Bookworm lost without a read

Ok I know that I just posted but I need some help.

I am an avid reader and at the moment can't find anything to read! So anyone have any suggestions?

I like to read biographies, memoirs, fiction and the classics as well. NO romance or sci-fi.

Ok thanks
burnedout with nothin to read!


  1. I'm currently diving into She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Not very far in yet, but so far so good!

  2. a good memoir is carrie fisher's 'wishful drinking'.

    she's the one from star wars (sci-fi) but the book isnt about star wars at all. its about her struggles being bi-polar, suffering from depression, and drugs alcohol etc.

    she is hilarious

  3. I am reading Tao of Willie... yes, as in Nelson. It is a quick read but really sweet and upbeat for this time of year. I am in no way a country music fan, but he is just a genuine, kind man and he'll make you smile.

    Random, I know.

  4. Oh god...I wish I could suggest something to you, but I haven't read a book in ages.

    (that's because I'm on this damn computer all the time)

    But when I do read, I'm like you. Biographies and memoirs. I like reading real stories about real people.

  5. The Help; Official Book Club Selection; anything by Jodi Picoult; any of the Prey series by John Sandford; any of Philippa Gregory's historical fiction; anything by John Jakes....I could go on and on....

  6. Thanks everyone for your suggestions; I am gonna definately try that Carrie Fisher one-it seems to be right up my alley! Hey ron, put down the mouse and pick up a book will ya?! Happy Thanksgiving everyone

  7. I just finished In a Perfect World and The Good Thief. I don't know the authors because I am at work and the books are at home. Both were good stories. I like a good story. Picked them both up at Target on a Thanksgiving supply run this weekend. Sorry to post Anon, I don't have any of the options they offer, Kim.

  8. Confessions of a Wallflower
    The Time Traveler's Wife
    Forever (by Pete Hamill)

    Let me know what you end up choosing!
