We could always start a book club here to discuss what we're reading. It would need to be organized to get everyone on the same page (reading the same book at the same time). Book humor - I kill me.  :P

Just a thought.

I'm in, as long as we pick a book I can get at my library (for free!)

House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III

That's a good one! Very dark, but good. Very well-drawn characters.

I love how he writes, I just get so sucked into the books that I lose track of time (and usually end up reading till the wee hours of the morning, lol)
It is pretty heavy reading sometimes, but so worth it. 
I am also a big fan of Wilbur Smith (apparently a new one by him in April)

Just finished The Bourne Ultimatum by Robert Ludlum. It was decent but not nearly as entertaining or fast-paced as the first two novels.

Vertigo40, I loved the first two Bourne novels. Haven't read Ultimatum, but I appreciated how in the movie they actually made some reference to the book's backstory.
