I love the Highlander series by Diana Gabaldon and can't wait for the next installment to come out this Fall...I hadn't however read her Lord John books...I bought the first one recently and it was a tiny bit convoluted following all the twists and turns of the "whodunit" it was a good read and I will definitely by buying the other three...any other Gabaldon fans out there?

Welcome Emmalou! As LeeLee stated, there are a bunch of us DG fans. She has her own thread here the The Book Stop. Here is the link to find us:

I am reading 'The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers' by Angie Fox. I won a signed copied through the www.bittenbybooks.com website. This website reviews books about the paranormal.

I love this book. It is really full of action. The heroine is one that I can imagine being.

I have also read all but the latest book by Yasmine Galenorn. She has a series call 'The Otherworld.' It is about three half fae sisters. One is a werecat, one is a spellcaster, and the third has been turned into a vampire. They are on this side of the Otherworld trying to keep the demons at bay.

Check out both of the authors.

Just finished "90 Minutes in Heaven" by Don Piper. Very good book. Now reading "23 Minutes in Hell" by Bill Wiese. Boy! This guy didn't last long in hell. From what I am reading, I don't blame him! Yikes!

"Parish The Thought" by John Ruane.

It is his memoirs, about growing up in a Catholic parish, St. Bede The Venerable in the Archdiocese of Chicago, in the 1960s.

I have just finished "Wishful Drinking" by Carrie Fisher - a tortured, yet funny look at Carrie's life since electroshock therapy. As totally bizarre as her life has been, she actually seems to be quite grounded - now!

Today I finished "When Summer is in the Meadow" by Niall Williams and Christeen Breen - two Manhattan people who moved to a tiny farm in County Clare and their adventures. This is the second of 4 or 5 books that they wrote together.

I am currently reading "Extreme Denial" by David Morrell which is fiction about an anti-terrorist operative who walks away from a fiasco but finds his former life isn't quite done with him. I like David's books, he's up to nearly 20 of them and I enjoy the pace and style with which he writes.

So many books and so little time! book.gif

I'm reading Obsidian butterfly by Laurell K Hamilton .

I enjoy Laurell Hamilton but I have read her Meredith Gentry series. Laurell really knows how to treat the faerie. I am waiting for Divine Misdemeanors to come out in paperback at the end of this month.

I finished An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon and I must say it didn't finish like I thought it would. I can't wait for the next in the series.

Right now I am reading Haunting Warrior by Erin Quinn and An Irish Country Doctor by Patrick Taylor (depends on my mood biggrin.gif).

Has anyone read the Twilight series? I have seen two of the movies and I really don't get the cult following. I hope the books are better.

I agree with gcw57 "so many books so little time".

Flora , I did read the Twilight books a long time before the movie but I did not scream everytime the name is pronounce or looks like on a cloud .I don't really understand why there is so a great cult to that maybe because of the romance , young girl dream to be Bella and live a love story.Having two men ready to fight for a girl , who can resist?I think the reaction is just a little too much .

The books have more details and are easy to read.I receive them as a gift but I will probably not by it by myself because they are a little expensive(20-25$ in my currency) to compare to what I usually pay for an Anita Blake or Patricia Briggs (my actual reading today Ironed kiss) 10-14$.Yes they are smaller books but even the serie Sookie Stackhouse is less expensive ( 18$).

If you really want to read them , borrow them to someone you know or try to get it at the library.

Empire of the Summer Moon, by S.C. Gwynne. Its the story of the Commanche Indians in Texas. A fascinating history, many things I did not know. A very good read!

Been reading THE BURNING LAND by Bernard Cornwell, who is the author of the Richard Sharpe novels (you may have seen the Sharpe series on PBS). Its told in the 1st person of Lord Uhtred of Bebbanburg. "A rousing saga about the birth fo England and the legendary king who made it possible." Here is part of the promo:

"At the end of the 9th century, King Alfred of Wessex is in ill health, his heir an untested youth. His enemy, the Danes, having failed to conquer Wessex, now see a chance for victory. Led by the sword of svage warrior Harold Bloodhair, the Viking hordes attack. But Uhtred, Alfred's reluctant warload, proves his worth... but the sweetness of victory is soon overshadowed by tragedy..."

Here is an excerpt from Bernard Cornwell's official website:

Reading loads of books at the same time.

Right now I am reading Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach.

One of my favorite stories.

Also reading alongside Prince Valiant. My late father gave me his whole collection of books he had. So whenever I read those I feel closer to him.

Wow, you folks read some great books, on my desk is "The Story of Scotland" by Nigel Trantor. I know Trantor's books are usually thought of as "historical fiction" and indeed I do have a fair number his novels, but this one is is take on Scotland's history from his perspective as a Scotsman and novelist.

It is a good read and refreshing to read history from a Scot's point of view.

Started reading "Out of the Darkness: The Phantom's Journey" by Sadie Montgomery.

Finished part 1 the day before. I read sometimes several books at once. It's part 2 of a 6 book series about the Phantom of the Opera and what happened after he left the Opera House.
The reading order:

Phoenix of the Opera
Out of the Darkness: The Phantom's Journey
The Phantom's Opera
Phantom Death
Phantom Madness
Phantom Murder

I love to read those on my kindle.

It's a great series for all of those who love the story about the Phantom and what happened to him when he left (as shown in the movie).

I have a couple of books going right now. First off there is "Ascension Magick: Ritual, Myth & Healing for the New Aeon", by Christopher Penczak. It explores the roots of ascension and shows some common roots of the Lightworkers, New Agers, Pagans, Witches and other Magick workers. A very interesting and informative book.

I am also reading, "Changing Reality", by Serge Kahili King. It explores how what we believe is what we see. We create our reality through our beliefs.

And for fun, right now I am reading, "Dixie Divas", by Virginia Brown
