    The stories are fun, but I think Dan Brown's writing style sucks... particularly in A&D. Either it improved by DVC, or I got used to it enough not to notice.

    I'm reading this:

    I wish someone would post medium sized book cover pics. They are either gigantic, or too small to figure out what it is.

    I'm in a John Grisham phase....again....

    I just finished reading "Skipping Christmas". Short read, pretty predictable storyline. I don't know if I'll spend the money to watch the movie, even though it was the preview that propelled me to read the book.

    Now I'm reading
    "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world." ~C.S. Lewis

    Perhaps it's just a matter of taste, but it takes a bit for an author to really hook me and get me to find time to read his story or to stay up til 2/3am because that's the only time I can find to keep reading. I've done that with the three Dan Brown books I've read, and we'll see if that continues when I get Digital Fortress. I read Da Vinci Code first and it took me a little while to get into it, so maybe his style does take some getting used to. As soon as I started reading Angels & Demons, I couldn't put it down.

    I don't think I've read a single John Grisham book. Have a particular favorite, Licerony?

    Just started "The Da Vinci Code". It grabbed me right from the start. Mystery, intrigue, interesting characters, descriptive environments and I'm only on page 30.

    I finished Tortilla Curtain by TC Boyle. The story is basically the lives of two couples and how the two worlds perceive each other. One couple is upper-class white, the other Mexican illegal immigrants. Yes, stereotypes galore with the white couple's big problem in life is seemingly the devaluation of their property due to a day labor meeting area near their neighborhood. The lives of the Mexican couple could have been a part of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events. Everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. It was quite an annoying read.

    Anyway, on to better... I got to read Digital Fortress by Dan Brown this weekend. Once again, he gets my attention with his story and has me reading practically non-stop. It's about as good as Deception Point. Something entertaining to read, but doesn't have that thought-provoking element in Da Vinci Code. I've read and enjoyed all four of his books, and now I must wait until his next book comes out.. assuming he's working on one.

    I don't know what is next on my reading list. Perhaps it's time to browse through this thread again and try one of the books you guys have read recently.

    He is. It will be set in DC, about the founding fathers and the freemasons.
