    Whats everyone reading now and/or read lately

    As for me haven't been doing that much reading lately. Found that I hardly read any more as well. Have to say do have times like this and others don't. Guess it depends on the book itself as well.

    To the End of the Land, David Grossman and Jessica Cohen (Translator)

    A Midwife's Tale : The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary, 1785-1812, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. Already viewed the dvd part of it and it was worth the watch. Now, I can't wait the book to learn even more about Ms Ballard.

    I Was a Dancer, Jacques d'Amboise

    The Liars’ Club, Cherry, Lit: Memoirs, Mary Kerr

    Finished reading

    Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, Bristol Palin and Nancy French

    It was definitely worth the purchase and read.

    This is taken from another thread and/response that I have done regarding Bristol's mother and Tripp's grandmother.

    What is/are Sarah Palin stance/s on family leave act (maternity, paternity, etc)? The reason why I'm asking this here because she didn't bring up in neither of her books. In my opinion this should be a paid one. It should also nation and worldwide as well.

    Is there anyone else on here besides whom are getting beyond tired of her still being in the spotlight? That also goes her putting her husband, kids, rest of her family, and friends being in the spotlight and etc. Even though I'm still like her as a person then a politician.

    She should just go back to her husband and kids. Instead being in the spotlight. Do feel sorry for her kids and the rest of family and everyone whom is associated with her. Because politics have truly ruined her and her husband for sure. Yeah I could be wrong about this.

    Finished reading these few books a few mo back.

    The Lost Girls: Three Friends. Four Continents.: One Unconventional Detour Around the World, Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett, Amanda Pressner.It was worth the read. Especially, returning the hardcover because found it was little worn. Had to wait until the paperback was released to read it.

    Mountain of Crumbs: A Memoir, Elena Gorokhova a week ago. It was worth read. Especially, since found I learned more about the former Soviet Union then what I already knew about before reading your memoir. Can't wait to read more of Ms Gorokhova's life and/or her mothers life now.

    A Father's Love: One Man's Unrelenting Battle to Bring His Abducted Son Home, David Goldman. WOW what a memoir this was and thank you, Mr. Goldman for writing about your ordeal to get Sean back home.

    I'm getting ready to start Game of Thrones; my best friend is already way past the first book so I need to catch up.

    Aside from reading textbooks about SQL, CSS and ASP I am also reading some fiction.

    The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King
    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (In Swedish)
    The Picture Of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde
    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley


    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand *shudders*

    Oh, I am also reading The Web Application's Hackers Handbook; Discovering and Exploiting Security Flaws and a John Lennon biography.

    Those are the current ones I am reading.

    Voltaire's CANDIDE, Seneca's ON BENEFITS, Jean-Paul Sartre's NO EXIT and Three Other Plays, and Charles Baudelaire's LES FLEURS DU MAL.

    I am also reading Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe for the millionth time, because Game of Thrones has me craving knights, men-at-arms, slaughter, medieval brutality, and suchlike. And these are the moments we strive to recapture. I, for one, quite enjoy modern medicine, and not having to amputate my entire arm because an arrow nicked my finger.

    Taciturn and prudent, and in war daring, should a king's children be;
    joyous and liberal every one should be until his hour of death.

    Good choice. A Dance With Dragons came out as soon as I finished the series so now I'm still not finished with the series.

    The most recent books I've read are: "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," "The Late, Lamented Molly Marx" and "Nefertiti." And last night, I started reading a werewolf book called "Nightshade."

    I also do commissions, so if you're interested in having me paint something specifically for you, just contact me. Mention that you're an MW member, and get a 5% discount on your specially commissioned piece. And if the piece has an animal as the subject, I'll see to it that future sales of the prints also benefit a rescue organization devoted to that species/breed.)

    I have been slowly re-reading Stephen King's The Stand since 7/11 when I got my oral surgery done. Something about that story has helped me keep my mind off the pain of having my remaining 21 teeth removed and dentures seated.

    I just got myself a fancypants Kindle a couple weeks ago so I've been doing a lot of reading. Just got through Loki by Mike Vasish and the first 2 books in the Myst series The Book of Atrus and the Book of Ti'anna.

    Almost finished "A Dance with Dragons" - the whole series is like "crack on paper". But I have had to walk away from it for a little while (I got WAY to involved). I have been to distressed but getting back on the wagon now (I've recovered) and will finish dance with dragons before the new year. That will give a little while to recover and psyche myself for the next installment - out in 2012.
