A Good Read??

Anyone read a good book lately?

I need some good ones for the summer. The last two I read were big disappointments. The last great book I read was "The Secret Life of Bees" which was a while ago. I'm open to suggestions. I tend to like something with a bit of mystery, good plot, not too sappy, not too gorey, and no super sad endings.

This quote is sooo me!

"I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book." ~Groucho Marx

The Red Tent
Memoirs of a Geisha
Angels and Demons (by Dan Brown - much better than DaVinci Code)

I'm looking for good suggestions too. Although - most of my reading these days is on a specific topic :)

Thanks Toe!
When your little "peanut" is a bit bigger, I'll have a good book suggestion for you too, if you want it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I knew you'd come through! :)

Did you know that the author of "The Secret Life of Bees" has a new one out? I forgot what it was called, though. I saw it at the store a few weeks ago and was intrigued. Braeden is reading "Eragon" and I think I will read it next. I'm not getting much reading done lately,though! xo

A Confederacy of Dunces. No one I have recommended this book to has ever bothered to read it. It's one of my very most favorites.
