Vicki - we're not going to let you live in MD anymore if you don't get through Chesapeake. Every time I think to look at the library the only Micheners they have are ones I've already read. I can't believe he wrote so much.

I'm excited to hear Diana Gabaldon's next Outlander book is due in the spring. I've been saying it's time to reread the series so I must commence before the next book comes out. There's also the potential for a cable series based on her books.

DH just finished rereading 15 or something huge books in some Sci Fi series that has the final book coming out next year. The book was supposed to be out about now but got pushed back so now he's killing time reading the Steve Jobs biography.

Just finished "In the Garden of Beasts," about Hitler's rise to power through the eyes of the American Ambassdor at the time. Then started "The World of Karl Pilkington" just to keep the Patriot Act Spooks off base.

Started reading the fifth Kingdom Keepers to DD last night too.

I'm on The Name of this Book is Secret and am having a hard time. It might be because I'm starting the book before bed, but i'm a chapter and a half into it and I'm not sure how much farther I can get...

I'm reading Darkness Take My Hand by Dennis Lehane, just finished his first book, A Drink Before the War. A Drink Before the War was excellent and Darkness take my hand is awesome so far. I've actually just gotten back into reading, I go through spurts.

Finished the Secret book. I had to fight to finish it. I'd like to read the next two to (maybe?) find out what the secret really is, but I don't think I could push my way through another two. Onto The Forest of Hands and Teeth.

I'm re-reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. Some friends and I write a blog for a local bookstore and my articles are "literary deathmatches" between two fictional characters. My upcoming article is a discussion of who is a bigger tyrant: Nurse Ratched or Joffrey from Game of Thrones.

My other two articles (in case you're bored)

I love that book! My DS has to read a book from a list of "classics" before school starts (he's in Honors English and they want to hit the road running). He picked "Great Expectations", so I'm reading that, as well. I'm excited to read the books he has to read so we can talk about them. Plus I need to read something to bide my time until the new Vince Flynn and Nelson DeMille books come out this fall!

Finished "Divergent" last night and have now started the 2nd book..."Insurgent". I highly recommend "Divergent"!
 
The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir, who I love but she sometimes comes across as bossy lol
That might be an excellent companion read to my current book "Bring up the Bodies," the follow-up to "Wolf Hall." Poor Anne is quickly falling out of favor and soon will have her turn at being the 'former queen who was never really the queen.'
