Peacful Journey - Shelley Lynne Cummins - a book of a few yoga poses, yantras, and aromatherapy, which came with a cd ith mantras on it. I've had it for years, and this might be a re-read.

Motherless Brooklyn - Jonathan Lethem - I lived in Brooklyn for at least part of the time covered in this book. Stylistically very interesting, and not too bad for an "arty" sort of book. A decent mystery as well. I don't see much re-read value, and won't be keeping it.

Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things - Steketee and Frost - nook - fascinating book. I recognized a lot of the behaviors in the book, both from myself and others, and I am thankful that I managed to not follow that path....

Where's My Cow? - Terry Pratchett - fantastic! especially if you already know Discworld.

Go the F*** to Sleep - ??? - I can only imagine it's better if you have a child, and I thought it was amusing.

The Constant Gardener - John Le Carre - Suspenseful read; new bad guys, now that the USSR is no more....

Fair Game - Patricia Briggs - I think the best of the Alpha/Omega series, and just the right substantial fluff I needed....

North and South - Elizabeth Gaskell - Absolutely amazing. Seriously, I think the author is every bit as good as Austen, though with a different tone, and certainly better than Dickens.

The Merchant's War
The Revolution Business
The Trade of Queens - Charlie Stross - really, I was probably in these at just the time that I posted the last book thread about 7 weeks ago. Excellent series, recommend.

The Glenstal Book of Prayer - should technically be in 2012. Oh well. I am looking for new and interesting prayers, and this book had some of those in it.

The Snow Queen - Mercedes Lackey - again with the substantial fluff. It's that type of life for me right now, folks!

The Faded Sun: Kesrith
The Faded Sun: Shonjir - C. J. Cherryh - (I'm in the middle of the third now.) Interesting story of an after-the-war, of interstellar politics, and of cultures that don't really understand each other.
