hello Rindy! Well what can I say? The Fiery Cross is a very big book and half of it consists of one day! I know! I got extremely frustrated with it, but if you hang in there you will learn lots to prepare you for the next book. And if you read "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" before me (the 6th book in the series) then good on you! tongue.gif

I've been going back and forth between my Elizabeth Peters books and the Gabaldon ones. I'm at the beginning of the newest Peters book and about 200 or so pages into Dragonfly in Amber. Of course, it's my second time through that one. Did I tell y'all that my eldest daughter met Diana Gabaldon last year at a book festival thing up in Dahlonega? She got one of the newer books autographed for me. Have y'all read the Lord John book? Comments? Recommendations?

Also, I just Googled Diana Gabaldon and came up with the book title "Cross Stitch" and this:

In 1945, Claire is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon in Scotland. Innocently, she walks through a stone circle, and finds herself in a skirmish taking place in 1743. Now, she is in danger from the shock of her own desire for James; and is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

I didn't know this existed. Anybody???

Hello pretentiouswombat! There are many here who know of Diana Galbaldon's books. In fact, she has her own thread in the "Book Stop" forum. You can find it here.

http://www.celticradio.net/php/forums/inde...?showtopic=6310

Oops! Forgot. "Crossstich" is the British title for the same book called "Outlander."

Hope this helps. smile.gif

Thanks for the link, CR! And you know what? I googled the title of that book and it turns out it's Outlander but printed in England and Australia, apparently. I read a couple of posts on Amazon.com where people had bought the book, thinking it was a new title, and they were disappointed that it turned out to be something they already had. Mystery solved!

I'll see y'all over on the Gabaldon thread!

I am just finishing a "Star Trek" novel by William Shatner. I have a pile of books on my home office desk waiting to be read. One is a new Tom Clancy novel, two Histories (one is on Michael Collins), and one of the the First American Series by the Gears. Need more time, reading is my relaxation when I can find enough time.

I'm reading the book Parish The Thought by John Ruane. It's his memoir of growing up Catholic in the 1960s. He grew up in one of my neighboring parishes on Chicago's Southwest Side.

I'm alternating between The Spiral Staircase by Karen Armstrong (a memoir) and Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (aka, the Yarn Harlot). I'm a bit on a non-fiction kick - finished Gordon Ramsay's book (another memoir) earlier this month.

Am I correct to assume that there's some salty language in Gordon Ramsey's book biggrin.gif ?

Gordon uses salty language the same way we use oxygen to breathe! Salty, peppery, you name it. His language runs the gamut of spices!

I really found it very interesting to read about his background. He has definitely earned everything he has accomplished - my hat's off to him. I was asking my 13-year-old daughter if she could handle working for him. We talked about how you want to apprentice with the best if you want to be the best but, boy, what a challenge it would be and the stress - wow!

However, saying that, I aspire to be the Gordon Ramsay of grammar. Everytime I correct my kids on some sort of improper grammar usage, I tell them I'm just working toward that end. tongue.gif

As 90% of what I read is History I am currently coming to the end of A History of Clan Campbell Vol. 1 (From Origins to Flodden) by Alastair Campbell of Airds. Awaiting the arrival of Vol. 2 (Flodden to Restoration).
