Right now I am reading The Great Gatsby

It is pretty good If you pay real close attention you can pick up on some of the humor and it makes the book a whole lot better.

Ooooh, I love that book. Have you read The Notebook? Did you know there's a movie version coming out June... 25th I think. I've read all his books except Three Weeks With My Brother, which I'm gonna read after I finish The Dive From Clausen's Pier by Ann Packer. I absolutely love all of Nicholas Sparks' books... hopefully the movie version of TN will do it justice... which "Message In A Bottle" didn't. That was a horrid movie version of a wonderful book.

Yeah, it was good. Now I'm reading Semper Fi, and I'm almost done.
I get a lot of books off of the internet and transfer them to my palm pilot.
I can go through books like you wouldn't believe....
So, it's a good thing that I have the Palm Pilot, other wise, I would be spending A LOT of money at the book stores. (Not that I don't already... )

Oh yeah, Misty... it's one of the best investments that I've ever made.
It keeps Heidi REALLY happy, because I can go through 50 books a month.
Do you have ANY idea how expensive that can get?

I'm currently reading, Sahara, by Clive Cussler. I had heard of him, but never read his books. A friend at work started reading this book Sunday night, and she couldn't put it down. So, she brought it to me, and I like it. It's currently in the makes for a movie, with Matthew McConaughey as Dirk Pitt.

I've just put down Angels and Demons. I didn't finish it. I feel like the only person in the world who didn't like Angels and Demons. His constant encounters with life threatening situations put me in mind of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Do you remember the part where the Assassin was about to end Robert's life? He had him dangling from a banister several stories up and was about to stomp on his fingers to make him let go and fall. His love interest had earlier been kidnapped by the Assassin and he had her tied up in chains.....chains, no less.
but she dislocated her shoulder and escaped from the chains (shades of Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon) and saved our hero with half a second to spare. That's when I stopped reading.
It just stretched my imagination a little too much.

I read the DaVinci Code first and maybe that's where I went wrong. I was fascinated with the "Devine Equasion" . My math loving friend tried the measurement from head to floor, from shoulder to floor, and navel to floor and found that it didn't come out exactly to 1.618 but wasn't far off. I do believe that lots of stuff in the Bible was written by menopausal old men who diapproved of everything (especially sexuality) and so they entered their own ideas and presented them as having come directly from God. I imagine they would have a hard time with a Mary Magdalene who was an intelligent and successful business woman who might have been married to Jesus.

I just read The Taking by Dean Koonz. How can a book that starts out with such promise turn so boring and totally unbelievable. I realize that it's science fiction which I love normally, but this had no essence of reality.

Sounds just like the bible to me... written by men who disapproved of everything and decided to write stories and make them laws, and forcing others to live by them. Passing judgement on those that didn't live according to their standards, and therefore, by Gods supposed standards as well.

I heard it wasn't as funny as his other books. I've never disliked anything he's done, so I hope I'll still enjoy it: but if it doesn't have a little humor I'll be disappointed.

I'm just finishing Phantoms by Dean Koontz at the moment.

Hi Lallthway29,

I read Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas and totally enjoyed it. I'm really looking forward to Sam's Letters to Jennifer. I have it coming from my bookclub next month. These two books are a real departure from normal for James Patterson.
THey're certainly an improvement over the Alex Cross novels. He was way too egotistical for me.
