I just finished "How To Make An American Quilt."   Wasn't my favorite book, just too disjointed for me.    Not sure what's up next for me.

I am hopefully finishing a book tonight (if I get off the computer and go read)...The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble.

It is a British chick lit book about a reading group, but really more about their lives outside the group. I am enjoying it very much. Next up will be A Thousand Splendid Suns-Khaled Housseni

This weekend I read A Million Little Pieces by James Frey.  TOTALLY overrated.

I am currently reading A Painted House by John Grisham (it's great so far) and A Drink Before the War by Patrick Lehane (it's okay). 

Next up = ???  Hopefully something on my A-Z author list!  :-)

 I just started Janet Evanovich's One For the Money.  I thought I'd check out the Stephanie Plum bandwagon.  I'm only 2 chapters in and I've already laughed out loud twice.  Looks good so far!

I just finished Summer Sisters, by Judy Blume. It was a really good read. I thought I was too old to read Judy Blume, but this one really surprised me. I don't know why though, I grew up reading her books.

I've just started the wolf at the door - by Christine Warren? (a novel of the others)...

I'm reading The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff.  It is the best book I've read this year so far.   Well-written and very suspenseful.

I am sick so I'm reading something light, fluffy and easily entertaining. It's a mystery called Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil. I"m going back to it right now :)

I just finished Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos. It is probably my favorite book so far this year.

Now I am reading Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai.  I have had it in the TBR pile for a while, and thought I should either read it or pass it on.  So far it is slow going, but perhaps I can make some progress on it tonight.

Oh, Christina - I hope you enjoy Middlesex. I just finished it, and loved it!

This morning, I started reading Sue Grafton's A for Alibi - I'll probably be offering it here when I've finished, if anyone's interested.

I recently read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova also; I think I'm in need of a string of easy-reads!
