I'm still pretty new to this network, but love being a part of it. What are you all reading?

I just finished "The Centurian's Wife" by Davis Bunn & Janettee Oke

I'd also like to recommend my own novella (if that's okay. It's getting good reviews and reactions. It's called "Rebekah Redeemed." You can learn more about it at: Rebekah Redeemed If I'm not supposed to do this - sorry.

I have many books beside the bed. The one I am reading steadily is "Never Give Up" by Joyce Meyer.

Just finished Embrace Me by Lisa Samson. Loved it and will read more of her books. She's going to be the main speaker at a writers' conference where I'm also teaching this weekend. Looking forward to meeting her. smile

Really liked the Shack. Right now I have several books going.

1. Twitter Power
2. Facebook Marketing
3. The Power of Decisions
4. West Nile Diary
5. Power of Intention

Okay, that's all I am going to list or you might think I'm a bit obsessive. Aghhh, heck... who cares.... I am obsessive and love it. grin

I just finished "Haunting Bombay" by Shilpa Agarwal and am now reading Steve Wiegand's "The Mental Floss History of the World"; "Assassin's Apprentice" by Robin Hobb; "The Experts' Guide to 100 Things Everyone Should Know How To Do" by Samantha Ettus; "The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging"; and "World Wide Rave" by David Meerman Scott. I always have at least one fiction book going with one or more non-fiction books and take turns reading a chapter here and there from each.

I just finished "My Jim" by Nancy Rawles. It's a narration by the fictional wife of the slave Jim from the novel "Huckleberry Finn" written by Mark Twain. It's a lot more realistic than the old story, and talks of heartbreak, racism; the conditions of slavery in the south, and yet, there's also some hope and positive energy, because the grand daughter is FREE.
Makes me want to go back and read Huckleberry Finn again, as an adult.

Madelaine I'll have to look up the book "My Jim". I love Twain's Huck Finn. I re-read it again not to long ago and I think it still stands up. You can definitely see the times so it would be interesting to see the story from her point of view. So very glad you posted it here.
