    Question

    Anyone else read any good books lately?

    I am reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
    I have read the kite runner also by this author, very emotional, and well written

    I just finished Wicked, and I loved it! Actually, it was the best book I've ever read! I'm about to start another by the same author, Gregory Maguire, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. After that I have the sequel to Wicked, Son of a Witch tucked away.
    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

    You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

    Just finished Watership Down by Richard Adams. Better than I expected.

    Currently reading:
    Fabric of the Cosmos - Brian Greene
    Mythology - Edith Hamilton
    The Great Fire - Shirley Hazzard

    Reality is that which must be endured by those with no imagination.

    I loved Wicked, but I had a hard time muddling through Son of a Witch. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is better.

    I am currently reading The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory (about Mary, Queen of Scots).

    Oh, wow! Watership Down. I read that as a teen. I remember that it was pretty good. I think I'll find it on Amazon and read it again.

    It was much more of an adventure story than I imagined a book about rabbits would be.

    Another book I'd like to read again is Sacajawea. Huge book, but I read it as a teen and then later as an adult.

    I haven't read that one. Who is the author?
