    So what are we all reading at the moment? I've actually gotten some great books from reading previous posts from you all on here

    Is everyone reading on a kindle or ipad yet? or are there still dead trees involved?

    I'm reading a kindle book called Murder A La Mode. It's not bad.

    One author that I have totally fallen for is J.A Konrath. He writes series with the main character who is a detective, her name is Jack Daniels. If you like a good mystery/thriller with a lot of laugh out loud humor, then these books are for you. There are 7 or so of them. They are absolutely hilarious.

    The other author who writes similar books is Jeff Strand. He writes his series about a guy named Andrew Mayhem. A normal joe who ends up in some weird situations. Again, hilarious mystery/thrillers.

    I can't recommend these books enough!

    A turned a co-worker onto the Jack Daniels series and she loves them!

    I mentioned the Jack Daniels series to my DW also and she's become a huge fan of them. She's got them on her iPad also.

    I'm reading Tom Clancy's new book (Against All Enemies) on my iPad along with numerous technical books.

    I am reading Skin Tight by Carl Hiaasen. This is the 3rd novel of his I have read. They are good mysteries with some humor mixed in.

    I still read from an actual book.

    Does she know about the Jeff Strand series about Andrew Mayhem? If not, these are similar. Fantastic books.

    I never seem to have the time to do much book reading, although I always manage to read at least one book when I`m on vacation.
    These have mainly been autobiographies, the latest being "Life" by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. Having read it I`m surprised that the title was not "Death".

    I'm reading Creating Magic, and Management of Organizational Behavior. I'm old fashioned, I like books. :D

    I have however been known to download books to my phone and read them that way when I'm traveling. Not a bad thing at all and a whole lot lighter than carrying hardcovers.

    I am always reading! I am completely infatuated with books. The way they smell, the way they feel, etc.

    Currently I am reading Room by Emma Donoghue. Just started it this afternoon.

    I just finished My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. I swear this is my Twilight! It is book 1 in a trilogy. I cannot wait for the others to come out.

    The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was a fantastic book.
