Currently reading...

Crossfire, by Nancy Kress. A group of several thousand people settle a Planet some 70 lightyears away from Earth. Neat story. There are a lot of mysteries being hinted at, from the private lives of the main characters to the events driving the story, and normally I consider such a story a bit silly, but Kress writes well, and instead of slogging through the book I can barely put it down. I think there are a couple of sequels.

Another author that we've never read for the group, right? I know I've looked at Beggars in Spain before, looked like a really good read. With some interesting issues -- maybe a good book for discussion?

That is an excellent book. I loved it.
Right now I hate what I am reading
I'm bored with it. But there is something about it I can't put it down. So I have been catching up on other things around the house instead of reading Night of the Wolf by Alice Borchardt. I repainting my Livingroom and kitchen....

I guess even really awful books have a place... they make us motivated to do something else! LOL!
