I couldn't put the book down when I started it. It really got me thinking about how much I didn't know about Jesus and how much of it was really true. However, many people who read it(including me) were disappointed with the ending.

I am partway through all of these....
The Harry Potter books (3rd right now)
Delusion of Satan...Frances Hill
Under the Black Flag (the Romance and Reality of Life Among Pirates)...David Cordingly
Just a Couple of Days...Tony Vigorito
Angels and Demons
I have a really hard time reading one book at a time.

I'm on the library waiting list for Angels and Demons, but do stick with the DaVinci Code. I had a hard time putting the book down and found it quite fascinating.
I took Selmar's suggestion from one of the Harry Potter threads and began reading The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman today. I also just finished reading Hidden Prey by John Sandford.

I am almost half way through the first book of TLOTR. It seems as if everyone but me read this in their teen years. I guess I read the Dune series instead.

I'm actually reading an old book right now that I bought a year or so ago and lost in the shuffle of too many other books to read. False Memory by Koontz. Impressive so far. Creepy, realistic and moving along nicely.

I'm reading Love's Blood by Clark Howard. I don't know if we have any true crime fans here but this is one of the best true crime books I've ever read & I've read quite a few.
