I just finished reading Stephen R. Lawhead's "Song of Albion" trilogy, and I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who enjoys Celtic-themed fantasy novels. I really hated seeing the series end! I'll definitely be re-reading this one!

wacko.gif I've been reading a lot just lately.

I just finished "The Shanghai Murders" by David Rotenberg - not bad at all. In fact if I find a copy of his "Lake Ching Murders" in a recycled bookshop, I'll bring it home. biggrin.gif

Tonight I finished "Local Knowledge" by Conor Daly which is okay for golf fans, but not quite what I was hoping for. unsure.gif Somehow I got it into my head that this was an Irish novel, but is about a golf pro in Westchester County, New York who finds himself involved in murder, theft, muggings and other other undesirable past times. tongue.gif

I've just started "The English Assassin" by Daniel Silva, which is proving to be quite a good read so far.

Well, for me it's time to reread the Harry Potter series. I'm on the sixth book now. I read them along with the hintbooks put out by Wizarding World Press. For the first five books I would read one chapter in the book and then the analysis in the hintbook. I'm glad I took my time and read them this way at least once. Very inciteful.

I'm also reading a manuscript for the first book in a YA trilogy (I'm proofreading and doing some light editing) and reading several books on writing while taking a class in fiction writing. Keeping busy!

I just finished reading "Awaiting the Moon" and "Awaiting the Night" by Donna Lea Simpson. It is a book set in Germany, with a paranormal twist. Yes, it is a historical romance, but with a mystery as well. I will be eagerly waiting the release of the next one in this series as well.

I'm currently reading "Terminal Man" by Michael Crichton. I just recently discovered Crichton's books, and I'm really enjoying them so far!

biggrin.gif I agree, SisterKnight, that "White Smoke" was a very interesting book as are all of Andrew M Greeley's books. I particularly enjoy the "Irish" series with Nuala Anne McGrail. wink.gif Did I spell that correctly?

For another really good book on the election of Popes and such, pick up a copy of "The Accidental Pope". Author name escapes me at the moment but I'll bet your local library could find you a copy.

A very strange tale called "Cowboy Feng's Space Bar and Grill" by Steven Brust. A band that plays Irish music is in a bar jumps through time and space just as the place they were is getting nuked. band.gif

I'm reading The Bride Over the River Kwai by Pierre Boulle. It's pretty good! I was afraid it would be slow, but it's not. It's kept my interest!

I just finished In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick. It's about the whale attack on the Nantucket whaling crew of the Essex. A nice book taking in accounts of crew members and how one survives on the open sea for months at a time.

Next up: In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson, and the new Tolkien book, Children of Hurin....

I just finished Violin by Anne Rice. It was the first book I have read of her. I really liked it. It kept me guessing the whole time of what would happen next with the ghost Stefan

Sounds like you all are reading wonderful novels! Wish I could say so, but I am having to study and read books on photography right now, although I do enjoy it, but miss my novels as well. Thanks so much for sharing!

CR, what are you learning about? I would love to be able to take great pics, but for some reason I shake to much and my pics always come out blurry sad.gif

Hey! Lady of the Loch! If you would like, I could start a thread in the photography section and we can ALL help each other out! I have some ideas on how to take more sharp photos and perhaps others do as well. I am having to learn digital SLR photography, which is a breed all in and of itself! I love it, but not like the old days. Anyway, I'll probably start a new thread there, so keep a look out! wink.gif

Right now, I'm reading A Right To Be Hostile, which is a collection of The Boondocks comic strip, and It Can Happen Here by political analyst Joe Conason.
