Nothing Like a Good Book…

I didn’t make it to the pool today. Matter of fact, I didn’t make it out of my bedroom for most of the day. It was raining outside, and on days like today there is nothing quite like curling up in bed with a good book. I had read the first two chapters of The Da Vinci Code on Tuesday – but the chapters are pretty short so that only put me maybe twenty pages or so into the book. As of tonight, I am three-fourths of the way through it with only 100 pages left to go. It is impossible to put down, and I can’t help but devour it.

I’ve always believed in the Gnostic Gospels, and I believe many of the theories presented throughout. It’s fascinating to me to read them in the context of the book.

I enjoyed the Da Vinci code tremendously. Like you, I couldn’t put it down. I feel silly saying this, but until I found out about the book, I had no idea these theories were being bandied about. Since finishing the DaVince Code I’ve picked up some of the books mentioned in it and am working my way through it. That reading, however, isn’t going as quickly, but that’s okay.

Oh geez, if there’s Gnostic theology in it, I’m going to have to read it, even though I really really really don’t want to. I’ve always had a soft spot for Gnostic theology.

i’m dying to read it… i just started reading a new chick lit (after not finishing another one)… but i’ve heard nothing but good things… i think i’ll pick it up on Saturday.

Kathy, if you want to save some bucks, you might want to ask Emily if you can borrow it (I am reading her copy and will be done by tomorrow) or you can borrow my copy that I’m going to end up buying. It’s the type of book I will definitely HAVE to read again at least 3-4 more times.

I am also going to pick up Angels & Demons, the first book. I feel like I’m reading them backwards right now.

By the way – I would love to read the other Meg Cabot book if you want to loan it out! 🙂 I loved the Boy Next Door one!

Christine – i want to own that book, however, i will see if i can get the other Meg Cabot books from my friend. she’s actually reading Da Vinci code, too… and i don’t think she’s started on them yet. i’ll trade w/ ya during one of the upcoming happy hours.

I loved that book! I’ve been obsessed with the Gnostic Gospels for a few years and I couldn’t wait to read The DaVinci Code.
I just finished Angels and Demons and I really enjoyed that as well.

Kathy – I would *love* to read the Meg Cabot book. I returned The DaVinci Code to Emily on Friday night, so I can’t trade it off to you. However, if you want to loan me the Meg Cabot one, I’m not reading anything right now and I’ll have plenty of time before the house closing to zoom through it.

Are you coming to the Happy Hour on Thursday? If so, I could get it from you then. 🙂 Let me know what you think!

That’s such a good book – i was the same way – i couldn’t put it down. It’s nice when those types of books come your way. It’s going to be interesting to see how they turn it into a movie.
