Hey Y'all :)
I'm a newbie to this entire forum *waving* and reading is one of my favorite things to do--I am never, ever, never, ever without something to read!
I just finished a re-read of 'Nights of Rain and Stars' by Maeve Binchy. Twas my 'in honor of' reading after Maeve passed away this past July (I think it was). She was such a wonderful storyteller, I've enjoyed every book of hers.
I'm hoping to get to the library in the next few days--before my fines reach 'build a new wing' status!!
So, tell me, what're you reading lately?
Finished reading Finding Fish last night. I couldn't put it down. I finished it at 3.30 pm. Too sad.

Rereading Game of Thrones series again. It is a joy to read George R. R. Martin's words, characters, trickery, mystery, sex, intrigue and the human experience. I am amazed how well he portrays women and personalities.
My best reads lately are The Sparrow, Wolf Hall, and Love Walked In.
This thread has sent me off to the library website for some Inter Library Loaning!

Reviving this thread. :-)
I'm reading quite a lot of non-fiction lately, like gardening and cleaning books, but I'm also reading a historical one - The Heir Apparent, which is about the life of Edward VII. Pretty interesting read!
Apartment Farm - the chronicles of my cooking, gardening, crafting and other such things.
My son is a second grader and he loves to read. He gets so upset whenever he gets sick. You read it correctly. He gets upset! and I have a hard time telling him what really happens in his body when he gets sick and what needs to be done. I couldn't explain it to him. Then I found this book in Amazon named "The Adventures of Aiden and Little Leuk" and I thought lets give it a shot and see if this could give him enough info since the writer was a physician. I just received it and it was all it promised to be.
My son just read it and he loves it. The fun part is the book is talking about a boy named Aiden and my son's name is Aiden! That even made it more interesting for him.
I did try to find more books from this series and this author cause it seems it is a series, but I think they are not out yet. I think the approach of this author is amazing and it brings positive attitude for the kids and their parents in a stressful situation. It helps kids to be more co-operative when they get sick and it makes it fun to learn about diseases and their body.
I'm reading Humble By Nature, by Kate Humble. An inspiring book about farming, Kate Humble is obviously dedicated to the animals and their welfare, but has a realistic attitude to keeping farm animals.
