    Just wondering if any of you guys are currently reading any novels you might recommend? I'm currently reading "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. Can't put it down so I'm all most finish. Anything you're reading right now that I might be interested in reading?

    1) Pillars of the Earth - Loved it.
    2) Whiteout
    3) Hammer of Eden
    4) World without End (Sequel to Pillars of the Earth)

    I read that Stephen King's Under The Dome is worth reading!

    The Frankenstein series by Dean Koontz is fun. Also the Strain by Guliermo Del Toro is very good. They are making it into a movie.

    I just finished Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It was amazing! Also, Wicked if you haven't read it yet.

    Water for Elephants is very good for such a short book (just finished reading it).

    Fish: A Memoir of a Boy in a Man's Prison, is a very very good book.

    Cold Sassy Tree, another great book.

    Shantaram: A Novel, LOOOOONG Book, but worth the read (This is one of those books you read while flying to London, lol)


    Right now I am rereading Wicked. After seeing the musical it peaked my interest again.

    (Love my Kindle icon_smile.gif )

    Wow these are some very good suggestions! Thanks for the input. I've heard about "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and "Under the Dome". I've seen "Wicked" the musical and it was amazing!

    The Royals by Kitty Kelley-- very well written even if some of the arguments may be questionable. I treat it as half fiction and half non-fiction.

    Just read Jonathan Howard's "Johannes Cabal, the Necromancer." A wickedly clever book about a man who had once sold his soul to the devil, but now wants to make a deal to get it back. Satan, being bored, agrees to a wager whereby Johannes has one year to win 100 souls in return for his own. To help him along, Satan sets him up with a diabolical little traveling circus... Very funny and incredibly smartly written.

    Also just finished "Far North" by Marcel Theroux. It takes place about a generation after the world's social systems have essentially collapsed, and the protagonist lives (like everyone else) on survival skills alone. One day, an airplane (keep in mind that no airplanes have flown for years) arcs across the sky and crashes into a forest, prompting the main character on a mission to discover how much of the old world might still be out there.
