I'm currently reading "The Kite Runner" at the suggestion of a friend, and so far I'm enjoying it immensely.

Just finished Scar Tissue semi-by Anthony Kiedis, then started reading Narnia again. I am so torn.

What are you torn about? The Chronicles of Narnia is a wonderful series BTW. I just reread the first 2 books over Christmas break (probably for about the 8th time each) but when I went looking for the 3rd book in the series I couldn't find it...so I guess I'll have to make a trip to the library for it.

Oh...lol. Looking back, I didn't say that clearly at all. I received the whole 7-book series as a gift way back in the 5th grade. I know where all the books are, except the 3rd one seems to have gotten lost in my house or I lost it somewhere else. I've been looking through all my old boxes of books, but to no avail. Actually, I should probably invest in a whole new set of them (a few of them are missing their covers from being read so many times). Thanks for the link!

I had to buy the full set again as well, I lost a book or two. But it is well worth it, at least on the off time that you want to pick them up and read them again (I got through the same thing with LotR)
