I tried starting the Galbadon book "Fiery Cross" but was offended by the Irish & beastiality jokes at the very beginning. How crude! That really derailed my interest in reading the book. I remember I didn't find the books before this one that interesting; only the original Outlander was very good, IMHO.

So I retreated into the safer world of Juvenile Fiction (my daughter the librarian chuckles at me here) and read 'The Magician's Nephew' this week. Its by CS Lewis, and is the first in his Narnia series. I had never read the whole thing, and enjoyed it quite a lot. Next comes 'The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe' which I want to read before it comes out on film later this year.

Oh, and I did read a little book called 'A Year By The Sea' by Joan Anderson... its a very thought-provoking book for women who are within spitting distance of middle age. wink.gif

Been reading "How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day" by Michael J. Gelb. Not to sound conceded or anything but I've already done/am currently doing some of the things outlined in the book. smile.gif

It includes: keeping a notebook (in which many writing prompts and ideas are included to spark creativity), drawing/painting, listening to music, and even cooking! I recommend it for any Renaissance man/woman!

Right now I'm reading the Serenity Falls series by James A. Moore. It's new horror series and I have to say he's a very good author.

SB! What are you talking about "crude Irish and beastiality jokes?" I don't remember those. unsure.gif Well Diana's books aren't for everyone and I guess they're not for you. tongue.gif wink.gif

Oh it is right at the beginning where Jamie has a bad dream about himself being crowned as an Irish king and part of the initiation involves him and a mare. It's just an offensive joke to me and I thought it unnecessary to the story... not a pleasant way to begin a novel. The Irish in me was offended.
Maybe I'm being too sensitive, but sometimes I can't help it... my emotions are barely under the surface and I react so quickly these days to the least thing.

Ok, now I remember! It's been a year since I read that novel and I just couldn't remember what you were talking about. Thanks! FC wasn't one of my favorite books in the series. It took me a long time to get through that one. There was a lot of things in that book that I thought could have been left out and just got on with the story. Not that anything offended me, it was just some things went on and on and I thought enough already. Let's get on with it! laugh.gif Thanks, SB!

Currently reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick. It is the piece of literature that inspired Blade Runner and countless other films I'm sure. He's also the same guy that wrote "Minority Report" which Speilberg made into a flick, also. Dick wrote a lot of stories following a peculiar encounter with a delivery woman wearing a pisces necklace that supposedly made Dick see many visions of Ancient Rome, Christ, and apocalyptic occurrences.

All in all, this is a wonderful book, a step up from most sci-fi of today.

Those are two of my favorite movies: Blade Runner and Minority Report! (And no, Rose, not just because they have Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise starring in them. tongue.gif )

The stories are just so unusual, quite creative & unique...

I was introduced to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings from a close friend a couple of years before the movie version was created. Since the movie release I've fallen into the habit of reading the books this time of year and so last night I've started once again on that epic journey... Prologue 1. Concerning Hobbits...

smile.gif That's a nice habit to get into. I read them every spring for about 15 years when I was younger.

I really have to get started on the Narnia books unsure.gif . Probably this week.

Well been reading books about the culture and dress of the folks of the 18 c. Very fascinating indeed. Now I am back to reading and finishing the book about the brave women of the Scottish women of the 45 called "Damn Rebel Bitches, The women of the 45." Fascinating and very good book

I haven't read "Minority Report" yet but "Electric Sheep [Blade Runner]" was interesting. Nothing like "Blade Runner" of course, but very inventive and hilarious.

Currently been brushing up on my drawing/painting skills so I've borrowed a book on figure drawing from the local lib. Gonna add to the collection, hopefully get some work posted here on Highlander!
