Congo

Congo - Michael Crichton It's okay. I liked Andromeda Strain and Jurassic Park better. But maybe good summer reading?

Among the Thugs

Among the Thugs - Bill Buford Interesting in regard to football hooliganism and pack mentality. A very good read!

The Hobbit

The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien, Alan Lee I've tried to read this book many times, but I just can't get into it. I've given up because I guess it's not meant to be.

The Wrinkle in Time Quintet Boxed Set (A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, An Acceptable Time)

The Wrinkle in Time Quintet - Digest Size Boxed Set - Madeleine L'Engle This is one of those books I wished would never end! I loved it as a child and I love it still.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - L. Frank Baum I went my entire 37 years without having ever read an Oz book, so now I'm making up for lost time. This one was very interesting and compelling enough that I have committed to reading the rest of the series. There's a lot more to Oz than what you see in the movie!The biography of L. Frank Baum is very interesting as well.

A Life on the Road

A Life on the Road - Charles Kuralt One of the greatest storytellers of all time. Anything he's written is well worth reading.

The Hot Zone: A Terrifying True Story

The Hot Zone - Richard Preston If the idea of a disease that causes people to bleed out under their skin freaks you out, then don't read this book.Otherwise, enjoy! :)

The Shining

The Shining - Stephen King Scary!

This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness

This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness (Darkness Set, Books #1 and #2) - Frank Peretti It's interesting to think there's a "parallel universe," for lack of a better description--an active spirit world all around us.

360º New York

360º New York - Nick Wood This book stays on our coffee table. It's weird--you want to wrap all the pages around into circles. Pretty cool.

A Girl of the Limberlost

A Girl of the Limberlost - Gene Stratton-Porter I found this book surprisingly good--in an Anne of Green Gables kind of way.

The Power of One: A Novel

The Power of One - Bryce Courtenay This is in my top ten books of all time. READ IT!!!

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir

Angela's Ashes - Frank McCourt Horrifying poverty and hilarious narrative. You just can't beat that.

Jitterbug Perfume

Jitterbug Perfume - Tom Robbins Favorite Robbins novel!

When the Sons of Heaven Meet the Daughters of the Earth

When the Sons of Heaven Meet the Daughters of the Earth - Fernanda Eberstadt This is a book no one has ever heard of but me. :PIt's the story of a starving artist in NY, who basically gets "discovered" by a rich woman with nothing better to do than sleep with starving artists. That's a terrible description, I know, but I enjoyed it and read it several times.

My Sister's Keeper: A Novel

My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult I read this book in two days and finished with my mouth hanging open. Dude.
