-I just finished Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen. It was absolutely hilarious. It may be initially a Chick Book, but I think guys would dig it, too. There's enough un-chick material, combined with humor, to interest a fellow.
I recomended Flights of love by Berhard Schlink
I'm reading three books right now: Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill, The Lost Cause by E.A Pollard (a Civil War book), and Different Seasons in french by your favorite author and mine. (Differentes Saisons) I'm always plodding through a SK novel in french-- it's a fun way to keep current in a foreign language that you might otherwise never have a chance to use. I'm not super-fluent and this means I read slower. I have to say, though, it makes the stories MUCH more suspenseful when you pay close attention to every word.
The Giver, by Lois Lowry. I think it's actually a book for kids, but it's a good story.
I am reading in these days "Three mistakes of life" this book so good every thing of life involved in this book.
Just finished The Last Werewolf by G Duncan (with a title containing "Werewolf", I never anticipated the amount of sex in it, interesting zig zags of personality formed from the English gentleman to the voracious Werewolf), and just starting State Of Fear by M Crichton.
I really enjoyed David Copperfield. It's a real classic and I found myself laughing a lot.
Now I'm reading Ashes by Scott Nicholson. It's a collection of short horror stories. This guy is real good. The flow of his work is very amazing. His writing is not tacky and pulls you into the tales just as Stephen does. I think I will become a fan of his. Very good writing.
