The Gaslight Effect.... and finding out that I am both a Gaslightee and a Gaslighter too

This sounds interesting, can you tell us more about it?

Just finished reading "Into The Wild" thanks to seeing a couple people in this thread recommending it. This book really resonated with me. I couldn't stop thinking about it long after putting it down!

I just finished the Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule. It's a true crime story about Ted Bundy. The interesting thing is that the author knew Ted way before he was the subject of the police investigation and she had a book contract on the subject before she knew that her friend was the suspect. It's a really interesting view on what it's like to be close to someone and not really know them.

Finished Water for Elephants a couple of days ago, and I thought it was a great, easy read. Poor Kinko.

Finally hit the 550 pg mark of The Brothers Karamazov... it's taking me for-ev-er to get through it, but my goal is to have it done by the end of July.

In the in-between times, I'm going through a book called Essential Manners for Men. And now I know the proper way to introduce two people.

I'm excited for my next Jennifer Crusie novel that I've mooched from someone in Australia... it's in the mail... can't wait!

I just finished "The Help". It was very good. "Redeeming Love" & "Cane River" are two of my favorites, I reread them at least once a year...

Just finished "The White Tiger" takes place in India, a different sort of book. But I did enjoy it. A story with cultural slant. There is murder for those who need a little blood in their books.
I am now starting "A Certain Slant of Light" so far its fast paced with a supernatural story line. Not sure where it's headed yet, but my 40 minutes on the elliptical felt like 5, because I was entertained the entire time.

Do you like it Willow?

I read it a few months ago and was disappointed.

So far, but I'm only a quarter of the way though it, and it has dramatically shifted into another story. I was reading about Corrigan, and now I've just started reading about some other guy who lives on Park Avenue (I think)

So, I guess I would say it is too soon to tell?

I'm reading a book that I bought at a garage sale called Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. Oddly enough it is about an affair, but I'm not triggering.

I started it at noon and I'm on page 300. Just can't seem to put it down.

I recently finished reading "Eve" ... a book about the 'first woman' by Elissa Elliott. Next I picked up "John Adams" by David McCullough. I'm only on page 58, and it's slow going for me; I usually zip right through books, but this is kind of detailed and almost too dry for my preference.

I'll be ready for some light reading as soon as I'm done with this. I'm not going to rush it... I love history.

I just finished "Into the Wild" and "killer angels." They were both on the rising junior reading list and I got them for my son but he left for camp before he got to read them. I enjoyed them both. Into the Wild made me really happy that none of my kids has a wanderlust gene in them.

I just started "the zookeeper's wife" and it's amazing. I thought I knew alot about the Holocaust but I am learning things I never knew. I want DD to read it because she takes being Jewish and living in America too much for granted.

I also enjoyed "Water for Elephants" which I read last summer.

I got about one-third through "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" but returned it because it just did not grab my interest.

As for Ann Rule - she rules! I have read everything I can by her; I am fascinated by true crime and psychology.

I am going to look for some of the books mentioned here.

I love the Ann Rule books also, and yeah, the one about Bundy was fascinating.

I reread The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. I remember loving it as a child. Also reread the Celestine Prophecy, and

The Book of Ruth was very well written, and hard to put down.

Same with Angela's Ashes...

I am just starting The Deep End of the Ocean by Mitchard, and I think that book on Ann Boleyn sounds pretty interesting, I will put it on my "next" list.

Following my trip up to Monterey, I decided that it was time I read Steinbeck's "Cannery Row".

It's a quick read. So far I'm enjoying it. Very colorful characters!

I'm reading two books:

How Did You Get This Number by Sloane Crosby (author of I Was Told There Would be Cake), a collection of essays. If you like David Sedaris you'll like Crosby.

I'm also slogging my way through The Fiery Cross, 4th in the Outlander series. Just like I was warned, it is a lot of rain and dirty diapers so far.

Just finished Eat, Pray, Love. It was good but not great.

Water for Elephants was REALLY good, an easy read.

I also read A Thousand Splendid Suns not long ago, which is now one of my favorite books ever. So good, but I cried through a lot of it.

The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks was an enjoyable book. It's not about an affair but I identified with the struggles the couple is going through in their marriage. Cried a lot again. I cry a lot.
