    I love the beach (who doesn't?), anywhere that I can snorkel, The Donkey Sanctuary (much to the dismay of my daughter), the lighthouse.

    I recently finished "Universal Coverage." It was a very interesting glimpse into what our lives could become under a single-payer universal health care system. It is both captivating and horrifying. It was a great read for anyone who cares about government interference and where we are headed. If you are not a "news junkie" and you don't feel like reading all of the political jargon, but would like to know what the government has in mind with health care reform, give this book a read. It will give you a lot to think about.

    One of my New Years resolutions is to alternate fiction with the classics, so I have moved on to "Sense and Sensibility." It is very good, but not the kind of book to read with a glass of wine. The old English requires very focused attention.

    The other resolution is to become a swimsuit model, and so far it's not going so well. Pass the bon-bons.

    Agree this is a very good read. Also, MacKenzie Phillips bio was an eye-opener.

    i too just finished SOUTHERN NIGHTS on the ipod. i liked it.
    my ipod audiobooks that i listened to this past aruba trip were
    Lovely Bones, Southern Nights, Face the Fire and just began the new Dan Brown book LOST SYMBOL which i will save for another time or a long roadtrip.

    i am quite proud of myself for getting 3 books done.
    As i type i have Orchid Beach in my ears.

    I too like Danielle Steel for "beach reading" and especially like Nora Roberts and Stuart Woods

    Just read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas....very, very, VERY sad!!! You have to be a very strong person to read this, and that I am not. I cried like a baby! My boss gave it to me and wanted to talk about the book afterwards, so I had to finish it. Never has a book affected me so deeply!

    My 13 yo chose to read the book. Dh and I were stunned. She is not very "big" on history, so we did not not discourage her curiousity. All in all she was happy that she read it, but of course cried as you did.

    Read the latest Matthew Reilly book on the way back from Vegas. For being a year late, it was a disappointment. My wife just finished the latest Steve Berry book. If you like Da Vinci Code type books, they aren't a bad read. A bit more action and the premises behind them are generally interesting to me. I think my favorite was The Charlemagne Pursuit. I think it would make the best movie of the bunch.
