Got side tracked, but got back and finished the Princess Bride. Reading it is a different experience then watching the movie. They both tell almost the identical story, but in such different ways that it is hard to compare them. I think I will just say they were both great! :)

I agree that your dog has the most adorable face! OMG, what a doll!
Now back to related topics (books and dogs)

Superman keeps telling me he's going to get me a poodle (I'm allergic to all other breeds unless they don't shed or have dander, Now I spend a lot of time on the RI poodle society site and I'm hooked on three if them. They're expensive so I have to wait until he gets a job. He got a call from a prospective client in Minnesota Sunday nite but he can work from RI. All if these high hopes just keep getting dashed. Never heard back from the one in Mass.

As for a great series of books - read the ones by our Vincent "Lost Tales of Power." So far three are out - Enemy of an Enemy, The Academy, & Lost Tales of Power. I'm reading them a 2nd time until the 4th volume is published. He's such a GREAT writerI couldn't put them down. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I have a toy poodle, just a tip, they're too smart for their own good. You never know what they'll do next. They love to please. I've also known miniture poodles and i've met a standard before.

Though be prepaired to brush brush brush.

I know how you feel. I am working on my second masters... then I think I am gonna take a break from school for a while. I love it, but with a son and a wife, its just getting hard to divide myself up!

Trying to decide what to read next, maybe this cloud atlas that I heard speak of. Need find out what it is first. :)

Reviving this topic because I am reading a fascinating book and my hubby is tired of me making him listen to excerpts! Anyway, I am engrossed in CONSIDER THE FORK: A HISTORY OF HOW WE COOK AND EAT by Bee Wilson. I wish I could lay on the couch and read for a solid day but that isn't going to happen anytime soon. It is dangerous however because I am building a shopping list of kitchen items I MUST have -- after the chapter on knives I now need (NEED!!!) a mezzaluna and a tou (Chinese chef's knife.)  I have several more chapters to go...ruh-roh!

Ah, the best time to read a series is when all of the books are out and you can have at it in one go. :P

I love non-fiction (any book that provides an opportunity to learn about something new!).

I'm currently reading "What a Plant Knows" by Daniel Chamovitz: http://www.whataplantknows.com/

 

 

What a Plant Knows is a rare inside look at what life is really like for the grass we walk on, the flowers we sniff, and the trees we climb. It is a true field guide to the senses for science buffs and green thumbs, and for anyone who seeks a greater understanding of our place in nature.

I've got a few books on the go right now:

  • Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar by Lustig
  • Good Calories, Bad Calories by Taubes
  • Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind (Naked Empire)
  • Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Mull - I'm reading this one outloud to my boys over lunch time lately... A good time for reading fiction or for school - they are feeding and happy, and have to sit and listen until they're done.  LOL
  • Sea of Monsters by Riodan - We're listening to this one in the car. The Percy Jackson and Olympians books ae very well done - perfect for boys.

I'm a book junkie.  :D

As usual, the vast and teetering piles of books in the house are growing and growing. At the moment I am immersed in food science and on the lighter side, some tame murder by Dorothy Sayers. Oh, and ancient Israelite history.

How on earth did this thread get by me? I went to college in my 40s and, despite my science background, got a degree in English. I used to say that all I wanted to do was find a job where I could read all day. Trouble was... I forgot to say that I wanted a job where I could read good fiction all day!! I ended up working in medical publishing and read about orthopedics and ophthalmology all day!! UGH!

 

I had long work commutes in my life. I'd join the library in every town I worked in and listen to ALL of Dickens and Austen on audiobooks. I can not begin to tell you how alive the stories become when someone is reading to you!! I'd get to work or home and not remember how I got there cause I was so engrossed in the story! Once, in the book Jackdaws by Ken Follett, the characters were peeking thru a window at German soldiers who had discovered their safe house and I yelled, "SHOOT THEM!! SHOOT THEM!!" at the car celiac disease player!!

 

I've loved all of Ken Follett's books, especially Pillars of the Earth and its sequel, most of Stephen King's... the earlier ones..., Isabella Allende's (sp?), Amy Tan's, any of the Bronte's, and so many others. At the moment I'm rereading Faulkner, having studied him intensely in college. Talk about the darker underside of the South!!
