    "Flappers and Philosophers" by F.

    Scott Fitzgerald.I chose the book randomly, it's nothing profound or overly interesting, but still nice, distractive and classic. It's a collection of short stories. So far I've noticed Fitzgerald's obsession with number 19 - nearly every female character in the book is 19 years...

    currently reading Windhaven by George R R

    Martin. I keep hearing how great the game of thrones series is but I don't intend to start them until they're complete so I figured I'd check out some of his other work and get a feel for him as a writer. this book is good, but I wouldn't call it amazing by any measure. I still...

    Saint Augustine's Confessions.

    In adversity. I crave for prosperity, in prosperity I fear adversity. Where is the middle term inbetween where human life is not just a test? Wise words.

    Fifty Shades of Grey.

    ... I'm quite late in the fad but I've come to really obsess over the graphic, tantalizing nature of the writing. My husband rarely sees my "sex kitten" side, but since reading the book, I've surprised him in more ways than one. He is ecstatic about my newfound sense of sexual...

    Tom Sawyer Abroad & Tom Sawyer Detective,

    by Mark Twain. Classic early American yarns. hadn't read any Twain since I was a boy, maybe 55 years ago. These read like the kids' books they were intended to be and I have to say as an old grump now I didn't get much out of them. Perhaps a wry smile or two.
