recommend something

I find myself not looking towards another semester of college, and it is starting to feel weird.  This is the first time in almost five years that I’m not fighting to get into the classes I want, wondering what my schedule will look like, and wanting to read books for fun instead of for homework.

Instead I am relaxing.  I have time to finally get insurance on my house.  I have time to read for fun.  So much time, in fact, that I downloaded tons of samples for books from my favorite authors, and I hope to find something good enough to justify splurging the $7.99 to purchase the whole novel for my iPad.

We also procured a book about dog training, which I intend to read diligently and put to good use.  Isabelle is still a little shaky around people and I’m hoping to get some new insight into how I can overcome this barrier.  It’s hard to take her anywhere because she freaks out at pretty much anything that moves.

So here’s where I’m at.  All dogs aside, I would like some suggestions for good books.  I want to move out of my usual funk and explore something new.  I am open to pretty much anything!  So tell me what your favorite book is and I shall read it.

Because now I have time for anything.

    I have heard the new Stephen King book is good, and am trying to read the Hunger Games trilogy before the movie comes out. I am cheap though — I go to the library.

  2. I just started the Prague Cemetery by Umberto Eco. It’s proving to be quite interesting thus far.

      Fantastic. I will look into that here soon and let you know how it went for me. I am always interested in new things, especially when they are books recommended by real people who are reading them!

      Thanks!
