What book are you reading now?

I have just finished reading 'Burned Alive' by Souad, it's the true story of a young girl from the West Bank, who survived an attempted 'honour killing' It was shocking but interesting.

I haven't read a good book for a long time. I keep starting them and then putting them to one side to get lost in the dust in my bedroom - or become covered in day old knickers!

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

I've only recently got back into reading Dol.....it took me a year to finish one book which I actually started three times!

My excuse is that when I would normally read I have been writing or decorating....but lately I have been able to find lots of time for both writing and reading and have read 5 books in two months......that's flipping good for me that is as I am a slow reader!

I've got to confess that since going on-line I'm reading books a whole less than I've ever done at any stage of my life.The last book I read was by Joan Lingard called 'aross the Barricades'

Synopsis
Kevin is Catholic. Sadie is Protestant. In Belfast they are supposed to be enemies - so what chance do they have when they fall in love?

The book was pitched very well at a young teenage audience and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.I sat down and whizzed through it in one session.My 13year old had to do some work on it and I was being a whole lot less than helpful in answering her questions so opted to read it for myself.It was well written,well paced and really did give a balanced view of The Troubles.As an adult,it was quite refreshing to read such a book and I'd recommend it to anyone.

I am planning to finally start reading the Da Vinci Code, whenever I find enough time to start it when all my necessary reading for classes slows down a bit..lol.

There was a hole thread on Da Vinci on the old board, didn't read it as thought would save it till finished the book - too late Sad

There are loads of websites dedicated to Dan Brown and his book, its a very interesting read. The dialog is a bit twee at times but its a very interesting topic. You will be dragging art books off the shelves.

Enjoy Smile

Just cleared 20 books from his side of the bed ... I got to bed with a book, hit the zeds within a paragraph and he takes it off me ... aaah sweet ... next night I grab a book and the same thing ... So obviously reading nothing gripping at the moment .. or having any Rumpeh Pumpeh!

The last one that kept me awake was Fifty-Minute Hour by Wendy Perriam ~ a comic/harrowing inter-weaving of the lives of people undergoing psychoanalysis

I eventually at long last finished Chocolat, which was really a lovely book and made me eat more chocolate than I usually do!! I would love to see the film, what more can a woman ask for the delectable Mr Depp and chocolate! Heart

I am going to start reading A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly - any read this one?

TRINITY JEWELLERY - DESIGNS THAT STAND OUT
