I've been reading The Master of Ballantrae by Robert Louis Stevenson, I love his books about Scotland, like Kidnapped and Catriona, Weir of Hermiston and other short stories.
Another writer I like is Nigel Tranter who has written loads of historic docufiction about Scotland and its heroes.

Wow - compared to all of you, I'm reading time wasters!

I've been going through a few titles just recently and have finished in the past week or 10 days:

1. Brad Thor's "Takedown" - a brilliantly paced account of a next 9/11. You really have to hope that terrorists don't read his books for ideas!
2. Diane Mott Davidson's "The Grilling Season" - mostly okay, but no classic.
3. Janet Evanovich's "To The Nines" - not bad but I won't rush out for another right away. My first Stephanie Plum story.
4. Anne Stuart's "Ice Storm" - an interesting story inside Britain's Anti-terrorist squad. A very well written book.

Two terrific titles - three if you count "1916" that I posted about before, and 2 time passers.

Well, I finished Sara Donati's Queen of Swords and will have to wait until early 2010 for her next book, The Endless Forest. I am also waiting for Diana Gabaldon's Echo in the Bone, possible Sept. 2009 release......always a waiting game rolleyes.gif

I think I shall visit my bookcase and pick up Diana Gabaldon's, Outlander. Start her series again and by the time I'm done, Echo in the Bone should be on the Local Bookstore shelves biggrin.gif

Unfortunately with soccer season in full swing my reading time has been drastically cut. But I do find that this is a good time to catch up on old magazine articles that I usually put off reading. Don't have quite the time to get involved in a good book, but the sporadic times that I can find fit in perfect for short magazine articles here and there. Right now I'm catching up on a years worth of Men's Health.

Dragonfly In Amber - Diana Gabaldon

It's been a pleasure revisiting her books, as I renew my memories of their adventures. wub.gif I had come across a few excerpts in her book that I didn't recall.....must have been dozing off, as I fervently wanted to continue the Chapter (one more paragraph.....just til the end of this chapter.....zzzzzz tongue.gif ). Continuous adventure and action with every turn of the page book.gif thumbs_up.gif

You cannot beat Sir Walter Scott's books for adventure so long as you can understand the language!
Then there is Geoffrey Archer, Harold Robbins and Jackie Collins for page by page intrigues.

I must admit that I enjoy Maeve Binchy's books. I've been holding onto "Firefly Summer" for some time but started off in it the other day. Binchy has a way of writing that really speaks to me - when she is describing something I feel like I can almost see it. It's a very good book - as far as I've gone & I expect no different to the end.

I've also got a couple of others on the go at the moment as I always do, but I'm not far eneogh in to them to have an opinion yet. Happy reading! biggrin.gif

I just finished reading "The Virgin Queen's Daughter" - a debut, I believe, by Ella March Chase. It was a really good read, but now I'm starting on a non-fiction "The Letters of Arbella Stuart." I'm always surprised by how little people know about her since Queen Elizabeth was using her as a possible heir against King James of Scotland. smile.gif

May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

Trinity, by Leon Uris. Concerning Ireland in the 19th and 20th centuries. It's been on my bookshelf for ages. Finally took it down to give it a read.

I love the Highlander series by Diana Gabaldon and can't wait for the next installment to come out this Fall...I hadn't however read her Lord John books...I bought the first one recently and it was a tiny bit convoluted following all the twists and turns of the "whodunit" it was a good read and I will definitely by buying the other three...any other Gabaldon fans out there?
