How is that book going Mike. I have never read it. Isn't that the big thick one or not?
I should go sit outside and read... rolleyes.gif

Hi everyone, I just finished Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I'm going to start reading The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. It'll be a quick read until I can get Dragonfly in Amber, which I hope to be starting this weekend!!

Moonchild, have a box of tissues with you when you read The Notebook! Hope you enjoyed Outlander. Let us know in the Gabaldon thread! wink.gif

I've done a bad bad thing - I quit reading a book halfway through, sped-read the last chapter to see how it ended, and have started a new book! fear.gif
Are the Bookreaders Police going to come lock me up?!?!?!

I was reading 'The Rising" by Jenkins/LaHaye, the prequel to the Left Behind series. I hate to say this, but the book is more interesting when its focusing on Nicholae's birth and childhood than it is Ray Steele's who is the good guy! And there is not one single incident in the book that makes you laugh or smile - that didn't dawn on me for the longest time but I did realize I felt vaguely negative when I'd put the book down.

Then I got the new Harry Potter book 'The Half-Blood Prince' and have had such an enjoyable read!! I know its not great literature, but its a good story. Lots of intrigue, lots of good dialogue, and lots of funny stuff too.

Right now I'm reading the Women of Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. I'm on the second book of three so far, Industrial Magic. I prefer the Kim Harrison books, like dead Witch Walking, etc., but this series is alright.

After this I don't know what's next. Maybe I'll go back and read the Magic Kingdom for Sale series by Terry Brooks.

Oh, man, am I in trouble then!

Well -- after reading all manner of versions of Arthurian legend, I finally bit the bullet and picked up Mallory's La Morte D'Arthur a few weeks ago. After getting used to the odd turns of language, I find it -- well, not exactly a page turner, but funny and moving (and here and there shocking, like when Gaheris kills his mum). It's easy to see now what kind of a spin all those other guys were putting on it (for example TH White and The Once and Future King) and how much they are really going back to it. I'm happy to report there's nothing so dry and quirky and old about the language to keep me from wanting to cry, seeing what's coming for the love triangle of Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere. And the beautiful way that TH White wrote the character of Gawaine, especially, is all there in Mallory.

I'd say it's been well worth hauling that fat, heavy little book around for a few weeks. smile.gif Oh -- I did have to interrupt it for Harry Potter, but then Harry Potter is in many ways based on Arthurian themes anyway. wink.gif

Oh SB! You are so dang funny! I kind of did the same thing this week. I quit in the middle of a book in a series too to read another book. However, I intend to go back to the other book and finish it so I didn't at least read the end. The one I am reading now is called................well I don't know if I can repeat it on here without a tos violation. laugh.gif It is about the women of the Jacobite Rising of the 45 though. A genuine history book...........seriously and very fascinating! I love reading about women in history. One time I read a history book about the prostitutes in the Wild West because I was curious as to what caused them to turn to that livelihood. Another fascinating book. rolleyes.gif

I am re-reading the 4th Harry Potter book now, because I don't remember exactly what was in that one & the movie is due out later this year. Oooh, wait, I do remember a nasty thing in the chair by the fireplace in the Riddle house... evil.gif

I've started the book and already am going 'oh yeah, so that's what that meant' because so many of these things were explained in the 6th book quite satisfactorily (IMHO)

Off to read!

Dang it, now where are those reading glasses....

I have been reading SARUM by Edward Rutherford, on and off for the past year. It is a richly imagined vision of history; an engaging piece of fiction and someday I may even finish it! smile.gif

I have been reading the latest Harry Potter book, The Half-Blood Prince. It's not a bad piece of literature, but then again I'm only on chapter 5. It's on .pdf and it gets rather taxing to read it on a computer screen. But all in all, it's a classic!

I've just finished the book late last week, and I liked it very much. So much is explained, the further along you get; a lot of loose ends get tied up, story-wise.

I'm reading Book 2 of the Codex Alera, Academ's Fury, by Jim Butcher. Great Author, and you should all check out the Dresdin Files, his other series.
