    I am not a big reader, but I did pick up some reading as of lately. I had to read 'The Dilbert Principle' for my management class. If you're a fan of the Dilbert comics and want some insight on management in businesses, its a good read. Now I've just started reading '7 Habits of Highly Effective People,' but I'm not in it very far.

    Chose some books out of our own library. I have cataracts, so my reading time is precious little, because it is so difficult.

    Two "Pogo" books, because Father read Pogo every day in the comics in the 1950s. The authort wrote mainly political satire for the comics in the newspapers then.

    And I am looking over three different Bibles, trying to figure out which one to use as my main one, because of the cataracts. The nice, light ones have print that is too small, of course, but the ones with bigger fonts are SO heavy!

    Just finishing up the Outlander series. I'm interested next in the Anita Blake series, Wheel of Time series, and Sky Chaser series. Not sure which one I'll start first.

    Ghost Story by Peter Straub and Playful Parenting by Lawrence Cohen. I've been meaning to read Ghost Story ever since I readThe Talisman by King and Straub as a kid, but Straub was too difficult for me then.

    I've also been on an Agatha Christie kick lately, and just finished the first Poirot and the first two Marple mysteries.

    I'm reading Freedom by Jonathan Franzen right now.

    A recommendation I have if you want to pick up physical copies of books for cheap is to go to your local Goodwill. My sister is a teacher and just found a nice hardcover box set of The Hunger Games series for her students for less than $5. I picked up three books, Delicious, Omnivores Dilemma, and Founding Brothers for around the same price.

    The Heavenly Table

    .... by the best *kitten* author you've never heard of, Donald Ray Pollock

    His previous work titled: "The Devil All The Time" happens to be one of the best 5 books I've ever read (and I read a lot).

    Just started reading the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu.

    I've just begun to start to understand it, but have already put some of it's wisdom to use in determining how to approach a complicated situation at work.

    Reading means having more than 10 in a block to sit down in a quite place and look at the words..... so I don't read, I don't ever have time to myself.
