Was referred to Mary Karr's memoir "The Liars' Club." (Wow!) Just finished today and am starting on her second, "Cherry."
Before these, I just reread Louise Erdrich's "The Bingo Palace." She is so unbelievably amazing. Last week finished her "Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse." "Love Medicine" is my favorite.
its a book in a series, although I dont read them in specific order, My friend gives them to me in a order he wants me to read them .. its kind of wierd but he always picks out good books for me, he seems to have more time to look for good books.
Song of Susannah is absolutely WONDERFUL. I re-read Desperation yesterday and today to re-familiarize myself with some of the symbols in SOS.
Given the mixed reviews for Da Vinci code, I think that I will pass. I want a book that I can immerse myself into, without noticing that time is passing. Doesn't sound like that's the book I want to read next.

the end of the affair - graham greene
the sixth hp book (cause honestly i've only read it once and in twenty -four hours, so i'm reading for detail now)
homicide: life on the killing streets - david simon
daniel deronda - george eliot
I recently finished Angels & Demons. Very good, quite a page turner. Now I'm reading The Bourne Supremacy before I can see the movie. Very different from the movie. It was written in the height of the cold war, but the movies are based on the character and are written to fit into the current decade.
I'm also relistening to The Great Hunt, book 2 in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, since it takes like a decade for this guy to write a book. So far he's up to 10 books and looks like at least another 2 to go, plus the 3 prequels he is going to write Good fantasy series.
We listen to books on tape in the car, especially during hockey season, since we live in Ventura. Good way to spend long drives
