I just started Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan this morning. (Got it for my birthday!) I can't believe that I have actually stayed with the series this long. The tenth book... and no end in sight? I still haven't decided if I should continue to read it when the next book(s?) come out.
What do you think? Should I or shouldn't I continue reading the series?

Just finished reading Holes by Sachar, loved it! Very satisfying fable.

I'm now deep into my second reading of Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brien. The book is so rich with imagery that I thought a movie would be almost superfluous. I was wrong! They're both fantastic!! Then it's on to Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair on two separate recommendations. I've been warned off The DaVinci Code by my ex-husband, but he's a bit of intellectual snob and loves to put down anything on the New York Times list (not the only reason I divorced him). The Kushiel trilogy looks promising, I'll look for it when my budget allows me to buy more books. As for Stephen King, I loved Bag of Bones and The Green Mile.

I read and enjoyed Lackey's Bardic Voices, at least up to #iv, are there more? I have Storm Warnings & Winds of Fate, but they're book ones and I like to collect at least the first three in a series if I'm already familiar with the author before I read them. I really liked By the Sword. Does anyone know if she continued this as a series?

I don't think so.. I only got I - IV anyway.

By the sword is with Kethry's daughter I think? As far as I know there is only that one. If you liked it you might like the Kethry & Tarma duology: The Oathbound and Oathbreaker (there's a book with the collected short stories as well which is called Oathbound as well I think..) the series itself is called Vows and Honor.

I've been on a book reading marathon of sorts. I finished reading The Hobbit, finished The Two Towers, and now have started The Return of the King. I haven't a clue as to what I am going to read next after The Silmarillion. Any recommendations?

You might try another fantasy classic, The Worm Ouroboros by Eddison written in 1935. I have it, but I've never read it and I'm curious to know if anyone else has read it and could comment on it. Or Silverlock by Myers - 1949 which I did read awhile and want to read again. Silverlock is the journey through a land filled with literary reference, many of which flew right over my head 15 years ago. I like to see what would land this time around.

I am half way through a book by Marjory Parker called Adventurers and Exiles The author lectures in Scottish history at University of Aberdeen. This book is about the Scottish diaspora - dealing particularly with Canada and Australia - but also takes in the USA, New Zealand and South Africa. It is a good book - if a trifle 'dry'! biggrin.gif

I just finished reading the book "Eleanor of Aquitaine" by Alison Weir. She also wrote the book "The life of Elizabeth I".

Eleanor of Aquitaine was known as one of the most beautiful women in Europe. She was the wife of two kings and the mother of three children. It discusses her involvement in politics and her influence over her husbands during a time when women were not to speak out publicly in court politics. Very good book!
