ask, huh? 😉

    Lauren–I actually have “A Short History.” Maybe I’ll start there.

    Mark and Holly, I would love to have you back to read some more.

    And anyone else out there reading comments–what do YOU advise in the world of books?

  5. I like “The Sword of Truth” series by Terry Goodkind…but if you read one you’ll want to read them all and there are 10 long ones in the series so far. I am also a particular fan of Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, but if you’re not into sci-fi/fantasy then I can’t help, if I’m not reading that stuff I’m reading economic/political non-fiction and I think I’m the only one REALLY enjoys that.

  6. I am rereading A Country Year: Living the Questions by Sue Hubbell each night to my wife. It is very calming and Sue is a great writer. I think you might like it. Most public libraries have a copy.
