Thought that was a cool book.  Required reading for us in the 8th grade.  One of two books(schoool assigned) I have any memory of. That and Silas Marner.  :-[
Comics!

I just finished The Best of Bova vol.1, a collection of short stories by Ben Bova.  It wasn't too bad.

I'm also rereading The Short Victorious War by David Weber.

The Outsiders is one of my all-time favorite books! I just realized that is the only book I have read by S.E. Hinton. So I placed a hold on the library for another book of hers called That Was Then, This Is Now. I hope it's good.....I haven't heard of Silas Marner before. Is it a good book?

60sBettyandReggie

Started reading That Was Then, This Is Now by S.E. Hinton.

60sBettyandReggie

Finished reading Rumble Fish (also by S.E. Hinton). Did not like it. Main character was unlikable, I didn't care for him or his troubles at all. Hinton's best book is definitely The Outsiders. That Was Then... is also a good one.

I'm gonna start reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

I'm re-reading the Mediator series by Meg Cabot. I've actually met her, she was really nice.

LOVE this series. I've re-read it too. Never got to meet her though.

I finished reading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas last night.  I've been reading it for the past month and it is one loooong book.   I think the printed version is 1200 or so pages.  I listened to the audiobook which was on 35 cds.  Edmond Dantes is a young sailor who is about to get married when he is set up by a couple of jealous rivals.  He is sent away to prison where he languishes for years before escaping.  He attains fabulous wealth thanks to a hidden treasure he learned of from a fellow prisoner and eventually reemerges into society a decade later as the Count of Monte Cristo, a mysterious person who is extremely talented in many areas.  He sets his plans for revenge into motion and things slowly come together.  It is an excellent book and well worth the time needed to read it.

DeCarlo Rules

I always wondered where Dumas came up with the title character's name, Edmond Dantes. Primarily because it's a tale of revenge, and of course Dante Alighieri was forced to navigate the circles of the Inferno to escape, while "Edmond" is a near-anagram for "demon".

Lots of different things lately. Mostly non-fiction:


Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish by John Hargrove


The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Immigrant stories are probably my favorite genre)


Show Dog: The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred by Josh Dean (about an Australian shepherd. I wish this was my job)


Feminist Fight Club: An Office Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace by Jessica Bennett


Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham (the mother on Gilmore Girls. Not as funny as I'd hoped)


Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson (memoir of the little girl from Mrs. Doubtfire, Matilda)

I've heard she writes. Are her books usually funny?

I think I was assuming she'd be like her character Lorelei Gilmore. She was funny in parts, but in kind of a try hard way. I think she's only written 2 books: her memoir and a fiction book about being a young actor trying to make it.
