What's up to all my book reading sistahs!

What are you all currently reading? I'm looking for a really good book to read. Lately I've been selecting crap lately. Maybe, because all the new released titles by my favorite authors I've read.

I just got hold of "Disgrace" by J.M. Coetzee. I want to know what all the hubub is about. I also have "The Davinci Code". Can't remember the author's name though. Dan Brown or something sort of vanilla sounding.

"white teeth" by Zadie Smith (I know I am late at this). This a a great book : the style (satire, humour, details), the story. I am a new fan and waiting for the french traduction of "the autographe man".

Currently I'm reading The Good House by Tananarive Due. So far I really like it. I'm only on Chapter 4 though so I might change my mind.

- scifi: Chindi by Jack McDevitt
- fantasy: From the Dust Returned by Ray Bradbury (perfect for Halloween!)
- self-help: Sooth Your Nerves - The Black Woman's Guide to Understanding and Overcoming Anxiety, Panic and Fear by Dr. Angela Neal-Barnett

[White Teeth (Kaissa) and Bag of Bones (Honeychild) are great reads!!]
