Sharing about what we are reading is one of the best conversation starters that I know. It seems everyone has read a book they want to talk about or want to know about one they have seen at the book store or library.
I, for one, am a lover of books and read every day. I just finish reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Kaled Hoseini. Hoseini was the author of The Kite Runner and he has managed to give us another wonderful read.
Pattern Recognition by William Gibson was a book my son-in-law chose. I borrowed it from him and was glad that I did. It is a mystery story set in the London/Tokyo/Russia in the year 2002. The Internet culture and its depth of interaction made for an interesting scenario. This is the eight book written by Gibson and will not be the last I read by this author. I would recommend it .
The book club I belong to is going to read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen for it's next discussion. It looks like it is going to be fun to read and different from what we are accustomed to.
