What are you currently reading?

I'm Sharon, mom to David, he'll be two y/o this month. I'm planning his Nemo party, any ideas would be welcome.

I'm currently reading "The Murder Book" by Jonathan Kellerman. So far so good.

Sharon

I'm Jess, otherwise known as O...

I'm re-reading Gloria Naylor's Bailey's Cafe

For the nemo party: I once made an "under the sea" cake with blue icing, goldfish crackers, gummy sharks, and star sprinkles. I used black licorice for sea plants too. You can even fill the middle of the cake with blue-raspberry jello (I've seen this done a lot in magazines like Women's Day) and it looks like water, but I've found that the kids kind of get freaked by the 'different-ness' of it and end up not eatign it with the jello. I've made this cake twice- once with the jell-o middle and once without; I worked so hard on the one with jello and no one ate it.. but they all ate the one that I made the next time without it!!! You could build an under water world for them to crawl through (depending on David's age, his friends might think it is lame if they are too old, but younger kids think it's awesome) just get a sheet and set it up like a very low and wide tent and decorate underneath it with underwater stuff like inflatable fish. I used an old sheet when I did this, so I was able to sew short strands of blue and green yarn to the sheet, so it moved over them like sea weed when they crawled. David could help pick out things to decorate; that would make him feel so helpful! Look for things in the wal-mart pool section. As the kids go thruogh you move the sheet up and down so it moves like waves... it sounds really cheesey now that I'm typing it, but my pre-school class thought it was the greatest thing....

Sorry for hi-jacking the thread Ooh, to get back on track, I'm also reading the Long Dark Teatime of the Soul by Douglas Adams

Ryan and I will be going to the library this afternoon to choose our next batch of books. I'm browsing for ideas....(I live in a very small town, but we have a surprisingly large library - lots of OPEN MINDED readers live here!)

I've only heard that book is the most rivetting... I love Oprah but I tried to read the bluest eye and couldn't get into it... I don't think her and I have the same tastes in books!

I'm currently reading a book about Ghosts, spirits, etc. :Visits from the Afterlife by Sylvia Browne. I can't put it down but I had a ghost experience that changed my thinking so.... anyway it's fun!

Heh, mostly I don't have anywhere near the same tastes as Oprah....

When she chose "Anna Karanina" by Tolstoy, that was a different story... LOL but that was only time I agreed with her tastes!

Currently reading The Jesus Conspiracy. I'm going to re-read Generation X by Coupland and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakuer(sp?) about the Mount Everest expedition in 96 in which several climbers perished.

Actually, I have already read it and am going to re-read it once I'm done with the Jesus Conspiracy. Into Thin Air is a really good book. The author is very descriptive and it is not bogged down with too many technicalities. I've also gone through "The Ghosts of Everest". It's about the expedition to find out what happened to Mallory, and when they found remains that they believed to be his. Another very interesting read, and of course I have the National Geographic book on Everest as well. My dh and I saw Everest on Imax when we were on our honeymoon over 6 years ago. It was amazing. Everest has always been of interest to me, so I read as much as I can get my hands on.

I'm so glad!!! I read the book from the Russian guide, who many people pointed the finger at... as well as from other perspectives... Did you catch the memorial on the Imax? Man, I still cry through it. Did you see how they grew the Texan's nose on his forehead on Discovery? It was awesome! Have you noticed how common the name Scott Fischer is now? (Just not the same dude!)

I have tons of picture books on the Himalaians, Everest, K2, as well as true adventures of hikers... I got the one you have too! It just the most interesting thing to read about people's sense of adventure. I have to admit, as thrilling as Everest is, K2 is the most interesting to me... I think because it's challenage.

Into Thin Air is my other half's favorite book!!!!!!

I was going to buy it for him so that he would have his own copy......
I may read it..

I watched that show "Everest" on Discovery channel but it is far to repetitive. I wish I could see the last episode but it never happens; always a re-run!
