Prairie Legacy series by Janette Oke. I'm re-reading them since I re-read her Love Comes Softly series.

Working my way through a book of short stories by Margaret Atwood. They're good but also leave me with a weird feeling so I can only read one at a time. I also feel like I need to know more about literature to fully appreciate them.

Hope it's ok that I'm reviving this thread. I recently started working at my local library and have started reading much more - not as much as I did in high school (my prime reading years) but still a lot better than I have in a long time!

Anyway, currently reading This Star Won't Go Out, the biography of Esther Grace Earl. It's very engaging and easy to read, but so sad because I know how it has to end.

Working in a library can be dangerous if you want to keep your to-read list short.

I'm reading Lost in the Cosmos by Walker Percy. If you want an ironic self-help book that will explain why you're a hopeless case....

A volume of H.P. Lovecraft short stories.

They're sort of like the opposite of the Space Trilogy.

Gone with the Wind. Slowly, but surely I'm making some headway. I even read 2 chapters in one day! Now I know why the movie was 4 hours long...

Canticle for Leibowitz -- I'm half way through and I still don't really understand what's going on!
