I'm reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" My daughter and I both are. She will need to read this for School in the fall, and she thought it would be fun for her and I to read it together and discuss it when it's done. Not a usual summer read but thought it was a neat idea for her and I to spend some time together.

This summer I am reading Anne Rivers Siddons, one of my favorite authors. I already finished Islands and am working on Sweetwater Creek. Since becoming a mommy I sure haven't read much!

Congrats on your blog success. I love it so I can see why others do too! :)

Laura W said...

I'm reading a book that a friend suggested, The Goose Girl. I figured since I finished Harry Potter, I may as well stick with the young-adult theme for another book. :) lol (so far it's not that intriguing, so I'm not sure I recommend it ... we'll see.:)

Recently read "Marley & Me" by John Grogan - very funny dog story - I think most any pet owner or former pet owner can relate.

Sweet candy! I haven't read to much lately. I don't have much time reading books lately. I spend to much time reading blogs, SCS, and mags. But I do enjoy reading them all. Thanks for a chance.

Peggy S said...

Reminds me I need to read ;)! I loved The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri - about a family and a boy who grows to understand who his parents are and where they come from. She also wrote an amazing book of short stories called "Interpreter of Maladies."

I've just finished an autobiography by Billy Hopkins called Our Kid, borrowed from the library. This recounts his childhood tales in 1st world war Manchester, UK. I also read Harry Potter - a great way to finish the series.

I'm reading a book that a co-worker recommended called Raising Blaze. It is very very good.

melissa roth said...

I'm joining the Harry Potter fan club like several others here, because that is the book I'm also currently reading. Generally though, I can usually be found reading a book by Nora Roberts as I love anything that she writes.

Beth said...

Oh, I see Jen is reading my fav--To Kill a Mockingbird. Right now I'm reading a Maeve Binchy book-- can't remember the name. I love this author. Her stories are based out of Ireland and is a good light read. Very popular author.

Rosella said...

I don't have a lot of time to read. But, I just started reading "The bathtub is overflowing but I feel drained". Hoping it will inspire me in being a MOM!
Thanks for sharing such great candy!

I bought Second Chance by Jane Green last night at Costco so will be starting that one tonight. I generally read all of Oprah's recommendations too.

The last book I read was Nicholas
Sparks' latest, "Dear John". I enjoy his novels because they usually take place in eastern NC - where I live.

Cris said...

I'm just about done with "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen. Congrats on all the hits!

michaela said...

I haven't had a lot of time to read this summer so I've been on the same book for awhile now. I'm trying to get through The Quickie by James Patterson. I really do enjoy reading though & this is a fun contest to get ideas on what books I need to check into. Thanks!

Patty from Ohio said...

Congratulations! Currently reading The Devil Wears Prada - didn't see the movie and a friend loaned me the book.

I just finished reading "Mango Sunsets" by Dorothy Benton Frank. It was great! All of her books are set on the coast of SC. I am getting ready to start reading "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon. My daughter is a sophomore in college and this is the summer reading book that they chose the whole school to read. She finished it in 3 days, said it was that good!
Congrats on the hits and thanks for the chance at the awesome blog candy!

Enjoy!

I am actually slowly working on " The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln", a treasury od quotations, anecdotes, and observations, by James C. Humes. This was a great man, and can only imagine what he would think about, and how he would live in 2007. dorothy Freber

grandmascraps said...

Congratulations... I just finished this book last night: "Exact Revenge" by Tim Green. This is the second book I have read by him. I picked it up because this author refers to a part of NY where I have lived, Central NY. It is fun to read all the references to places I know about or have actually been too.
