Anyone else talking about books?

Hey ladies!

I know book discussions isn't why we're initially here for, but anyone else who likes to read?

Last night, I finished reading The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks. Anyone else wants to share what they've read recently?

    I recently finished A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson. Took me an age to get through it even though I enjoyed it - too busy knitting and sewing in recent times and not enough hours in the day. Just started a Marian Keyes book - Making It Up As I Go Along, which is just a collection of articles she's written.

    I read all the time, but I'm such a lowbrow in this regard that I'm a little embarrassed to describe what I read here, especially since I was an English major in college and totally love Shakespeare. However, trying to overcome my shyness - now I mostly read mysteries that take place in foreign countries, e.g., Elizabeth George, Anne Perry, Henning Mankell, Arnaldur Indridason. I used to read Stephen King, but kind of lost interest in that.

    When I get really involved in a book I find it almost impossible to put down - have read in the bathtub, washing with one hand, holding book in the other. :laughing6:
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    I would never be embarrassed about what I read! Everyone has different tastes and enjoys different things, nothing to do with low/highbrow. If you're reading anything it's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
    Though I do get kinda judgey when it comes to Mills and Boon and the like.......

    I'm reading "No One Is Coming to Save Us" by Stephanie Powell Watts. It's really good.

    I've just finished that Marian Keyes book that I see I started in July, very slack! Have now started Jojo Moyes, Me Before You. Sadly I know the end because it was hard to avoid when the film came out.

    Being quite the introvert,  when I choose a book to read it is almost always an autobiography written by someone who has lead an exciting life. It has been a long time since I have picked up an actual book to read, this computer has made a real impact on my book reading

    I'm reading Period Repair Manual by Lara Briden, a Canadian naturopath based in Australia. I have been on a concerted efffort for the past year to get a handle on the issues with my cycle. This effort started with beginning charting my cycle and learning about it with Toni Weschler's books. Toni Weschler is famous for Taking Charge of Your Fertility, but I found it to be a bit overwhelming because it is geared toward women who are trying to get pregnant, and I wanted to start charting for general awareness. Toni Weschler wrote a book for teens to start charting called Cycle Savvy, and that was more at my level :p. The awareness I got from charting really helped a lot and I was able to begin resolving some of the problems I was having. But The Period Repair Manual is giving me the solutions I really need.

    Not familiar with that book but so glad you've found something that's providing help.
