I am huge Diana Gabaldon fan. However, I only got half-way through A Breath of Snow and Ashes and that was it. Got busy with other things. Bought her book after that, "An Echo in the Bone," never started that book. Now I hear she is coming out with a new book in the series this year!! Oh my! Guess I should have started the Outlander series all over again in preparation. I will do so when I finish Liz Curtis Higgs Scottish series first as there is about 4-5 books in it, too wink.gif

I'm only reading two books at the moment (if you leave out the ladies bible study book)- Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" and Carola Dunn's "Gone West" a cozy mystery based in 1920's England

DesertRose,

Have you read "Into the Wilderness" by Sara Donati? A friend of mine at work is a huge fan of Gabaldon and she said that Donati mentions Ian and Claire in her books. . . I thought you might find it interesting smile.gif

I'm reading two books and listening to a third book on audio tape right now. "Sacred Treason" by James Forrester (so far so good), "Sappho's Leap" (might not finish sad.gif ) and Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden (which is really hard to remember how to spell...)


--------------------
DRAGON BLESSING

May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power

Tried to read the Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gabriel Kay. It is a trilogy. Read book 1, got half way through book 2 and gave up. I've read Kay before and like his work. But not this one.

I have read the whole series by Sara Donati so far, starting witj "Into the wilderness". Yes, Claire is meantioned there but I'm not sure if linking Sara Donati to Diana Gabaldon does her justice. She has her very own style of writing. I enjoyed the books a lot and may reread the series now, that I saw it mentioned again.

Recently I read the series "Wheel of time" by Robert Jordan and got drawn into this fantasy world all easily. I can recommend it, great stuff.

Just finished Diana Gabaldon "The Scottish Prisoner" Now I'm reading the Boy who met jesus for our Church's monthly book discussion. Can't wait for the Highlander TV series to start. At least we know who will be playing Jamie-now we need a Claire.

Working my way through a book about Teddy Roosevelt and his environmental activism. Way ahead of his time! Book is 800+ pages and I am only halfway through after 3-4 months.

Currently reading The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien and also Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (the third book in The Hunger Games series). Also reading the works of Robert Burns intermittently when the mood strikes.
