I've just finished Into Thin Air. Quite the tale.

My 2010 book list includes the entire Nicholas Sparks back catalogue. How I hate myself.

How was the Dive from Clausen's Pier? I thought it looked good, but haven't read it yet.

I read The Shack a few weeks ago - my favorite part was when Jesus was talking about how he's not really a fan of religion.

Have you read the Millenium trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, etc.)? I just saw the first movie last week and now I really want to read the books.

Jess - I saw Nicholas Sparks bingo. Possible mindless Christmas Break Activity...

Lauren - I love 'The Shack'; but the momma God reminded me too much of the wicked black lady in the Matrix movies. I loved the part when God says he framed himself as a father-figure because he had a feeling more people would need on of those. Got me right *there*, you know?

I haven't read the Millenium Trilogy (I didn't even know they were called that) but I keep seeing them at the bookstore. If you read them, let me know if they're any good. Maybe I'll have time to read them at Christmas... maybe... :S
