I'm currently reading "The Devil Wears Prada", I haven't seen the movie yet, but the book is hilarious! I am LOL, and my dh thinks I'm nuts.

Then I'm going to read Martha Stewarts "Homekeeping Handbook".

I'm working on a new book I picked up at a quilt show last week, "Amish in Wisconsin". Its about visits to the different settlements in Wisconsin. Yesterday I picked up "Daily Candy A to Z" looking forward to starting that one.

I'm reading Likely To Die by Linda Fairstein.
Next is Eldest the 2nd in a fantasy trilogy from Christopher Paolini. First book was Eragon and that was made into a movie that is being released on dvd this week I think. If you and your kids enjoyed Harry Potter, you'll probably enjoy these books about a 15 year old boy and his flying dragon. Magic and adventure await you. :)

I want to read those books so bad. Everyone keeps saying how great they are. Right now I'm reading The Valley of Horses by Jean Auel. I've read the series a zillion times, but I still love it. My parents visited me a week ago and brought a stack of Reader's Digests for me, so I'm also working my way through them.

~My DH just finished reading Eragon. It's the only book he's ever read since I've known him, so it must be pretty good! I'm reading "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed" by Alan Alda and "Simple Abundance". Next up are "Faith" by Lori Copeland and "The Out of Sync Child". So many books, so little time!~

I'm reading Ever Wonder Why? by Thomas Sowell, actually I'm on the last few pages. Tomorrow is library day so I don't know yet what I'll be reading next. :)

I've read Eragon and Eldest. They were o.k but I think it's very obvious that they were written by a teenage boy. JMO. My husband, who loves Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, etc and has read each book repeatedly, couldn't even finish Eragon, though he says he may try again sometime.

I just finished Wild Orchids by Jude Devereaux. Romance novels are definitely not my usual genre of reading but this one has a supernatural element in it that made it interesting. It was not a wonderful book but it was entertaining, it would make a great beach read.

I am starting Predator by Patricia Cornwell tomorrow when I have a day off from work.

My youngest dd loved these books.
Did you know the author was just 16 or 17 when he wrote Eragon?

Julie, Prada made me laugh out loud lots too!
