About meI'm an avid reader.I'm always reading. Love classics. Love history. Love fiction. Don't like romance novel genre.

About my libraryThis is a straitforward list of all books read and latest additions are books that I'm currently reading. I'm positive there are unintentional omissions.

Back in June I was to receive Fade to Black by Jeffrey Wilson. To date I have not received.
Hey Lynn,
When you have time, star all your books so I'll know the ones you did and didn't like. Thanks!
Finished the invisible bridge. Very moving, I'm glad I read it.thanks for that recommend.
I'll get Rabbit is Rich on CD as you suggested. Don't forget Cutting for Stone and The Cat's Table- both good and books I think you will enjoy.
How did you like John updike?
Thank you for the recommendations! I appreciate that. I almost read Room once before so I'll prob read it. I recently read Waiting for Godot, and if you haven't read it, definitely put it in the queue. It's a must- so much fun and a classic! As soon as I was finished I wanted to start it over!
I'm reading Aunt Julia and the Scripteriter! It's wonderful!! By Mario Vargas Llosa who recently won the Nobel prize; it's fun, funny, very well written and interesting, and just a blast. You have to read this book!!!
Hi Lynn,
I'm so glad you answer my comments. Do you ever check this thing?? Still love you!!
Okay, now I'm reading the books on Elaine Newton's list and I'm looking for the older lists, if they exist. Is there a reading list for 2009, 2008 etc.? I was searching on Google but didn't come up with any lists but 2010.
Does Dr. Elaine Newton know what a fan she has in you? Still haven't seriously tackled that list but I'm about to start a new read. Maybe today is the day...
Congratulations on winning a copy of Freya's Child by Alvin Franzmeier - your copy will be in the mail shortly!

Warm regards,

So glad you liked Edgar Sawtelle:-)
BTW, since I know you liked Under the Banner of Heaven as much as I did, you will probably like The Nineteenth Wife by David Ebershoff, a great read about life as an FLDS, both at the time of Smith and Young, and present day. I'm about half way through and loving it.
Great. E-mail me your e-mail address (my address is, and I'll e-mail you the e-book version of the book.


"...the sense of being which in calm hours arises, we know not how, in the
soul, is not diverse from things, from space, from light, from time, from
man, but one with them and proceeds obviously from the same source.... Here
is the fountain of action and of thought.... We lie in the lap of immense

Hi there,

I was looking at some of your past reviews and books on your shelf and I thought you would be interested to know that there’s a new book by Vikas Swarup the author of Slumdog Millionaire called Six Suspects out today. In fact Minotaur Books is giving away free signed copies!

They even have a Q&A with Vikas Swarup---
and you can meet the “suspects” in the story. It has gotten great reviews and promises to be a thrilling summer read.

Are you interested in Children's Books.
Have you read The Fiscal Pear?

Hi, friend how is "Portnoy's Complaint"
Noticed you liked The Bluest Eye, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
