    Me: Stephen King's "Under The Dome".

    The Borrowers. Read it to my Zoe from her Nook. Fine writing and an old-timey feel to it. Quote nice, actually. But then I could probably read her the ingredients list on the side of a box of Cheerios and with her curled in the crook of my arm it would be time well spent.

    "The Walk" and "Miles to Go" by Richard Paul Evans. All of his books are wonderful.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Just finished the Sherlockian last week, and read (finally) The Three Musketeers just before. Working my way through Sarum by Edward Rutherford right now.

    Loved Under the Dome - Showtime is making a mini-series of it that I'm looking forward to!
    I just finished The Hunger Games Trilogy. Getting ready to start Battle Royale by Koushun Takami.

    Finished the "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" series about 3 weeks or a month ago, and started on A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire. I read the first two "Wicked" books when there were only 2, and finally found a decently-priced used copy of the third (and subsequently fourth) in the series. This one was a little slow getting into, but now that I'm into the "meat and potatoes" of the book, it's a lot faster-going.

    The other day I finished reading Professor Woggle-bug and the Frogman of Oz. I enjoyed every moment in it.

    Just finished Wayne of Gotham by Tracy Hickman. It's a Batman novel that goes deeper into the past of Bruce's parents. I was intrigued by many of the plot twists, but it is an overall awesome book.

    Totally awesome. If you haven't read it yet I highly reccomend The Patchwork Girl of Oz.

    As for myself I just finished Tina Fey's Bossypants and have started A Game of Thrones.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    I went from top to bottom over the past few weeks. Read Anna Karenina, which I managed to find both enjoyable and somewhat tedious at the same time, and then (basically, because of a bet) read the entire Twilight series. Now I can say honestly that I've read them. Let us never speak of it again.

    Excellent to hear. All the reviews I've read are agreeing with me as well, so that's a plus.

    I mainly only read (auto)biographies nowadays, just can't wrap my mind around reading fiction novels these days. Last book I read was Total Recall ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger.
