  • i am almost done reading "One Ranger" an autobiography by Joaquin Jackson, who is a retired Texas Ranger. it is a great book. each chapter tells a different story, so its not like one llloonnggg story throughout the whole book. it basically is him telling a little about his life, and telling some of his most memorable cases he worked or people he encountered as a texas ranger. its pretty funny, but intriguing at the same time. i have really enjoyed the book. in fact, im getting off of CM to go read a few chapters....

  • I know it was either Dean Koontz or Jonathon Kellerman, but I cannot remember for sure which book it was. Shoot. I love to read and I do it so much, all the books nearly blend together.

    I just read the entire Twilight Saga ... AWESOME!!!

    I've only read the first book, but I have to agree! I can't wait until the movie is released!

    I just finished the first book in the Fablehaven series. It was excellent.

  • Shackles-Overcoming Domestic Abuse, by Malaika Cohen. This non-fiction novel is an inspiration, and lets me know I can manage this.. If you've suffered an abusive childhood or marraige(or in so many cases, both), it is a great inspiration, and is a very well-written and heartfelt book about carrying on in the face of serious adversity, so actually, anyone may be able to get something out of it.
    The last book I read to my daughter was Losing Eddie, by Deborah Joy Corey, which I also highly recommend. She is a 14 year-old struggling with severe depression, and she (and I) just loved it. The main character, a young girl, has the most tragic summer, but stands strong and survives to tell the tale(even if no-one will listen.) A great line from the book : "There's something wrong with all of us." (None of us are perfect.) I don't have to, but I still love to read to my child.

  • I just finished George Orwell's 1984. It was good, depressing, but good.
