The "Last Book You Finished" thread

Just finished To Kill a Mockingbird (for the second time) and Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes. Starting Sushi for Beginners and I have just ordered the Sookie Stackhouse diaries 9 of those books to get through!

Also on my to read list:

About 3 chapters in with Russell Brand's autobiography.
Assassin's Apprentice - Robin Hobb
We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver
The Story of Cirrus Flux - Matthew Skelton
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Boy with the Dress - David Walliams
And reread Interview with the Vampire, the Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned.

That's a lot of books to read!

Lost Highways, Dean Koontz. I don't know why but his books capture me despite the fact that they are so descriptively violent and often weird. I have several new ones waiting

I'm currently reading the new Phillipa Gregory and Cults of the Roman Empire (non fiction, quite a few authors to it), but I'm also re-reading the Lord of the Ring's series and just finished Michael Crichton's Andromeda Strain/The Terminal Man (2 for one book! ) I read... A LOT! So I always have a book or two going, usually one fiction one non-fiction, for when I get bored with the historical non-fiction and want a break that involves no thinking!

Just finished reading Olive Kitteridge. It was well written and won the Pulitzer Prize.

I just finished the book 'why does my parrot' (I don't know the authors name)

It's a good book, dealing with common behaviour issues in parrots.

Though I'd bring back this thread! I don't know if this is offensive to anybody at all, but the last book I've read was: Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. It's a real interesting and touching book. It's about a little 4 year old boy who has an emergency appendectomy and apparently goes to heaven. He tells details matching with the bible. He also tells his parents what they were doing while he was being operated on. I started it yesturday, finished it today!

I read a book or two a week. Been loving my Nook Color. I read everything by Stuart Woods, J. D. Robb, Lee Child, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Linwood Barclay, to name a few.

Recent books I enjoyed and recommend.
Alex and Me - Irene Pepperberg -Life with an African Gray
Still Alive - Lisa Geneva - The rapid decline of a person living with early onset Alzheimer's disease. Very close to home for me.

I have been reading my way through George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire lately. Next on my list is
by Qanta Ahmed; it's a memoir of a British born doctor, of Pakistani descent, who lost her visa to remain in the U.S. and moves to Saudi Arabia, pre-9/11, and practices medicine and her issues adjusting to the culture shock and trying to help her patients while retaining her identity and aiding the women around her. Promises to be a very good read Yes, I read all kinds of random things lol. After this I'll probably be reading some Homer or Ovid I got for free on Kindle. I love Classic literature (Classic meaning Greco-Roman) and I read a lot of historical non-fiction too. My "junk" reading is mostly fantasy/sci-fi
