What are you reading?

In between furious writing sessions and school work, I'm trying to do more personal reading. Usually, my books consist of textbooks and classics for my literature classes but I've tried to make time to read for fun. The question of the day: what are you reading now and do you like it?

Jessica, I am currently reading a novel by Thomas Kinkade (and a co-author I can't remember) called "A New Leaf." I really like it. If you don't know who Kinkade is, he is a painter. Until a couple of weeks I didn't even know he wrote. But so far I love his writing as much as I love his paintings.
You can see his paintings at: www.thomaskinkade.com I just think they are gorgeous. :)

I'll definitely check that out. I've seen his work before but like you, I had no idea he wrote. :) I'm reading Dickens' Pickwick Papers right now for a British Lit class. It's a good comedy and surprising easy to read.

I'm currently reading "The English Breakfast Murder" by Laura Childs. It's part of her tea shop mystery series. It's great because I've been so bogged down with technical reading lately. BLAH. The tea shop mysteries are quick, simple, and they're relatively uncomplicated. Sometimes you just need that. Oh, and add to that the fact that I'm tea-obsessed!

And Jess--I am not generally a huge fan of Dickens, but I remember reading that awhile back and it wasn't bad! Humorous, for sure.
