Talk about crazy with a capital C. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is some real crazy. I read this book on my way to and from Vegas. It's one of those books that keeps you guessing and suprised until the very last page! If you think you know someone who is crazy, you dont know crazy until you read this. (Yes, I know I used the word crazy 5 times in this post. Maybe I'm going a little crazy too.  Oops, now it's six times.) A New York Times best seller. Book description taken from Amazon: Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

I just started The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. A young adult book, it centers around what would happen if the rotation of the earth suddenly started to slow down. Although it is for young adults, it's another great book in the likes of Harry Potter or Hunger Games, where adults will like it too.  Listed as one of Amzaon's Best Books of June 2012. Book description taken from Amazon: On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life—the fissures in her parents’ marriage, the loss of old friends, the hopeful anguish of first love, the bizarre behavior of her grandfather who, convinced of a government conspiracy, spends his days obsessively cataloging his possessions. As Julia adjusts to the new normal, the slowing inexorably continues.

Anthony gave me a Kindle for my b-day and I'm really enjoying it. I've a lot of little tricks to learn still. I heard you can "borrow" books from other people and it can read aloud. I didn't know if I would like not having a hard copy to hold but I really like the digital format. I don't have to hold the pages open and can use my hands to do other things...cook dinner and other stuff.
