What are you reading?

Chers Amis,

What are you reading these days? Anything interesting that you would recommend? Are you participating in any of the 4×10 Reading Challenges where readers are striving to read 4 books in 10 different subject areas in 2009? I am, but in an organic, free thinking, rabbit-trial-y way. I haven’t designated a list of books to be tackled or categories as of yet. I am just selecting books that call to me from the library shelves. I have put thumbnails of my current reads in this post and hope to make a Bookshelf Page on the blog shortly to keep track. I do love perusing others’ lists of ideas though, Here are a few topical areas to consider if you are planning your own foray into the written word. Please share your favorites!

    I recently read Dogs of Babel and The Lovely Bones…totally out of my normal reading but I was looking for something different and these were good. Both had me shedding a few tears, which is TOTALLY not me, I’m not a crier.

    I also just read Brimstone (can’t remember the author) and it hooked me quick. Finished it in a few days so now I’m looking for something new again. I usually read Stephen King/Koontz/Anne Rice type stuff but I’m trying to sprout new interests (not to mention I’ve already read all of them already).

    I have several book lists posted…mostly children, but also a fairly current one about what I’m reading.
