      Emily Giffin series is great, highly recommend - although I still need to read Love the One You're With..

      I am reading Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella, it is awesome so far. I read her Confessions of a Shopaholic which I thought was ok.

      Just starting a Book Swap Club with my friends in DC. Rather than doing a traditional book club where we all read the same book, we are doing a swap. So we will get together for some wine and food, hang out and swap books that we have liked. That way we have a reason to all get together, and can swap out our fave books for some new ones.

      I have really gotten back into reading, especially since I live in DC and I have a 45 minute metro commute each way.. so I go through a book a week.

        I too am reading the Emily Giffin series...it's sooo good! Another really good series (if you like to laugh) is Janet Evanovich's series (1st book is one for the money) there's like 14, theyre really good though and will definately make you laugh out loud!

          I just read that and the follow-up: Something Blue. I also just started Baby Proof! Thus far i really like Emily Giffin....her books are very true and deal with life-like characters and feelings.

            I *LOVE* James Patterson and Mary Higgins Clark. I'm reading my first John Grisham book now, The Appeal. Oh and we can't forget the Harry Potter books, they are what managed to create my reading frenzie!

            What type of author is Emily Giffin? I really can't do sappy love stories, I love the suspense thriller books.

                Reading is like breathing to me...If I don't have a book to read, I feel like part of me is missing. I will read pretty much anything, but am partial to historical fiction and mystery/thriller/horror type books.

                Some of my faves (in no partcilar order):
                The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
                Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
                The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer (totally obsessed with these, don't get me started talking about them or I may not shut up)
                Swan Song by Robert McCammon
                The Stand by Stephen King
                Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
                Emma by Jane Austen
                White Oleander by Janet Fitch
                The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
                The Host by Stephenie Meyer
                Watchers by Dean Koontz
                The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
                The Sweet Hereafter by Russell Banks
                Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
                Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
                Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy
                The Cider House Rules by James Irving


                ok...I think I'll stop there....but just so you can see, here's a picture of my personal library, I like to own the books I read

                  Do you remember the girl who played Liesl from The Sound of Music? She wrote an autobio a few years back that is pretty good, called Forever Liesl (author Charmian Carr)

                  Then there's the figure skater Ekaterina Gordeeva who wrote her autobio, My Sergei, chronicling her career with her partner and husband, Sergei Grinkov.

                  And just because his story was really fun to read, Slash (from Guns n Roses) wrote an autobio a couple years ago too.

                    I also love reading. My taste in books is all over the place!
                    Enjoyed the Twilight series, the Shopaholic books, the Emily Griffin books.
                    I like the Jodi Picoult books, but some of them more than others.
                    Steven Berry, Stephen King, Clive Cussler, I could go on and on
                    However, I LOVE the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I'm currently reading it again for about the 5th time! Need to refresh the memory before the last book comes out in September
