    What book have you read most recently?
    Prodigal God by Timothy Keller

    Was it good?
    Very good, no matter what your Christian denomination. Not my usual reading material, but I was delightfully surprised. It gave me lots to think about.

    What is your favorite book?
    Southern Living Annual Recipe Books.. no particular year.

    What book was really hard to read?

    It took me forever to read Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice. I was really into her books at the time, but I never could finish that one. It bored me.

    What is your favorite book? There are lots...for a long time it was Catcher in the Rye

    What book was really hard to read? Crime and Punishment. He feels guilty, he doesn't care, he feels guilty, he doesn't care...for like 500 pages. Make up your mind!

    She kind of freaked out.  This was at the premiere of the first Pirates movie, so he wasn't as huge back then, but it was still a big deal.

    Orlando Bloom ... you have not worked in so long, but I still drool over you ...

    My Name Is Not, make your way over to Cracked.com when you've got some free time, and read pretty much anything Twilight related (Sober is best, lol), you will just love it, I swears. Actually, pretty much anybody who read the series and didn't come out thinking "Wow, that Stephenie Meyer is a genius" (So everybody with more than 1 brain cell, lol) will get major "lulz" out of it.

    FI told me about one Twilight review where the reviewer couldn't remember Bella's name, so he referred to her as "Pants," in that she's so completely hollow and featureless that any girl can put her on like a pair of pants and turn the book into her own little holodeck porn.

    When the first movie came out, the guy at filmdrunk.com pointed out that "Bella Swan" is the 12 year old girl equivalent of "Hercules J. Billionaire."

    Blackfire: OMG! I'm so excited somebody else has read him!

    FI and I seriously have handed those books to like everybody we know that reads, even if it's normally not their style, we just tell everybody "You don't understand, they're just awesome!".

    Incredibly dorky fact: FI has actually named Wow characters Azoth and Regnus.

    Yea Meg!  I had a friend read them, but she said they were too violent for her.  Anyways, Brent Weeks is amazing and I love the ending of the books!  Seriously consider Carol Berg.  She has a similar style and is also a new author.  I used to live around the same area that she did and went to her book signings and she is the sweetest old lady!

    Maybe this has been touched on, but I read an interview with the twilight author and the reason that Bella is so plain is because the author wanted the girls who would read it to be able to impose their own personalities into the character.

    Carol Berg ... yes, I will be making a note of that. FI and I are always looking for new stuff. He's way more into fantasy than I am. He's been pushing for me to get through "The Wheel Of Time". I started the first one years ago and just couldn't get through it (I quit after like 6 chapters, I am shamed). But after Robert Jordan died, I told him "If I ever try again, it's going to be after the series is done. I'm not starting up this clearly very-involved series just to be left waiting for the end".

    But we both do try to give everything a fair shot, so I will definitely be mentioning this to him.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that the co-authored book that just came out is the actual ending of Wheel of Time.  I gave up on the first book for a couple of months, then went back to read it and discovered that I had stopped right before it started getting good (about six or seven chapters in).  I got through book ten (I think) and gave up.  I'm vaguely interested in reading the last books now that it's over, but there are so many dozens of major characters that I think I'd just be lost.  The first few books are really, really good, but it sort of collapses under its own weight.

    Aerin, they did have somebody new take it up (Brandon Sanderson), and Robert Jordan's wife is the editor for the project. And right before he died, he apparently made a tape of exactly how everything is supposed to end.

    There was a new book that just came out a month or 2 ago. But unfortunately, it's not the end ... there's still going to be at least 2 more books.

    Oh, trust me, I'm up on the WOT 411, lol, it's like a law in my house.

    It's not even over?  Screw that, then.  I'll read a synopsis on Wikipedia if the dust ever settles.  (That's how I managed to get conversant in Twilight without wanting to spork my eyes out.)

    What book have you read most recently? 
    The Devil in the White City, by Erik Larson

    Was it good? 
    Yes, albeit a slow read for me.  I have no idea why; I'm usually a fast reader.

    What is your favorite book? 
    Kidnapped, by Robert Louis Stevenson

    What book was really hard to read?
    Robinson Crusoe.  It was my mom's favorite as a kid, so I've tried to get through it several times and have never been able to.  I couldn't stand the 57 variations on how he built his cabin and got fed up.
