Read Any Good Books Lately?

I finished another book last night. I've been reading quite an eclectic array of books lately so I'm not sure what I should pick up next. A few weeks ago I went on Alibris.com and found the Jan Karon Mitford books that I needed to complete my series. A few of them I hadn't read yet so when they came in the mail I stayed up way to late finishing them up. Next I read all 5 novels and the story in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Then I picked up a book in our church library on the archeological excavations of Masada, Israel that were done back in the 50's. Last night I finished "The Moon Is Down" by John Steinbeck. I have to admit to not really liking John Steinbeck so I don't know why I picked this particular book up but this one I liked. Actually I think I'm two for two, I disliked "East of Eden" and "Grapes of Wrath" but I really liked "The Moon Is Down" and "Travels With Charley" so I'll probably continue to give him a chance until the dislikes outweigh the likes by a fair margin. I'm sure my book loving friends are curious as to my reviews of each book but as the water is now boiling for the noodles I'm making for dinner you will just have to wait; or come visit for tea and literary discussions. (Am I being too pushy with the tea invitations? Not a one has taken me up on the offer, okay one has but she doesn't even read my blog so it doesn't count.)

I love books but havent taken the time to read any (except the Bible) lately. I need to change that.

Thanks for having a shabby blog, I followed the link and found a few things that suit me.

Biggest recommendation right now: The Gurensey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Read It!!!!! And I so very much want to come for tea, but now that I'm done with Jury Duty, I'm sick! Soon and very soon.
