The Lighthouse

I am reading:

The Lighthouse by PD James

So far this year I have read:

The Broker by John Grisham
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
In The Name of Honor by Richard North Patterson
Timeline by Michael Crichton
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay (The Final Book of the Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins

Now that I have finished the Hunger Games trilogy I am ready to move on to other books. I must say of the three books I enjoyed the first one the most, "Catching Fire" was not too bad either but "Mockinjay" gave me the feeling that she was stretching the story and failed to make me want to finish it right away. I did notice something tho, Panem was going through some sort of a rebellion/war and killing, suffering, and hunger were an everyday thing for many and in no time during the three books religion is ever mentioned. Which kindda proves that a world with no religion will be a world in chaos.

So, while in California at the beginning of last month we were at the hospital and I had finished reading Timeline so I was left withot a book to read so we went to the gift store and noticed that they had a bunch of books there soft and hard covers ranging from $.50 to $2.00 wow, good books too. So some of the ones they had I had already read but Abby recommended and bought for me "The Lighthouse" by PD James. I never heard of this writer but I'm into page eight and it is picking up really nice. It's a mystery and apparently she has a series of books with the main character of this book Adam Dalgliesh.

Happy reading fellow readers!

What are you reading these days, are your kindles on fire? Me, I still read regular paper books were I actually can turn the page and fold the top as a marker when I put it down.

Reading is such a wonderful thing...I like REAL books, as I'm not a Kendall owner.

I just finished a wonderful book called The Path of His Passion by Bill Crowder, and it was specifically read for my devotion from Ash Wed. through Easter. It was great, and truly inspiring.

P. D. James is a famous British mystery story writer. I'm not sure if she is still alive. Her books are a little more slow and detailed than today's books, but they do make good reading. Sort of Agatha Christie style. I think I've read "The Lighthouse", but it is a long while since I have read any of hers. If you like it, she has a lot more that have been published.
