What is everyone reading? Does anyone have any good suggestions?
If I find an author that I like I tend to go on reading jags until I wear that author out. Right now I'm reading all of the books by Lee Child, who I read about on someone's blog. I usually have a number of books going at any time, and one of them is always a mystery/thriller/espionage type book. Until I finish the Child books, they will be filling that category. I have several books by other authors on hold at the library, but the wait for books by popular authors in these genres is often as much as six months.
I also usually have one self-help type book going. Most of them don't do me much good. I'm still a disorganized procrastinator. But I have been reading/working on a book for the last week that is really helping me at least get my office organized. It is Getting Things Done. I'm hoping it will help me do just that!
I'm also trying to keep up with my two oldest children, so I try to read one classic at least every month or so. I just finished The Magnificent Ambersons and it was such easy reading that I feel like I cheated! I enjoyed it tremendously, so I just added The Gentleman from Indianapolis to my pile. But more Tarkington will have to wait until I finish Swann's Way, because I just picked that up from the library. This may be the first work of literature in a long time that I read before either of my older children.
In the non-fiction department I just started Devil in the White City. I also have Larson's Thunderstruck on hold. I usually have some kind of book on language or writing going, but I currently have two of those on hold, so I guess I'll just have to spend a bit more time with Jack Reacher.
