Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?

I am looking for a good site to look up book reccomendations, other than Amazon.com. With all of my extra time I have during the Summer I have remembered how much I love to read. Now my problem is figuring out what that should be.

Anyone have any advice for me?

What kind of stuff do you

What kind of stuff do you like to read, Jen? I really haven't discovered anything outside of Amazon online, but we could have a book club of sorts on the Pulse! (I feel really lame for calling it "the Pulse".) What I'm really enjoying right now is Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation.

I have been wanting to read

I have been wanting to read Ender's Shadow and the other Orson Scott Card book in that series. My friend just read the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. She said it was way good. I'm looking forward to HP6 coming out. My mom's reading the Tipping Point. But whatever you do- don't read 'Slouching Towards Gomorrah'. It's evil.

I'm reading Cardinal of the

I'm reading Cardinal of the Kremlin. Then it will be Clear and Present Danger, then The Sum of All Fears, then Debt of Honor, then Executive Orders, then Rainbow Six, then The Bear and the Dragon, then The Teeth of the Tiger.

Yeah, I'm a Clancy fan.

Just finished reading

I just finished reading the new Jack Weyland book "Kristen" and a book called "if no one speaks of remarkable things" the power was out at my local library yesterday so I just picked up the first book I thought I would enjoy. and it was really good, Also recently read the Davinci Code and thought it was an interesting read. If anyone has any good suggestions for me let me know.

The Hot Zone

I'm reading The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. All about the Ebola Virus.

books that i've read in the

books that i've read in the last little while are all listed here. i'd recommend all of them besides the rule of four. anything by chuck palahniuk is fantastic, as well as camus, beavoir, and well.. the rest.

My Book List

Recently Read-
"I'm not the new me"
"Memoirs of a Geisha"
"Intuitive Eating"
"Eragon"

In the middle of
"French Women Don't Get Fat"
and "Pinocchio" (this one only because I have to, its in Italian)

Next on my book list
"The Dew Breaker"
Whatever the book is that is after Eragon (coming out very soon)
"The Great Gatsby"
And also a few different Italian books (not in Italian, about Italy)
"Harry Potter 5"

I really like this little book clubish discussion we have going on. I say we continue it every once in awhile. I am intersted in looking up some of the books that everyone has listed, and when I have time will ask a few more questions.

One immediate question, has anyone read "The Red Tent" I am interested in it, but would like to know a little more about it first.

Yay book club!

Guys, I'm a huge fan of the idea of a book club.

I just finished two David Sedaris books, "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" and "Me Talk Pretty One Day." Hilarious. I was laughing out loud. Right now I'm reading "The Chosen" by Chaim Potok (it's pretty good, apparently I'm a little late jumping on the Hasidic Jew bandwagon), and then I'll finish "Mere Christianity" by our favorite Brother Lewis... but yeah, my mom has recommended a ton of books to me... I think we should have a forum for ideas, yo!

Also, I think that my sisters read "The Red Tent"... and... they liked it, possibly?

grrr

I guess I haven't been on Amazon for a while because when I was looking at one of your book references, I noticed the new "Search Inside" feature. I should have known I wouldn't be able to read the entire book then and there, but I did. When it took me to the index instead of letting me continue reading, I got frustrated!! Haha, I guess that is a great marketing strategy because it sure makes it more tempting to just click "Add to Shopping Cart" instead of checking it out at the library. Thanks for all the book references. Does anyone know of some good (& clean) mystery romance novels? I'm kind of in the mood to read one of those right now...

Shadow of the Giant is

Shadow of the Giant is fantastic. Plus, there's no way OSC could leave all of those threads dangling, which mean's another series!

I also love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of books. Its like Harry Potter, but only a thousand times better! (Really, I did the math) I would recommend Men at Arms as a great place to start.

Also re-reading the Hitchhiker's Guide books, and I like them just as much now as I did 10 years ago.

Anyone hear anything good about the new David O. McKay biography? I may pick that up next.
