Right now I'm throughly enjoying "Timeline" by Michael Crichton. I didn't see the movie and I hear it's not that good. If you enjoy science fiction you will probably enjoy reading "Timeline".

I am still reading Glorious Appearing, the lasst book in the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. As soon as I finish that, I'll be reading Apocalypse Burning by Mel Odom, the 3rd book in a military Left Behind spin-off. Wonderful books! I highly recommend them!

ebendigo,

The only Micheal Crichton book I ever read was the Andromeda Strain, which I really liked! By the way, I like your avatar!

Hello Celticrose

I think I'll try that site. I read the last book by Karen Mooning the Immortal Highlander and it is good. So far I'm enjoying A Private matter.

Oh bye the way Rindy 1202 and Celticrose we may not be spring chickens but I wouldn't consider any of us "up in age".

Right now I am reading

The Legend MacKinnon by Donna Kauffman.

Here is the background:

Three centuries ago in Scotland a curse was born of the long-standing feud between the the Claren and the MacKinnon clans.
Now generations later, destiny has decreed that three women, the last of the Claren line, be granted one final chance to set things right.

Maggie, Cailean and Delaney Claren are three cousins who grow up unaware of one another - until an inheritance brings them together. Now mysterious journals and the deed to and ancient Scottish castle will bring them face-to-face with the warriors at the heart of the MacKinnon family, three brothers sentenced to cruel fates by a terrible curse. Duncan is trapped in the form of a ghost, Rory must live an immortal live alone and Alexander has been wrenched by time from the past to the present, with no way back. Ferociously compelling, dangerously relentless, they are bound by no mortal laws - except desire for the three Claren women. The journals speak of one key that can break the powerful spell. And finding that key will plunge them all into a world of unforeseeable danger and tantalizing desire....

Would be great to see you there gwenlee. It is just us ladies on a yahoo group discussing the Outlander books and we are deep in topic right now about........oops! I better not say cause it would ruin it for Rindy! I am glad you are enjoying The Private Matter. I have 10 more chapters of the Fiery Cross to read and I am then done!

Thanks for your encouragement about our ages, Gwenlee! We can still enjoy a good book about hunky men, eh?

I agree with you, ebendigo. I didn't like the movie too much but I definitely love the book!!

Current read is "Atlantis Found" by Clive Cussler.
I was actually surprised when I started reading one of his books, which I actually buy for the hubby, lol, that I liked it so much, of course, I should have had a clue, I love Raise The Titanic, a cussler movie, from his book!

I have read "Timeline", too, and I did like it, because it had more detail, but I will have to confess that I did like the movie, too.
I also read, "Eaters of the Dead", by Michael Crichton, but I have to say that it was very hard for me to get through the book. Though again, I love the movie that was made from it, "The Thirteenth Warrior".


I tend to be kinda eclectic when it comes to reading, I'll try anything once!

I finally finished The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon. I had a hard time getting through this book, but I did it and it did get better as I went along. The ending was so sweet between the two main characters and other things happened that made the ending good too. Now I am reading the author's latest book, Lord John Grey and the Private Matter. I am in Chapter 4 so not sure if I like it yet or not. I am missing the main characters from Diana G's other books greatly so I am having to adjust, I guess.

I am about finished with the outlander. I have been on this board so much I haven't had a chance to finish it. Rose do you think the Fiery Cross was worth it? Man that is a large book. It will be awhile before I get to that one. I can't wait to hold another one of her books. She is good. Have a great evening nice to hear from you again.

Rindy, as hard as the Fiery Cross was for me to get through it at first, it ended up being worth the read. If you are going to read the Outlander series by Diana, you must read The Fiery Cross.............as big as it is! Some parts I thought were a waste of time, but then I was reading through it so fast that I missed out on a lot and I bet when I re-read the series I will enjoy it all the more the second time around. Plus, Diana is coming out this year with book 6 in the series and you have to know what is going to happen in that book to our Jamie and Claire! Let me know when you finish Outlander and start on Dragonfly in Amber and let me know what you think.
