What Are You Reading Now?

I just finished reading S is for Silence by Sue Grafton. Yeah, she's hooked me. Damn her and that alphabet crap.

She's got me till the end. Gawd, I hope I don't die before she gets to Z. That'll be a real drag.

Reading John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany.
Finally got around to it.
And every time I read when Owen is talking, all I can hear is John's voice from the New York reading and I laugh!!!!! :lol:

Well, seeing as how I live in Geraldo's moustache, I didn't get to the New York event. But, I did get to watch it on the internet and I absolutely fell in love with John Irving's reading. He was such a surprise to me; and so charming.

Yeah. I'd do him.

I've started Kelly Braffet's new book Last Seen Leaving. I'm only thirty pages in and her writing is fantastic. I hope the storyline delivers.

Paluhniuk ?

Postby mylife4usk on Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:53 pm

I'm reading Chuck(how do you pronounce his last name) Paluhniuk's, Haunted. (and 20th CG's)

Just finished Neverwhere by Gaiman., was my first and definitely won't be my last. I've read everything by SK, Koontz, McCammon & Ketchum. Any other recommendations out there for a PT working wife and mom trying to escape the horrors of everyday life? :twisted:

Reading 'Ghoul' by Brian Keene. A good read for those who remember the 80's.

Just finished 'Fears Unnamed' by Tim Lebbon. For the 2nd time. One of the greatest stories ever is WHITE.


I would suggest Edward Lee and Joe Lansdale. 2 very different storytellers, but are 2 of my very favorites.

Edward Lee's stuff is lots of fun. There's always a few gross out laughs and a ton of sex. Love it. Try 'Flesh Gothic' or 'City Infernal'. 2 real good reads.

Joe Lansdale is a great writer who's stories just flow. 'Freezer Burn' was my first and I always recommend it. A 'Fine Dark Line' is another great one to start with. A little more contemporary but he can come up with some weird stuff. He did write 'Bubba Ho Tep' after all.

Oh, wow...

Postby mylife4usk on Fri Feb 02, 2007 8:42 am

I didn't know Joe Landsdale wrote Bubba Ho Tep! I haven't yet tried his work, or Lebbon's, Lee's or even Keene's. Lee I heard was pretty gory,i'm sort of tempted to buy Slither but I don't want to be too grossed out. Then again after reading Ketchum, I don't think it's possible. heh heh. :shock:

Thanks for the recommends!

I love Kelly's writing! She is awsome. And the second book is betterer than the first! That's for sure!

Mary Higgins Clark's NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Postby Barry_Wood on Sun Feb 04, 2007 7:40 am

Currently reading Mary Higgins Clark's NO PLACE LIKE HOME. I fell to sleep last night still holding the book. I'm just past the middle section, and it's keeping my attention.

I've always wondered about Clark's writing. She's very popular.

I'm not bustin' your chops here Barry, but I like the fact that it's holding your attention, but you fell asleep while reading it. :lol:

I was tired and I find the older I get sometimes I fall to sleep while reading. That didn't happen to me when I was younger. I should have made myself clearer.

Cheers.

I'm just teasing you Barry.

I totally know what you mean. I can love a book; but I find the older I get, something relaxing like reading can put me right to sleep, no matter how great the story is.

Anymore, the best sleeping pill I can take is a book.
