I'm always reading.....
lately, I think, just to get away from real life! lol

the latest: started the Sharpe's series by Bernard Cornwell. Starts in 1809 and follows an English Lieutenant's career against the French.

also have read: "Fields and Pastures New" and currently reading "A Friend of the Flock" both by John McCormack. Tells of his first years as an Alabama country veterinarian. similar to James Herriot's stories.

I really enjoy her books. I like to read Canadian authors when I can. I gather she is like her main character in that she also commutes between Virginia and Quebec. I read all of Gail Bowen's books too. Wonderful for anyone who has spent any time in Saskatchewan, she describes all the places so well and with such affection.

I am reading "The Wine Bible," by Karen McNeill. It's a great read as well as being extremely informative.

Has anybody read The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Stetterfield? It was reccomended by Barnes and Noble, but I was debating wheter or not to wait until it came out in paperback.

I do that also, Raven, - read books sometimes to find out why everyone raves about them, --infact, even when I don't really care for the book from the getgo, I'll still continue to read thru to the end, as "must" see if the book improves as it goes along, (when everyone has praised it so highly) --or to find out if I really didn't like it at all, even when I'd read the entire book :)
That was how it was with the first book in the Mitford series by Jan Karon. Just could not see what everyone was raving about! But kept on reading, as found it hard to believe that I didn't care much for it, after all the praise. I got so annoyed at Father Tim for not being able to make up his mind, re the romance.
But I did begin to like the book, and read most of the series one after the other, and really loved them. So am glad I persisted, but it took a long time for me to get into that first book in the series.

Just finishing up Fork It Over by Alan Richman. A great read and so much fun enjoying his eating adventures. I recommend it to anyone who loves food and loves to read!!
