now that i finally have some time off work and school, i’d like to get back into my kindle and read some GOOD books.
the last books i finished on it were: The Host, Left at the Altar, and My Name is Memory.
i’ve had a really hard time getting into the girl with the dragon tatoo…
Any good recommendations? Fiction and non-fiction both 🙂

Well it’s a very easy read, but “The Book of Awesome” is a lot of fun, and gave me a lot of laughs. I’m also in love with any Mitch Albom books. Unfortunately I haven’t had a lot of time to read lately, but I will take time this holiday season to read. I’ve also had a hard time getting into the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I kept starting it, but get bored.

Maybe not your cup-of-tea, but I read the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson. I have completed books 1-6 and plan to go get 7 and 8 this weekend.
They are extremely interesting if you like CSI type stuff.

I just started reading the Wheel of Time series. Its fantasy and I am sooooo not normally a Sci Fi girl. Its similar to Lord of the Rings type story, but I think its actually better. You do have to start at the first book though.

Life of Pi
I second the rec for the House of Night series – it’s fluffy and fun
If you’re at all a fan of sci/fi or fantasy, here’s a more extensive list:
Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey
Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind
The Eyre Affair by Jaspar Fforde

@lefeymw: If you end up enjoying The Wheel of Time, try Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind. I actually enjoyed him as an author far more than Robert Jordan, but your mileage may vary! 🙂

Oh, and sorry to keep spamming the thread. A great set of mystery books are those written by Kathy Reichs. She is the author behind the books that the TV show character Bones is based on. The book character is vastly different, but as a person who normally doesn’t read that genre, I truly enjoyed them. The first book is called Deja Dead.
