Whatcha Reading? Meme

I really really really wanted to participate in this meme. And Lisa’s introduction to the meme made me want to answer it even more because I do the same thing. I’m drawn to readers like dogs are drawn to foul smells, like children are drawn to anything clean and/or breakable. I might be on the introverted side, but I will approach a reader 9 times out of 10 just so we can talk books.

But…*sigh* I’m reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix right now. Interesting, yes, but a boring answer for this meme! And I was lucky enough to be sick last week so I got to read read read, but I indulged myself in Laurell K. Hamilton’s The Killing Dance and Mitch Albom’s One More Day. I would be tempted to review or mention One More Day, but it was just okay. There’s not a whole heck of a lot to say about it. Prior to that, I read Stones From the River by Ursula Hegi…could I possibly go back 4 books to answer this meme? I don’t think so…so I think I’ll just wait to complete this meme until I’m finished with Harry Potter and pick up something a little more literary.

In the meantime, here’s Lisa’s meme, and feel free to answer it here!!

I’m a reader who is always looking for a good book recommendation from friends, neighbors, people on planes, in waiting rooms, at the library.. wherever I happen to be. I find myself saying, “Whatcha reading?” several times a week!

In this meme, I’d like to know 5 things:

1. Whatcha reading?

2. How much of it have you read so far?

3. What’s it about? (in a nutshell! A sentence or two is enough)

4. What does the title refer to?

5. Would you recommend it?

    I just finished NO Country for Old Men and though it’s style is – oh, I’m SO bad with describing what I want to say! Cormac McCarthy spells like it sounds for dialogue… and for me, that’s difficult until I get the hang of it. But I enjoyed this book. There’s some philosophy and questions about changing times. People with no soul; scary violence. But I enjoyed it and can’t wait to see the movie. Happy New Year! Have a Great 2008, Care

    Wow! Did you read The Road by Cormac McCarthy? What made you decide to read No Country for Old Men? The movie looks so bleak, and The Road didn’t really do it for me, I hadn’t planned on reading any more of his books.

    Gosh, what a little inspiration will do! Two new posts today and a new one to post tomorrow (I can’t use up all my ideas in one day…). I wasn’t going to blog about this nightmare last night, but I had to laugh at your comment, Lisa! I wish I was having better dreams…

    hi again, no, I haven’t yet read The Road. I read NCFOM because I love the Coen bros and Jarvier Bardem and the NCFOM was in my face at that moment. I wanted to buy 2 books, one being Anna Karenina and well, actually I bot NCFOM to give to my Dad for his birthday. but I wanted to read it first… I guess bleak is a good word for it. I have absolutely no idea about the Road.
