 To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading? Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos. Chick-lit about three very different women -- a perfect housewife, a working mother and a recent transplant from Manhattan. The writing is exceptional. And I'm coming to appreciate one of the characters (the perfect housewife) that I despised at the beginning of the book. Reminds me of the old saw about how every villain is the hero of his own story -- it's all about perspective, isn't it?

• What did you recently finish reading?  Bone Bed, the latest in the Scarpetta Series, by Patricia Cornwell. One of the best in the series in a long, long while. There are things I could quibble with, but why? It was a fun read that took some interesting twists along the way and I enjoyed it.

• What do you think you’ll read next? I'm feeling very Presidential these days. So I'll either pick up Listening In, the Kennedy White House tapes, or The President's Club.


  1. I'm going to download "Belong To Me" on your recommendation. I haven't been reading nearly enough so my plan is to devote way more time to it. I stopped reading Patricia Cornwell because everything seemed the same. Maybe I'll have to give it a shot. Reading "Gone Girl" now and so far liking it.

  2. I've been doing so much reading and so little blogging. Glad you've been keeping up so I can follow your literary adventures!

  3. Last? Against Paradise by Shawna LeMay. Currently? The Path to Ardroe by John Lent which is each character at a different stage of life but the same of trying to work out where and who they are and why. Next? Miss Canada (International) by rob mclennan which is a beautiful little chapbook made to look like a passport.

  4. I haven't finished anything lately but I've got three going. I need to just hunker down and finish something! So many good books!!
