The Woman's Day Reading List

I took a peek. Some I have already read, some I want to read, and others I've never heard of. Have you read any of these? Any of them on your book-list for the summer? Discuss!

The Eight -- (chess anyone?)

I listened to this complex and detailed novel in the car. Nearly caused me to miss my exit a few times.

Robin Carr Series - Book 2 & 3

I have now finished the 2nd and 3rd book in the series -- which is really Chapter 2 & 3 of a very long book. As usual, everything turns out perfectly for the main characters.

Robyn Carr Series -- Virgin River, Book 1

MaMa has been hounding me to read this series for a while. It finally came up on my library booklist and I plunged in. Simple writing style, simple story, predictible -- but I got hooked on the characters nonetheless.
Reality isn't a factor, so forget about the fact that nobody has to worry about money ever and the seemingly utopian community -- it's still a fun read for the beach.
Contrary to what you might think, it does NOT make me long to live in an obscure, rural area. I"m reading the 2nd in the series now. (Shelter Mountain)
Chick-Lit warning to all you macho guys out there.


Okay, so I don't see 'eye to eye' with all of the material in this book, it still was worth the read and most of the principles were in alignment with my own values and beliefs. I liked the male vs. female perspectives.
