I try to read a wide range of literature. Over the last few years I have come to enjoy Sci-Fi, especially if it's written by Iain M. Banks, his books are always wonderful to read.

My favorite kind of books are contemporary romances. Never really cared for the Harlequin-type books. I love authors such as Kristin Hannah, Adriana Trigini and Sophie Kinsella who aren't really romance authors but incorporate enough romance into their books to make me happy!

I also have been reading a lot of Young Adult books (even though I'm in my 40's and don't have kids!). It's refreshing to read a book that doesn't have a lot of swearing or sex. That stuff gets old fast, IMO.

Books on our bedside table September 21, 2007 5:48 AM

hi guys! so, what book's on our bedside table these days? mine is "A Garden of Woman's Wisdom: A Secret Haven for Renewal" by Raylene Veltri. it's about certain flowers and their symbolic meanings in the lives of a woman. It also talks about the myth and certain traditions that the flower is being used. It's nice.  [ send green star]

OK... so I have weird ways of choosing books. I see so many every day that it's hard to decide which ones I want to read... but I saw Bad Luck and Trouble Lee Child's newest book the other day, and thought... "wow, he's hot!" so I ended up grabbing his first Jack Reacher book Killing Floor and OMG! it is phenomenal!!!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi Stephanie, sounds interesting! I mean the manner of her writing. Isn't it nice to sometimes read something which is presented in a different way? Like also the manner Debbie Macomber wrote her "Between Friends" novel. it's all in the forms of letter writing... the snail mail type of writing. but as the technology advanced to a higher level, an e-mail form was included. it's interesting and it's not boring.

Hello everyone! On my bedside table I have 3 books. I love fantasies, specifically set in the Renaissance period, and with a bit of romance in them (). They fascinate me to the highest extent, the three books I have. They're all by Mary Hoffman, an excellent writer. The books are all in the Stravaganza trilogy, but she is writing another installment, which I cannot wait for. She has also written another book called the Falconer's Knot. The thing I find most interesting about her books is that she doesnt use chapters, but symbols to indicate when she's shifting to another character, which she does periodically. Then, towards the middle of the book the characters end up intertwining, or meeting, and then part. She is a fantastic writer and I recommend her books if u like fantasies.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hi Geri! Nice to meet you! Yes, small is really cozy too. Our house is kinda small so you can just easily snuggle in a corner. What i do is put books i'm currently reading in every spot where there's a chair or a couch. Right now in my living room, the book is an autobiography type of a local woman here in our country, it's called "Amusing Grace". her name is Grace and she has multiple sclerosis. it's nice, very heartwarming. on my bedside table is by Debbie Macomber, "Dakota Born". in the kitchen is a culinary book. anyway, i'm just checking in here from time to time for 3 weeks because i'm at my husband's hometown and the internet connection is not so developed yet. i miss my internet back home actually! I hope everyone's having a great time!  [ send green star]

Sorry for some of the awkward sentences, I was typing very fast, right before I had to leave the house. I Didn't have time to proof read.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hello all !

While I usually read spy adventure novels and other fiction I just finished a finished a fascinating book about John Lennon and the Beatles. The book is called John and is written by Cynthia Lennon, John's first wife. The book takes you behind the scenes of John and the Beatles, and has several pages of pictures. Some of the pictures are rare photos  before the Beatles became famous, and there are some shots of John's family as well. The book answers a few questions - for me anyway. It well worth a read.

I definitely agree with you, country decor is very warm and cozy, and yes I read the other Country mags also, I live in a small town and love everything about it.  Small also means cozy to me.  Nice to meet you!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Me again Geri! We seem to have similar interests in what we read. I enjoy reading country living and other similar magazines too. I actually collect magazines with a "country style" theme and features like Country Woman, Country Sampler, Country Collectibles and other magz with the word "country" in the title. I like to read the features about Antiques and Collectibles. I also like to get ideas on how to make our house look country style because i find it so cozy and warm. Anyway, keep posting!  [ send green star]
