Trick or Treating Thru J-Land

Happy Halloween J-Land! 

I have seen this on a few journals recently, and the idea is for everyone to do an entry with the same title - as a little J-land unity Trick or Treating!

My last entry about the books on my nightstands has been really fun because everyone has been asking great questions!

Some of the books I have read already.  All the RA related books I have finished and use for quick reference to reread when needed.  I have also read all the Latin books and reread them time and again.  The 'Egregious' book is a book of words not often used in the English language.  I like to reread that one skipping around for fun as it is in alphabetical order.

'The Book of Peace' by Ben Stein is a great treasure that I read front to back when I first bought it.  It is filled with about 500 affirmations, and I reread random pages every morning or evening.  The Harry Potter book has been read twice already, and I will read it again.  I read 'The Mephisto Club' by Tess Gerritsen and it was fabulous, worthy of its best seller status right now.  I have read the 'Vampires...' book as I have all of Katie MacAllister's books.  They are fun, light, romantic reads but filled with adventure, I recommend them, often. 

I haven't started the Brad Meltzer 'Book of Fate' yet, but I probably will soon.  I am about 3/4 of the way through 'Longitude' by Dava Sobel, but I have not started her other book on my nightstand, 'The Planets' yet.  I also have read about half of the 'Philosophy' book.

I think that covers it!  And, I have about a dozen or so more books on the nightstand.  Most have been read and need to get moved out of the way for some new ones soon!

be well,
Dawn

ps... I have said many times on this journal how much I like to read.... scary huh?  lol

Dawn,
I am jealous. I no longer can follow a book.  I used to love to read.  Maybe I should get books on tape (or would it be on CD?).
Hugs, Lu
