I read Tina Fey's book Bossypants.
If your a fan of hers your like the book. I really enjoyed it.

I read about half of Diane Farr's book Kissing Outside the Lines and got bored and don't think I'll pick it up again. Cute story about her and her husband, it goes on wayyy too long.

Next to start reading is by Mindy Kaling called Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Picked up Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man recently and am reading it at work during lunch. The stories are interesting, but they have not aged well, as they were written before space exploration really got underway. The Long Rain is especially dated, since it depicts Venus as perpetually rainy and covered in a single massive ocean with only one continent (which is about as opposite as it's possible to get from what it actually is).

I finally had some time to relax, so I read Neal Stephenson's REAMDE. It is good. It's more like Cryptonomicon than like Anathem (my favorite of his), but I still enjoyed it a lot.

XD I read like crazy for two weeks... Then my add caught up with me, and I've barely read since...I'm sure I'll get back to it some time.

I'll be aiming for 15 or so this time since I always fall short of 20. I've started on Taggarung by Brian Jacques. a novel of the Redwall series. A children's set of books, but lots of fun. Haven't read these since I was like 12.
They're my father in a way.

XD Read a lot of those books myself. Never got back to them after I started the Wheel of Time in sixth grade.

House of Comarré series by Kristen Painter is unexpectedly good for being vampires (and shapeshifters and fae and...). I bought the first three for my best friend, since it's the sort of thing she enjoys. I generally have no interest in vampire stories because I'm so tired of vampires in everything, but these ones are actually holding my attention. The first book is a bore if you're expecting a lot of plot, but the characters are intriguing enough to hold my attention. You can safely skip the first book in the series and not lose anything important, though, since there's brief recaps throughout the others.

If you want books with supernaturals, I'd recommend these.

Anyone read 50 Shades of Grey and the other two following it? I'm curious if they're as good as people keep going on about.
