If you're on a break, are you reading for "fun"? - page 5

Are you reading for "fun" right now instead of nursing books? I just finished The Beach by James Patterson I'm now reading I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb. Pretty good so far - it's... Read More

    I read Skipping Christmas a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was cute except the dad kind of bugged me. If you like suspense with unexpected twists you would love Harlen Coben, he writes excellent suspense books

    **Thanks-Harlen Coben sounds like my cup of tea!

    i started reading the left behind series 2 years ago but then i decided to go school so i quit reading them. so this christmas break i decided i can't go a whole semester without reading something other than text. so i went back to the first book and am just skimming back through to refresh. i am going to do this with all of them until i am caught up. i really like these books they are christiam science fiction about the rapture (end of the world).

    I caught up with my Harry Potter reading. Read Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix! Exellent books. JK Rowlings is such a wonderful writer. My son Ben got a couple of Lemony Snickets books for Christmas and he is reading those. He highly recommends them, so we will see about them for spring break!
    The Harry Potter boks are great! I've read all 5 of them within a month's time. Couldn't put em down!!!!!!! They are some of the best "adventure/fantasitical" books i've ever read. I recommend these books to anyone young and old!

    I am reading Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. I saw the movie a few years ago and read the author's other book, Little Altars Everywhere, but never got around to reading this one.

    I borrowed The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom from my mother, so I can read that one next.

    I love to read fiction and missed it so much this past semester!

    After I read Jackie Collins...I dove into Martina Cole...wonderful author from overseas...now I'm reading Shiela OFlanagan. These authors from Ireland and the UK are the other "white meat". They are brilliant! AND FUNNY?!?!?!

    Awesome.

    I love to read, but as you all know in school if it is not a text it is not getting read no time soon. So, during Christmas Break I have taken advantage of FREE TIME~~~~~~~~~~
    I read"Let's Roll" about Todd beamer (aboard flight 93 that crashed in field Sept 11th)and his family. It goes into his life and those he touched thru his life and is told by Lisa Beamer his widow. EXCELLENT READ!!! Very christian centered. I also love Mary Higgins Clark and have re-read "Loves Music Loves To Dance" good mystery novel.

    I read The Five People You Meet in Heaven, a good book and easy read. I finished it in two days or so.

    I am currently reading Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl, and have given up on Anna Karenina, this was one Oprah pick I couldn't get into, even 300 pages or so.

    Also a good one I finished is If the Buddha Married, very interesting perspective. Going through nursing school, my marriage needs all the help it can get!!!

    Who wrote this one? It sounds interesting.

    You and I seem to have similar tastes in reading.

    I'm with y'all!! Reading for pleasure is what I've missed most! I began the Holidays with meaningless trash such as US Weekly, In Touch, and Star. I have since graduated to James Patterson's The Big Bad Wolf.

    I must admit that I had a moment of weakness and went out & purchased a Med-Surg Nursing Made Easy book to read....just to get ready for this semester! I'm also going to purchase my books today...some people are already reading...I don't want to miss out! :chuckle

    Pathetic lives of Nursing Students!!!
    Happy Studying!
