Treasure of Khan, by Clive Cussler. It's adventure and very good
reading.

Aliens - Original Sin, by Michael Jan Friedman. It's in paperback, and
based on the popular movies. I didn't expect much, but it's an excellent
read for fans of Ripley. Like me. :)

The Great Gastby--Fitzgerald.

I can't believe I'd never read it before, knowing what a quick and great read it is.

I'm reading White Teeth by Zadie Smith. It takes a couple hundred pages to get into it, so be patient if you try it.

The Day After Tomorrow by Allan Folsom
best book I've ever read.
Nothing to do with the movie.

Also started Long Spoon Lane by Anne Perry as a diversion from The Vesuvius Club which I have to take in bite-sized pieces so far - it might blast off.

Update on White Teeth...

Can't read it. I am hundreds of pages into it and I STILL don't care about any of the characters. They still feel like "characters" to me instead of real people.

God, I wish Lois McMaster Bujold would write another Miles book.

I just finished reading the ruins of ambrai, book one of the cheysuli series, and I am right now reading Faith of the fallen and for a book report some book about Elizabeth Blackwell...they are all good books, even the biography... but i wouldnt suggest reading that for fun...unless you like those types of books...

I just finished Angels and Demons by Dan Brown...and I Must say, wow...that sucked. I mean, it really was quite bad.
I'm currently about halfway through Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Don't give up on Dan Brown if you didn't like Angels and Demons. it is NOT one of his better works.

The Blind Assassin
by Margaret Atwood

However, still working on The Vesuvius Club - Clever but not a fast book for me. Some of the ones that I like best went slowly - Like Hogfather - I had to think not just read. Eesh
