    I love the Narnia books! I've read them all.

    I've finished Madame Bovary (it's officially one of my favorites- I LOVED IT!)
    Now I'm reading "Brideshead Revisited."
    So far, I'm liking it a lot, and it's MUCH better than the movie!

    In the rotation right now is Going Green: A Wise Consumer's Guide to a Shrinking Planet by the mother and daughter team of Sally and Sadie Kneidel (as I had a feeling, ethanol isn't going to be the solution to our energy/environmental woes).

    He's a Stud, She's a [unwrite] and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know by Jessica Valenti.

    Re-reading The Serpent and The Rainbow by Wade Davis. I'd nearly forgotten just how badly the so-called movie adaption missed the point. There's a lot of honest science out there behind so much of what modern civilization writes off as mumbo jumbo.

    I just finished Brideshead Revisited. It was excellent!
    The library hasn't reopened yet, so I don't have another book to read.

    It appears we haven't been reading in quite some time.

    I didn't start it yet but I'm going to be reading: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

    Re: What book are you reading right now?

    One or two books that I probably shouldn't get into around here, but in the rotation that I'm willing to share at the moment are--

    The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future, by Mark Bauerlein. Scary stuff.

    Becoming Batman: The Possibility of a Superhero, by E. Paul Zehr. The premise of the book is determining if it's possible and what it would take to become as physically capable as the Caped Crusader. Seems the answer is yes, it's plausible, but you'd have to be as serious as cancer and have about as many friends, and you wouldn't have a lot of trade-in value left on you after a brief career as the scourge of the underworld. While I love the concept, the content is pure ZZZZZZZZZZZ...........

    Now They Call Me Infidel, by Nonie Darwish. Brave lady, and we need more like her right now.
    "The society that draws too great of a distinction between its scholars and its warriors will end up having its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools." --probably Thucydides

    Re: What book are you reading right now?

    I'm about half way through with Chainfire by Terry Goodkind.
    After this I am ready for the newest Anita Blake series book, Bullet, by Laurell K. Hamilton. Then is it back to the final trilogy in the Sword of Truth series.

    I just finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, a lovely and inspiring book, I'm going to read it again as soon as I'm done with Committed by the same author.

    I am soooo excited about this movie! Whenever I see the preview I get choked up, the book really touched me. (Especially the scene with Richard from Texas!)

    Re: What book are you reading right now?

    Good to see this thread resurrected!!!

    I am still reading the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan. S&S type stuff at its best. I'd be long finished by now if I wasn't so easily distracted by books like...

    the Foxfire Series. I'm sure plenty of you are familiar with this series, which is a compilation of the Foxfire magazine. It is basically an instruction manual for self-sufficient living and I would recommend it to anyone interested in someday quitting their job and living "off the grid". I would also recommend it to anyone who is interested in the "old timey" ways of doing stuff (like building houses, growing and cooking your own food, making your own moonshine, etc.).

    If we can dream it, we can do it
