    just finished The Millionaire Next Door by Drs. Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko. a very eye-opening book, very interesting.

    haven't figured out what my next book to start will be yet - i've got a stack of about 20 borrowed books in front of me that i need to choose from...

    required reading always seemed like such a chore - "hated it".

    i'm glad now that i can read whatever, whenever - much more enjoyable.

    I've been reading quite a bit about past lives and reincarnation. My current book I'm almost through with is "Same Soul, Many Bodies" by Brian Weiss. He's a psychiatrist that believes in reincarnation, and he believes that you can also progress into future lives through hypnosis. Weiss details several cases in the book where progression into future lives has helped his patients overcome addiction, illness, depression, etc.

    I don't know if I believe in this stuff, but the book is absolutely fascinating.

    Come Thirsty by Max Lucado.

    just started it last night - so far, much better than his previous book.

    I haven't had time to read much of anything other than Dr. Seuss for a few months now! My schedule has gotten a teeny bit less hectic lately though, so I bought a couple new books!

    Right now, I'm reading Tales From Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett.

    im reading

    I've been reading Stephen King and Peter Straub's "Black House" for about a week.

    Its a really good book in my eyes, and its pretty much about this serial killer abudting kids and murdering them in a smalltown in Western Wisconson.

    I would say more, but don't want to give out any story other than the plot on the back of the book.

    It's a good read (as is The Talisman by Stephen King).

    Pick it up, its worth it.

    Stephen King is by far the best writer...IMO.
