What are you reading?

Well, I went to a concert last night instead of finishing my book. Even though Craig Johnson's Spirit

of Steamboat is a small novella, I was out listening to Straight No Chaser. I'll be finishing it today.

Since I don't have a book to tell you about, are you reading one this weekend? Or are you just too busy? Tell us about the book you're reading or listening to. If you're just too busy, you're probably not reading blogs this weekend either.

We'd love to know what you're reading, or plan to read over the holidays!

I'm listening to Mo Hayder's THE TREATMENT on audio and it's great. Also reading the complete PERSEPOLIS for the first time and really enjoying it!

Just finished Leighton Gage's last book, THE WAYS OF EVIL MEN. I enjoyed it so much, as I have all of his books. I'm so sad that Mr. Gage won't be giving us any more Mario Silva tales. I'm about to start John Straley's new book, COLD STORAGE, ALASKA, and am looking forward to it. His characters and his prose are always interesting.

Since it was mentioned multiple times on #libfaves13, decided to finally read THE INTERESTINGS by Meg Wolitzer, and wow, it's good! I love "friends forever despite their ups and downs through the years" and this one is sophisticated and compelling. Happy Holidays, Lesa!

Straight No Chaser is an amazing group! Well worth an evening's enjoyment. Lucky you.

Hi Lesa -- I'm reading the two new asphalt warrior novels, Doctor Lovebeads and Home for the Holidays, as well as Mim Neal's memoir, Tree Lines. After those, it's Stephen King's Dr. Sleep. I'll get back to reading mysteries in the new year (although the asphalt warrior (taxi driver) stories are sort of mysteries.

Thanks for sharing everyone! I love to see what you're reading. Patricia, if you come back, what are the asphalt warrior stories?

I just finished "The Savvy Insomniac". Now I know that there physcial reasons for my insomnia I don't feel as bad as I did before I read the book. It is not my fault!

Also reading a cozy "Fiber and Brimstone. Set in New Orleans and a scrapboking theme it is pretty good.

I just finished Kabul Beauty School by Deborah Rodriguez. It is fascinating, disturbing and heart-warming all rolled into one book. I am re-reading Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher for nostalgic reasons. Next up is One Amazing Thing by Chitra Divakaruni.

Am starting Jim Butcher's Cold Days. Just finished The Lost Husband by Katherine Center. She is a good writer in that syntax and organization flow well and the characters are believable. The story line was not riveting. I may read another of Ms Center's book and maybe not.

Snow in April is my favorite Rosamund Pilcher novel. The atmosphere and story and setting are so believable. I like the younger brother in the story; it added to the heroine's character. I loved it and have read it several times.

I just finished The Final Cut by Catherine Coulter and J.R. Ellison and I loved it!

I'm reading "North Sea Requiem," by A.D. Ross. Set in the Scottish Highlands in the 1950's, this series features characters so real, flawed and appealing, that I wish I worked alongside them at the "Highland Gazette."

I'm reading "Glad Tidings" by Debbie Macomber. I love reading Christmas books, especially this time of year!
