    I don't know about you, but I'm a voracious reader. I'm currently addicted to JD Robb's "In Death" series.There are 35+ books in the series and I'm nearly done. They're really fun futurist, detective books - if you're into that sort of thing.

    But I'm going on vacation at the end of August, and need ideas. I love fiction, non-fiction, biographies. So what are you reading?

    I just finished reading this funny and informative book titled " Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers & Other Useless or Gross Information about your Body" by Francesca Gould.

    Now I'm starting "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Jane Austen and Seth Smith. Lizzie fighting zombies is great entertainment.

    Now that sounds like a classical romance I can get on board with...

    The Picture of Dorian Gray.

    Never read it before, and I needed some new reading material, so I picked it up. So far so good.

    I just finished reading James Frey's "Bright Shiny Morning." It's the best book I've read in at least 5 years.

    I've also been reading the graphic novel series "Y: The Last Man." I just finished volume 6.

    The World Without Us....by Alan Weisman.

    This book answers the question of what happens to planet earth after humans disappear, very interesting mix of ecology/science-fiction
