Just finished The Blind Assassin by Margret Atwood.  It was really good but different than any other novel I read of hers.  Now I need to find something light before I dive in to Oryx and Crake.

I could read them all over again and again.  In fact, I have!

Oryx and Crake is a GREAT book! I read it about 7 years ago or so and I still find myself thinking about it. Margaret Atwood is brilliant. Enjoy!

I have it in my pretty little hands right now.  I'll bring it home with me tonight and if you ever decide to come and drink that 12 pack with me, it's yours LOL.

Seriously though, I just can't stomach The Stand.  It's boring the hell out of me.  I need a good thirller preferably post apocalyptic.  Nothing has satisfied me since reading Swan Song.  Well, except for H.P. Lovecraft.  But those are just short stories.  I need a good long read!

Try The Road, from Cormac McCarthy.  I only read part of it for a class, but it was pretty post-apocalyptic and all.   I might still have my copy around here somewhere.  After my move if I find it, it's yours.

Already read it and LOVED it.  Not as good as Swan Song but very disturbing indeed.  There were a few parts I had to actually close the book.  I saw the movie also and loved it!  They did a great job!

A thriller that's post apocalyptic.....I would say play Fallout 3 but I know you don't like video games.   Hmmm....well there is a book called Night Watch.  Its a book by a Russian author who's name escapes me.  There's actually a full series though I only read book 1.  I liked it but I can't remember where my copy is.

Oh, its not that I don't like video games.  I was addicted at one time.  Since the kids got older and my Playstation became obsolete, I just never invested in a new system.

The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer. Then I'll be caught up with all of his novels.

I picked up Moneyball at the airport to read on the plane.  Very good book so far.  It has a lot more statistics than I thought it would but despite that the over-lying story is excellent.  I can't wait to see the movie now.
