    True Grit by Charles Portis

    At first I was totally enchanted by the narrator-s voice, but now it's a little boring :cheese

    Also, Magician King by Lev Grossman, and for now nothing much is happening, but it's pretty well written, just like the previous one :look

    A discovery of Witches. Rather interesting so far!

    I'm reading the Alchemyst by Richard Scott. My brother leant it to me a year ago. :lol I read a bit of it, then I got distracted by other books. I'm almost done with it, and so far, it's great! I love the mythology used in it. And the world-building is pretty neat, too.

    My book club is reading When God was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman. Lots of good things said about it on the back - it even won an award I think - but I'm not keen on it at all and I'm already halfway through :\

    "Real Marriage" by Mark and Grace Driscoll. It's a self-help type book that my sister got me after I got engaged. So far it's got a few good tips and ideas, but a lot of it is very ... churchy.

    I finished True Grit, which suffers from boring middles :look but otherwise I quite enjoyed it :D Very memorable main character.

    Started The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker, which reads like YA and is pretty well written I suppose, but I have yet to see what the whole fuss is actually about :look :p

    Oh you know it. Don't forget the extended s at the end.

    Still on book 5 of the Malazan series...

    about 1/2 way through book 3 (or 6 depending on how you look at it :p) of Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan

    great read - highly recommend it.

    Loira Sedai, were those written by the same people that made Lifetime, or the Hallmark channel?

    As for me, just started reading The Hobbit. Figured I should have some background before going into the movie.

    I just finished re reading The Hobbit.

    Now I have begun reading a dearly loved book from my young days, The Lost Queen of Egypt. My beloved daughter got me a copy for Christmas.
