Right now I'm reading and translating Marshmallow Magic and the Wild Rose Rouge by Karen McCombie at the same time. I really love the story, light, and it's very actual in life. The ending was really touching for me. I love it. I recommend this book, four stars out of five stars.

I am reading Forest House by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I have not gotten settled into it yet though. All the plot is just being laid out. But I love the time frame and allowing my imagination to explore the possibilities of that time.

I recently just finished reading a Janet Evanovich book. She writes a series about a female bounty hunter called Stephanie Plum. She currently has 12 books and just released a book called "Plum Lovin" which is a "in between numbers novel". It was a good, short read. These books are light hearted and humourous and they are very easy to read which is what I like. Right now I received a few books from a book club I am apart of and I am reading The Devil Wears Prada. I became interested after seeing the movie.

Whew, I start so many books. But, I'll just say one!!! Currently, I'm reading Eragon. I REALLY like it. The movie actually sparked my interest. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. (Who haven't read it of course!)

I'm currently reading I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe. It's about an extremely intelligent girl from the mountains of North Carolina attending Dupont University. It's very indepth. It's similar to the book Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld.

Emily, Eragon is a very good book! The movie was good, but not as good as the book. I hope you thoroughly enjoy it.

I've just finished reading the sequel of Power of One by Bryce Courtnay which is Tandia.

Not bad either. Haven't exposed myself to that style of writing in a long while so it was interesting to compare it to what I'm used to reading now.

Right now I am reading a novel by James Fenimore Cooper. It is one of the Leatherstocking Tales. It is "The Last of the Mohicans". I am reading this book for two reasons:

1. Cause I wanted to see what differences there were in the film and the book.

2. It is part of my long research essay for my english 251 class.

And as soon as I finish Bronte's book I will be reading:
The Hound of Baskerville by Sir A. Conan Doyle.

All of these I am reading for fun!

Right now I'm reading two books: 'Sense and Sensibility' by Jane Austen and 'The Dark Tower II: The Drawing Of The Three' by Stephen King. Very different, but in their own genre very good books both /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I'm reading a series called, Left Behind >The Kids<. I love these books, they're a bit smaller than my usual reading, but they're good.

And Mairead, have you read Where the Red Fern Grows? Or I like Pride and Prejudice, it's really good too.
