So, what are you reading (2010)?
« on: December 31, 2009, 10:47:33 pm »
Just finished:



Great story written in the late 80's about a team of commandos taking over a nuclear missile silo in the U.S. and attempting to start World War III. However, the apparent OCR scan they used to create the e-book was TERRIBLE!!! About 10 times in the book, God was COD, WWIII became WWHI, among numerous other errors. I asked for, and received, a refund from Amazon.

About to start:

    This is free at the moment. I'm really having trouble with the author's style and may not finish it.

    I have two holdovers from 2009 that I am continuing into the new year: The Dark Tide by Josh Lanyon and The Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner. Josh's book is really good and I am savoring it.

    Last night I finished Heartsick by Chelsea Cain, and I loved it! It is a psychological thriller, my favorite genre. I really enjoyed reading this book. For me, it was one of those that you want to keep reading, but you also don't want to read too fast and end it. I do plan on reading the other two in this series soon.



    My first book of 2010 is Under the Dome by Stephen King.

    I am currently reading Prime Time by Hank Phillipi Ryan and really enjoying it. I have already purchased book 2 in the 3 book series.

    Tabby...glad to hear you liked Heartsick. That one is on my list to read. Let us know about Under the Dome...I started it and then stopped as it moved really slowly I thought. I will pick it up again at another time and try again.

    Currently reading Gone for a Soldier, by our own KB author Jeff Hepple, and will probably finish that tonight.  Then on to the next ones in the series.

    Not sure about the next Kindle book after that yet, I have a ton of unread ones, but probably I'll just read through the accumulated samples first and do some weeding/shopping.

    Next on the list are some paper books.  One that I had started weeks ago and unfortunately never got around to finishing, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury  --  Greatest Closing Arguments in Modern Law.  Then there are two I got for Christmas, The Piano Teacher by Janice Lee and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. 

    Don't know anything about those last two yet.  But my mom gave them to me, so they're probably good.  (Then again, she also gave me a political autobiography, not my favorite genre at the best of times, and even less so when the "author" is someone whose grasp of geography [among other topics] is questionable.  But I promised my mom I would actually read it. :P)

    Oh, and I'm going to finish the Harry Potter series!  I never finished reading them, just through book two, but now DD has discovered them so I'm reading them as well so that we can talk about them (some parts might be a bit frightening to her, so I want to know what's happening).

    I'm reading Stephen King's Under the Dome. I had hoped to finish it in 2009 but had too much going on during the holidays. I am really enjoying it so far; about 75% through.

    I'm finishing up a really nice memoir about trying to make it in Hollywood and the world of publishing. For all the self-published Kindleholics around here, it seems like a good read...

    I just started Sea Of Monsters by Rick Riordan, I would like to finish the series and also the Sookie Stackhouse series.
    I also started Dracula which I had never read before. I would like to finish them all this year.

    There are a few new series I would love to start as well but am still waiting on all of the books in the series to be released for the Kindle.

    Why do authors let only part of series get released? That just seems silly to me.

    I had my list before I received my DX, now I'm not so sure. 

    I always used the library for my books but they currently do not have ebooks for loan.  I will probably take my list, get kindle pricing and put together a "budget."  Maybe I'll get lucky and some will be free or low cost :D

    I'm working on Duma Key at the moment.  After that it's Under the Dome for me.

    If DK takes a turn that I don't like (I'm already seeing some signs of this) I'm going to bail on it.  I'm a Stephen King reader way back but once in a while it goes the wrong way for me.

    I just finished Under the Dome today (started it last week).  Before that I read Dragonfly in Amber, so I'm a little tired after blowing through both of those on my vacation.  I'm thinking that I want a "fun" non-fiction read next, but I'm not sure what yet.

    My Kindle is re-charging at the moment (too many free book downloads the last 2 days, and battery life being not what it used to be) but when it is done, I will get back to reading All God's Creatures by Carolyn McSparren.  Her style seems so real that I had to check again to make sure  it was fiction.

    I want to go to my Amazon account, see which 10 books I bought first, and read those before the end of March. 
    I want to read The Drums of Autumn and The Fiery Cross of the Gabaldon series. 

    I have three more books in the Stephanie Plum series, but I'm saving them to read while I'm undergoing the radiation treatments.

    I just finished reading a funny and entertaining amateur sleuth mystery by new author, Barbara Deshong. The book is called Too Fat & Too Thin and was great fun. I'm about to start The Red Fox by Anthony Hyde. This thriller was written over 20 years ago and has been sitting on my TBR a long time, but I'm managing to work my way through the pile.

    I want to keep reading a mix of new and well known mystery authors, and try some fantasy this year as well.
