Finished Colm Tóibin's "Brooklyn" last night. I've already forgotten most of it, though the Irish chicklet is none too honorable and all too triggery.

Read Outliers (Malcolm Gladwell) and am starting on the "U" in Sue Grafton's series. Then will read Outliers again. Slogged through his Tipping Point... LOVED Outliers. Then maybe the second The Girl Who... [whatever she did after she got her dragon tattoo].

The Help, Kathryn Stockett. A good read.

Just bumping to keep this active.

I use to be a voracious reader and then with kids, work, etc totally stopped. Thanks to a gift of a Kindle from my sister (which I did nothing with for 1 1/2 years) and all of your suggestions - I'm reading like crazy again.

I just finished Water for Elephants. I loved how she wrote about the Jacob when he was older (plus I have always liked Hal Holbrook so I kept picturing him in the trailer). I definitely could have done without the sex scenes (and I am not prudish - I just thought some of them were gross and not necessary). I saw the movie may be rated R - I hope they tone it down as of course with Robert Pattinson in it - my DD wants to see it.

I am now on to The Help.

I am reading The Girl Who Played with Fire.

I just finished reading the Lost Hero. It is technically young people's literature, but it was still good. The author has now written 6 books, similar to Harry Potter style. Instead the characters in the books are all Greek demi-gods. My daughter is reading them with me.

The author of "Water for Elephants" has a new book titled "The Ape House." I would highly recommend it.

Working my way through Codependent No More and a re-read of I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb. It seems from this thread that I will have to pick up Water for Elephants

A month ago I read Never Let Me Go and liked it, despite the frustration that many people seem to have toward the ending. Right now I'm working through Room by Emma Donoghue. I say "work" because it really is hard for me to get into. Her narrator is a five year-old boy, but I don't think it sounds at all what the five year-olds I know sould like. I think it sounds like an adult writer trying to sound like she thinks a kid would talk like, but that she isn't able to pull it off. Of course, many people disagree with me because the book was nominated for a Man Booker prize, so yeah.

The best book I've read this year, however, is Essays in Love by Alain de Botton. He's my new favourite author, and yesterday I just ponied up twenty bucks to buy his book How Proust Can Change Your Life. With chapters like "How to Read for Yourself," "How to Suffer Successfully," and "How to Put Books Down," I know I'll enjoy it. Do check out Essays in Love, definitely the best book without an infidelity focus that I've read in the last year.

I just finished "Room," and I, too, worked my way through it, but for the exact opposite reason you did. I think the voice was perfect and found it very creepy. I did finish it and was glad I did.

I'm on book 2 of the Outlander series. What an addiction this is going to be! Laundry, groceries, work - none of it matters now.

Tuscandreamer - we've read all of the Percy Jackson/Lost Heroes/Red Pyramid books. They are really good, too.

Love the Outlander series. I have yet to find any others in the same genre that compare.

I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb.

That was one of my favorite books. Last book my dad and I shared before he died.

I'm now reading Dreamfever.

I love Jennifer Weiner and Lisa Jewell.
