  • Since I teach third grade, I have lots of opportunities to read quality children's lit and love it. But, I need an "adult" book. I'm not really into the "trashy novels" but I love mysteries and I'm getting more interested in the non-fiction genre. The last book I read was

    "Aging with Grace" about the nun study on the nuns of Notre Dame. It's about alzheimers disease. Very interesting about how they have studied over 600 nuns brains and whether or not they had the disease and what their occupations were etc. Anyway, fascinating.

    So, what should I read next??

  • Well, I'm not real big into non-fiction for my pleasure reads, but I can suggest some good fiction mysteries and suspense.

    The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
    The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom
    Eleventh Hour by Catherine Coulture

    Also, you should stop by the Reading Room here at TBC. We have several ladies that post and we're always tossing around titles for reading consideration.

  • I heard a radio programme that mentioned that study, and it sounded really interesting.

    I really liked "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" by Mark Haddon. It's a novel but it also taught me a lot about autism.

    I like non-fiction too and I read mainly history stuff. The last book I read was about the Middle Ages and it was by Norman Cantor. Fascinating but a bit of a heavy read. I keep wanting to read "A History of Reading" which I have at home, but I've not got into it yet.

    Do totally check out the Reading Room here, if you're a reader it'd be nice to have you be around there sometimes
