            Jane Eyre (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) 


            I caught "Jane Eyre" on BBC the other night, so now I am reading the free BN Classic Nook book.


            I also just finished the following Julie Garwood books, which I highly recommend to all lovers of romance:

              Prodigal Father, Pagan Son  




              Book Description

              Publication Date: March 29, 2011

              By the time he was thirteen, he already had attended thirteen funerals.
                          Abandoned by his mother, and with his father, “Mangy” Menginie—president of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, Philadelphia chapter—in jail, Anthony “LT” Menginie is raised inside the Pagans and inducted into a life of sex, violence, drugs, and organized crime.
                          In Mangy’s absence, LT finds a father figure in the Saint, a club member who helps teach him the difference between the club members you respect…and those you fear. The author recounts the power struggles that occur when Mangy is released from jail and tries to resume his role as father and president. Soon all hell breaks loose when Mangy betrays the club by going over to the rival Hells Angels, helping to touch off the “Biker Wars” in Philadelphia. The chapter’s new president grooms LT to one day confront his father for his treachery. Faced with an impossible decision, LT has to decide where his loyalties lie.    Prodigal Father, Pagan Son is a voyeuristic glimpse into the shocking and hypnotic underworld of notorious “one-percenter” biker clubs, hit men, drug dealers, and the other individuals who operate under no other rules than the “club code.” But more than this, Menginie’s story is the gritty and powerful true tale of surviving amid personal trials and tragedies, and of one man’s determination to escape to a better life

                Cascadia's Fault  



                Book Description
                Publication Date: May 1, 2011
                There’s a crack in the earth’s crust that runs roughly 31 miles offshore, approximately 683 miles from northern California up through Vancouver Island off the coast of British Columbia. The Cascadia Subduction Zone has generated massive earthquakes over and over again throughout geologic time—at least 36 major events in the last 10,000 years. This fault generates a monster earthquake about every 500 years. And the monster is due to return at any time. It could happen 200 years from now, or it could be tonight.

                The Cascadia Subduction Zone is virtually identical to the offshore fault that wrecked Sumatra in 2004. It will generate the same earthquake we saw in Sumatra, at magnitude 9 or higher, sending crippling shockwaves across a far wider area than any California quake. Slamming into Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver, it will send tidal waves to the shores of Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, damaging the economies of the Pacific Rim countries and their trading partners for years to come.

                In light of recent massive quakes in Haiti, Chile, and Mexico, Cascadia’s Fault not only tells the story of this potentially devastating earthquake and the tsunamis it will spawn, it also warns us about the impending crisis almost unprecedented in modern history.

                  Right now I am reading The Dickens with Love and Charmed Life. I'm almost done with The Dickens with Love and think it is an all right novel, but I really love Charmed Life at the moment despite still being at the beginning.

                    The Teflon Queen  New FIction Release by Silk White

                      Just finished James Pattersons...Kill Me if You Can. Very good, I really enjoyed it BUT...I'm wondering if I actually read the whole book. It seemed to end quite abruptly. If anyone has read this book, could you please tell me what the last sentence of the book is? Thanks.

                      • 323. Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

                        I just finished Dresden Files 13.  Great book!  Now I just have to decide what to read next.

                          The New Testament.  Being an English major I will read no other version than the King James version.  Bashed my head against the Old Testament for years and years and finally decided to go around it and read the New Testament.  It's quite interesting reading.

                            The Sisters Brothers  


                            I just finished off The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt and really enjoyed it. It's a western but there's an absurd dark humor in the telling of a rough (and often nasty) adventure.


                            ALSO, I just noticed while I was grabbing the link that there are two NOOK editions - one of which is two dollars less than the other. Maybe it's a limited time sale, but I haven't seen that before without one being identified as a special edition of some sort. The more expensive one's product details lists eleven more pages and its file size is three times the other's. Now I'm curious because I didn't see anything I thought was 'extra.'  Anyway, click around if you don't see both directly from the link above.


                            Thankfully, I bought with a Christmas gift card and will reread at some point, so I don't feel too bad for paying the higher price.

                              The Trail to Budda's Mirror


                              From Publishers Weekly

                              What begins as a routine missing person's case becomes a complex web of deceit, danger and international intrigue in this superb mystery. On sabbatical from duties as an operative for a group known as Friends of the Family, Neal Carey, last seen in A Cool Breeze on the Underground , is visited in Yorkshire by his mentor and asked to find a brilliant, albeit lovesick scientist and convince him to get back to work. Robert Pendleton, a biochemist and fertilizer expert for AgriTech corporation, has gone missing from a conference in San Francisco where he reportedly became smitten with a beautiful Chinese woman. After locating Pendleton and meeting the stunning Li Lan--and nearly being killed by an unknown assailant when the pair flee from him--Carey soon realizes that more than mere fertilizer know-how is at stake. The trail qui c kly takes him all the way to China where life-and-death political issues, vivid local color and absorbing historical detail enhance the chase and reinforce suspense as the story reaches its surprising resolution.
