Right now, I'm reading Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets for the umpteenth time.

May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

I started reading The Lord of the Rings to my little boy about a month ago, I had forgotten how much Tolkien liked to describe scenery but also how much the movies had left out, like Tom Bombadil.

It seems to be my time to lose books, I was reading "How the Irish Saved Civilization" then lost it. I started "The Brightest Day, The Darkest Night" by Brendan Graham and lost it as well. Anyone know a book about how not to lose things?

I'm afraid I can't help you there, as I often have similar problems, I'm re-reading one of my favorite books, Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I just finished Scarlett (by Alexandra Ripley), a "sequel" to Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I was a little aprehensive at first, as the chances of finding a great sequel are affected immensely when based on a classic from a different author. I read it, and I absolutely loved it. It begins at Melanie Wilkes' funeral not long after Rhett left. The characters were spot on, and the amount of story and history that Ripley incorporated was wonderful! The book explores Scarlett's Irish roots, which was a major plus for me! I so enjoyed reading the book that I looked forward to reading it all day. It's splendid to have a book like that, I think it's important to go on those adventures. For me, this was the book I needed. smile.gif

QUOTE (CelticRose @ 28-Jan-2004, 02:47 PM)
I am reading The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon. It is the fifth book of her series. Although she is mistakenly put in the category of "romance" writer and I have her in the Historical romance thread. She is really a fiction writer who writes about historical events and puts a fictional love story within the books. I know in her first book she was not very accurate in her dealings with Scottish history, having never stepped foot in Scotland before she wrote her first book, Outlander. She actually wrote the novel for fun and never intended for it to take off like it did! She was a researcher at the University of Arizona for many years has since been to Scotland and has done a lot of research since and even wrote several books to the Outlander series. The main characters have left Scotland after the battle of Culloden and have been in the states dealing with other matters, such as the Revolutionary War. I am particularly interested in this period as my 3rd great-grandfather and some great uncles of mine fought in this war.

So what about you?

I'm re-reading the series...again. I broke down and bought the Kindle collection recently, so I'm starting all over with Outlander and hoping to be done when the new book comes out this year. Since my first name is Clair and my husband was called Jamie as a boy, I bonded with these characters like no others--that and my ancestor fought in the militia in Carolinas, so I feel that maybe he could have encountered Jamie and Claire during the Revolution. Now if she just works in a story about Fishing Creek or Steele's Fort, I will be certain. angel_not.gif
