      Why not indeed and more ambitious than the back of a cereal box which is what I thought you might say.

        I finished the cereal box last month. I'm planning on reading the sequel, "Peanut Butter Crunch", after I finish what I'm on now. I hear good things about it.

          I had begun reading "Paradise Lost" but that was more than 3 years ago, haven't really had the time to set and enjoy reading a book

                    Ghettoside" A True Story of Murder in America -- Murder in Los Angeles written from the POV of the detectives. Hard to say it's a book one 'enjoys' but it's as enlightening as it is heartbreaking.

                      Yeesh. I feel so plebeian. I'm reading (well, listening to the audio book) Dresden Files: Turncoat.

                            Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities — Amy Stewart

                            All about the poisonous qualities of common plants. Basically, everything that’s not sold as supermarket produce will probably kill you. Horribly. The end.

                              Just a light summer read, then?

                              My best friend's grandmother used to pick mushrooms that grew near their summer house in Michigan and I was always afraid they'd kill her, or me, which is why I never ate any.

                                It kind of is, actually. Written in small bite-sized portions, so to speak. :-)

                                Just happened upon this story this morning, btw. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/death-ca...inkId=38289512

                                  I am also reading The Purple Cloud, by M. P. Shiel, published in 1901. It's well-written and interesting, and also a portrait of the time in which it was written, even as is Mary Shelley's 1826 novel, The Last Man. Though Purple Cloud has a happier ending... I'm often led to read stories by backtracking from the shows or movies I've seen recently that are... adaptations of these old classics. I'm hearing good things about The Last Ship tv series, even as it irritates me because I read the book. That, too, was a rather good book. NO, no, I promise you that I do, in fact, read non post-apocalyptic stories. Honest!

                                    SEE! That said she did live to be 101 so perhaps she knew what she was doing.

                                        And now I'm reading Rebecca Neason's Shadow of Obsession. Eventually, I'll have more to say about that. How is Picardy pronounced?

                                          "From the mixed-up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" by E. L. Konigsburg. It's a children's book about a sister and brother who run away and hide in the NY Museum of Art. This book was recommended by Gillian Horvath.

                                            My nephew who used to hate ready, read enjoyed and gave me a copy of "The Martian" so I'll be reading it.

                                            Hopefully he reads what I gave him - "Dragon Egg."

                                              Now I'm reading (or rather, listening to the audiobook) Skin Game, 15th official book of the Dresden Files.
