    I thought people could post up what book they are reading at the moment.

    At the moment I am reading M.K. Gandhi - An Autobiography.

    Have just finished "Here on Earth" by Alice Hoffman. It's the 4th Hoffman I've read and possibly the best. Based quite obviously on Wuthering Heights....A very enjoyable read!

    I've just started reading Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie and it's turning out to be really, really, really good.

    And, for anyone who is or has read Michael Crichton's new book already--how is it??? Is it as good as Timeline, better, or worse?

    Yes! I've also been reading chapter summaries to prepare. Even so, I'm afraid I won't remember who's who and who's doing what where.

    I'm reading "Dogs Bark, but the Caravan Rolls On: Observations Then and Now" by Frank Conroy, which is a collection of essays and "Child of my Heart" by Alice McDermott. I almost put the McDermott down because I smell tear-jerker and am not in that kind of mood, but she's doing a reading here next week, so I'm back to it.
