    What are you currently reading?

    Maybe it's fun to let everyone know which book you're reading at the moment.
    I know I'd like to know!



    Still don't know what to make of this quadrilogy. I think I like it.

    I finished all of the stories in FD,NS, and now I am reading Vacations from Hell, a book of horror short stories written for and about teen girls. It's my wife's book, but I figured I'd broaden my horizons.

    So are they any good? Or is a teen girl's version of a vacation in hell one where she forgets to pack her eye liner and has no cute boys to talk to all summer?

    Vacations from Hell is OK, IMO. They put out quite a few books "from Hell" books. I liked Prom Nights from Hell better, which is what made me want to try Vacations from Hell, when I saw it in Half Price Books for $1. .....I'm jmcraven's wife, btw. :-)

    Reading:

    Jeremy Dyson's Never Trust a Rabbit (Dyson is one of the team who write the BBC's The League of Gentlemen)

    This is offset by Terry Lynch's Jack Ripper The Whitechapel Murderer. Try and mix fiction and nonfiction as much as posssible.

    Finished Vacations from Hell, then picked up How I Write, by Janet Evanovich at her book signing the other night and read it. Finished it today. If I read another book right now, it will probably be one from her Plum series, as I want to study a different style, something outside the horror genre.

    For you guys that have read King's On Writing to help with your own writing skills, I highly, highly recommend you read Evanovich's How I Write. You may not want to write adventure/romance, but I think you will appreciate what she has to say.

    So, I went ahead and cracked Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich. Not very far in yet, but it's a fun read so far.

    I'm almost halfway through JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN By Dalton Trumbo. I'm semi computer illiterate so no pic, sorry. Not sure what to think of the story so far.

    cdfan, that's quite a good book. I read it in high school, and it really affected me, making a staunch conservative very anti-war for quite a long time. In fact I think that book was a factor in why I didn't accept the Navy's offer to come to the Naval Academy when I graduated high school.

    Thanks for sharing that, it really did turn out to be a very good book. The book as a whole was different from what what I expected and the last half really pulled me in.

    Next: The Best of Joe R. Lansdale

    I'm halfway through The Five, so I guess you'd say I'm reading "2 1/2 left"
